His sister is Ms. Jung Shi-sung who is 5 years older than him. I read she is in the world of Fashion Design too. Someone once told me that Jung Il-woo does not like anything posted about his sister, he is very protective of her, that’s why I will not create any posts or pages about her until I ask his permission.
