When he was 6 years old, his family moved to South Gyeongsang Province because his father, a professor of civil engineering was allocated at a national university there. In his junior year in high school, Yoo decided to take up acting and followed his brother, who was studying another year to enter university, to Seoul and they lived together near the district of Samseong-dong.
While taking acting classes, Yoo met a friend who would later work on the costume staff of film director Park Chan-wook. Without having to pass out his resume, he made his acting debut as Yoo Ji-tae’s younger counterpart in the acclaimed 2003 film Oldboy.
He became a photographer and held his solo exhibition in 2017. It is called “Re: Creation”, was held between 12 December 2017 and 16 January 2018 at Bando Gallery from 10 am to 7pm. We are waiting for his 3rd photography exhibition in the near future.
