People said it’s better to see it with the naked eyes as it won’t lie and never gives you wrong impression on what you see. That is what happen to us when we come across actor Jung Il-woo (@Actorjungilwoo) last week in Times Square as he’s here for the Holika Holika promotion.

We would say he’s so friendly in person as he keeps on waving, smiling and even so sporting with the camera all around. Continue reading
