18 Moments of Ong Seong Wu

With his playful personality and overflowing charisma, Ong Seong Wu snatched our hearts since Day One of his idol journey at Produce 101 Season 2. As the lone Fantagio trainee, he is a total mood-maker, a skillful vocalist and dancer, and a visual prince with his blinding smile and little constellation of moles.

Finishing at the fifth spot, he got us falling for him, even more, when he debuted as a member of project group Wanna One. The group was short-lived (sobs), and in the end, the members had to go their separate ways (sobs even more).

But our moments with Seong Wu continued when he released his first “Heart Sign” CF for Pepsi and debuted as actor!Ong in the drama At Eighteen. All his hard work as the awkward high school student Choi Jun Woo paid off as he received the Hallyu Star and the Male Rookie Award at the 2019  Korean Drama Awards, the 2019 StarHub Most Promising Actor Award, and the Rookie of the Year Award at the 2019 Asia Artist Awards.

The new decade comes with the arrival of soloist!Ong, too! Seong Wu released his debut track “We Belong,” for which he participated in composing and writing the lyrics. And tomorrow, he’ll be releasing his first mini album, Layers, with “Gravity” as the title track!

And if those are not yet enough to prove how talented he is, Ong is also making his big-screen debut with the musical film Life is Beautiful where he will play Jeong Wu along with veteran actors Yum Jung Ah (SKY Castle) and Ryu Seung Ryong (Miracle in Cell No. 7).

Indeed, 2020 is a blessing for Welos. To keep your excitement at a crescendo as you wait for Layers, take a look at 18 moments that had us crushing hard for Ong Seong Wu.

1 | Not Hong, Gong, or Eung!

Seong Wu’s family name Ong is rare in Korea, so he definitely takes pride in it! It’s the first rule to becoming a Welo: Seong Wu’s surname is Ong—not Hong or Gong or Eung!

10 | Welo’s eye cleaner

The term ‘gaean’ means to open the eyes in Korean. Ong Seongwu and Hwang Minhyun were labeled as such because of their eye-cleansing looks. Gaeanz couple’s visual is brighter than my future. 🙁

Ong adds his personal touch to Kang Daniel’s iconic “Open Up” thigh sweep dance!
