Early Life And Career
When Choi was sixteen, he was waiting for friends in front of his high school when he was noticed by a talent representative from SM Entertainment. He should try out for the Starlight Casting System of the firm, the agent said. His parents were not informed about his auditions until after he cleared them. He didn't ask for their permission to go. His parents didn't provide him any assistance because they wanted him to accept responsibility for his choices, even though they approved of him signing a deal with SM Entertainment.

In addition to being a part of Super Junior, Choi has pursued individual endeavours, primarily acting. In addition to supporting parts in Athena: Goddess of War (2010), The King of Dramas (2012), She Was Pretty (2015), and Bloodhounds (2023), he starred in main roles in the Korean dramas Oh! My Lady (2010), Poseidon (2011), Revolutionary Love (2017), My Fellow Citizens! (2019), and Love Is for Suckers (2022). In addition, Choi has acted in a number of Chinese-language films, including Dragon Blade, To the Fore, and Helios.

Later, he moved into dorms with other trainees and received instruction in languages, acting, dancing, and singing. In 2003, when he was receiving solo vocal training, he appeared in a music video for Dana by The Grace. One year later, Choi had a cameo in the KBS romantic comedy drama Eighteen, Twenty-Nine in 2005 as youthful Kang Bong-man. In the romance melodrama Spring Waltz the following year, he portrayed the supporting character of Park Sang-woo.
