After the success of the recently released Netflix series “D.P”, many netizens have raised their interest in the actor who plays the main role – Jung Hae-in.
Jung Hae-in became famous thanks to his impressive acting that has been proved through various famous works. As one of the hottest actors recently, Jung Hae-in received many advertisements and big movie project offers. Let’s find out more about Jung Hae-in’s background information!
Jung Hae-in was born into a wealthy family
Jung Hae-in’s parents are operating a hospital, and his father is currently working as a professor in ophthalmology at a Medical University in Korea. Moreover, Jung Hae-in’s third great-grandfather is Jeong Yak-yong, a great thinker of the later Joseon period.
Jung Hae-in’s net worth, counting to 2021
Jung Hae-in’s net worth is reported to be at around 1 to 5 million USD. Accordingly, it has increased significantly since the beginning of 2021 and is still rising. Surprisingly, most of his income was from film and drama projects and verified transactions.
He knows how to manage his own finance
It is revealed that Jung Hae-in is a person who appreciates money, and he usually keeps his money in separate savings. However, one thing that makes him invest a lot of money is fermented barley. In an episode of “The Walk-cumentation”, Jung Hae-in went to a restaurant and asked for beers but got refused because they thought he was underage due to his young look.
The actor’s advertising contracts after Something in the Rain
Jung Hae In‘s contracts are said to have tripled in value after the JTBC drama, from the previous 100 million KRW per each of his advertisements. He recently had ads for Dongwon F&B’s high-end Korean food brand and Annick Goutal’s Sesa Living perfume brand.
Despite coming from a wealthy family, handsome actor Jung Hae In continues to demonstrate his talent and ability to the public. Jung Hae In starred in two dramas in 2021, D.P. and Snowdrop, both of which have received a lot of attention. Especially for Snowdrop, in which Jung Hae In will work with Jisoo (BLACKPINK).
Adapted from the popular webtoon, D.P tells about the experiences in the army of a young man named Ahn Jun Ho (played by Jung Hae In).
Private soldier Jun Ho is a confused youth who served in the military normally like other Koreans. One day, he suddenly becomes a member of the military defector arrest team. As such, he is tasked with capturing deserters and must grapple with the more troubling cases of why some soldiers feel they have no other choice but go absent without official leave.
To catch deserters, Ahn must learn from his designated teammate Han Ho Yeol (Koo Gyo-hwan). All of the episodes feature scenes of them chasing different deserters and learning more about their circumstances. The episodes build on one another, gradually revealing Ahn, Han, and the rest of their military unit’s stories. This is a near-perfect representation of the Korean military.
Jung Hae In‘s acting skills in D.P are highly appreciated by domestic and international audiences. Please look forward to Snowdrop and Jung Hae In‘s other future works!
