YG Trainee Jung Chan Woo in ‘Mix & Match’ Previously Acted as Young Lee Min Ho
YG Entertainment’s new trainee Jung Chan Woo’s profile has been unveiled.
During the first episode of Mnet’s new survival program Mix & Match aired on September 11, Yang Hyun Suk gathered Win team B members and announced that three new trainees will be joining before the survival program begins.
As the second trainee to be introduced, Jung Chan Woo said, “I started acting when I was in second grade in elementary school.”
Jung Chan Woo acted as young Lee Min Ho in KBS 2TV’s Boys Over Flowers and SBS’s The Heirs and he also acted as young Shin Hyeon Jun in SBS’s Cain and Able.
Jung Chan Woo said, “The first concert that I ever went to was Big Bang’s concert. That’s when I thought, ‘what if I danced and sang up there too.’ I always thought I want to be a singer. I’m still lacking in skills but I want to improve myself and work hard in order to win the competition.”
Yang Hyun Suk said, “These two trainees joined after WIN ended so it has only been two months since they started practicing. I’ve been watching them practicing every week and they’ve been improving quickly. I don’t think individual ability is the most important element for team B right now. The key point is to see how well these two will adapt to iKON and collaborate with others. I think it’s another great opportunity to test B.I’s leadership skills. I would like to test B.I, Bobby and Kim Jin Hwan’s abilities.”
