Ji Chang Wook’s Agency Apologizes For Indoor Smoking Incident

Ji Chang Wook’s Agency Apologizes For Indoor Smoking Incident


Ji Chang Wook’s agency has issued a formal apology regarding his recent indoor smoking controversy.


On January 26, Ji Chang Wook’s recent drama “Welcome to Samdalri” released a behind-the-scenes video that included footage of the actor smoking an electronic cigarette on the indoor set.


Because it is illegal in South Korea to smoke or vape in public places aside from designated smoking areas, the footage sparked controversy, and the “Welcome to Samdalri” team ultimately deleted the scene from its video.


On February 11, Ji Chang Wook’s agency Spring Company released the following statement:

Hello, this is Spring Company.

We would like to apologize to everyone who felt uncomfortable about Ji Chang Wook’s actions in the behind-the-scenes content from his drama that was released on January 26.

The behind-the-scenes content in question included a scene of actor Ji Chang Wook smoking an electronic cigarette indoors. The scene brought discomfort to those who saw it as improper.

Actor Ji Chang Wook also recognizes that his behavior was improper, and he feels sorry for disappointing many people. Once again, we deeply apologize to those who watched the content, along with the staff on set, the rest of the cast, and the viewers who gave their love to the drama.

With this incident in mind, we will take special care to prevent this kind of improper behavior from reoccurring in the future. Once again, we sincerely apologize for giving many people cause for concern through this incident.

Thank you for reading this long statement.

Thank you.

As much as we must post the bad with the good, this crap just seems so suspect for some K-netizen to go after Wook 15 DAYS after the release of the JTBC behind-scenes footage.  Obviously someone has an axe to grind or way too much time on their hands.  Or both.


But we're hoping this turns into a teaching piece for both Wook, Spring Company and any other network that releases behind-scenes videos to SCREEN THEM CAREFULLY.  Even with a vape pen or e-cigarette, don't think anyone is not looking.  Nothing is sacred anymore.


End of rant.

Disney+’s “Gangnam B-Side” (previously known as “Bulk”) has shared more details on the upcoming drama starring Ji Chang Wook, Ha Yun Kyung, and Jo Woo Jin!


“Gangnam B-Side” is a crime series in which an elite detective who has been demoted, a prosecutor, and a mysterious broker team up to pursue dark forces against the backdrop of Gangnam at night. The drama will be helmed by director Park Noo Ri of “Money,” and notably, this marks the reunion of Ji Chang Wook and Jo Woo Jin since they starred in the thriller “Hard Hit” together.

Ji Chang Wook will be taking on the role of the mysterious broker Yoon Gil Ho who has control over the Gangnam area. In order to survive, Yoon Gil Ho is a character who has lived at the bottom of the darkest side of the extravagant city. To perfectly portray his character, Ji Chang Wook will make a drastic transformation.


Ha Yun Kyung, who previously impressed in “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” and “Hospital Playlist,” will transform into junior prosecutor Min Seo Jin who has moved forward with only promotion in mind at the public prosecutors’ office without a single connection as someone who graduated from a national university in the countryside.


“Gangnam B-Side” is slated to premiere in the second half of 2024. Stay tuned for updates!
