When he was asked about how people praise him for his looks, the actor responded jokingly with I like (how they give praises) because first of all, I really like receiving them. I think Ill still like receiving it in the future.
Ahn Jae Hyun went on saying: I think Im not a very handsome person but I think Im nice to look at. I think the really handsome people are Kang Dong Won, Won Bin, Hyun Bin, Cha Seung Won and a lot of other senior actors. Honestly, when I first debuted, a lot of people told me that I should get plastic surgery. They told me to get a double eyelid surgery and to get my nose done as well. Ive been repeatedly told to do that for 5-6 years but lately, I dont hear it anymore.
On his two years as part of the reserve forces (meaning he finished his military service two years ago), Ahn Jae Hyun shared, “I completed my military service early. At the time of my enlistment, I really didn’t have a lot of work [coming in]. I was a part of public services due to my eye condition. Currently, there are sponges in both of my eyes. At a certain point, I wasn’t able to see people because the brightness of light was too strong, so I had surgery during my second year of high school. The surgery was on July 1, the day of my birthday. I couldn’t even take my final exams and was bedridden for about two months.”
The model-actor added, “Even now, I get regular checkups once a month. I wear special lenses on a daily basis, so I feel pressured by action scenes. During filming for ‘You’re All Surrounded,’ there was a time when I got hit in the eye. Many thoughts passed through my mind during those 10 seconds that followed. Fortunately, I was okay so I didn’t go to the hospital.”
