These 4 Ex-Child Actors Are Now In A K-Pop Group Together

When you’re clearly destined for greatness…

A new idol group is on its way to your radar and it’s 10 members strong. TRCNG from TS Entertainment formed last October and has already released a mini album, New Generation, and a single, “WHO AM I”.

An interesting fact about TRCNG is that 4 of its members have been public figures for some time now — they were all child actors! Kim Ji Hoon, Kim Ji Sung, Kim Hyun Woo, and Kim Kang Min were all in some major projects and, though their fully-matured looks may be unfamiliar, they’re familiar to many Koreans.

Check out these 4 idols’ child-actor credentials and how much they have changed since:

1. Jihun

TRCNG’s lead vocal, Jihun, starred in 6 movies and 9 television series, which makes him something of a veteran child actor. His most well-known work is as Kim Tae Sung in The Queen’s Classroom.

Have to say, Jihun has grown up to be a damn good looking man.

2. Jisung

Jisung was the little G-Dragon in the 2009 SBS Gayo Daejun. In a press interview, Jisung talked about how the experience helped him in preparing for TRCNG:

“The experiences I’ve had a child actor helped me look at cameras naturally and perform facial expressions.”

— Jisung

The same adorableness still remains intact today, obviously:

3. Hyunwoo

Kim Hyun Woo was the child actor counterpart of Lee Seung Ki in the popular comedy series, My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox. 

“I played the child to Lee Seung Ki sunbae’s Cha Dae Woong in My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox. I actually worked with Kang Min then. It’s a nice surprise that we’re now working together as an idol group.”

— Hyunwoo

His grown-up good looks prove that the casting people back in the day for My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox sure knew what they were doing.

Kangmin

Kim Kang Min has been in multiple television commercials, including PSAs for the Seoul Metropolitan Government and ads for McDonald’s.

“I filmed a McDonald’s commercial when I was in kindergarten and, I’m not sure if you will remember, but I was also in the movie Forever the Moment.”

— Kangmin

Maybe it’s the water, but this guy looks just as cute now as he did back then.
