[Exclusive] Ji Chang Wook is discharged from military service (fan account)

At 8:30am on 27 April 2019, Sergeant Ji Chang Wook officially completed his military enlistment by participating in a small discharge ceremony in front of assembled fans and the press at the 5th Artillery Army Brigade 8726 at Cheorwon-gun, Gangwon Province.  I was fortunate enough to arrange my work schedule to attend in person, so here’s a quick report of the day’s activities!

[Exclusive] Happy 9th debut anniversary to Ji Chang Wook (and lucky draw!)

How time flies!  Another 23 October has come around again for Ji Chang Wook’s debut anniversary!  2017 marks the 9th year since his official debut in the 2008 movie “Sleeping Beauty,” and even though our Soldier Ji is pretty much out of the limelight for another 566 days, 12 hours, 29 minutes and 10 seconds (not like we’re counting or anything…), we here at The Kitchen would be derelict in not acknowledging such a momentous occasion.  So congratulations to Ji Chang Wook for his vast contributions to the entertainment world, and we cannot wait to see you back on our screens after faithfully serving your country.  Salute!

Guess who turns 30 years old today?  Our very own Ji Chang Wook celebrates his birthday on 5 July, and Ji Chang Wook’s Kitchen sends along its wishes for a very happy day, with many more to follow!  This day also marks our site’s second anniversary! Woo hoo!!

We both were racking our brains trying to figure out something special to commemorate this momentous event.  For his drama debut 7th anniversary last year (here and here), we posted each of our personal favorite Ji Chang Wook drama characters, so this year we decided to flip that around and suggest what roles we would see Ji Chang Wook take on for any of his future dramas.

We’ve already watched Wook’s on-screen performances as a schoolboy, chef, warrior swordsman, vegetable seller, pianist, Emperor, and night courier.  Hopefully soon we will see him portray an unemployed gamer, day-and-night twins, and a yuan wu dao instructor.  You may be thinking, “Wow!  So many characters have already been added to his career portfolio.  What other roles would there be available for him to take on?”  Well, fret no more – The Kitchen came up with four different possibilities for your consideration.  Read along and see if any of these could also be your picks as well!
