Monday Cutie: Ji Chang-Wook (지창욱)


Ji Chang-Wook (지창욱)

DOB: July 5, 1987
Height: 182 cm
Known for: Smile Again,
Warrior Baek Dong-Soo, Empress Ki, Healer

Before Healer, I didn’t really know Ji Chang-Wook. He’s familiar but before that drama, I didn’t really pay him much notice. But if you think about it, I should have jumped into watching all his shows for the sole reason that he looks like ChangMin. So I wonder why I never did until Healer.

I still don’t know until when this Ji Chang-Wook love will last, since I haven’t seem him in anything else. But this love may be new, but it’s already pretty intense. HAHAHAHA. I love him as Seo Jung-Hoo/Park Bong-Soo/Healer, and these photos made me love him as Ji Chang-Wook.

From the very first episode of Healer, it was instant love because he’s not only a cross between ChangMin and Jaejoong, but he’s also a really fine actor. His intensity on screen and the fact that he doesn’t lose his charm in the presence of the amazing Yoo Ji-Tae is beyond admirable. Also, there are times when he looks like Lee Min-Ho and Choi Jin-Hyuk. Haha!

Even though Ji Chang-Wook resembles a bunch of Korean stars, he shines just as bright as them.

I was putting off this Monday Cutie feature because I was waiting for more Ji Chang-Wook photoshoots to come out. But I cannot wait for too long, because these photos are already too hard to resist! Besides, I can always do a part two. *wink wink*

This is from a spread in 2013 before he became Healer-sshi and catapulted to international stardom.
He looks about three years younger! (source:


Another one from the set of photos from Kwave. I love this!!!


It’s not just in this GQ photoshoot, but in 80% of his photos, he’s touching his face.

It’s a tad too edited, but his beauty still shines through. Hehehehe.



The above two photos are my favorite from the bunch because it’s not edited *too* much.



YES PLEASE. See? Minimal makeup and only a touch of editing
make him look 10 times handsomer! That’s not a word? Do I care? (No.)

I love this CeCi photos, too! The laidback concept is very cute. He looks more relaxed and natural.
Not that wearing polka dots shoes is natural, but ya know?

This has to be THE Ji Chang-Wook picture. Idk, but it’s definitely the most memorable for me,
even before I jumped into the Healer bandwagon.

He posts an awful lot of selfies on Instagram, and I’m definitely not complaining!
Follow him, quick! @jichangwook

 I have yet to watch his guesting on Running Man, but hopefully I can get around to watching it this week. I’m also looking into his other shows, but I don’t think I can commit myself to a 52-episode-long weekend dramas! But for the love of everything Park Bong-Soo, I might actually try.

Who should I feature next on Monday Cutie? :)

    He’s so hot! And you’re right, he does seem like a mixture of all those people! I haven’t seen Healer yet (College!!!! T_T) but I’ve heard great stuff about it so it’s high on my TBW list. I just know I’m going to fall in love with him! Thank you for the awesome Monday Cutie post and for making my Monday better! :D

      Oh Hira! I wish you can finally have some free time watch Healer. It’s seriously so gooooooood! :) Hehehehe no problem. It’s my pleasure to spam you guys with cute pictures of handsome Korean men. :D
