When Siwon was 16 he was scouted by a talent agent, he was then asked to and recommend to audition for the Starlight Casting System to become an entertainer. But being raised in a strict Protestant family his parents disapproved of him pursuing a career in the entertainment buisness, therefore he had to secretly audition. After successfully passing auditions, and after much consideration, his parents allowed him to sign under the talent agency called: SM Entertainment. It was said by Siwon himself that although his father allowed him to sign the contract, he would not give help to his son in any way. Later on he moved into dormitories with fellow trainees and began starting training in areas such as singing, acting, and dancing. He then made his first appearance in a music video in the year of 2003. A year after, he made a brief appearance in the short drama, “Precious Family” and in 2005 Siwon made a slight appearance in KBS’s Drama “Eighteen, Twenty-Nine” as a character named ‘Kang Bong-man’. But not long after Siwon’s first television appearance, SM Entertainment released an announcement that he would officially debut as one of the twelve members in a boy band. This band later became officially known as “Super Junior 05″, the first generation of the rotational music group Super Junior. A few months before the debut of Super Junior 05, Siwon made his first official media appearance as a runway model in a fashion show by Bum Suk. Siwon continued his education after his debut with Super Junior in 2005, he then graduated from Gu Jeong High School in February 2006 and later went on to attend Inha University.
