Don't you love finding a rising actor who's just on the cusp of gaining fame? The adorable and talented Seo Ji Hoon is full of potential and has already made a strong impression in some recent dramas. Since you might not recognize him at first glance yet, let's find out more about him.

1. Seo Ji Hoon was born on April 25, 1997, making him a Taurus. With a height of 184 cm, he is a model who only just debuted in acting in the 2016 drama Signal, where his appearance in episode 14 was brief but pivotal.

2. The 21-year-old (in Korean age) studies theater and film at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, South Korea. With his cute looks, particularly in school uniform, he has played a very convincing student in notable high-school dramas such as Solomon's Perjury and School 2017.

3. When CNBlue's Lee Jung Shin went back in time in Longing Heart to find his first love, he actually encountered his younger self, played by none other than Seo Ji Hoon, who, in an interesting twist, became a romantic rival in the past. The drama further presented a unique surprie when the younger self was also able to time travel forward to the present time.

4. He already has a FB fansite set up by fans in Taiwan. Fans contacted his agency to find out how to translate the Korean actor's name (서지훈) correctly into Chinese, as the phonetic Korean characters could have multiple counterparts in Chinese, and the agency replied.

5. Misty viewers were left with a lingering impression of his portrayal of the younger Ha Myung Woo, whose impulsive action to defend his first (and forever) love reverberated with lasting impact throughout the entire story.

6. He is definitely a rising actor to keep an eye on. He's already signed up for a major role in a new fantasy romantic drama titled Tale of Gyeryong Fairy, which also stars Kang So Ra. He'll be playing a college student this time!
