Jung Gyu-woon made acting his debut in 2004 with the mobile drama Five Stars. He first gained notice in 2008 when he took two contrasting roles — as a crazy young executive in Bitter Sweet Life and a calm and patient boyfriend who suffers for love in Women of the Sun.[1]

His popularity grew with the 2009 melodramas Again, My Love,[2] and Loving You a Thousand Times; the latter became the first Korean drama exported to Bulgaria.[3][4] In 2010 to 2011, Jung began to get cast in leading roles, which included a judo athlete training for the Olympics in Dr. Champ, a cop working in the violent crimes division in forensic medical series Sign,[1][5] and a man who falls for a maid in Romance Town.[6][7]

Jung received the best reviews of his career yet for his portrayal of a corporate spy in 2012's History of a Salaryman.[8][9] This was followed by the family drama Wonderful Mama (2013), the time travel thriller God's Gift - 14 Days (2014), and the makeover romantic comedy Birth of a Beauty (2014).

Personal lifeEdit

Jung married his girlfriend, a former model turned web designer, on April 5, 2014. On March 30, 2016 it was reported that he has divorced.[10][11][12]

In April 2017, Jung confirmed to be in a romantic relationship with a non-celebrity.[13] According to Jung's agency, he will be marrying for the second time on September 30, 2017. His fiancé is revealed to be a music student who majored in classical piano. The couple has been dating for one year before deciding to marry.[14][15]
