Jung Il-woo Gets Topless for Cosmopolitan

Quickly re-gaining his popularity as a “homme fatale” grim reaper/scheduler in “49 Days,” Jung Il-woo is also back to modeling with this spread for Cosmopolitan.

Though he first came to the spotlight with a cute and popular character in “Unstoppable High Kick,” 5 years after his rise to fame, the young actor transformed into a man as the “scheduler in his latest drama.

Following his drama choices, Jung Il-woo came out manly in the current issue of Cosmopolitan, shirtless in a red tub and a cigarette in hand.

During shooting, the actor spoke of his new role in “49 Days,” in an interview, “Not the traditional grim reaper wearing a gat (a traditional Korean hat), [the character] has a charm of a stylish and free-spirited modern reaper, and I’m enjoying filming.”

After a not-so-successful role in “Take Care of Agasshi,” Jung Il-woo went to the theater with the play “Beautiful Sunday,” playing a challenging role of a young gay man with AIDS. The rising star explained how his theater experience helped him get over a rough spot in his career:

“My sunbaes (seniors) advised me to go into theater in order to raise my acting ability, and as I thought it was a good idea, I decided to perform on stage. At first, I was frightened of doing theater, but as I held on, I was able to confront thoughts like ‘I can’t do anything.'”

Jung Il-woo hopes to have expressive eyes like actor Jo In-sung, and he’s already to a great re-start in SBS‘s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “49 Days” after a successful run in the theater. Let’s hope he continues to make good role decisions.

The photo spread appears in the April issue of Cosmopolitan Korea.

    I never knew that smoking could look this cool. I now want to start so I can be like Mr. Jung.

    • piano says:

      cool, if only everyone did everything they saw idols doing in photos then the world would be a lot easier.

    • Rose says:

      I hope you don’t mean that it looks cool. It’s not cool and it will kill you. I smoke and now I have COPD and it’s not fun. You can’t breath like a normal person does. PLEASE DON’T SMOKE. The cigarette is probably only a prop for the photo shoot. He probably doesn’t smoke

      • piano says:

        He’s korean and most korean men smoke. So, no.. it’s not going to be a prop.

        • o junks says:

          Isn’t that the truth? I’ve seen more women smoking as of late too. That really surprised me.

          • Carpet says:

            Well then they all smoke.. men and women. I’m not sure the imported indovietmalaypinay brides smoke though, because it’s hard to get cigarettes when you’re locked in a cupboard at night.

  4. Kai says:

    What is the point of showing the cigarette. Is this an ad for the tobacco compahy?
