Five Fun Facts About Jung Il Woo

This week, actor Jung Il Woo made news by switching agencies, signing with Haru Entertainment. His new agency promises to actively promote the Hallyu actor, who already won hearts in “The Return of Iljimae,” “Flower Boy Ramen Shop” and “The Moon Embracing The Sun.”

But before he becomes even more famous, here are a few facts you may not know about him.

1. Jung did not plan to study acting. He wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a television news anchorman, so he studied broadcasting at the Seoul Institute of the Arts, before transferring to the Theater and Film Department of Hanyang University.


2. He’s secretly a member of F4. Well, not really but he pals around with two actors who played F4 members in “Boys Over Flowers.” He went to high school with Lee Min Ho, who played Goo Jun Pyo, and is good friends with actor Kim Beom, who played So Yi Jung. In high school, Jung Il Woo and Lee Min Ho were part of a group of good-looking guys not unlike F4.

In 2006, the two friends were in a car accident that resulted in serious injuries.

“We’ve known each other since we were kids,” said Jung of Lee Min Ho. “But then we were in a life-and-death situation together, so now we’re friends who’ve hovered close to the afterlife together.”

Jung refers to Kim Beom, his “Unstoppable High Kick” co-star as being like a younger brother.

“When I was having rough times, he was there for me, and when he had troubles, I was there for him,” said Jung. “We’ve known each other for five years now. We sometimes go to each other’s houses and hang out, and we go to saunas together too. He’s a really dear friend to me.”

3. Jung Il Woo is really frank, whether he is talking about ratings, something most actors claim they don’t care about, or his dating style. He admits that he likes to say what he feels but that doesn’t mean some of his statements don’t embarrass him.

“When I am in a relationship I tend to get passionate fast, then cool down fast,” he said when asked about his dating style. “But my relationships and dating style do change every year. I wish I could take back what I said before.”

4. Although he kayaked and hiked on the show “One More Time: Ready Action,” his own hobbies are not so action oriented. He likes to watch films and write online reviews, go shopping and hang out with friends.

5. His favorite foods are cake and satay, although his favorite breakfast food is traditional doenjang soup with tofu and vegetables.

“My mother cooks it deliciously,” said Jung. “If my future wife doesn’t know how to cook, it I can teach her.”

While his female fans may be pleased to learn that no kitchen skills are required for the real-life role of Jung Il Woo’s wife, he says he has no plans to marry until he is 30.

On May 1, he had tweeted a photo hinting toward his new contract, showing himself holding a piece of paper that read, “Your frog (Jung Il Woo′s nickname) is doing well~~^^. The spring sun is so warm~ Haru (a day) is coming.”

The release added, “Jung Il Woo is an actor that is well known in Asian countries such as Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Thailand, and he wields great influence. We will make sure to have fans meet with Jung Il Woo more often, and we will support him like a family using all our systems to help him mature as a good actor.”

Jung Il Woo Plans to Set Up His Own Agency

It has become known that after leaving Management Soop, Jung Il Woo is leaning towards setting up his own agency.

The actor has been receiving many love calls from various agencies as a free agent after his departure from his former agency. Many of them offered hundreds of millions of won, but instead of signing with them, he recently decided to set up his own agency.

A source close to Jung Il Woo said, “Japan and China have been showing great interest in Jung Il Woo. He will be setting up his own agency with help from an acquaintance who can systemize his management. His decision was also influenced by how he hasn′t served his military duties yet. It seems he thinks he should promote alone for a year or two before his enlistment, instead of signing a long contract with another agency.”

The source added, “There is a high possibility his mother will be listed as the corporate representative, and many officials in entertainment and advertisement, who have been close with the actor since his debut, will join him at his agency.”

Jung Il Woo′s mother is an authority in cloth and fabrics. She teaches at the Korea National University of Cultural Heritage and was manager of the Antique Cloth Laboratory.

Jung Il Woo first rose to stardom through MBC′s High Kick and has been leading an impressive career through his appearances in The Return of IljimaeFlower Boy Ramen Shop and The Sun and the Moon.
