30 year-old Yun Jung Hoon (Yeon Jeong Hun) is probably most famous for marrying the beautiful actress, Ha Ga In. Being an actor seem to be in his roots as his father is veteran actor Yun Kyu Jin. The very first time I saw Yun Jung Hoon was in the movie Daddy Long Legs where he acted opposite Ha Ji Won. I thought he looked more Chinese than Korean.
With a string of dramas under his belt, Yun Jun Hoon returns to his acting career after military service in the new drama East of Eden. He did not rush back to work after military but waited 6 months for the right role to come his way.
In East of Eden he plays Dong-wook, the younger brother of the main character Dong-cheol (Song Seung-hun). Coming from a family who is familiar with the entertainment business, Yun consults his parents and wife before accepting any projects. His mother used to manage his father’s career and helped her husband select scripts. The role in East of Eden comes highly recommended by his father who has worked with writer Na Yeon-sook many times.
Yun Jung hoon signed on with Rain‘s entertainment company, J. Tune Entertainment earlier this year.
