His mainstream popularity further increased when he was cast as one of the main characters of Reply 1994, a cable drama about a group of young students from different regions in Korea living together in a boarding house while going to college in 1990s Seoul.This was followed by a role in arthouse spy movie Red Family, produced by Kim Ki-duk.
Jung Woo next stars in the 2014 musical biopic C'est si bon. Set in the eponymous live music cafe in Mugyo-dong, downtown Seoul, the film depicts the formation of legendary folk music group Twin Folio, which was active from the 1960s to 80s.
