I refused, and after about 9 to 10 times, they said, "Why is that? Our company is good." What good companies they are. I replied, "I don't intend to be a celebrity. I just want dancing to be my hobby." When I was younger, I had only one dream, but it was too harsh and it was just a wound. But the interesting thing is, even though I have that wound, I still dance, still sing and act. Even though I was hurt, I wanted to do those things."

However, although the drama initially attracted a lot of attention from the audience thanks to the success of the previous film and the appearance of the couple Park Hyung Sik - Park Bo Young, the script later showed more and more holes. The film circuit is judged too slowly, while the construction of plots and contexts for the male and female leads lacks attraction.

Although in the last 2 years, Ong Seong Woo has been working movies and films have also been released continuously, but the audience is still not satisfied and really interested in any of his roles. In terms of acting, the former want to One member is still well appreciated and has a lot of potential for development in the future. However, the script he chose was not really impressive. Audiences hope to see more diverse roles in the future, as well as soon see a b.oom in one of his new films after his discharge.

However, recently, the audience of Ong Seong Woo's idol version was extremely excited when he performed with a few other idols on stage during a music show in the military.

The audience appreciated the passage of time, but Ong Seong Woo's "demagoguery" on stage did not diminish at all. On the contrary, there is also a strong feeling, more attractive than the previous day.
