Ji Chang-wook is expected to give off unexpected charms and present opposite moments in “If You Wish Upon Me”.
KBS 2TV’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “If You Wish Upon Me” (directed by Kim Yong-wan/written by Jo Ryeong-soo/production invested by A&E Networks Korea/produced by Climax Studios), which is scheduled to air at 9:50 PM on August 10th, has been inspired by a real-life foundation in Netherlands. It is a healing drama revolving around a young man who is endangered at the end of his life. He enters a hospice hospital on the order of community service and listens to the last wishes of people at the end of their lives in a bright and cheerful way through various episodes.
Ji Chang-wook plays the role of Yoon Gyeo-re, who is barely enduring the present without motivation and will for life. Yoon Gyeo-re, who went through an orphanage, a juvenile detention center and a prison, starts volunteering at a hospice hospital by accident, meets “Team Genie” and faces an inflection point in his life.
In addition, in the photos released on July 28th, Ji Chang-wook shows off contrasting charms via different stylings. In one still, he can be seen wearing a worn-out training suit and a stretched T-shirt, while holding a bag as big as his body. However, in the stills that follow, Ji Chang-wook boasts a simple smile while remaining wary of his surroundings, raising questions about the meaning behind his smile and the contents of the bag he holds onto with all his might.
In another photo, Ji Chang-wook is wearing an all-black suit that fits his body perfectly, exuding a chic charisma and a charm 180 degrees different from the previously revealed appearance. The actor was also knocking on the bonnet of a car in a parking lot, arousing curiosity about the sorts of transactions his character was doing.
Speaking about Ji Chang-wook, the production team of “If You Wish Upon Me” said, “Ji Chang-wook paid a lot of attention to styling to highlight the circumstances of his character in the K-drama, Yoon Gyeo-ree. Moreover, his changes in outfits also show a complex yet subtle emotional line that adjusts in accordance with Yoo Gyeo-ree’s situations. You can look forward to Ji Chang-wook’s charms, which will be revealed through the main broadcast.”
”If You Wish Upon Me” is scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, August 10th at 9:50 PM (KST) on KBS2 as well as the OTT platform Viu.
