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 My Boss (2011)
Ji Sung played the role of Cha Ji Heon, an immature director at DN group alongside 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 eventually 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 a member of JYJ and was originally a member of TVXQ and Wang Ji Hye as Song Na Yoon.
I love his character here, the way he shows his cute gestures of love to Eun Sul, his character development; 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! also prepare a lot of tissues when you plan to watch it.

This is indeed an award-winning drama. This drama is superb! All characters of Cha Do Hyun have a deep meaning.
I love the 7 personalities of Ji Sung here. He deserves a standing ovation since he showed his versatility when he played 7 different roles in this drama.
I fell in love 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 hope to see them again in another drama soon.
Their tandem for me was one of the best.

All about Joo Hyuk portrayed by Ji Sung and Woo Jin portrayed by Han Ji Min who was married for 5 years.

An old man gave him 2 coins that cause him to travel back in time. He woke up and finds himself in a different situation than he’s married to Hye Won, not to Woo Jin.
There’s so much to learn in this kind of drama, such as understanding each other in every circumstance. It is highly recommended for a married couple and to those who are planning to have their own family in the future.
I love this drama next to “Go Back Couple”. Han Ji Min and Ji Sung made a great impact on all viewers and they have great chemistry together.

Medical dramas are the best! Especially 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 sickness but also healing of the soul. There are a lot of lessons in life that will make you realize how life is so precious.
A simple reminder, there are things in life that are beyond our control, Life may not be easy sometimes but remember, there’s a rainbow always after the rain.
