Actor Jung Seok Won opened up about his relationship with girlfriend and singer Baek Ji Young

Jung didn’t hold back when it came to talking about how he met the singer, who is nine years his senior, over a steak dinner during the most recent recording of MBC Every1’s ‘Jung Bo Suk’s Chungdam-dong One o’ Clock A.M.’

Haha revealed that love was his biggest worry these days after attending the wedding of his close friend, Park Geun Shik.

A few days earlier, Haha sat down with enews and discussed his renewed musical activities with former Z-Kiri member Taw from 2001.

He also shared some of his inner thoughts and worries during the interview. Haha and Taw’s new album Acoustic Tuning Time will be released on March 22 and both are looking to stay busy with musical activities related to the album release.

“I was first introduced to Baek Ji Young over drinks by an old acquaintance of mine whom I knew since my days as a struggling actor, and it was love at first sight,” revealed the actor shyly.

Jung continued, “Because I was a rookie actor at the time and had never been drinking with a celebrity before, I thought I had to get my hair and makeup done for the gathering,” revealing his innocent charm and drawing laughter on set.

The actor also revealed, “During my stuntman days at action school, I was once scolded by a senior and dragged out by my colleagues. That’s when I became determined to become the best action star.”

Viewers can look forward to seeing more sides to the charming actor on this episode, which will air on September 5 at 12:10 a.m.

Recently, however, a photo from Park Geun Shik’s wedding surfaced in an online community forum and attracted a lot of buzz thanks to the hilarious poses by Haha and his MBC Infinity Challenge members.

Haha said, “After watching Geun Shik’s wedding, love and marriage have become my two biggest concerns these days. That’s because Geun Shik was my closest friend.”

Of course, love might have to wait just awhile longer since Haha recently resumed his musical activities with Taw.

Haha said, “Right now I have to focus on my music roots. Taw hyung and I will be concentrating on music for the foreseeable future. Just thinking about our upcoming performance together makes my heart flutter and makes me happy.”

He added, “That’s not to say that I’m not seeing anyone at the moment. If there is an opportunity [to meet someone], it will happen.”

Haha released a 14 track full-length album with former Z-Kiri member Taw. Listeners will be able to experience Haha’s new music through their title song The Person by My Side.
