On the September 18 airing of 'Section TV,' Jung Woo Sung was one of the guests, discussing everything from his new movie 'Asura: The City of Madness' to his good looks. 

When reporter Park Seul Gi asked him, "Since when were you so good looking?" Jung Woo Sung joked, "Since birth," bringing laughter. 

Park Seul Gi commented, "You'll probably still be getting date requests at sixty years old." However, Jung Woo Sung said that he "must marry" before then, quipping, "Who goes on dates at 60 years old?

The actor was also asked about his tall height, which had caused him a great deal of embarrassment in his young age. He said, "I was so tall that I had to always sit at the very back. I hated being so tall that I would purposely walk with my back bent. When I first said that I wanted to be an actor, people told me that I can't be one because I'm too tall. They said I'm dreaming too dangerously and will become irrelevant if I try to be a model-turned-actor But I became the first actor [in Korea] to come from a modeling background," revealing that he set the path for the many model-turned-actors to come. 


Props to Jung Woo Sung for going after his dream despite all the naysayers!

    I don't know why but i find model-turn-actor like hong jong hyun, sung joon and others so charming. They just have that authenthic chic look on their face rather than the flower boy face

    I didn't know being tall would be disadvandageous for acting... Everyone wants to be taller now.
