Visitors to Cheongju City in Korea can now get to see Ji Chang Wook! Not in the flesh, but a bronze statue of him.
Many Korean dramas have been filmed at Suam Village (Suam-gol / 수암골) in Cheongju, and the local government has decided to place several statues of characters from these dramas around the district as photo zones. The statues will allow visitors to recall scenes from the drama and hopefully draw more tourists to the area.
“Healer” was one of the dramas that were filmed here, so a bronze statue shaped in the likeness of Ji Chang Wook in “Healer” can be found in the district. Statues of actor So Ji Sub from the 2009 drama “Cain and Abel”, and Gu Hye Sun and Ji Jin Hee from the 2012 drama “Take Care of Us, Captain” have also been erected in the same area.
