Jung found widespread fame in Kim Sung-soo's 1997 film Beat, in which he played a high school student who becomes caught up in gang life against his will. Since this film, he became known as one of Korea's top commercial stars. In the subsequent years he portrayed a young boxer in Our Sunny Days, a naval lieutenant in Phantom the Submarine, and a marathoner in Love.
In 2001, Jung took on one of his most high-profile roles in Kim Sung-soo's epic blockbuster Musa. Playing a long-haired slave, he acted opposite Chinese superstar Zhang Ziyi and recieved wide exposure abroad as well as in Korea. After spending time in 2002 directing a series of music videos and appearing in a large number of commercials, Jung took on the eccentric lead role in Mutt Boy, the fifth film by director Kwak Kyung-taek (Friend, Champion).
Jung's next two roles would be in highly romantic roles that played off his established screen image. In the box office hit A Moment To Remember, he plays a construction worker who marries the daughter of a rich family, and in the Netherlands-set Daisy, he plays a hired assassin who falls in love with a street artist played by Jeon Ji-hyun. Upcoming for 2006 is a big-budget martial arts film The Restless (working title).
