However, after several appearances when the show ended, Byung Seong Tae seems to have shifted his focus to acting. Since making his acting debut, he has starred in several popular web dramas, from I Can See Your MBTI to Let’s See What They’re Doing. He also made a cameo in the well-known K-Drama Nevertheless.

Making himself known in Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha, it is no surprise that fans have fallen for his character. With experience in the idol business, he made the character more authentic.

Outside of the idol life, Seong Tae has been able to share parts of his life with fans and even has an Instagram where he posts updates about his career!
