The baby from Hello Baby is now all grown up!
Back in 2010, SHINee participated in Season 2 of the KBS reality program Hello Baby, a show where celebrities experienced parenthood by raising young children. Their own “child” was none other than Yoogeun, a 2007-liner who was only 3 years old at the time of filming.
SHINee and Yoogeun bonded over playdates, excursions, visits to music shows, and more over 13 episodes.
Now, twelve years later, Yoogeun is a 15-year old actor! He is currently playing the child version of male lead Nam Geum Pil from the TVING K-Drama I Have Not Done My Best. It follows the story of Geum Pil as he quits his job and goes on a journey to be a comic book writer.
Gone were Yoogeun’s baby cheeks and small stature. He’s now a high school student who is continuing to grow right before our eyes! He recently became a hot topic online for this surprising transformation throughout the years.
Yoogeun evolved from an adorable toddler in 2010 to an actor who can play a wide range of roles in 2022.
I Have Not Done My Best isn’t the first show Yoogeun has appeared in. He’s played supporting roles and guest roles in K-Dramas such as To The Beautiful You (2012), Legend of the Blue Sea (2016), Unknown Woman (2017), Suits (2018), and more.
