While his career in entertainment actually began in 2003 in the drama Nonstop 4 where he had a minor role, it wasn't until 2005 where he was cast as a lead in the critically acclaimed film The King and the Clown (2005)  where he played Gong-gil, a clown. He gained further recognition in My Girl (2005), a romantic comedy, which had him starring alongside Lee Da-hae, Lee Dong-wook, and Park Si-yeon, rising stars in their own right then. After that, the amount and diversity of projects offered to him poured in, and critics and audiences alike marveled and recognized his versatility, hard work, and passion for his craft. It was in two particular genres that the multi-awarded actor found his star shining brightest: historical dramas (sageuks) and suspenseful dramas.
