Ji Chang Wook is really taking his time with his acting career in 2015 after finishing up K-drama Healer in the early part of the year. He’s always given me the impression of being a scrappy go-getter, someone willing to take on projects to keep building his resume. I’d say he’s finally arrived with the one-two success of Empress Ki and Healer, the former being a Pan-Asia ratings hit and the other bringing him additional popularity from the cult favorite drama. I thought he would have another acting project lined up by now because he’s also one of those ’87ers who have to enlist in the army next year.
If he’s just biding him time waiting for a promising project then by all means do so, so many K-dramas this year have been busts it’s better to be picky than waste three months on a dud. He was in Los Angeles last month in early June for entertainment activities, and as part of that trip shot a pictorial for Korea One that has now been released. I love it, even with the Pepto Bismol pink wall he’s repeatedly posing in front of, LOL, the non pink wall pics really show off his great style in front of a recognizable urban LA backdrop.
