Choo Ja-hyun revealed her strong affection for her husband Woo Hyo-gwang.

On the 18th, I met Choo Ja-hyun, the protagonist of the movie 'While You Were Sleeping', at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Seoul.

'While You Were Sleeping' is a mystery romance that traces the suspicious activities of the ever-caring husband after the misfortune of the wife's selective memory loss befalls a happy couple of three years. Choo Ja-hyun played the role of Deok-hee, who had a smooth work and family life, but suffers from selective amnesia due to a car accident.

As it was her first Korean movie in a long time, what kind of words of encouragement did her husband Woo Hyo-kwang give to Choo Ja-hyun? Choo Ja-hyun said, "I don't often tell people around me, including Hyo-gwang, about what kind of work I'm working on. Even at my company, if I try to put out promotional material saying that I'm in a certain work, they don't let me do it. I don't know if it's because I'm special, but I'm very timid and that's the case. Hyo-gwang. I only find out when a work is broadcast or released. This movie was also filmed during the Corona period. It was filmed when Hyokwang couldn't come to Korea for a year and a half due to the Corona virus. He didn't even know what I was doing. “That’s it,” he said, laughing. He continued, “I cried a lot when I saw it this time.”

Choo Ja-hyun, who once said she did not believe in people or love, said she came to believe in love after dating Woo Hyo-gwang, getting married, and starting a family. When asked if there was a special reason why that happened, Choo Ja-hyun smiled shyly and said, "You may not like it, but every moment." She continued, "My drama comeback was JTBC's 'Beautiful World'. The husband in the drama is Park Hee-sun's older brother. He is close to me and the older brother I like. At the production presentation, she said, 'My drama husband and my real-life husband are both good people,' and 'I am very blessed.' “I said,” he said. He also said, "I didn't act with Hyo-gwang in mind in this movie. Actor Lee Moo-saeng was great. I acted solely looking at actor Lee Moo-saeng's eyes and fell in love with him," and added, "I didn't have an affair. Fortunately, that friend is also a married man." It exploded.

Previously, there were rumors that Woo Hyo-kwang was caught up in suspicions of having an affair. However, Choo Ja-hyun said, "There are many twists and turns in life. There are times when your mentality goes out without you even realizing it. No one can live with a sober mind, right? Anyone can make mistakes. When I drink, I do more strange things than my husband. I can't say anything. “I guess there’s an armpit that’s there. I just didn’t collapse. I thought, ‘This must be a difficult year for you,’” he said calmly. He continued, "Hyo-gwang has a lot of cuteness. He has a lot of close sisters around him and he kisses a lot of close brothers. I was misunderstood a lot. I am a strong-minded person, but my husband is a soft-hearted person, so he was very surprised. At times like that, I was 2. Because he is older, he talks to me like an older sister. He is my husband, but his life is not just his. When you go through something like that, you become stronger. I think it is the process of becoming a good father and a good middle-aged man. It was a good whipping. “It is,” he said.

‘While You Were Sleeping’ will be released on the 20th.
