In addition to his judo career, Cho has also made numerous appearances on the Korean television sports variety show Cool Kiz on the Block as a coach. His appearances on the show made news headlines and he became highly searched on Korean search rankings after airings of the show due to his unexpected humour and wit.[3]

They were nicknamed "the Judo Family" due to the whole family being highly involved in different aspects of the sport.
