Lee Bo-Young sees Ji Sung as a dedicated man

As per All K-Pop in 2014, a year after their marriage, Lee Bo-Young appeared on SBS' Healing Camp and revealed how their love story began.

She said, "I did not like my husband, Ji Sung, at first so I turned down his confession. While I was meeting with my friends, Ji Sung said he would join and, on that day, he wrote a note and put it in my bag. 'I like you' was written on it."

She continued, "I always thought I could not be with another celebrity, so I had a fantasy of being with an ordinary person more than a celebrity. I told him I would turn him down because he was a celebrity to which he said, 'Then I will give up acting.' I was tricked," making everyone laugh as Ji Sung has continued to be an actor.

"Ji Sung asked me out for three months and I treated him badly. I pushed him away, saying I didn't like him,” she said apologetically.

She also shared how Ji Sung's proposal went. "I received a proposal in Spain. Before our wedding, we left for a photoshoot in Spain. We were doing the shoot in front of the hotel we were staying at when a huge amplifier appeared during our break and Ji Sung came out with a microphone to read me a letter. I was about to grow teary from listening to the letter, but at that moment, he began to sing and my tears went away. A lot of people were watching from the hotel. At that time, Ji Sung sang a song I liked, Elton John's Your Song."

She also revealed that she didn't have to do any of the preparations for their wedding. From designing to everything else, Ji Sung did everything and she was “very grateful.”

Ji Sung’s realizations as a husband and father

As per Soompi, Ji Sung shared some insights into his life with his family during the premiere episode of tvN’s ‘RUN’, January last year.

During his conversation with Kang Ki Young, the topic went to families, and Ji Sung says he sees his family as a gift from God. “The greatest gift,” he said.

He also shared how he stopped his bad habits for his family. “At some point, I realized that my drinking wasn’t any help to myself or my family,” he said. “There was a time in my life that was so difficult I could only get through it by gaining strength from alcohol. Still, it was all futile. But now I have a wife and children, so I gain courage. I want to be with my wife for longer and I want to be healthy when I’m standing next to my children at their weddings and watching over them. A father has to be healthy to do things for his family.”

Also, during the said program Ji Sung was running with “Anna” and “Elsa” from ‘Frozen’ on his name tag. “Ji Yoo (their daughter) likes these characters,” he explained. “They’re going to give me strength.”

“The characters that my daughter loves give me strength!’ I run while thinking of my daughter and my wife,” Ji Sung said.

Ji Sung sweet gestures towards Lee Bo-Young

According to Soompi on June 7, Lee Bo-Young’s agency J Wide-Company shared photos of the actress with a food truck and coffee truck sent by her husband on the set of her current drama Mine.

The agency said, “Last weekend! Actor Ji Sung sent a steak truck and coffee truck to the set of actress Lee Bo Young’s tvN drama Mine.”

The banners on the steak truck read, “I am enthusiastically cheering on Lee Bo Young, the most lovable actress in the world, along with the Mine team,” and, “Everyone! Take good care of your health until the end and gain strength.”

On the coffee truck banner, Ji Sung wrote, “Thank you for loving and cherishing our Bo Young a lot.”

Both nailed their roles on their last drama series—Jisung on the tvN drama Devil Judge, which ended in August; and Lee Bo-young on Mine, which ended in June.
