Jung Woo Sung added, "He's super popular here. It's incredible. At least one person asks him for a photo together every five steps he takes." 

While the outdoor interview went on, many fans gathered around them as well that it even became difficult to continue the interview. 

After moving to a different area for the interview, Jung Woo Sung said, "Earlier when Jung Jae was busy taking photos with fans on the street, I just stood around him." 

He continued, "This one little girl who looked like she was about nine kept looking at me with a shy smile. Then, she asked whether I was the guy from 'Squid Game'. All adults are able to tell who Lee Jung Jae is, but I think she got confused for a bit." 

He went on, "I told her that I was his friend, and she was like, 'Please let me meet him!' A little moment later, Lee Jung Jae came and I introduced him to her. She told Lee Jung Jae that she loves him. It made my heart warm."
