[NEWS – STARCAST] Curious of Jung il woo’s mind! Investigating his mind with psychological inspection

Actors that should express various lives by taking different roles in every piece they take! There is no time to rest for stars that have tight schedules and get public’s attention. If they focus on their roles in the drama, they say they don’t have much chance to look back at themselves…. Then how would they feel actually? Jung il woo who is showing off his various charms and all-killing MBC ‘The Night Watchman’! We release the psychological inspection journal of him!

After debuting with ‘Unstoppable High Kick’ in 2006, there wasn’t much time to look back at me until meeting ‘The Night Watchman’ in 2014. I decided to take a psychological inspection in order to look inside me such as to know ‘what kind of person I am and what I really like’. This psychological inspection was strongly recommended by an acquaintance, but I wanted to hear what my mind says through a professional. It is so called ‘Can you hear my heart?’

When explaining myself simply… I like to be alone. I like to be spontaneous and sometimes hear that I’m twofold since I’m too cautious. I get stressed by myself since I have greed in acting. I’m quiet and introvert when there are no schedules. But sometimes people around me thought I was strange since my funny and bright side were expressed through ‘Unstoppable High Kick’ and ’49 Days’. LOL. Was I really good at acting then?

Before the psychological inspection, I started to tell my story first to the counselor. The hardest thing for me recently was getting immersed in the new character of ‘The Night Watchman’ without enough break time after finishing ‘Golden Rainbow’. Also I had to manage schedule all night long everyday while shooting ‘The Night Watchman’ for 3 months. I talked naturally at this place too like as if when talking about where you’re hurt when talking to the doctor at the hospital.
I was so earnest with ‘The Night Watchman’ since it could be the last drama I would be appearing in my 20’s.  I felt so uneasy and nervous. I asked about advices from seniors and acquaintances of how I could act better. Shall we talk about the earnest psychological inspection by stopping my stories until here?

The earnest counseling time with psychologist Oh Ji Hee~
I felt so arranged and comforted by just telling my stories to the psychologist that would be embarrassing if I tell them to my family. It felt strange~.

Psychologist, what inspection do I take first?

Ms. Oh: I will run 3 tests in order to know about you although you don’t need special inspection. We’re going to carry out HTP picture inspection which is well known the most. It may read your mind though pictures of house, tree, and tree. They we will know about your internal conflict, fantasy, and feeling through MMPI personality test and SCT sentence completion test. I hope it would become an opportunity for you to know about your various aspects!

I didn’t expect to draw a picture by coming to get a psychology consultation. I drew ‘house, tree and people’ earnestly too!

What if my results come out bad when I don’t draw well? I was so worried about everything. But I should do what I have to do although I’m embarrassed, right?

What is the result? I will release it at the last~ so read this until the end! (Heart pounding~)

After the picture inspection was over, I started sentence completion inspection!
I heard it was just a simple inspection of completing incomplete sentences. But I became serious and laughed while I wrote the answers down by myself by getting to know about me. “Yes, right!” “I have thought like that”~

We release Jung il woo’s SCT questions slightly~
What I want is to (become better, and improve)
Our family is (a harmonious family) compared to other families.
My mother is the (greatest woman among those that I know of).

My psychology can be read when I write what I think? It’s amazing~!
The person that I like the most is (my family).
If I become young again (I’m still young now).
There is much affection expressed toward my family. I think I feel more precious about my family since I have started life in society quicker than my friends by debuting at young age. It would be because I’m a type of person who relieves stress by spending time with family.

I took the MMPI next! I had more than 500 questions but the most memorable question was ‘Are you always happy?’. I felt that I’m really happy and get great love when I read the question at that short moment.

After finishing the inspection, we heard about ‘the result of Jung il woo’s psychology inspection’ from the psychologist Oh Ji Hee. I thought I was the one who knew me the most, but I felt I was meeting another person.

Ms. Oh: You have big interest in art in accordance with your job and have an eye for beauty. Since your feminine interest for art is higher than your masculine hobby, you have sharp perception and sensitive. But you have good interpersonal relations due to your sociable personality. You match well with the leader role among people since you have ability to perceive and logical personality.
I acknowledge myself about pretty things, exhibition, and interior designs… But I have abilities of a leader and to perceive?… Shall I show my abilities more by doing my best?

Ms. Oh: You have characteristic of giving stress by yourself since you’re strict to yourself than other external factors. (Laughter) And you have big curiosity and personality of being good at imagining and expressing.
That’s right! It’s amazing that you know that I’m the type who rethinks about my mistakes while getting over other’s easily since I like to do things by my own from 1 to 10.

Ms. Oh: It seems that you’re very tired now by looking at the picture inspection, but you can overcome this with your personality although you get stressed by preparing your drama. You seem to behave optimistically and bright to others excessively, but this is done due to caring others first. So you feel more safe and comfortable with your family who knows you well. It is good to show the real you sometimes although you’re a considerate person.
Since Jung il woo is a person with bright and optimistic personality, his results were good as anticipated. But he didn’t have much time to relax since he is busy these days. Please spend your time with various hobbies actively when you don’t shoot. That would ‘heal’ you sufficiently.

 The most big harvest and ‘healing’ thing was that I spent happy moment of looking back of myself rather than just being healed through the psychology inspection.

Also one more thing, I thought I was totally immersed in my role of the drama but I got the opportunity to know that I didn’t know about myself well. I hope the healing of my mind would be conveyed to ‘Lee Rin’ of the drama who is just alike me causing me to spilling my affection toward him. Let’s do well until the last, Lee Rin!

What’s your ‘healing’ energy? Is it…me?

[Video] 190814 Good Morning Date with Jung Il Woo

Categories: Drama, Interview, The Night Watchman, Video | Leave a comment

8-year-old Jung il woo★makes dream come true of buying own house?!

