In Photos: Ji Chang-Wook's K-Drama Leading Ladies Through The Years

We're excited about his upcoming series, "City Couple's Way of Love." Here, we take a look back at this heartthrob's K-Dramas and his leading ladies

Ji Chang-wook fans, rejoice!


This 33-year-old heartthrob will be back with a 12-episode Kakao TV series titled City Couple's Way of Love this December. Opposite actress Kim Ji-won, the rom-com web series features Ji Chang-wook as Park Jae-won, an architect who's described to have a passionate and honest personality. The extended title of the show is City Couple's Way of Love: My Lovable Camera Thief, as his character coins the nickname "camera thief" to refer to the woman who stole his heart; the woman disappeared but he can't quite bring himself to forget her. Then he meets Lee Eun-o, a freelance marketer; she introduces herself to him as her alter ego Yoon Sun-a, who has a much more free-spirited persona than her real self. She falls in love with him. As to how she'll reveal to him the truth about her fake identity, that's what's sure to excite the viewers and keep them hooked.


Last September, it was confirmed that Ji Chang-wook and Kim Ji-won have indeed been paired up. Early this month, the cast gathered for a script reading. And today, teaser photos of the new on-screen couple quickly went viral on the Internet, as the two show promising chemistry.


City Couple's Way of Love is directed by Park Shin-woo (It’s Okay to Not Be OkayEncounterDon’t Dare to Dream, and Hyde Jekyll, Me) and written by Jung Hyun-jung (I Need Romance and Romance is a Bonus Book).
