Actor and ASTRO member Cha Eunwoo is slated to appear on the popular variety show Return of Superman in March. This appearance comes nearly three years after his last visit to the show in August 2021. When the episode airs, viewers will see him meet the first son of fencer Kim Junho, who shares his name.

The anticipation around Cha Eunwoo‘s return to the show is high. The last time he was on Return of Superman, he and fellow ASTRO member MJ spent time with the three young children of retired soccer player Park Jooho. Known for his talent and visuals, his behavior on the show earned him the nickname “genius of childcare.” He did so well with Naeun, Jinwoo, and Gunhoo that fans are excited to see how he’ll interact with 27-month-old Kim Eunwoo. They’re looking forward to seeing what kind of bond he’ll forge with his namesake.

Genius of childcare

Kim Eunwoo, a regular on Return of Superman with his father, Kim Junho, has won over audiences with his gentle nature. His adorable chubby appearance earned him nicknames like “chubby legs” and “gentle boy.” His visuals, reminiscent of his father’s, have also drawn considerable attention.

The connection between Cha Eunwoo and Kim Eunwoo was first brought up on a previous episode of the show, where Kim Junho name-checked the ASTRO member. In that episode, which aired on the 23rd of last month, the fencer and his son were watching the sunrise together to celebrate the New Year. Suddenly, Kim Jun-ho said, “There’s a really handsome uncle named Cha Eunwoo who has the same name as Eunwoo. May Eunwoo be as successful as Uncle Cha Eunwoo. This year is for Cha Eunwoo and Kim Eunwoo.”

The production team also actively courted the idol by adding a caption to the scene that said, “Uncle Cha Eunwoo, we must meet.”
