Captivating Magician. Fascinating Actor. Skilled Consultant. That’s Neo in a nutshell.

Whether it’s a corporate or a personal event, creating and performing customized spell-binding illusions to keep you enthralled during the performance and to stay in your memories long after the event has ended, that’s what Neo does best.

It all started in…

Seoul, Korea when Neo was only a teenager 15. Armed with relentless enthusiasm and curiosity for the magic of life itself, Magician Neo began his formal training in the arena of theatrical arts including the study of acting, dancing, backstage production, and directing among various aspects of the magical discipline. To explore his passion and develop his skills, he toured throughout Korea performing as an illusionist, professional dancer, consultant, and director.

Been there, Done that..

Is something Neo can boast of (though he isn’t very boastful) as he has been a performing magician and illusion artist for 20+ years now.

Performing at corporate functions, events, weddings, cruises and parties, Neo gained a vast and extensive range of professional experience right from his early days. The multinational corporations Neo has performed for include prestigious names like Hyundai, Fox Studio, Sales Force, Dell, and Sony amongst many others.

Around the world in..

..a cruise ship. Recently, Neo has extended his career to perform around the world on the largest cruise ships, including Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian Cruise. Not to be mistaken for only performing in the high seas, Neo’s exceptional illusions have taken him across the globe from Korea, to the United States of America, and for the last 10 years, to Australia where he has hosted countless public, private and corporate shows.

Lights, Camera, Magic..

Neo guest starred at Korea’s largest magic festival, the very prestigious Gala Show at The Busan International Magic Festival, and staged his very own illusionist show at The International Train Exhibition in Dallas in the U.S.A .

Look..He’s on TV..

From guest appearances on prime mainstream Korean TV Channels like EBS, SBS and MBC, to conducting a class on Korean TV Show ‘Magic English’ for school students, Neo appeared on television quite a few times during his career.

As he is starting out to perform as an actor both to utilize as well as improve his performance skills and knowledge, we hope to see him more often on the flat screen.

Illusion Consultancy..

.. to make illusions come true. Neo not only creates his own magic tricks and illusions but also provides consultations to different industries for a smooth execution, a memorable and superlative performance, and a distinctive, enjoyable, and unparalleled experience.

And while designing his unique illusion artistry for various corporates, trade shows, theaters, and films, he not only draws from his own experiences, but also consults specialized experts, including those from Marvel Cinematic Universe Studio to deliver perfectly crafted, seamlessly choreographed and mesmerizing illusions.

As a token of this work, Neo was honoured to receive a nomination for “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Cast in a Motion Picture” by the Screen Actors Guild Award (SAGA) 2022 for his work in the fantasy superhero movie Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings under the Marvel banner.
