The Most Fearful Experience for Lee Jung-jae

We know that every job has big risks, so how about being an actor, like Lee Jung-jae chose? In a recent interview with GQ Korea magazine, Jung-jae said clearly that, “I don’t think my job as an actor makes me special at all, nothing different about me except that i can’t go out freely in places that much. My friend told that i have a job with the weakest position. What’s good about being an actor in Korea is besides getting a bit of extra food at restaurants?’ Being an actor is just another job.”

Lee Jung-jae said that there is almost no difference between the real him and the way he is on screen. But, in television he is bit careful about personal life, especially regarding relationships and family. Many people use his information freely, and they just blame the Idols and popular figures. He could be wrapped up in rumors with fans or netizens around him getting involved. But Jung-jae tries to live as himself.
