Actress Lee Min Jung recently opened up about her surprising relationships during an appearance onKBS 2TV’s “Entertainment Relay – Guerilla Date.”
On January 1st, she revealed that she has gotten closer with 2AM’s Seulong after he chose her as his ideal woman, and even chose him as the person she sends texts to the most. She then introducedBrown Eyed Soul’s Jung Yeob as a close friend she often goes out drinking with, impressing many with her close ties to the music industry.
When asked about whether she knew she’d become the top star she is now, she replied, “I never knew I would become a top star. But you do have to become a ’star’ in order to film in projects you want. My family is always careful with me, and although they have positive views, there’s a lot of concerns.”
At the mention of her sweeping various rookie awards at the year-end awards ceremony in 2010, she replied, “Actor Um Tae Woong told me, ‘You must be happy, why don’t you give me one?’”
Lee Min Jung’s segment was concluded with her New Year wish, in which she stated, “I’d like for my new projects to achieve great results and to hopefully meet my life partner. I want to take on stronger and more depressing roles this year. It’d be great if I could star in a movie like ‘Once.’”

During a recent recording of tvN ‘E NEWS Behind Star’, actress Lee Min Jung, who is currently receiving explosive interest in Korea for her acting and CF deals, talked about hardships during her debut days.
“When I first debuted, the public response was little and showed no interest, and I thought of quitting my acting career. But ever since my role in ‘Boys Over Flowers‘, I obtained a lot of strength from the good public response,” expressed Lee Min Jung.
The actress also addressed her later-than-average debut in the acting world. “I first challenged myself with acting at 23 through a theater play, and at 25, I contracted with an entertainment company and began my broadcasting activites. After walking a different path to start my acting career, I had a comparatively late debut when compared to others.”
During the interview, Lee Min Jung shared a story about getting shouted at by a director during her debut days. “I couldn’t act to my director’s satisfaction, and he ended up shouting at me very loudly during the middle of filming. When I went home that day, I cried a lot.”
She has certainly come a long way to get to where she is now, but given her recent rise to prominence and fresh look, I don’t think many realize that she will be 28 in a couple months.
