Ahn Hyo Seop began thinking of becoming an actor since early age. He used to spend his time watching movies with his father. This opened up his interest to start a career in the film industry.
Back then, this young boy was living in Canada so he didn’t get many opportunities to explore his passion.
At the same time, his parents were also not very supportive of his dream becoming an actor.
Even after encountering many obstacles, Ahn Hyo Seop still determined to pursue his dream. He dared to move to Korea from Canada to get more opportunities.
During this time, this Aries Man was scouted by JYP Entertainment. He trained as a singer for about three years and was offered to debut in GOT7.
However, Ahn Hyo Seop realized that he doesn’t want to be an idol. Not long after, he ended up parting ways with the agency.
After moving on from JYP Entertainment, this aspiring actor signed with Starhaus Entertainment. In October 2015, he joined 3 other Starhaus actors to create a project group One O One.
They made their debut with the single Love You. The group went on to release two more digital singles Stunning (2015) and You Are My Light (2016), but hasn’t had any more activities since then.
He finally made his debut as an actor in the 2015 drama Splash Splash Love. He also had several supporting roles throughout 2016.
But his name began to really rise to fame in 2017. At that time, the man from Seoul got the leading role for My Father is Strange and Queen of the Ring.
