Lim Ju Hwan began his career in the entertainment industry by playing minor roles in the 2004 drama series Magic and the 2005 drama series A Love to Kill.
A year later, he had another opportunity to showcase his acting skills in the movie A Millionaire’s First Love and the drama series Don’t Worry.
Then, he showed up in another movie titled Arang (2006) wherein he played a slightly bigger role than what he usually had.
Gaining such good momentum, he continued with his acting spells in the drama series The Snow Queen (2006) and Drama City: Pure Soon Yi (2007).
All his hard work paid off with the drama series Tamra, the Island in 2009, where he hit a breakthrough in his career for the first time since his debut.
For his outstanding performance, he got The New Actor of the Year award at the Korean Culture and Entertainment Awards ceremony.
