Rowoon, or originally born with the name of Kim Seok Woo, decided to become one of the top Korean entertainers when he joined FNC Entertainment as a trainee in 2010.
During his pre-debut days, he was often being publicized as one of the FNC trainees.

Not satisfied by only being a singer and dancer, this charming actor then ventured his wings into the acting industry.
He debuted as an actor by appearing in Click Your Heart (2016) as the main character.
That opportunity then led him to a bigger opportunity as an actor. In 2017, he once appeared in some episodes for School 2017.
Meanwhile, in 2018, he appeared again in About Time and Where Stars Land.
One year later, Rowoon’s name became wildly popular because he starred in Extraordinary You (2019) alongside Kim Hye Yeon.
