Jung Woo Sung’s good manners didn’t stop there, as he also pulled out the chair for her. Out of embarrassment, Lee Young Ja joked, “You don’t know women very well. I sit with two chairs put together.” Jung Woo Sung played along with her joke by putting two chairs together and pulling them out at the same time.
In response to his sweet manners, Lee Young Ja personally mixed his squid bibimbap for him, making everyone watching them jealous. Jung Woo Sung couldn’t contain his excitement, and after trying the food, he eagerly responded, “It’s so delicious! How can the squid still be alive? It’s sweet.”

Lee Young Ja mentioned there must be certain charms about Jung Woo Sung that gave him the will to stay as his manager for that long. His manager praised the actor, saying, “He’s kind and considerate. He treats me like his younger brother rather than a manager. Yesterday he bought me two suits from expensive shops and delicious food at a nice restaurant.”
