His first leading role was in the 2015 drama “Fool’s Love (Ho Goo’s Love).”

In 2014, Choi starred in his first leading role in the coming-of-age indie film “Set Me Free,” which earned him an Actor of the Year award at the Busan International Film Festival.

Choi gained international recognition with the blockbuster zombie thriller film ”Train to Busan” and action-adventure film ”Okja.”

In 2018, Choi furthered his career by playing a mysterious assassin called the Nobleman in the movie ”The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion.”

In 2019 Choi Woo Shik got internationally praised for his main role in the movie ”Parasite.” South Korea has selected Bong Joon Ho’s Palme d’Or winner “Parasite” as its entry for the International Feature Film award at the 92nd Academy Awards (Oscars).
