Welcome to 2008 in Jung II-woo’s Professional Life!
Jung II-woo took this year a bit easier! Thank goodness! He focused on getting better as an actor and enrolled in the Theater and Arts Department at Hanyang University. He worked really hard on mastering English and Japanese. He also trained and prepared for future roles. He landed the part of Iljimae for MBC’s Drama: “The Return of Iljimae.” This meant that he exercised a lot and trained in different martial arts to do it well.
He started shooting the drama “The Return of Iljimae” in July of this year (about a year after he was done in High Kick), so he was really busy traveling to locations and working hard to be Iljimae. At the end of the year he started promotional work for the drama.
