Relationships can be tricky, and SF9 singer Rowoon knows it firsthand. He might be a charmer and one of the main stars in "Tomorrow," but he doesn't know how to handle love.
Korean artists' popularity is undeniable, especially after the unmatching success of K-pop bands like BTS and BLACKPINK and K-dramas like "Squid Game" and "All of Us Are Dead."
Rowoon is one of the most promising South Korean artists. He shot to stardom as a member of K-pop boyband SF9 in 2015 and has since dipped his toes into acting.

With over a dozen acting credits under his belt, Rowoon's career is steadily rising. He starred in 2021's "She Would Never Know" as Chae Hyun-Seung, an intern at a cosmetics company who fell in love with Won Jin-Ah's character Yoo Song-Ah.
Chae Hyun-Seung has a peculiar personality. He is a productive worker with seemingly no flaws. However, things get complicated when he has to express his feelings.
The K-pop star tried to compare himself to his on-screen persona but admitted he didn't know how he would handle love. Rowoon revealed he didn't even know what kind of person he was and added:
"I just accept Hyun-Seung's love as it is. The title is unique and has a sexy air. Chae Hyun-Seung is somewhat of a fantasy character, so when I first heard the title I thought it was sexy."
After sharing his thoughts on love, people couldn't stop wondering if Rowoon was single. He might be on the market now, but he was in a relationship before achieving fame. The identity of Rowoon's girlfriend is unclear, but he confessed she was his first love.
"Tomorrow" is a more physically challenging project than most of Rowoon's previous jobs.
He used to do anything for her, including traveling miles on a bus to give her tea and porridge when she was sick. With such a thriving career, it is fair to say that the SF9 singer has no time for a romantic relationship.
," Rowoon's fourth time playing a lead role, premiered on Netflix in April 2022. He portrays Choi Joon-Woong, a young man looking for a job who accidentally meets a group of grim reapers and works with them.
Although Rowoon is one of the main stars in the show, he is not worried about its success. He pointed out that he could not control how many people watch it, so he feels no pressure about ratings.
Instead, he focuses on the story's message and essence (the main characters try to prevent suicides). In that respect, Rowoon is confident that the show will give him "comfort."
"Tomorrow" is a more physically challenging project than most of Rowoon's previous jobs. In the eighth episode, his character gets tied up after fighting a stronger enemy.
Luckily, grim reapers Lim Ryung-Gu (Yoon Ji-On) and Goo Ryeon (Kim Hee-Sun) locate him using an app and save the day. Rowoon's fans cannot wait to see him working on more projects. Way to go!
