Here’s what Son Ye Jin’s first K-drama boyfriend looks like after taking a break from acting for years 

Do you remember the actor who acted alongside Son Ye Jin as a couple in her first drama? 

21 years ago, Son Ye Jin landed her first K-drama female lead role in ‘Delicious Proposal‘. She played the love interest of rising actor Jung Joon. Delicious Proposal starred many popular actors. In addition to the two leads, So Ji Sub, Kwon Sang Woo, Ji Sung, Hong Soo Hyun also appeared. Over two decades after the drama’s release, the cast has all achieved success in their careers and become top names in the industry, except for the male lead Jung Joon.

After ‘Delicious Proposal’, Jung Joon took part in quite a few more dramas and movies but did not generate much buzz. While other cast members of ‘Delicious Proposal‘ were inexperienced rookies at the time the drama was broadcast, Jung Joon had more experience in acting, but he later struggled to have a breakout role to prove his ability and boost his reputation. By the time Son Ye Jin, Ji Sung, and So Ji Sub were all promoted to A-listers, Jung Joon’s career took a step backward as he went from playing a lead role to being cast in a supporting role. From 2014 onwards, he has not joined any new projects and also kept his personal life a low profile. 

Recently, Jung Joon shared some photos of his daily life on SNS, surprising netizens with his current looks. Jung Joon at the age of 43 seems like he no longer pays much attention to appearance. Although he has gained weight compared to the past, he still looks young and healthy.
