Star Obsession: Ji Chang-wook

Ji Chang Wook on Grazia

I’ll take that.

As I review his list of entertainment accomplishments, I am now seeing that he was in many dramas that I had seen before. I just wasn’t very impressed. I suppose retrospectively now, I can see that I was drawn to the dramas — though they weren’t memorable. And that magnet might well have been Ji Chang-wook. His acting, if I remember was actually quite good. But it wasn’t until the epic historical drama Empress Ki that I took notice of him. If the drama had ended at episode 20, I think I would have continue to overlook this talented actor. Seeing the transformation of his character from a spineless and actually annoying royal prince to a powerful King (albeit still a little annoying) made his character one of the most complex and interesting on the show. And now I wonder if I should go back and rewatch the dramas he was in before, I think I will view him as an actor differently now and watch for those subtle emotions he is able to evoke in Healer and Empress Ki. That is I think his signature.
