In his acceptance speech he admitted being nervous. “I feel apprehensive and shy accepting this award because I honestly believe I don’t deserve to be called as an “actor” yet. I know I am still lacking but I will take this as my motivation to work harder.”

He further added, “I know there are a lot of people who don’t know who I am, what I think and feel about acting. But I will try my best to show my passion and dedication.”

He thanked the fans and the people he worked with. He said he is looking forward to becoming a more mature actor Ong Seong Wu in the future. Ong played the role of Choi Joon Woo in At Eighteen. He has impressed the production team and viewers with his delicate acting and powerful portrayal of the character.

Ong Seong Wu debuted as an idol after placing fifth in the second season of Produce 101 and became a part of the project group WANNA ONE. When the group disbanded upon the end of their contracts, Ong embarked on his acting journey. He made his acting debut with a lead role in the TV drama.

He will soon make his way to the big screen. It was recently announced that he will take part in the musical film Life is Beautiful. The movie is set to be released next year.
