All the Korean Drama Lovers would love him !! Yea, Our Ji Chang-Wook, the man with a most pretty smile.
These are the 4 Best Ji chang wook dramas that made him a versatile and Top Actor in all over Asia!
Ji Chang Wook acted as Toghon Temür, a weak Emperor of the Mongol Empire. His character portrayal might have seemed like a weak, but his acting was the strong as certainly a newcomer who could pull a string with a drama Queen-like Ha Ji-Won. Why I say him as a newcomer is, despite he acted in a few Korean dramas before, this drama has made him a well-known actor in/outside South Korea. There is no chance that he would take up such a role in the future as after watching the action thriller like “The K2”, his fans would never like him taking such a weak portrayal.
The series is about Gi Seungnyang, a Goryeo-born woman who pretended as a man and finally ascends to power in spite of the restrictions on the class system! Later, She became Empress Ki of the Yuan dynasty by marrying the Emperor of the Mongol Empire, Toghon Temür, a weak, puppet king, yet determined to win Seungnyang from her first love, Wang Yu. Empress Ki highlights her political ambitions, and how she is torn between the love she had for the King of Goryeo, Wang Yu, and the Emperor of the Yuan Dynasty.
Ji chang-wook acted as Noh Ji-wook, a short-tempered prosecutor who solves a mysterious psychopath case.
All the Korean Drama Lovers would have known this couple’s Onscreen Chemistry. Till now, Nam Ji-hyun is considered as the best onscreen pair for Ji Chang-Wook. All the Behind the Scenes videos of this drama is the best BTS video till now. Even at the rehearsal of Deep Kissing scene, you can find how Chang-Wook comforted her, well, that would be what all actresses need, “A COMFORT ZONE”.And Of Course, we all know that Korean actors are great in it.
The series is about Noh Ji-wook, a prosecutor, and Eun Bong-hee a prosecutor trainee, and how they work together to solve a mysterious case that involved Bong-hee as a suspect!
Further, it pictures how Bong-hee finally wins Noh Ji-wook who had resentment for love because of his previous relationship. In addition, it portrays how they both are connected by a previous accident even before their relationship started!
This is a very usual drama ,usual plot with super romantic scenes.
The K2 is the most Stylish Drama of Ji Chang-wook. If you have not watched this drama, then just see the scene when Je-ha saves Yoo-Jin and the rain scene.
Kim Je-ha (played by ji chang wook) is a former mercenary soldier and While on duty in Iraq, he gets framed wrongly for the murder of his lover Raniya, a civilian of Iraq. As a result, he has to run away from Iraq and becomes a fugitive.
Later, He returns to South Korea and he gets an offer to work as a bodyguard for JSS Security Company which is owned by Choi Yoo-jin, wife of the presidential candidate, Jang Se-joon. He accepts the offer as another presidential candidate is Park Kwan-soo, the one who killed his lover and gets him Framed. As Choi Yoo-jin promised him to help in taking his revenge, he became one of the bodyguards of the famous JSS Security Company!
When Je-ha is assigned to guard An-na, Jang Se-joon’s hidden daughter, the love starts between Je-ha and An-na! Finally, Je-ha determined to protect his love An-na from his partner Yoo-jin who always wanted her stepdaughter to die. Je-ha’s deep concern for An-na creates a conflict between his and his ally, Yoo-jin.
If you can see, even the Yoo-jin and Je-ha would be great together.
