Despite his young age of 16, Lee Eugene also surprised internet users with his height of 184 com, when he used to be smaller during his acting debut (170 cm).

Fans pointed out how he also became manly that even Oh Nara said, "How cool your voice has become," revealing that Lee Eugene's voice is low-pitched which is as deep as the sound from a cave.

As a response to Oh Nara's upload, internet users commented, "Our Soo Han (Lee Eugene) growing so fast," "You raised him well, " "Cute update from the mother and son," and more.

Born in 2004, Lee Eugene first rose into stardom for his acting in the hit drama "SKY Castle."

In 2009, Eugene then joined MNET's reality and survival show, "Produce X 101," as an independent idol trainee. Despite being a rising child actor at that time, Eugene explained that he dreamt of becoming an idol actor after being inspired by EXO D.O.

He said, "I saw EXO D.O. (Do Kyung Soo) in his film 'Swing Kids' and I want to become like him," emphasizing how he shines as both an actor and idol.

During the music survival program, Eugene established his stable fandom, but he, unfortunately, didn't make it into the final cut — leaving the show at Episode 8 as no. 55.

In the same year, Eugene decided to focus solely on acting and found his new nest at Namoo actors. He is promoting under his new name, Yoo Jinwoo (Yu Gene Woo), and made an appearance on "Miss Hammurabi," "Sweet Home," and MBC's "Radio Star."
