8 Times Ji Sung Proved His Acting Skills With Quality K-Drama Characters

 

7530142b9ff941cea224e2fb41141d4c.jpeg?s=

 

For many drama enthusiasts, we all have some actors or actresses whom we consider a must-watch. For me, Ji Sung is one of them.

 

As long as he’s in a new drama, regardless of what the genre or the plotline is, you can be sure I’ll be watching it. The man is just so talented and versatile that he easily captures the essence of each character he dons.

 

Ji Sung is a giving actor; he is able to elevate the performances of his scene partners. Ji Sung is a consistent actor; he is always good, even if the actual drama is “meh” (cough, “Entertainer,” cough). Ji Sung is a charming actor; he has strong chemistry with just about everyone! Ji Sung is… da bomb! *Cue Perry Park*

Even in his earlier works, he was able to pick up the nuances in his characters and deliver layered performances. With age and life experience, his more recent works become even more complex and fascinating to watch. Here are just some of his most interesting characters in K-dramas.

 

Warning: Spoilers! Spoilers everywhere!

Spoiler

Choi Jung Won in “All In” (2003)

All-In-e1565534580706.jpg

 

“All In” isn’t Ji Sung’s first drama. In fact, his debut work is a drama called “KAIST” which aired in 1999, a whopping 20 years ago!

 

But “All In,” due to its wide-reaching popularity and Hallyu-wave-classic status, is often considered to be Ji Sung’s breakthrough drama. Indeed, this was one of his last times playing the second male lead. Fun fact: While other actors were hesitant to take the role, as they were worried about being outshone by the talented Lee Byung Hun, Ji Sung actually grabbed the chance and suggested himself for it.

 

Despite coming from different social and familial backgrounds, Choi Jung Won (Ji Sung) and Kim In Ha (Lee Byung Hun) become fast friends when they meet in school. While trying to save their friend Min Su Yon (Song Hye Kyo), they commit arson and, unbeknownst to them, manslaughter too. Kim In Ha is sent to prison for his crimes but Choi Jung Won, because of his family’s connection, is cleared of all charges. This split in their paths takes a toll on their friendship as well as bring about changes in their personalities. While teenage Choi Jong Won was the model student, adult Choi Jong Won gives in to his rebel instincts and often lives his life in the grey area — he never veers evil, nor is he ever a saint. It is a hard line to toe, but Ji Sung plays it so well and so layered, which keeps the viewers naturally invested and engaged in his character. Oh, and he held his own across Lee Byun Hun too!

Kim Soo Ro in “Kim Soo Ro” (2010)

Kim-Soo-Ro.jpg

 

I’m going to be super honest and admit that this drama was added this to the list because it is one of Ji Sung’s rare entries into historical dramas. (Yes, there’s also 2012’s “The Great Seer,” but the cast’s super entertaining “Running Man” appearance was more memorable than the actual drama, so… to each their own.)

 

Kim-Soo-Ro3.jpg

 

“Kim Soo Ro” is a story that is largely based on the true tale of Kim Soo Ro, the historical character who unified various tribes and became the founder of the state of Geumgwan Gaya during the Three Kingdoms Period. Ji Sung, who plays this titular character, easily captures Kim Soo Ro’s charisma, intelligence, and tenacity as he slashes his way to the throne. While I personally favor modern-Ji Sung to historical-Ji Sung, there’s no denying that his charms permeate to whichever century he is in.

Cha Ji Hun in “Protect the Boss” (2011)

Protect-the-Boss2.png

 

Ji Sung’s turn as Cha Ji Hun in “Protect the Boss” is one that really put his great comedic skills on display — a facet of him we rarely see in his earlier projects. This character is definitely one of Ji Sung’s less suave ones. Cha Ji Hun, while being an arrogant chaebol, is actually more earnest and harmless than the typical jerkchaebol. He’s unambitious, has social anxiety issues, and is somewhat of a child at heart (read: immature).

 

protect-the-boss-gif.gif

 

“Protect the Boss” is a workplace rom-com, with an emphasis on the “com.” The comedy hits from all sides, ranging from parodies to slapstick humor, and Ji Sung is up for all of it, no matter how absurd he may look. (And he does. That hairstyle!

 

Ugggh!) And yet through all the broad humor, Ji Sung still imbues Cha Ji Hun with enough heart and earnestness that viewers can’t help but naturally cheer this endearing goofball on.

Jo Min Hyuk in “Secret Love” (2013)

Secret2.jpg

 

Jo Min Hyuk in “Secret Love” starts off as the stereotypical chaebol that we often saw in K-dramaland before we started getting nice guy chaebols. He’s an arrogant, condescending, and hard-partying playboy who is just generally an atrocious human being.

 

Though it’s not long before we find out that he unraveled into this horrifying human being because of a tragedy that happened a while back.

 

Secret-Ji-Sung-gif.gif

 

Is this an early depiction of the Yona pout?

