Yoo Seung Ho debuted in 1999 with a cellphone commercial when he was nine years old. Three years later, he was cast in the movie The Way Home in 2002 as Sang Woo, a boy from the city who bonds with his grandma from the countryside. The Way Home gained a lot of popularity, and Yoo Seung Ho rose to fame as an actor.

In March last year, it was reported that Lee Seung Ho signed with YG Entertainment.

Although Yoo Seung Ho is a beloved actor in Korea who had fans since he was a child actor, he has never appeared on a variety show. Therefore, when it was announced that he would be a guest on the long-running SBS variety show Running Man, netizens were ecstatic.
