Welcome to the year 2014 of Jung Il-woo’s professional life!

During this year Ilwoo Oppa worked really hard.  He completed the drama Golden Rainbow.  On February 20th of this year, he graduated form Hanyang University.  This was a huge feat that took him almost six years as he tried hard to balance his work and study life.

In June fans received the delightful news that Ilwoo had been cast for the drama “The Night Watchman’s Journal” as Prince Lee Rin.   He also entertained many with his appearance in Infinite Challenge, that took him to the FIFA World Cup all the way in Brazil.  Also in June he held two Fan Meets in Osaka and Tokyo.

No sooner was The Night Watchman’s Journal over, Jung Il-woo was on a plane off to Shanghai, China as he had been the only Korean invited to the Chinese Beauty Cosmo Awards.  He received the “Forever Young Icon” award.  This and his popularity rise in this country would yield him not only over 10 million followers in Weibo, but various offers which he would follow up in 2015.

Towards the end of the year he had many interviews and photo shoots.  One of the most gorgeous photo shoots he has ever had took place in Bali, Indonesia.  His beauty is such in some of these photos that one wonders if he is really human or an angel that fell from heaven!

In November, he also held his fourth Korean Fan Meeting and aside from singing and answering questions he even prepared coffee for fans!  He also had a very special little lady join him on the stage.  Do you know who I’m talking about?

In December Jung Il-woo travelled to Normandy, France to Mont Saint Michel.  There he visited Le Mere Poulard and held anevent where he help cook and served 100 very happy costumers!  And as if this wasn’t an amazing year already, Ilwoo won MBC’s “Top Excellence Award, Actor in a Special Project Drama” award. What a way to end the year!  The icing on the cake!!!
