The actor received a very special gift from none other than BLACKPINK's Jennie. The popular idol gifted Lee Jung Jae her limited edition eyewear collection in collaboration with the Korean brand Gentle Monster.
Lee Jung Jae couldn't hide his excitement as he showed off the gift's whimsical lavender box and flower bouquet. Jennie also wrote a short message which read, "To Lee Jung Jae sunbaenim."
He even tried on a sleek pair of sunglasses towards the end of the video.
Apparently, Jennie's mom is a big fan of the award-winning actor. In an episode of Knowing Brothers, it was revealed that Jennie was named after Jae Hee, Lee Jung Jae's character in the 1995 drama Sandglass. It turns out, Lee Jung Jae is also a Blink!
