Yoo Taewoong 유태웅 is the leader and main rapper of Snuper from Widmay Entertainment.
Taewoong was born on Tuesday, May 24, 1994. His nationality and ethnicity are Japanese-Korean and he goes by the name Yukimoto Yasuo ゆきとも やすお in Japan, where he was born. He's bilingual, fluent in both Korean and Japanese.
Like fellow member Woosung, he was born in the Chinese Year of the Dog. He’s a Gemini. He’s 180 cm or 5'11" tall.
Tawoong shares the blood type A with three other members in the group: Suhyun, Woosung, and Sangho.
In his free time, Taewoong keeps his focus on the entertainment industry by watching dramas and movies and writing raps.
Taewoong was an idol trainee for seven years before he finally debuted at the age of 21. During that time he gained a lot of experience in several areas to emerge as a multi-talented idol, singing and rapping for Snuper in addition to his role as leader, not to mention his acting career. Usually the role of leader goes to the oldest member of an idol group, but when a younger member has the title of leader it's for good reason.
As a child actor, Taewoong starred in several dramas prior to debut starting at the age of ten in KBS2's 2004 drama "Forgiveness" as Sejin. By the time of his debut with Snuper, he had already starred in a dozen dramas and two movies. His most recent drama was tvN's 2013 drama "Fantastic Tower" as Sun Ho, where he acted alongside BtoB’s Minhyuk.
