After watching a magic show on TV in his high school senior year, he set foot in an unknown and arduous path to becoming a professional magician. Magicians generally do not reveal their secrets; we can only imagine what Kim Won Chul had to go through in order to learn them all. Five years into his career, he develops a new style of entertainment combining magic and stand-up comedy. He earns prizes in magic competitions and starts appearing on cable TV as a shopping host. Now he is not only a magician, but a multi-faceted entertainer. At Everland, he becomes a star once again by designing an event involving customer participation at the waiting lines for attractions. Having already fulfilled his dream to become a magician, he continues on . This time, this heart-pounding new dream of his is to raise a statue of himself at Everland.
