Welcome to the year 2015 of Jung Il-woo’s professional life!

Jung Il-woo was off to an early start this year.  After a short vacation in Bali with his family, he went to Taiwan on January 9th and held his second Fan Meeting “Ilwoo Together” on the 10th.  Very soon after, on February 1st, he held his first Fan Meet in Beijing, China.  For the rest of this year he would work in many projects in China.  It there was ever a Jung Il-woo Chinese year this was it!

During March attended a Biotherm event (in China) and flew various times for the filming of Star Chef, a Chinese cooking competition show, which aired on April 4th.  That show delighted many fans and continues to do it today as we get to see and enjoy Il-woo doing one of his favorite things: cooking.  As if this was not enough of the real Jung Il-woo he was also a guest on Episode 242 of ‘Running Man’.  Here we get to see him play various games where he had to run, squat and even “bite”!

In May, Jung Il-woo was very busy filming his first movie since 2007’s ‘My Love’ The Rise of a Tomboy.’  This Chinese movie was shot in China and Australia and Jung Il-woo acts with Zanilia Zhao.  He then endorsed Noblesse Cosmetics through various activities including attending the ‘WRTT,’ or Women’s Round Table Trust 10th Anniversary Charity Event and visiting sick children at a Shanghai hospital.

He then went on to film his first web drama through SOHU TV “High End Crush.”  During September he held to very special fan meetings.  The first one in Korea was for 36 lucky fans who had the unique opportunity to bake cakes with Jung Il-woo.  The second one held in Japan was fro 100 fans, and it was a barbecue where he cooked the traditional seaweed Korean birthday soup.

In October he made another of his dreams a reality, he designed his own clothing line we2 for a friend’s store Beaker/Xtore.   He also signed with a Chinese Entertainment company called Yuehua to oversee all his activities and promote him in China.  Shortly after this he joined the cast of “Beautiful Woman” a Chinese drama that sadly has been affected by the overall ban of China on Korean Products and Entertainment.  Luckily his other drama, High End Crush aired on November 14 and went on to be very successful with 200 million views in just four months.

Jung Il-woo culminated this wonderful year with a new calendar that celebrated his 10th anniversary as a professional actor.  What a productive year this was Jung Il-woo!
