Whether you are already a fan of Ji Sung or started to adore him, here are some of his drama that you shouldn’t miss.
1. Protect the Boss (2011)
Ji Sung played the role of Cha Ji Heon, an immature director at DN group alongside with Choi Gang Hee who played the role of No Eun Sul, she is struggling to find a full time job due to her poor academic and unpleasant life background and suddenly became a personal secretary of Ji Heon and as they work together, they developed feelings to each other.
Eun Sul also helped Ji Heon to deal with his anxiety disorders such as agoraphobia and ochlophobia. Starring also Kim Jae Joong best known as the member of JYJ and was originally member of TVXQ and Wang Ji Hye as Song Na Yoon.
I kinda love his character here. I love the way he shows his cute gestures of love to Eun Sul. I love the way his character changed, from immature (childish) to mature one by proving that he is capable of becoming a DN group’s successor. Mostly, I love the fact that love is so powerful that can change all negative things into positive.

This drama is so good, both Jung Eum and Ji Sung nailed their acting skills here. Highly recommended bes! Be also prepare a lot of tissues when you plan to watch it.

I love the 7 personalities of Ji Sung here. He really deserves a standing ovation since he showed his versatility when he played 7 different roles in this drama.
I fell inlove with the cool and brave Shin Se Gi. I like the fact that Jung Eum and Ji Sung reunited again after their drama “Secret Love” and hoping to see them again in another drama in the near future.

There’s so much to learn in this kind of drama, such as understanding each other in every circumstances. It is highly recommended for a married couple and to those who are planning to have their own family in the future.

Medical dramas are the best! Specially this one. I got hooked by watching its first episode it’s kinda addictive.
I don’t know if it’s only me but the chemistry of Se Young and Ji Sung will give us a romantic feeling.
Medical dramas are not only for healing of sickness but also healing of the soul. There are lot of lessons in life that can make you realize how life is so precious.
A simple reminder, there’s a lot of things that is beyond our control, what’s important is that we learn how to cope the pain and move forward for a better future.