MBC’s ambitious work, ‘The Night Watchman’ has finally started. Adult actors are getting more expectation due to excellent performance of children actors! In the middle of it there is Jung il woo who has changed into Joseon Dynasty’s prince!
He had a good happening recently. He made his dream come true of getting a house at his age of 28. STARCAST exclusively releases Jung il woo’s love house! Shall we peep into his secret place?

But why am I looking at my notebook when I’m told to show my house? Tada~ This is! My special space <> which I prepared by myself for 2 months. You’re not thinking that you were deceived, right? ^^;; I will tell you the story of the homepage production which you may look forward to from now on!

Why did I make a homepage recently when I’m meeting fans through various SNS? The reason is that I, Jung il woo want to make a comfortable place for communicating with fans.

The word ‘picture is memory’ keeps touching my heart while I get older. I have posted my daily life in pictures often on SNS, but I felt 2% was not enough to quench the thirst of our fans. So I’m going to record every moment that I want to share with you guys even including my little happenings through <> homepage.

I experienced well this time that there are so many various homepages. With the thought of seeing much would become a great study, I started to look much! But the result came out that… I began to desire much since I became picky. I had a meeting with a homepage maker with my concepts and sketches. When I think of that time, I think we spent endless meeting time for more than 3 hours in order to explain the concepts and ask questions that I was curious about after making greeting at our first meeting. Since the concept came out~ I earnestly focused on the design!
And the next step was shooting pictures that would be posted on the homepage~
It was the first time for me planning things since the start although I have shot many pictorial magazine since my debut. I proceeded on things all by myself such as setting the picture concept, clothes, borrowing places with thrilled mind than any other time.

What was the standard of choosing the place? A comfortable place and where I wanted to share to you usually. Itaewon where I often go as the place to meet friends, a café, Daelim Contemporary Art Museum where I go whenever the exhibition changes, and Taean Beach where I wanted to share the place since the sand hill is so impressive~

I shot a picture at the café where I often go since I thought I had to surveying the venue previously.

I had a meeting with the photographer since early in the morning before shooting pictures.
As everyone does, I think I get to express myself well at familiar places and in front of a comfortable person. I slightly looked forward to the result before shooting pictures with the photographer who has been working with me several times.

I held a flower in my mouth which I bought at a flower shop which I often go in Itaewon Street.
I always have a flower picture whenever I shoot a picture. Is it because buying flowers at a flower shop where I regularly go is familiar to me since my mother likes flowers? I think I naturally head to a flower shop whenever I want to change the mood due the weather change.

My photographer caught the scene of me looking vacantly for a moment. -_-
Actually it hasn’t been long since I got to like outdoor shooting. It has been quite while that I could get familiar with it, but I get nervous of people’s eyes sometimes. But this time I looked at things vacantly by forgetting about the shooting since I had many staffs and felt comfortable.

I went up on the walls for shooting a smart picture.

I shot a picture with wide fixed eyes as a rabbit at the side of the wall who had scribbled on~
This is an image of me shooting a bizarre picture as if I could believe it’s an image of my usual life. Actually, 50% of pictures in my mobile phone is like this kind of pictures~

I gave different opinions by checking pictures I shot with the photographer in the break time.

And this picture! I asked to take a picture of me when I sat down accidentally by seeing cherries on the ground while I was moving to a different place. I think the charm of outdoor shooting is this. The charm of shooting various pictures according to the situation although there has been much prepared previously. Doesn’t it match with my clothes by chance?

And I moved to Daelim Contemporary Art Museum which is one of the places that I like the most. I visit the place whenever the exhibition changes. I spend joyful time when I see art pieces at the gallery without knowing time passing.
This is a picture taken outdoors of Daelim Contemporary Art Museum, and female staffs pick this as the best.

Since I had prepared much, the shooting didn’t end in a day. I shot again after several days! I visited the coastal dune at Sindu-ri, Taean-gun, Chungcheongnam-do with the thought of shooting at the sea.

I left trace of ‘Jung il woo has come’~
I cannot remember when it was the last time of me scribbling things like this. When I wrote my own name and I got to remember the memory of visiting the ocean with my family when I was young.

I took pictures in order to make you guys feel the sea vividly.
But why did I visit places only where I want to share?
Actually, I felt sad that there were not enough spaces where I could communicate with fans after my debut although I had thought about it. But since various places to communicate such as STARCAST has been formed, I got the chance to show the real Jung il woo that is not the character in dramas, my space, and my life style.
How was it? Do you feel that I have opened myself as the first promise that I made?

The homepage production team gathered after a month we had planned about the homepage and shot pictures for it. We had discussing time for the design by picking pictures and giving opinions about the plan altogether. Actually, it was a great time that I could meet people with various jobs while working together this time.

Because I got to know that there are many efforts and hard time of people making one homepage which I didn’t know when I was using it usually and slightly about fields that I didn’t know.

Memories of each moment are evoking while I’m writing <> production daily record that I proceeded for two months. Planner Mango who performed smart performance since the start and until the last of the homepage, photographer Kwon who shot every picture smartly although I had to change my clothes 15 times, and smart YourDev people who showed quick feedback to my detailed request such as ‘Can this be done? And that thing?’ in the small design and to the program! And also acquaintances that all brightly allowed me to use places when I asked for borrowing places. I will convey my deep gratitude by contacting you all through LINE ^^

The preparation of <> which will become ‘the link between you and me’ is finished.
I did the first release through STARCAST, and I’m going to release it at noon later to you guys. Please look forward to ~

Oh… I have a house…

But I don’t have a roommate to live with… I’m recruiting roommates~ “Will you be my roommate?”
