Year 3: Nov 6, 2008 – Nov 6, 2009
During year 3, Jung Il woo was happy when the first episode of his second drama “The Return of Iljimae” aired on January 21st of 2009, with a rating of 18.5% in all of South Korea! This drama helped Jung II-woo not only grow as an actor but as a person as well.
Here is a video I made with the actress Yoon Jin-seo who plays Dal-yi and Wol-hee singing one of the songs of the series: “The Place I dream of” She has such a beautiful voice! It includes all the beautiful scenes between her as Dal-yi and Iljimae.
Here is his first kiss on screen ever… it parallels his real life’s first kiss in the sense that the first move was done by the girl… he is kissed by her.
He also meets another actress who would become what he has sometimes referred to as his only female friend… Sandara Park (Dara). The coming scene is very sweet:
And finally he ends up with the woman he would love for the rest of his life in this drama, the ever patient and loving Wol-hee. This scene is one of my favorite love scenes filmed by Jung Il woo. Now that I think about it, I think it’s because it is the only one of its kind!
Here are some Behind the Scenes Photos:
Gosh! What a cutie! And this one is hilarious:
Ha! What a great capture!!! He was so cold filming this drama, and he learned a lot as actor about being warm when filming a Saeguk (Historical Drama).
During this time Jung Il woo appeared in Elle Girl Magazine:
His second drama this year was “Take Care of the Lady.” Sadly his character, Lee Tae-yoon, a Civil Rights Lawyer, was not well written, so when it came time for him to act it, he felt very lost at times. Still as hard working as he is, and such great actor… he managed to save the character and showed us a more mature Ilwoo.
This is a Behind the Scenes video of the poster photo shoot… it is hilarious to watch Yoon Sang-hyun fooling around! He is so playful!
And I really love this other photoshoot with roses:
I was inspired to make this video when I saw it…
Here are photos from the episodes:
And this part… episode 5? Is one of my favorites in this drama… he sings without any music… Jung Il woo said, that it was hard for him to do this part… I thought he did such a great job…
This is a pretty sweet music MV made by the a fan: xcoogoox:
This is a photo shoot from this time:
And an interview…
This year he also participated in the hilarious variety show called “Happy Together.” It is so fun to watch this show and luckily a fan called “ah boo” translated them all to English! Thank you!!! This one is so funny… they are so open about farting!
Here are a few photos:

During this year he also became an angel fro Innolife’s Love Exhibit:
