During his solo promotions he faced heavy criticism from SECHSKIES fans, as he changed his music genre from Pop to Hip-Hop, although many argued saying SECHSKIES had many hip-hop influences in their music.
In 2004, Jiwon made his acting debut, in the romance comedy film "Marrying a High-School Girl (여고생 시집가기)", which he had later announced that he was forced into the role by his company at the time, even noting the reason he shaved his head was to get out of the role.
During his time solo, he had joined Tiger JK's crew "Movement", and had created music and performed with them for a few years.
Jiwon is also considered an entertainment icon, appearing on many variety shows and earning himself the nickname "Eun Choding" (Elementary-kid Eun) for his childish personality on television.

In 2011, Jiwon had formed and led a new group, Clover, with members Glime and Mr. Typhoon, which was met with outstanding positivity despite being a hip-hop group.
After a few years of promotion with Clover and focusing on television promotions, Jiwon had reunited with SECHSKIES, having a reunion concert through the variety show Infinite Challenge. The group had later signed a contract with YG Entertainment to start promotions again, after their sudden disbandment in 2000.
