If You Wish Upon Me will deliver essential messages to society.
Ji Chang Wook plays Yoon Gyeo Rae, a troubled soul. “When I first read the script, I thought it was my story and someone else’s story,” he said. “I talked to the director and writer a lot about the character Yoon Gyeo Rae. What kind of a man he is and how he opens up to other people and change – I thought hard about that. That wasn’t easy. The steps I took to prepare for the character were different from my previous roles.”
Choi Sooyoung plays Seo Yeon Joo, a hope-bringer. “I loved how Yeon Joo was expressed in the script,” she explained. “I wanted to appear in the project where chemistry was important, and I was lucky to come upon this script that I could rely on.” She continued, “After I joined the project, I worked out really hard. I wanted my character to exude energy.”
Sooyoung also talked about playing a nurse role, just like her teammate YoonA in the drama Big Mouth. “I didn’t know YoonA was playing a nurse too,” she shared. “But YoonA is a nurse in a general hospital and I’m a nurse in a hospice center. We didn’t talk about playing nurses.”
Ji Chang Wook lastly commented, “I was really happy while filming. I hope the viewers can feel the warmth in this drama.” Sooyoung said, “Sung Dong Il and Ji Chang Wook’s bromance is a must-watch. Also, there’s this family-like vibe for the Team Genie and Won Ji An has her own narrative too. If You Wish Upon Me is like a comprehensive gift box with various kinds of relationships.”
