by | August 4, 2014 | 37 Comments
I’m not exactly sure why an interview was done with Ji Chang-wook (there wasn’t any talk of his upcoming project Healer), but if every actor comes across as likable and grounded as this one, I won’t ask questions, just happily translate.

by | September 8, 2013 | 149 Comments
