Jung Il Woo’s Homme Fatale Photo Shoot with “Cosmopolitan”


Jung Il Woo has returned to the small screen as the sexy homme fatale scheduler in SBS’s “49 Days.” During the photo shoot for Cosmopolitan, Jung showed off his masculinity and sexiness by shooting topless.

When asked about his role in “49 Days,” Jung Il Woo stated, “I was drawn to the character because unlike traditional Korean Grim Reapers who wear hanbok (traditional Korean clothing), my character is a lot more stylish, carefree, and modern. And there was a certain charm to playing such an unconventional character. I’m having a lot of fun expressing him.”  

Jung Il Woo rose to stardom as the rebellious Yoon Ho in MBC sitcom “Unstoppable High Kick” (2006-2007). Since then, he has continued to act in various dramas, movies, and plays. Jung said, “I jumped into theater acting after hearing how the experience helps actors improve acting. At first, I was a bit afraid, but I pushed myself to mature as an actor.”
