“I think I look really handsome in this movie.” – Choi Woo Shik

In a recent interview with News1, Choi Woo Shik spoke up about his honest thoughts about the final result of his new Netflix movie, Time to Hunt.


Time to Hunt is a story about four young men who plan a dangerous mission in hopes of starting a new life.

In the film, Choi Woo Shik plays Ki Hoon, who is a loyal friend who always worries about his friends first, and despite his worries that their plan is dangerous, he plays an active role while dreaming of a better future.

When asked about his satisfaction regarding the final product of the film, Choi Woo Shik talked about his appearance in the film.

I think I look really handsome in this movie.

He then went on to explain that his new look for the film was inspired by none other than Leonardo DiCaprio.

When we first got ready, there was some worry about my hairstyle. The reference that the director gave me was a photo of Leonardo DiCaprio back in his younger days. He brought that photo, and seeing it next to my photo made the contrast so extreme. I didn’t think I could turn out like that. But luckily, it ended up suiting Ki Hoon. So I’m very satisfied.

Choi Woo Shik first took off in the film industry with the 2014 film, Set Me Free, followed by his role in Train to Busan and Bong Joon Ho‘s Parasite.

With the worldwide success of Parasite and the spectacular performance he showed in the film, there is much anticipation for what’s to come for this successful actor.

Time to Hunt is currently streaming on Netflix.
