Korean actress Jun Ji Hyun from the popular Korean drama My Love from the Star was reportedly so busy with filming that her husband, Choi Jun Hyuk, had to play basketball alone to pass time.
Ji Hyun rose to fame after her stellar performance in the memorable Korean movie My Sassy Girl in 2001. She is currently enjoying a second wave of popularity from her most recent drama outing, My Love from the Star, which became so popular in Asia that it brought her career to another peak.
She married high-flyer banker Choi Joon Hyuk in 2012, who is tagged with a total net worth of NT1.1 billion (S$45.9 million). His mother and maternal grandmother are renowned fashion designers, while his father is a CEO in the steel industry.
Ji Hyun has always been protective of her husband’s privacy, and tries to him keep out of the media spotlight. But reporters still found out a few details of his daily life: he goes to work at 7am and returns home at 5pm.
Two years ago, Ji Hyun revealed that when she is not busy filming, she would cook for her husband every day. She even went for cooking classes and picked up tips from her mother to whip up his favourite dishes.
