Ji Chang Wook ~ 지창욱

Okay, so in keeping with my schedule here is my first post of the week.

Ji Chang Wook (지창욱)

Well, this is Ji Chang Wook, he’s a new actor in Korean dramas. Just came around since 2008 I believe. I remember seeing him in Hero with Lee Jun Ki, but never paid him any attention until Warrior Baek Dong Soo in which I was still didn’t like him because I liked Yoo Seung Ho in his role. And it’s so funny that in that drama the younger versions of the main characters also played the younger versions of Lee Jun Ki from Time Between Dog and Wolf and Iljimae. And then Ji Chang Wook plays as a reporter in Hero with Lee Jun Ki.

But the thing is this man’s talent has really shown in the past dramas he’s been in starting with Warrior Baek Dong Soo, (there’s actually a drama he starred in after Hero, but I haven’t watched it just yet) and even though I didn’t care for the character too much it was played exceedingly well by Ji Chang Wook. Then there was Bachelor’s Vegetable Store. I thought he might have the same feel as in Warrior Baek Dong Soo but he brought this character to life and made me like him. And now he’s in Five Finger with Joon Ji Hoo and I gotta say, the young actors did a great job but he kept it going because as much as I loved him in Bachelor’s Vegetable Store, I really, really dislike him in Five Fingers as In Ha much as I disliked the younger actor playing In Ha. So anyways, I think he is definitely someone who will be a great actor in Korean dramas in the future so be on the look out for his next role after Five Fingers.
