The baking has began! The cake to make today is ‘Blueberry fresh cream cake’ made by vanilla cake mix! He prepared it for fans who are not familiar with baking to make it in a short time.
Breaking eggs with just one hand. The other hand is just supporting it. One hand is enough.

Slight smile on his face induces heart fluttering.
Performance during cooking is also important for the cooking sexy man. #CookingSexyMan #BackHug #HeartFluttering

Continuing with Ilwoo’s story:
By the way, Was Jung il woo good at baking by nature?
A doubt came into our mind. Is he really good at making icing? Is decorating cake that easy normally?
So, we decided to turn back a day before to find out is Jung il woo the king of baking in real.
And we found another amazing fact.
Jung Il woo appeared at CJ CheilJedang Beksul Cooking Studio on September 3 which was a day before the event. He disclosed that it is his first time to bake a cake* shyly different to confident look to Chef Jeong Ji Won.
Is it because the event held with CJ CheilJedang Beksul Cooking Studio? He looked like a professional chef when he prepares for cooking.
A desire to look like a cooking sexy man in front of the fans! He practiced making cake and brownie earlier.
He is concentrating on chef’s explanation again and again.
Put this egg here? H…Here?
This is a piece of cake! He felt confident because of the cheers from the female staffs.
Yes! I can do baking as well. Jung il woo is wearing confidence now.
※ The features of cooking sexy man. Beware you could fall in love with him and can’t stop watching it because you will be keep watching at it ※
Pour the batter into the cake pan after stir it well. Add a pinch of awesome laughter
The most important of baking, icing! I’ll success with icing today for tomorrow!!!
We looked at close to him to find his weak point since he claims himself to be a king of baking during practice.
We thought we could find his weak point because he came a day before to practice…!
It was actually his plan to make a gift to fans a day before.
“Shall I bake a brownie followed by cake now for the fans?”
Dealt the batter for brownie quickly
Make it delicious. So quick to put it in the microwave. You mean oven?
Jung il woo’s heartwarming features revealed here again. Since the cake made through baking class will be sent to children patient in Seoul Children’s hospital, the fans cannot taste their cakes so he prepared cake and brownie for the fans.
Heart, heart with my heart. Love you guys!
Looking at me only. Woo- Would you take my heart?
I and you, we are all singles! Heaven for the singles and hell for the couples!
Jung il woo was surely the king of the king, baKING.
Then, should we recognize him as a cooking sexy man?
“There are lack of sexy features!” Then we should show you more sexy features..
Where are you putting your lips on!
Was he not satisfied with sensuous allure appealed by rolled up shirts? He presented 36 kisses for 36 people joined the baking class. Put on deep red lipstick

The gift package passed to the fans who participated in baking class.
The certificate set a seal with lips, Jung il woo handkerchief and heart brownie.
The remaining brownie turned into brownie ball and became a precious gift with 200% heart.
He headed off to the children’s Hospital in Seoul, Korea with cake made through baking class after the event.
“Hello”, “Welcome” he greeted with director of the hospital and delivered the cakes and donated 10 million won through Community Chest of Korea to support children patient with low income in Seoul Children’s Hospital.
He finished his September 4th, with happy smile by spending happy time with children after giving them surprise gifts of toys.
It was fun baking class with cooking sexy man Jung il woo who knows the joy of sharing.
We need a special name for Jung il woo combining of “Heartwarming city man (Dda Do Nam)” and “Cooking sexy man (Yo Saek Nam)”!

Ready for the second post? This is the barbecue in Japan:
September 13, 2015 …WOO hoo! 13!
Jung Il-woo travelled to Japan for another Fan Meet. This time for a Barbecue with 500 fans! It was held in a camping ground. He prepared his grandmother’s recipe of the traditional seaweed soup Koreans eat for their birthdays. He also prepared traditional sweets “약밥” (yak bap) He also mingled with the fans and took photos.
Wondering what Yaksik or yakbap is? I did, so here is what I found out: It is a sweet Korean dish made by steaming glutinous rice, and mixing with chestnuts, jujubes, and pine nuts. It is seasoned with honey or brown sugar, sesame oil, soy sauce, and sometimes cinnamon.
This is a photo Jung Il-woo posted what may have inspired him?:
🎁#약밥 꿀맛😋 . Yak bap Sweet Taste!
And these were the ones he made:
These are other I found:
Would you look at that heart! WOO-w! I really want to try to make these! They look good! Jung Il-woo Ssi! Won’t you teach us to make these!?
Well now let’s go to the barbacue… right before it started, someone was picking… taking the scene in:
Getting ready and peeking in…Cr. Japanese 10th Anniversary Thank You Book
