Hong Jong-hyun is a Korean name; the family name is Hong.
Hong Jong-hyun (hangul: 홍종현; born February 2, 1990) is a South Korean actor.
Hong began his entertainment career in 2007 as a professional model.
He made his acting debut in 2008, appearing in the sitcom Vampire Idol (2011), followed by supporting roles in Jeon Woo-chi (2012) and Dating Agency: Cyrano (2013).
In 2014, Hong was cast in his first leading role in the cable series Her Lovely Heels, followed by the melodrama Mama.
In 2014, he joined the fourth season of reality show We Got Married, pairing up with popular Girl’s Day member, Yura.
Hong next starred in the 2015 romantic comedy film Enemies In-Law.
Earlier this year in January, Hong Jong Hyun was caught up in a dating rumor with Nana when a local media source reported that the two have been dating for about seven months
. While both sides denied that they were dating, the rumor with Nana caused more controversy than expected because, at that time, Hong Jong Hyun was filming “We Got Married” with Girl’s Day‘s Yura.
Although the show is a “virtual reality” show, pairing up two people in a fake marriage, it is necessary for the cast to maintain the projection that there is possibility for a real relationship that goes beyond the make-believe.
If one of the “spouses” get caught up in a dating rumor with someone else, the fragile believability of the show is broken.

Ahead of the movie premiere for Meet the In-Laws 2, Hong Jong Hyun held an interview at a cafe in Samcheong-dong on April 27, where he was asked about the dating rumors with Nana while he was filming MBC′s We Got Married.
He answered, “I didn’t know when the articles came out. I was in the middle of filming in Singapore, so I didn′t know.”
“I was with my location manager at the time, and when we later found out that an article like that came out, we were shocked,” said Hong Jong Hyun. “But I knew ultimately, it wasn’t true, so I thought, ′Ah…I have to say this isn′t real,′ so I asked my manager to take care of it and then didn’t give it much thought.
I got on the plane and fell asleep. I wasn’t interested and I think I really didn’t know how serious it was.”
“When I returned to Korea, it was a huge mess. My agency was frustrated because they couldn’t get in direct contact with me, and I was just like, ′Is this a big deal?′” said Hong Jong Hyun. “I even wondered if people were this interested in me. It was the first time since my debut that I received so much attention that I was a bit caught off guard.”
“Of course, after all of that, I cleared up all the misunderstandings. I met with the PD of We Got Married and told her personally. I also explained it to Yura too. It wasn′t something that I created, but I was very apologetic and sorry that this had to happen,” explained Hong Jong Hyun.
“It′s the same with Yura and Nana, but I only see them as friends that I contact once in awhile. They’re good friends.”
When asked if he ever thought about going public with a relationship, Hong Jong Hyun replied, “I don’t know when, but as people commonly say, when I find the person that I want to marry, I want to date publicly. Before we get married, I want to comfortably date with my girlfriend.”
Then letting out a laugh, Hong Jong Hyun added, “But of course, I don’t know when that will be.”
His Ideal type of woman
“Hong Jong Hyun Takes a Bubble Bath and Describes His Ideal Type.
In a interview the model turned actor shared about his ideal type, “My ideal type? Someone who is one of a kind in that they are charming [but] not in an overt way.””
Fans think that Hong Jong-hyun is cute and Handsome .
Good actor although he was a new faces that people wanted to see in a lead role.
People can not deny he has a really gorgeous looks and sexy deep voice but he needs some improvement for his acting skills. He could not make role in Her Lovely Heels to be as charming as it suppose to be but his handsome face help a lot, thanks lord!
But there is still some hope for him though because he may not have a good acting skill but he is not that sucks. Still looking forward if anyone will give him a chance and hands him a major role.
