SHINee’s Baby Yoogeun From “Hello Baby” Is All Grown Up—Here’s What He Looks Like Now

He’s now 15!

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.
