Would you believe this photo got taken a couple of years ago? You cannot guess his age here. Does he have 20 something? Or 40 something on this picture?

Another way you can determine his age in the photo is by looking at his weight. Jung was a skinny teenager. He looked like he borrowed his clothes from his older brother. But that is just fine. People loved him even then. You have to remember, he worked as a model, and models are usually skinny.

Working as a model, Jung knows how to play with the camera. And he uses his smile to do it. He can adjust to any situation and flash a subtle or ear to ear smile. It is an underrated talent, and not many can do it.
7. Fashion Model
You can easily notice his transition into modeling and entering the world of fashion. He looks much more dressed up and stylish, right? But that happens when you have someone taking care of your looks.
