5 K-drama roles that instantly grew Whatcha Wearin' actor Ji Sung's fandom
Talented actor Ji Sung has been part of the entertainment industry since 1999. This Valentine's weekend, his sexy love film Whatcha Wearin' is the featured movie for DramaFever Movie Night. He plays Hyun Seung, a guy Yoon Jung accidentally calls instead of her boyfriend, and the mature love story goes from there.
In real life, no one would mistakenly call the top star. It would be absolutely intentional! Do you want me to prove it? I have listed five K-dramas that instantly grew Ji Sung's fanbase and helped make it the solid fandom it is today.
1. All In
Even though it was still early in his acting career, he landed the role of main character Choi Jung Won.This 2003 award-winning action series was one of the most-watched shows of all time. It achieved almost 50% rating on its final episode, and it pretty much solidified Ji Sung as a rising star to watch.
2. Save The Last Dance For Me
This 2004 fan favorite probably holds a special place in the 38-year-old actor's heart too. Save The Last Dance For Me was where he met Lee Bo Young. The pair would go on to date for almost six years before tying the knot in September 2013. K-drama fans paid very close attention to the hot couple and were elated when they welcomed their first child, Kwak Ji Yoo, into the world last June.
3. New Heart
His 2007-2008 medical series enjoyed viewership ratings in the 30% range and lasted for 23 episodes. Apparently, he was very convincing in his role as resident doctor Lee Eun Sung at the Kwanghee University Hospital.
He won three awards from the 2011 SBS Drama Awards for his excellent portrayal of immature Cha Ji Heon. The hilarious romantic comedy became a hit in Japan, and it aired in Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
Unfortunately, his character in this 2015 series suffers from dissociative identity disorder. Viewers were able to find a positive in the negative, though. They saw their beloved star play seven different characters in one K-drama. That was pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
