His first time playing a baddie

His first time playing a baddie

SINGAPORE - At 40, South Korean actor Jung Woo Sung still receives marriage proposals from diehard fans.

The suave 1.86m-tall bachelor, who was in town last yesterday to promote his latest thriller Cold Eyes, smiled and said in Korean through a translator: "From time to time, I receive a fax in my office from fans, which says: 'I've got approval from my parents and friends. Let's get married!'

"I don't have any stalker fans but this happens sometimes."

In addition to still being a chick magnet, Jung cuts a good figure for his age and even shows off his six-pack abs in a brief scene in the action movie.

He said: "I don't specially train my body for a particular role, but I work out regularly to keep fit. So, when there is a chance in any roles for me to show off my body, I am not shy to do so."

Jung plays James, the cold-hearted leader of an armed criminal organisation in Cold Eyes, which opens here on Sept 5.

He has to escape the Korean Police Forces Special Crime Department when his teammates are arrested after a crime bust and he goes on the run.

The movie also stars K-pop boy band 2PM member Lee Junho and Korean actress Han Hyo Joo, who both portray young police officers from the special unit tasked to track James down.
