Cha Seoung-won . 車勝元 PROFILE Name: Cha Seoung-won [차승원 | 車勝元] Born: June 7, 1970 | Anyang, Gyeonggi, South Korea Body: 188cm | 80kg | Type AB Religion: Catholic (baptismal name: John) Education: Seoul Jamjeon Elementary School > Sincheon Middle School > Dan-Kook High School > Sungkyunkwan University (Department of Film, Television and Multimedia / Dropped out) Debut: 1988 Model Line 18th Member | 1997 movie Holiday In Seoul Family: Wife, son, daughter Hobbies: Weight training, Mountain biking Agency: YG Entertainment [ HP | Instagram | Facebook | Twitter | Youtube | VLive ] Links: [ Homepage | Instagram | Daum Cafe || JP-FanCafe-Instagram | Weibo ] [ kofic ] CHA Seoung-won: Born in 1970, Cha Seungwon started out as a fashion model in 1988, just after high school, but it was when he moved to acting in the late 1990s that he rose to stardom. After he was cast in a small role in the melodrama <Holiday Inn Seoul> (1997), Cha made his television debut with the 1997 sitcom <New York Story>. Although he played a dandy businessman in the hit sports drama <If the sun rises in the west> (1998), Cha failed to draw attention. It was eventually his participation to various talk shows in 1998 that got him noticed, and soon thereafter he started to receive more important roles starting with <Ghost In Love> (1999). After a cameo appearance in the influential comedy <Attack The Gas Station!> (1999), Cha was part of the main cast for <Fin De Siecle> (1999) and was offered the lead role in <Black Honeymoon> (2000). Just when he made a strong impression with his performance as a serial arsonist in <Libera Me> (2000), Cha took his fans by surprise when he ventured into comedy with Kim Sangjin’s <Kick the Moon> (2001), which released to commercial success. Cha then appeared in a number of comedy films such as Jang Jin’s <Jail Breakers> (2002) and Kim Sangjin’s <Ghost House> (2004). Putting aside the comic roles he had come to be known for, he then appeared in the grisly period-set thriller <Blood Rain> (2004) and the drama film <Over the Border> (2006), the latter of which - about a North Korean refugee trying to start a new life in the South after his wife stayed in the North - proved that he has more range than many would have given him credit for. After the thriller <Eye for an Eye> and the period action film <Blades of Blood>, Cha ushered in the next decade with the Korean War film <71: Into the Fire> (2010), playing as a vicious North Korean general. Following a successful take as a haughty star in the hit romcom series <The Greatest Love> (2011) that brought him many endorsement deals, Cha teamed up with Jang Jin once more in 2014, starring as a transgender detective in the colorful noir thriller <Man on High Heels> (2013). After a 3-year long gap, he returned as a real-life cartographer in the period drama <The Map Against the World> (2016). He then joined the main cast of the thriller <Believer> (2017). He then headlined <CHEER UP, MR. LEE> (2019), his first comedy film in more than a decade. With the blockbuster action film <Sinkhole> (2021), of which he is the leading actor, Cha is confirming his status as a star of Korean cinema. [ 2005-2014 starnews ] ~~~ Cha Seoungwon | theactorispresent | 차승원 
Cha Seoungwon has a secret switch that changes genres, moods, and even genders. And it’s very stylish and tremendously enchanting! In the early 2000s, Cha Seoungwon was a key actor who led Korean comedy films, and he deserved to be praised for being an all-rounder. In the late 1980s, Cha made his debut as a fashion model and was active as a representative model. In the late 1990s, he expanded his scope as an actor by appearing in films such as If the Sun Rises in the West (1998) and Fin De Siecle (1999) and TV series. Cha showed his acting ability to break prejudice against a fashion model with a strong personality. He drew attention as a serial arsonist in Libera Me (2000) and played a physical education teacher in a love triangle in the comedy Kick the Moon (2001). Starting from that film, the successful series of so-called ‘Cha Seoungwon’s Comedy’ was released in a row. He played a bluffing gangster in Break Out (2002), a prisoner who escaped from prison and had to return to prison as a special envoy in Jail Breakers, a problematic teacher assigned to a school in the countryside in My Teacher, Mr. Kim (2003), and a haunted landlord in Ghost House (2004). In the early 2000s, it is no exaggeration to say that Korean cinema was ‘Cha Seoungwon’s world.’ Although the film plots and characters were all different, Cha’s unique talks and jokes livened up the cinematic fun. He sensibly pulled off a natural laugh caused by ironic situations rather than unnatural acting that betrayed Macho’s image with charisma or excessive acting like a slapstick comedy. It was the crime costume drama Blood Rain (2005) that changed Cha’s image of a comedy-specialized actor at once. He appeared as a cold-hearted investigator struggling to solve a horrific murder case. Since then, he has challenged various genres and characters, including a North Korean defector in Over the Border (2006), a father and lifer in My Son (2007), an ambitious man who wants to be a king in Blades of Blood (2010), and a homicide detective who wants to be a woman in Man on High Heels (2014), never fearing the path of unconventional acting as if he were experimenting with his limitations. Like the determination shown in the noir film Eyes for An Eye (2008), where he faced a detective and commits a crime, Cha Seoungwon also showed strong masculine charms that captured the audience’s eyes at once. Through the characters such as Brian in Believer (2018), who is working for a dark organization, and Director Ma in Night in Paradise (2021), Cha Seoungwon fully enjoyed his masculinity. Of course, he is an actor who can calmly play any role, from Cheolsoo, an innocent father who suffers from the aftermath of the disaster in CHEER UP, MR. LEE (2019), to the bloodless gangster. Three Meals a Day, which began in 2015, that made Actor Cha stand out as much as his acting talent proven in many films. He showed off his excellent cooking skills and stole the love of viewers with his familiar and warm-hearted appearance, earning the nickname ‘Chazumma (Mrs. Cha).’ He appeared in the disaster blockbuster Sinkhole this year. Cha Seoungwon’s affection and thirst for films know no limits. In other words, his filmography, which does not know how to settle for the present, is still ongoing. We still have a hidden card to see Cha Seoungwon’s performance in his middle-age. [written by Jeon Jonghyuk.