 

Even though Jo Min Hyuk is all kinds of wrong in the early episodes, Ji Sung’s delivery allows the viewers to see where he is coming from. We might not be able to empathize with him, but we can at least sympathize that this emotionally damaged character is a victim himself too. Ji Sung usually plays the endearing hero in dramas, so this dark, tortured turn as Jo Min Hyuk is certainly out of the norm for him, and yet he easily proves that he can pull off these type of roles.

Cha Do Hyun, Shin Se Gi et al. in “Kill Me Heal Me” (2015)

Shin-Se-Gi.png

 

When reading the description for this drama, I was absolutely rolling my eyes. This was around the same time “Hyde Jekyll, Me” was announced and both featured male leads with Dissociative Identity Disorder. I still clearly remember my thoughts at the time: “Seven identities? C’mon! Are they trying to compete by churning out more identities? That’s just ridiculous!” And boy was I wrong.

 

yona-gif.gif

 

How did this admittedly implausible premise turn into such a big hit? Two words. Ji. Sung. While it’s true that the drama has many things going for it — the strong chemistry between the three main leads and an intriguing storyline — if Ji Sung hadn’t been able to own all his characters, it could have potentially been a mess.

 

Ji Sung imbues each identity with so much vibrancy and distinctiveness — Cha Do Hyun’s mild-mannered personality, Shin Se Gi’s toughness, Perry Park’s flamboyance; Ahn Yona’s coquettishness, and so on — each identity feels like it could be a fully fleshed-out character in and of its own. So when each of these identities started disappearing in the drama, I was ugly sobbing right along, as if we were saying goodbye to dear friends we had known for a long time. And that is the power of Ji Sung’s versatility. That, and making Shin Se Gi so damn sexy. *Swoons*

Park Jung Woo in “Defendant” (2017)

Defendant.jpg

 

For “Defendant” Ji Sung dons the character of Park Jung Woo, a prosecutor who finds himself in jail and on death row, but is unable to remember how or why. Later, he realizes that he’s been imprisoned for murdering his wife and young daughter but refuses to believe that he could commit such a heinous act. This conviction prompts Jung Woo to search for answers and embark on a journey of revenge and survival.

 

Defendant-gif.gif

 

Park Jung Woo goes through many stages of character progression in this drama, and with them, a roller-coaster of emotions.

 

He goes from an amnesiac who’s haunted by fleeting images of blood and death, to an inmate who’s fighting to stay sane and alive, to a loving father who’s determined to protect his daughter, and finally a prosecutor who dons his gown once again and returns to his former glory.

 

Ji Sung brings such emotional depth to each of these facets of Park Jung Woo, and the pain and suffering he experiences along the way are palpable. Each episode, Ji Sung goes toe-to-toe with the just-as-amazing Uhm Ki Joon and both actors fire on all cylinders, drawing us further and further into this great thriller of a drama.

Cha Joo Hyuk in “Familiar Wife” (2018)

Familiar-Wife2.jpg

 

This time around, Ji Sung forsakes the more dramatic roles for a more down-to-earth one — a husband in a failing marriage.

 

“Familiar Wife” is a story of Cha Joo Hyuk and his two wives. Yes, you read that right, though it’s not quite what you think. There is a supernatural twist on this story, as Cha Joo Hyuk manages to find a way to go back in time and chooses his first love instead of his current wife, Seo Woo Jin (Han Ji Min). And as he travels between these two different timelines, we see Cha Joo Hyuk alternating between a frazzled husband who has had enough of his overbearing wife, and of a man who is flourishing because he is hopeful for love once again — and Ji Sung delivers on both ends!

 

familiar-wife-ji-sung-gif.gif

 

While this character isn’t as flashily written as Jo Min Hyuk, Cha Do Hyun (x7), or Park Jung Woo, Ji Sung’s natural charisma and abounding talent gives Cha Joo Hyuk the groundedness it needs — especially amongst the supernatural elements — and weaves a heartfelt story rooted in love and second chances.

Cha Yo Han “Doctor John” (2019)

Doctor-John2.jpg

 

Ji Sung’s latest (and currently-airing) drama “Doctor John” brings him back into the medical world 11 years after his first foray in “New Heart” in 2007 (and back to prison after two years). Cha Yo Han is a talented anesthesiologist who has his patient’s best interests at heart, even if those interests are at times against the law. This is ultimately what lands him in jail, as Cha Yo Han illegally euthanized one of his patients who had been painfully suffering and without an end in sight.

 

Doctor-John-Ji-Sung-gif-3.gif

 

While this drama is only a few episodes in, we have already witnessed Cha Yo Han’s brilliance in diagnosing, and determination in providing the correct treatment despite his colleagues’ doubts. When discussing sensitive topics such as euthanasia, Cha Yo Han is able to resolutely vocalize his stance as well as give the reasons behind his choices.

