PostSubject: Cha Seung-won   Sun Sep 04, 2011 11:00 am



Cha Seung-won (Born June 7, 1970 in Seoul) is a top South Korean actor and fashion model.

Career

Cha Seung-won dropped out of Sungkyunkwan University[1] and began a successful career as a fashion model in 1988. He was cast in the TV sitcom New York Story, which would eventually pave the way for his debut in film.

Although his debut film Holiday in Seoul (1997) and many of his subsequent roles did not establish him as a major star, he attracted attention in 2000 for his performance as an arsonist in the firefighting film Libera Me. The following summer, the runaway success of Kim Sang-jin's comedy Kick the Moon (over 4.3 million tickets sold) secured his place in the industry as a leading actor with strong star appeal. Since then, Cha has become one of the few surefire box office draws in the country. In a 2005 survey of influential movie producers, he was ranked among the top ten most bankable stars.

In early 2003, Cha took on a slightly more serious role as a corrupt schoolteacher who is transferred to a country school in the film My Teacher, Mr. Kim. The film grossed over 2.4 million admissions and drew Cha additional praise for his acting abilities (he would later team up again with the director for 2007 comedy Small Town Rivals). His next role, in Ghost House, reunited him with director Kim Sang-jin in a successful comedy about a man who buys a dream home, only to discover it is haunted by a young female ghost.

In 2005 Cha put aside the comic roles he had become known for and appeared in the grisly period thriller Blood Rain. The film's unexpectedly robust commercial success confirmed Cha's popularity among Korean audiences. Cha went on to appear in two films by renowned comedy director Jang Jin -- Murder, Take One and My Son.

He starred in his first melodrama Over the Border, about a North Korean defecto. Stylish crime thrillers Eye for an Eye and Secret followed.

2010 was a busy year for Cha, acting in the Lee Jun-ik-helmed period actioner Blades of Blood and Korean War film 71: Into the Fire

Cha returned to television in 2009, in the political fairytale City Hall, followed by spy series Athena: Goddess of War in 2010. In 2011 his character in the hit romantic comedy The Greatest Love, arrogant top star "Dokko Jin" became a mini pop culture phenomenon, giving rise to numerous commercial deals and parodies.

Personal life

Cha married early when he was an eighteen-year-old college freshman in 1989. He and his wife have 2 children, son Cha No-ah (born 1989) and daughter Cha Ye-ni (born 2003).
