All K-Drama fans have stars that they love watching. Yet, amidst all the huge names, there are actors who might not always be the leading stars but appear in some of their favorite shows in memorable scenes.
One young actor who fits that role is Moon Woo Jin. Debuting at a young age, Woo Jin quickly became one of the A-List children’s actors, starring as the younger version of Park Seo Joon in What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim…

Along with cameos in hit shows like King: The Eternal Monarch, My ID Is Gangnam Beauty, and so many more.
While the young actor has constantly been acting since a young age, his recent role has shocked fans after showing how much he’s grown after starring in the new K-Drama Castaway Diva, starring Park Eun Bin.
The show follows Seo Mok Ha, who wants to be a “diva,” but on her way to Seoul for an audition, she gets stranded on an uninhabited island due to an unfortunate accident and returns to the world after 15 years.
In the show, Moon Woo Jin plays Jeong Gi Ho, who is Mok Ha’s classmate.
Even though there has only been a few episodes, the young actor has already shown his unreal talent and maturity. Many netizens have joked that he still has the role of the young version of the traumatized male lead, but has grown with the role.
When the TikTok was posted showing the transformation on TikTok, netizens couldn’t get over the young star’s growth.
Even on X, netizens couldn’t get over the young actor’s transformation, with many sharing that it showed how long they had been watching K-Dramas that they had watched him grow up.
