Jung Il-woo back from Europe, heads to Japan


Jung Il-woo in London in April

After Return of Iljimae actor Jung Il-woo wrapped his series in early April, he headed to Europe for a solo vacation. He started off in England, where he shot some photos for Elle Magazine (pics below), then set off through the Continent, some photos of which he posted on his mini-homepage (also below).

Now the actor is back at home, has shorn his Iljimae hair short, and is planning his next official activity in the form of Japanese fanmeeting. I wouldn’t think Jung has a very high profile in Japan — his previous projects weren’t really export pieces, like the family sitcom Unstoppable High Kick — but Return of Iljimae is currently broadcasting in Japan, where it was pre-sold even before its Korean premiere.

The event will be held on June 20 in Tokyo.

The Europe photos were all taken in mid-late April; this shot below is the most recent and shows his shorter hair; it was taken at a May 16 blood drive at Hanyang University.

 

Here are the London-shot photos from Elle magazine:

 

But here are more candid shots, also in London:

 

And a few in Barcelona:

I'm not sure I like his new haircut.. It looks a little too chunky and choppy. Maybe it's a bad angle? o.O

Ahh, magazine-sponsored vacations. Do Korean celebs these days manage to go on vacation in a foreign country WITHOUT a photobook/magazine shoot while they're there? And how many times can celebs do photoshoots in London or Paris without it getting old? You'd think someone would try something new, like Brazil or Egypt. I'd be interested in seeing THOSE shoots..

The photos themselves are nice. I'm amused by his purple/pink bag in the last few shots. XD

Looks happier in Barcelona, than in London. Rainy day blues.

Much prefer his long hair, new cut looks like he had Han Hyo Joo's hairdresser from Brilliant Legacy.

If Korea is to make their version of HanaKimi they should definitely make him the lead role of Izumi Sano, he has the perfect image..especially with those long legs..

Didn't he go backpacking by himself? I guess this is how stars do it, they backpack in style. I imagined him in North Face from head to toe.

i know i'm a sucker for pretty boys but...
he looks more feminine than i am TT______TT
(like a tall lady who can pass as a guy, well i guess it goes both ways :p)
i dunno if i should be happy about that (him being more feminine than an actual boyish girl like me) or not. ahaha.

Nice to see him put his celebrity to a good cause.

But woah Jung Il-woo, in that pic of his blood donation, looks so much like Yoon Jin-seo (his Return of Iljimae co-star)!

He is so thin and pale! Love the 1st shot from Barcelona. Carefree yet cool. So damn pretty!

Awwww!!! Finally, news about him..
I love him in past, present and future..

Yes, he's a pretty boy and he should be in F4 Boys Over Flowers..

His current haircut suits him more..
Wish he had shorter haircut just like in the old days (High Kick and My Love)..

Always love him..
Il Woo yaa~~~I love you just the way you are....

Hmm.....interesting fashion choices. O_o
I think I prefer the Joseon attire.
And the longer hair suits him.
But I do like the spectacles. :D

Doesn't Partner need a smexy, young intern added to the cast? ;)

These are great pictures of him. Very handsome man. However.....could someone please explain to him that it's not a vacation if you are "working" by doing a photo shoot; that's a business trip. :p

i don't like his haircut coz it make him look like the guy in "IT STARTED WITH A KISS", a taiwanese actor. I think he's way too good looking.

I'd like to see him carry a clean cut hair.. I bet he's prettier than that long crop he still is having even the latest one with his blood letting session. (prettier than most of us mere mortals).

i definitely like his personal style. the elle style doesn't appeal to me at all. i wonder if I could pull off his hair. again, i like his hair better in the candid shots than in the elle photos.

wow! I just noticed his huge tote bag! that's hot!

It seems that he's naturally pretty as a real Korean style (small eyes, long face) he's very manly in return of Iljimae :)
