Happy 29th Birthday to Ji Chang Wook!

Today is 5 July.  A great day for various reasons, but the most important reason (and why we launched this little website exactly one year ago) is that it is also Ji Chang Wook’s birthday!  Chukkahamnida!

Where’s my cake? Why is there no cake on the table?!?

Chang-wook, there will be cake. Trust me on this!

It has been quite an interesting and exciting 12 months for Ji Chang Wook, with projects such as the “Healer” drama gaining great international success, and the reboot of “The Days” musical playing to sell-out crowds across Korea.  In addition to travelling all over the world for various endorsements and other events, we were treated to a plethora of photoshoots and interviews (with us happily spending a good chunk of money on all those magazines), not to mention we both had the opportunity to see Ji Chang Wook live in person at his fan meetings and other events as well.

And now with a potential (but still not confirmed!) first leading role in the upcoming movie “Fabricated City,” we see nothing but great things coming his way.  So we here at The Kitchen send on our birthday greetings and well-wishes to the man himself.  With so many great opportunities on the horizon, we cannot wait to see what Ji Chang Wook has in store for his fans in the months ahead.

I am SO happy there is cake!!!

And in honour of the 1st anniversary of the launch of Ji Chang Wook’s Kitchen, we are deeply thankful to our many readers for their support and kind words over the past 12 months.  We still have a quite a few things up our sleeves, so stay tuned.  But for now…


Note: Before you flood the comments saying that we’ve posted the wrong age for him, we adhere to the Korean calendar in calculating his birthday, as compared to the Gregorian calendar, which would make him 28 years old today.  (The Korean tradition is to count the time that a baby spends in the womb towards their actual age; therefore upon birth, a person is already considered a year old.)
