Lee Hyun-woo gets Footloose

Child-actor-turned-budding-adolescent-actor Lee Hyun-woo is expanding his acting scope and taking to the stage for a musical production of Footloose, where he’ll play the leading role of Ren, famously played by Kevin Bacon in the original movie. The character’s a city boy who moves to a small town that has banned dancing and rock ‘n roll. Naturally, he shakes things up a little.

Lee Hyun-woo has been building up his resume playing child roles in a number of large-scale productions over the past several years, such as Legend, Great King Sejong, Return of Iljimae, and Queen Seon-deok. But you may remember him best as the cute and loyal Chan-doo in God of Study, where he showed some of his dance skills — which’ll no doubt serve him well in Footloose — as well as a warm, empathetic appeal.

Although just 17, Lee has been making more of an impression with every role, and I have found him adorable AND charismatic in his roles. A deadly combination for the noonas. He’s one to watch in the future, for sure.

Lee will also be seen in the baseball movie G-Love, which I mentioned in the past when it cast Kim Hye-sung alongside Jung Jae-yong.

Footloose will run from December 10 through February 6.

Glad to see this kid making it. Sometimes as the child actors grow, they grow out of their sweet looks. He's growing up nicely!

Like Yoo Ah In? Okay, that's it. Hide this kid. The noonas are coming.

Expecto patronum! (Haha, to ward off all the noonas that will take his innocence away!)

Lee Hyun Woo - three months older than Yoo Seung Ho.

I really like Lee Hyun-woo. I saw him in this kid show a while back that was about Hwarang warriors and reminded me of korean power rangers. He was like an elementary school kid, but now that I look back, a couple of the child actors in that are still acting (ie. Park Gun-tae, Kwak Jung-wook).
I didn't know Lee Hyun-woo was in G-love. One more reason to watch it!

Ohh..............GOSH!!! O_o

I suddenly remember that this actor Lee Hyun Woo's familiar face when I saw him as a little boy (he acts for childhood) in that drama "Lobbyist", ofc!

Wow.......Aigoo, I can't believe that this actor is already grown up so fast, lolz.

(Yea Yea, I agree with #14 Camelotprincess, heh!) =) =)

OK, I am definitely headed for that circle, too.

The moment I realized it was when I looked up Lee Hyun-woo's age, realized he would be in my daughter's classes, and didn'tblink in horror...

Seriously, ladies, if it weren't for you all, I would have been confessing all of these thoughts to a therapist...

Let it all out, girlfriend! haha. Just another perk of being a dramabeans reader--free therapy sessions.*
