ASTRO’s Cha Eunwoo Once Had To Announce He Was A Celebrity In Public, And His Feelings About It Show His True Personality

As expected of Cha Eunwoo!

ASTRO‘s Cha Eunwoo is one of the most famous Korean celebrities at present.

The singer-actor is known for starring in K-Dramas such as Gangnam Beauty (2018), Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung (2019), and True Beauty (2020-2021).

He also frequently trends online due to his stunning visuals.

Despite being recognized far and wide, Cha Eunwoo does not dwell on his popularity. Rather, he tries to act as low key as possible.

This was exemplified in the story he shared in Happy Together regarding the time he brought up his celebrity status unwillingly.

Here, Cha Eunwoo had gotten off work and chosen to watch a late night movie to relax. Right before he entered the cinema, he was stopped by an employee who wanted to make sure that he was not a minor staying past curfew.

Unfortunately, he did not have any means of identification on him at the time.

I looked for my ID but I left it at home.

He did something very unique to show that he was no longer a minor—he searched himself up online! Since he could not prove his age the normal way, he left it up to the web to do it for him.

To prove that I’m an adult, I looked up ‘Cha Eunwoo’ on my phone and said, ‘This is who I am.’

Instead of smoothly pulling out the celebrity card as expected of a top star, he found it difficult to do. In fact, he confessed that “it was embarrassing.”

The employee had no doubts that he was indeed the Cha Eunwoo found on numerous articles online. The latter, on his part, did not make a scene and continued on his way.

He looked at it and said, ‘Okay. Please go in.’

As proof of his humble character, Cha Eunwoo ended the segment by reiterating his feelings about the whole situation.

It was very embarrassing.
