It’s been a long time since KWAVE visited him. Leading a busy life, he was still filled with passion for acting. Let us look in to filming site as we visited him during his short break.
How are you doing after <Healer>?
I’m resting as I get ready for my next piece. Personally, I think I was more at ease when shooting <Healer>. Now, I’m much more busy due to musical <Those Days> tours.
You seem to be always working. Wanting to give you a rest, we created ‘Ji Chang Wook’s Break’ as a concept. How do you usually enjoy your time off?
Rather than do something grand for enjoyment, I think meeting my friends and people I like is way to enjoy my vacation.
Also, I like sports and enjoy it. Since the weather is so nice out, I enjoy playing soccer and basketball. Sometimes I walk around the track at Hangang River.
We heard that you’re on your tour for musical <Those Days>. Can you give a brief summary and explanation of your character and the musical?
First, the musical <Those Days> is about body guards at the Blue House, and it’s an episode about love and friendship between the body guards.
The role I take from <Those Days> are ‘Kang Moo Young’. He’s a man with free and pure sensitivity and is quite playful.
Working on both musical and drama, wasn’t it tiring?
I was already working on the musical before drama. There were difficulty matching schedules between drama and musical, but fortunately, I was able to successfully complete both drama and musical.
Is there any special reason why you made a challenge in musical?
In a way, I started the musical before any program on TV. I always had interest of musical ever since I was young. The fact that I can act and sing in a musical made a huge impression on me, and I also love both genres.
What are plans for rest of year 2015.
Well, I have fan meeting planned and have last musical performance at Jejudo. I’m planning on finishing all of them in success and with all my heart. After the last musical performance, I will be making a trip to overseas for a photo shoot.
