The international journey of South Korea born and NYC actor Jinho Woo

Jinho Woo started his career when he was 13 years old, and he knew at that time that performing was what he wanted to do. Performing has been where Jinho put all his work, efforts and passion into ever since.

In a few years, the young Jinho Woo got to participate in 10 full productions up until his graduation in 2013, including playing one of the most challenging role for any actor :‘Sorin’, in the production of ‘The Seagull’ by Anton Chekhov.

That performing accomplishment was the confirmation that he had what it takes to become the international and highly respected actor he now is...

In 2013, his career took off when he got cast in the musical "Fanta-stick", an open run show in Seoul in which the unconventional fusion of Korean traditional music operates with western music. Jinho Woo performed for a year in the acclaimed show produced by Haera Inc. and directed by Shin Jong-Hyun.

This experience led him to perform and tour from 2014 to 2016 in the musical "Tracyparty", a production that toured annually for 8 years.

Jinho Woo has been playing major roles in international theatre and film productions.Based in New York City since several years, Jinho Woo never stopped performing, and got to work with some of the most influential and talented people in his field, such as award-winning director Moisés Kaufmanthe, founder and artistic director of Tectonic Theater Project.
