It was both slow and steady without working nonstop, yet he reached the pinnacle of Hallyu fame and critical acclaim in a pretty short period of time.

Starting from his bit part playing a reporter in a scene in 2007 K-drama Get Karl Oh Soo Jung, his first real roles started in 2008 weekend drama My Precious You and erotic sageuk movie A Frozen Flower.

Then he went to the military and came back to blow his own career achievements away by the worldwide hit Descendants of the Sun.
