Jo's much-anticipated return to the stage was marked with controversy following reports that his salary would be the highest for any musical theater actor in Korean history.

Jo made his small screen debut in MBC 'sHorse Doctor, a 2012 historical series based on a true story about a Joseon -era low-class veterinarian specializing in the treatment of horses who rises to become the royal physician.
