He recalled, “I was given 3 months of free time before entering college. While I was thinking about what to do, I had a friend who was attending a famous acting academy. One day, he showed me a newspaper and said, ‘There’s something like this, do you want to try it together?’ That was a jeans model contest.”

So Ji-sub used to be told not to act when he debuted. So Ji-sub drew attention by saying, “When I debuted, Jang Dong-gun, Han Jae-suk and Song Seung-heon were popular. They all have thick double eyelids and handsome faces. When I went to auditions, they said, ‘No, you can’t do it.’ I don’t have double eyelids and my eyes are small, so I was often told that I shouldn’t be an actor.”
