What could be the reason why Ji Chang Wook chose “Healer” as his next project?
After gaining recognition for his acting skills as Emperor Ta Hwan in MBC’s “Empress Ki”, Ji Chang Wook who is walking on his path as an actor in his twenties is making a return through “Healer”.
The code name of his character Seo Jung Hu, who is the legendary Healer and a top-class night messenger, is an important keyword in the drama.

Ji Chang Wook said, “I will be able to show action scenes through an unusual job as a night messenger, and I was amazed by the writing ability of writer Song Ji Na. It was so interesting till the point that I immediately called to tell her that the script was very interesting once I saw it.”
“There are many action scenes and it is difficult to get used to using the wire in action scenes. Although there are many tiring scenes where I have to jump around rooftops the whole day, the difficulty makes me more ambitious and I find it enjoyable. I am looking forward to this because of the quality of the drama and also the fact that audiences will find this drama interesting due to the many different attractions the drama has to offer. I hope that ‘Healer’ will be able to offer healing (to audiences),” he added.

He, who said that the secret to acting is “to read the script over and over again”, is drawing attention for what kind of brilliance he will deliver through his amount and quality of hardwork put into this drama.