 

Ji Sung delivers the gravitas and depth when talking about these matters and this encourages the viewers to consider Cha Yo Han’s arguments too. And while I had initially said I hoped the relationship between Cha Yo Han and Kang Si Young (Lee Se Young) would remain mentor-mentee, now, after a few more episodes, I am so conflicted! The way Cha Yo Han looks at Kang Si Young is swoon-inducing, and… well, darn you Ji Sung and your electrifying gazes!

10 Cheesy Romantic K-Dramas That Are Total Guilty Pleasures

 

2acf49cb041f4ba0b9a3a2846ae80ca1.jpeg?s=

 

Let’s be real. There are A LOT of cheesy K-dramas out there. Sometimes we watch a particular scene that we’ve seen countless times before that is off-the-charts cheesy, but we still can’t help but love it. There are various tropes or elements that usually result in a drama giving off a cheesy vibe. Some aspects include an accidental hug or kiss, an over-the-top confession, a background song, and super sweet displays of affection in the form of actions or words. And although these cheesy elements are enough to make us cringe, it still doesn’t take away from the fact that the K-drama is an absolute pleasure to watch. Here’s a look at 10 Romantic K-dramas that are cheesy but a total guilty pleasure.

 

Warning: Minor spoilers ahead!

 

 

9. “Kill Me Heal Me

“Kill Me Heal Me” is the hit MBC series starring Ji Sung, Hwang Jung Eum, and Park Seo Joon. Ji Sung plays Cha Do Hyun, a troubled man who struggles with multiple personality disorder. He tries to get better by hiring a psychiatric student by the name of Oh Ri Jin (Hwang Jung Eum). The two end up falling in love with each other and discover that their pasts are intertwined.

 

kill-me-heal-me.jpg

 

One of the main reasons why this particular K-drama is so cheesy is because of one of the personalities who goes by the name of Shin Se Gi. In the first scene with Shin Se Gi, he says and does things that are so cringe-worthy. But even though it is pretty cheesy, there’s something about him that totally had everyone smitten!

7 Underrated Rom-Com K-Dramas You Might Have Missed

 

581db5fd3cd2473182b10ac0ffc3544f.jpeg?s=

 

 

So much romance, so little time. Every year, more and more amazing romantic K-dramas pile up on our to-watch lists, unwatched. We find ourselves distracted by the shiny, buzzy dramas that everyone’s GIF-ing, and we forget about that sweet little show that once looked so promising.

 

Often, it’s these unassuming little shows that are most rewarding to watch once we finally give them a chance. But who has the time to sift through a million obscure dramas in the hope that something decent will show up? For your convenience, here’s a little cheat sheet: seven underrated dramas that are worth that free weekend.

 

Warning: tiny spoilers ahead

 

 

3. “Familiar Wife

I know, I know, how could a Ji Sung drama be underrated? He and Han Ji Min are both fantastic here, playing a husband and wife with a long history that both divides and unites them over the course of different timelines.

This drama is a watchable mix of fun, light fantasy, and serious life lessons learned. It may seem at first that our couple are not the greatest people. Maybe they really should break up? That’s what makes it so satisfying as we watch them change in a real, nuanced way. In the end, we’re rooting for them to get a second chance.

We may be seeing Ji Sung in a variety show soon!

 

On October 11, it was reported that Ji Sung is preparing a new variety show with tvN. When asked for comment, a source from Namoo Actors stated, “It’s true that Ji Sung has received the offer and is currently in the process of looking over it.”

 

Ji Sung has made guest appearances in variety shows over the years, but if the new show becomes a reality, this will be the first time that he’s a fixed cast member. Anticipation is rising to see what kind of show Ji Sung and tvN might be preparing together.

 

Ji Sung has been on a break since his latest drama “Doctor John,” looking over potential next projects. He recently appeared in the music video for Baek Ji Young’s “We.”

 

Stay tuned for more updates and catch Ji Sung’s latest drama “Doctor John” below!

Ohhhh ... Recientemente terminé con el doctor John ... Me encantó muchísimo, Ji cantó como siempre lo mejor. Me siento triste por él por ese tipo de enfermedad, y buscando más información sobre CIPA, sabía sobre esa condición y muy terrible ... Es una enfermedad huérfana ..... Qué aterrador tener una infección o algo peor ..... 

Tema muy humano muy profundo, uno de los mejores cantados de nuestro Ji ... 

Espero verlo pronto en otro proyecto, en otra historia maravillosa ... ¡Es increíble! ¡Lo extraño tanto!

Hi SasoryCantabile, NICE that you love his drama, "Dr. John" - As far as I know, CIPA is a disorder of the nervous system, which prevents the feeling of pain or temperature, and prevents a person from sweating, too.  His inability to feel physical pain does not extend to emotional pain -- people with CIPA feel emotional pain just like anyone else. A heat attack, for instance, is much more dangerous for patients with CIPA because they do not feel it, therefore do not know that they need to be hospitalized. My BF is a doctor and he said that there is still no cure for CIPA. This condition is inherited.  CIPA is a very rare disease. This can also affect their sense of taste.  Ye, right you are -  it is an orphan disease .....:P
