Lotte Duty Free’s “7 First Kisses” web drama series has been very well-received by the public, with over 30 million views of the first 3 episodes over a 12-day reporting period (ending 14 December 2016). This apparently is the record for the shortest period of time of Korean web drama views recorded after the 7FK teaser video was released on 28 November. But today (15 December) was finally Ji Chang Wook’s turn, as his episode entitled “Till the End of the World” aired today on Lotte Duty Free’s various media channels.
So in case you’ve been hiding from the world for the past few months, here’s the scoop: Lotte Duty Free has marketed this long-form CF as a “blockbuster romance drama” that introduces seven glamorous Hallyu actors. Choi Ji Woo is the shopaholic fairy who grants wishes for the heroine Min Soo Jin (played by rookie actress Lee Cho Hee), a 25-year-old single Lotte Duty Free shop employee. Other Korean Wave stars such as Lee Min Ho, Lee Joon Gi, Park Ha Jin, Ji Chang Wook, Lee Jong Suk, 2PM’s Ok Tacyeon and EXO’s Kai are ‘starring’ in segments presenting various genres from melo to fantasy, thriller to action. Each segment has been written as a tongue-in-cheek homage to each star’s prior acting works; hence, Ji Chang Wook’s episode is a blatant take-off on his most recent action dramas of “Healer” and “The K2.”
Now that Ji Chang Wook’s segment has been released, the remaining 4 episodes featuring the remaining Korean Wave stars are all waiting for their broadcast. And as we previously mentioned earlier this week, the full audio track and music video produced for the OST song entitled “Kissing You” sung by Ji Chang Wook will be released at the end of December 2016.
Forthcoming episodes of “7 First Kisses” will be streamed live through Lotte Duty Free’s Naver TVCast and YouTube channels every Monday and Thursday at 10:00am Korea time. In case you missed the live broadcast, enjoy Ji Chang Wook’s segment entitled “Till the End of the World” right here!
