Choi Si Won, born on April 7, 1986, also credited as Si Won, is an actor, dancer, singer, and a member of Korean boy band Super Junior. Si Won's breakthrough performance was in the 2006 Hong Kong historical action drama film, "A Battle of Wits" where he plays the young prince, Liang Shi. He is also one of the first Korean artists to be on Chinese postage stamps.
Si Won was raised in a strict, Protestant family from Seoul, South Korea who owns one of Korea's biggest supermarket chains. After Si Won's talents were scouted in the Starlight Casting System in 2003, his parents initially disapproved him to pursue in an entertainment career. After consideration, his parents allowed Si Won to sign under the talent agency SM Entertainment. Si Won said that although his father agreed Choi to sign the contract, he would not give any help to his son. Si Won later moved into dormitories with fellow trainees and he was trained in areas of acting, dancing, and singing. He made his first appearance in a music video of The Grace's Dana when she was still a solo singer in 2003. A year after, Si Won made a brief appearance in the short drama, "Precious Family".
