Most People Don’t Know Actor Choi Hyun Wook Was A Professional Baseball Player Before Becoming An Actor

One thing is now generally known about actor Choi Hyun Wook, who starred as Moon Ji Woong in the hit tvN drama “Twenty Five Twenty One” and made his name and face well-known.

It’s the fact that Choi Hyun Wook has an odd background as a “baseball player“.

From the fourth grade of elementary school through the first year of high school, Choi committed himself entirely to baseball before making his acting debut.

Due to an elbow injury and surgery, he had to give up his baseball career and move to Hallym Art High School, where he began his career in the entertainment sector in earnest following graduation.

Choi Hyun Wook went on MBC FM4U‘s “2 O’Clock Date with Muzie & Ahn Young Mi” last month and discussed his past, which led him to become an actor.

Choi Hyun Wook stated at the time, “I sobbed a lot while watching a movie, and my friends who observed it asked me how it would be if I attempted acting“.

He added, “I then transferred to Hallym Arts High School while attending an acting academy“.

Choi Hyun Wook was a standout member of the baseball teams at Suwon Buk Middle School and Gangneung High School.

Choi Hyun Wook participated in the 46th Presidential National Middle School Baseball Tournament in 2017 while attending Suwon Buk Middle School.

He earned a reputation for himself by becoming the “Stolen Base King“. Choi Hyun Wook‘s Gangneung High School baseball team features Lotte Giants pitcher Kim Jin Wook and others.

Meanwhile, Choi Hyun Wook has been cast in the original wave drama “Weak Hero“. Expectations are rising for Choi Hyun Wook‘s new look in “Weak Hero“, after he was praised for his sneaky and three-dimensional performance in “Twenty Five Twenty One“.
