22 March update: Ji Chang Wook’s real-life best friend, actor Choi Tae Joon (Missing Nine), is reportedly considering the role of Ji Eun Hyuk, a lawyer with a complicated family background and tough childhood. He meets our protagonist Noh Ji Wook at the age of 12 and becomes his only friend, brother and family. Viewers can look forward to bromance between the two characters if Choi Tae Joon accepts the role. Meanwhile, actress Han Ji Min has declined the offer to star in this drama, so the production team is looking for another female lead.

According to press reports today, Ji Chang Wook may have a different leading lady for the new SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama “Please Be Careful of This Woman.” Actress Han Ji Min (“Rooftop Prince,” “Age of Shadows”) has also been offered the lead female role to star alongside Ji Chang Wook.
Well THAT was fast! It was announced today that Ji Chang Wook has either accepted or is still reviewing an offer for the lead male role in the upcoming drama “The Happiest Time of My Life” / “내 생애 가장 행복한 시간 ” (working title). Details are extremely sketchy at present, but there are a few snippets that have been reported.
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.
As “The K2” officially ends its run, Ji Chang Wook attended the wrap-up party with his fellow cast members on the afternoon of 12 November at a restaurant in Yeouido, Seoul. Congratulations for completing yet another successful drama!
