The box office section will feature "Haeundae", "The Thieves", "Miracle in Cell No.7", "The Admiral: Roaring Currents", "Veteran", "Train to Busan", "A Taxi Driver", "Along With the Gods: The Two Worlds", and "Along With the Gods: The Last 49 Days".

Lee Jung Hyun Talks About How She Met Her Husband And Decision To Marry Him

In a recent interview with MyDaily, Lee Jung Hyun talked about her upcoming film “Love, Again, 2018” and how she met her husband!


“Love, Again, 2018” is a romantic comedy about married couple Sun Young (Lee Jung Hyun) and Hyun Woo (Kwon Sang Woo) and Hyun Woo’s old friend Sang Chul (Lee Jong Hyuk). Following the couple’s ceremony to commemorate their divorce, the barely separated pair gets tied up again once Sang Chul starts seeing Sun Young.


On April 7, Lee Jung Hyun tied the knot with an orthopedist who’s three years younger than her. Many stars attended her wedding ceremony, including Lee Byung Hun, Kim Min Jung, Park Kyung Lim, Baek Ji Young, Sung Yuri, Hwang Jung Min, Ko So Young, Yoo Ji Tae, Son Ye Jin, Uhm Ji Won, Oh Yoon Ah, Gong Hyo Jin, Sandara Park, Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun, iKON‘s Junhoe and Jinhwan, and more.


During the interview, Lee Jung Hyun talked about how she met her husband while filming “Love, Again, 2018.” She shared, “I really like babies, so I really wanted to get married, but I was getting older and there were less opportunities to meet men, so I had given up on marriage. I was of the mindset that I should just work hard on my career.”


She continued, “While working in this field, there aren’t many opportunities to date. I was also cautious about dating another celebrity. I went into filming for ‘Love, Again, 2018,’ and after meeting Kwon Sang Woo and Lee Jong Hyuk who are crazy about their kids, I got the feeling that I wanted to get married again.”


Lee Jung Hyun explained, “Kwon Sang Woo and Lee Jong Hyuk are very family-oriented. They can’t do anything against their wives, and they always send pictures of the park or place they visited with their family to the group chat. I was very jealous after seeing [the pictures]. I wished I had a family like that as well.”


On her marriage, Lee Jung Hyun said, “[We] developed romantic feelings while I was filming ‘Love, Again, 2018,’ and we held our wedding near the end of filming.”


The actress said, “I met my husband through a blind date. He’s such a nice and sincere person, I thought, ‘Ah, it would be nice to get married to this person.’ My husband was originally a big fan of me. He has all my albums from my first album.”


Finally, Lee Jung Hyun said, “I think it’s a fortune that I met my husband. I was thankful. It’s to the point where I wondered if there’s someone out there who likes me this much. I’m very thankful.” She added, “I really want children. We’re planning [to have children].”

Lee Jung-hyun finally gets to laugh: ‘Love, Again’ is the actor’s first rom-com in her two decade career

Actor and singer Lee Jung-hyun has returned to the big screen with “Love, Again,” her first rom-com since her acting debut in 1996.


The film, released on Oct. 17, tells the hilarious story of the eccentric Sun-young (Lee), who demands an elaborate divorce ceremony with Hyun-woo (Kwon Sang-woo) when he asks for a divorce. Things get a bit complicated when Sun-young finds out that her new love interest Sang-chul (Lee Jong-hyuk) is the childhood friend of her ex-husband, however.


“The scenario doesn’t make sense in real life, who would want to go through a ‘divorce ceremony?’” Lee Jung-hyun said during an interview. “But I understood the situation a bit better when I began understanding Sun-young. I think she actually didn’t want a divorce, and just told Hyun-woo that she’ll agree to it only after a ceremony, not expecting him to actually go through with it.”


Although Lee exuded quirkiness and a cheerful energy in her music career, she’s never starred in a romantic comedy before. In fact, many of the projects she worked on were dark and heavy, including the revenge thriller “Alice in Earnestland” (2014) and her debut film “A Petal” (1996), which addressed the horrific 1980 Gwangju massacre.


“Like anyone else, I had a desire to try out various characters. But because I took on heavy roles, producers continued offering me similar characters. ‘Love, Again’ was a really refreshing opportunity for me. I said I would take it as soon as I read the screenplay.”


Perhaps nervous for her first rom-com, filming got off to a rocky start. But Lee said her colleagues helped ease her through with laughs and jokes.


“In the first scene, I was supposed to have a meal at a beef bone soup restaurant. But I was so tense that my hand that was holding the spoon was shaking. Kwon got really surprised, because the image he had about me from my music was like a techno female warrior. Actually, thanks to funny episodes like that, I could film comfortably.”


“Love, Again” was a special film for Lee in a very personal way as well - as fate would have it, the actor was able to find the man of her dreams while preparing for the film and tied the knot this past April.


“I actually really wanted to get married. But I had given up [searching] as I was getting old and had limited opportunities to meet people. It wasn’t as if I could upload my profile onto an online dating service.”


Lee met her husband of five months on a blind date through a mutual friend.


“I got really lucky,” Lee recalled. “I felt like if it was him, I could comfortably continue my acting career. He’s younger than me, and he was really anxious on the first date - it was cute. As it turned out, he and his father were big fans. They had all my CDs at home.”


As a well-known celebrity, keeping the relationship private before marriage was a difficult challenge. Lee had plenty of unexpected encounters with people who recognized her on her dates, but to her relief, no one pried into the matter and just gave her “a knowing look and gave [her] space.”


Children are definitely in her plans too, partially due to the influence of her “Love, Again” co-stars.


“Kang and Lee would upload pictures of taking their kids to the park, and that made me think that it would be nice to have a family of my own. I liked children before, but seeing Kang and Lee so happy made me want to have kids soon.”


When Lee’s not filming, she spends a lot of time at home engaged in some of her favorite hobbies - cooking and watching food channels. Cooking helps her relieve some stress and concentrate, she says. “If I focus on one thing, bad thoughts tend to go away. That’s why we need hobbies. Also there’s nothing that makes me happier than inviting my close colleagues over, cooking up something tasty and chatting.”


Having just wrapped up filming “The Peninsula,” director Yeon Sang-ho’s upcoming sequel to zombie blockbuster “Train to Busan” (2016), Lee’s now taking some time off and making plans for her next steps.


Releasing a new album is an option, Lee revealed.


Fans have been waiting a long time for Lee’s return. Her last single “V” was released in 2013, and it’s been nine years since her last full-length album. Lee is best remembered as a singer for her groundbreaking electronica hits like “Wa” from 1999, when she dressed up in ancient imperial and extra-terrestrial costumes and put on glamorous shows while popularizing many iconic dance moves.


Lee’s hits and music videos have actually been enjoying a resurgence recently, thanks to the popularity of the so-called Online Tapgol Park, a YouTube channel where broadcaster SBS streams music performances from the late 1990s and early 2000s. Being one of the hottest singers of the time, Lee is a recurring face in the channel.


“My husband and colleagues seem to like it, but I actually find them a bit embarrassing. I’m the only one with wings and murmuring alien languages. I think to myself ‘Why did I do that? I had a lot of energy.’”


“I haven’t retired from the music scene yet. I’m always thinking about [coming back]. I plan on sharing good songs with fans if I have the chance.”
