[Interview] Korean-American Actress Jennivere Song Lee 2013/01/20, Source,

This unique man, his sort that we have never seen before and is hard to categorize, is called Kim Jae-wook. In text, his career may seem like that of the typical 'model-turned-pretty-faced-actor' -- he became known to the public through MBC TV series "Coffee Prince" and played a homosexual in film "Antique".
