★ Casting: Starlight Casting System 2002
On a whim, Heechul searched the internet for entertainment companies and it so happened that SM was having open auditions so he went with his friends to Seoul to sightsee/audition. Being unfamiliar with the area, he got lost and missed the open audition hours. They told him that it was too late, but according to him, took one look at his face and changed their minds :) He was allowed to audition and was cast through SM Casting System in October 2002. He debuted as an actor on March 6, 2005 through the youth drama KBS’s “Banolim 2″ as Baek Jinwoo.
