Celebrity Travel: Go away with Jessica Jung

By Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

A: Ramen noodles on a long-haul flight. Guilty as charged.

Q: What kind of research do you do before you go away on a trip?

A: When it comes to visiting a new city, my priorities are finding the best restaurants and the best shopping.

Q: What kind of places do you like to visit for fun?

A: I love beaches during our winter months and skiing during our summer months. The grass is always greener on the other side.


Q: Do you speak any foreign languages? And in the same train of thought, do you pick up new languages easily?

A: I speak Korean and English fluently and I’m a student of Mandarin. I wouldn’t say I’m good at picking up languages, but I’ve been told that my pronunciation is rather accurate.
