Welcome to the year 2012 of Jung II-woo’s professional life!
Jung II-woo hit the year running…as he started the filming on “The Moon that Embraces the Sun.” The Sixth episode with our dear Prince Yang Myung aired on January 10th with huge ratings. This drama was an absolute hit and helped to keep Jung II-woo very popular. The series finale recorded its highest ratings with a viewership of 42.2 percent nationwide, and an average of 45.8 percent in the Seoul National Capital Area. That almost 50 % of the people who are watching TV! WOO-W!
You’d think Jung II-woo would take time off after three dramas in a row, but nope, not this super man! Even before “The Moon that Embraces the Sun” was done, he travelled to Japan to a special “49 Days” Fan event. He travelled to New York to a First Look Magazine photo shoot. Then he went back to Japan in April to promote “Flower Boy Ramyun Shop.” In between travels he had many interviews and worked as model for “Holika Holika” and “Emprani.”
He also endorsed other brands throughout this year and in to the next like: LGE Optimus LTE II phones, Doritos, FILA and Domino’s Pizza.
In May Jung II-woo travelled to China, to promote his work and appeared in a variety show called “Up Go” which helped him become even more popular in China. The rest of the year Jung II-woo continued to ride the wave of his success of 49 Days, Flower Boy Ramyun Shop and The Moon that Embraces the sun visiting many countries like Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand and China.
In December, he held his first Fan Meet in Taiwan. He delighted around 1200 fans in two very special Fan Meets on the same day. He sang to them, danced, and even took the time to shake every fan’s hand. Such a special day prepared by such special person as him! The fans showed him love right back by receiving him in every airport with banners, flowers and even songs! They even rode their scooters behind his car as escorts! So sweet!
So now delight in this, another great year for Jung II-woo!
