Jung Hye-young chosen as beauty icon
Actress Jung Hye-young has been selected as a beauty icon of the month for November by the fashion magazine Elle, according to her agency YG Entertainment yesterday.
Elle reportedly made the decision not only because of Jung’s style, but also because of her “inner beauty,” as she is known to dedicate significant time to helping people in need.
“It is not easy to keep my life in order as I raise children and work at the same time,” she said in the interview.
“I just try to put forth the best effort every time and be thankful for my life.”
She also talked about her schedule and how she maintains her beauty. Jung says she works out in the mornings and then, after sending her children to school, she studies the violin or goes to a pottery-making class.
“It is important to focus on the basics,” she said, adding that she watches what she eats and uses a personal trainer.
“It is also important to have a role model that gives inspiration and positive energy.”
Jung, who is married to Sean Noh of the hip hop group Jinusean, is well-known for giving generously to social causes and charities.
She also volunteered her time and donated money to celebrate herself and her husband’s ninth wedding anniversary, which was earlier this month.
Jung gave her 100 million won salary for the movie “Man on the Edge” to Severance Hospital in May to help patients suffering from rare diseases.
