Ji Chang Wook, currently garnering critical acclaim both domestically and internationally for the Disney Plus original series The Worst Evil, recently graced the pages of GQ Korea. Dressed in dazzling attire and lights, the actor showcased a sensuality in captivating fall fashion.
In the interview that followed the photoshoot, Ji Chang Wook talked about his acting transformation in The Worst Evil. When asked if he discovered a new side of himself while acting in the series, he responded, “Absolutely. Even while acting, I frequently felt this sense of ‘newness’ as I followed the flow and narrative of the show.” He added, “Our show offers differences unique from the clichés typical of the genre. I grew confident as I filmed.”
Of course, one of the questions was about his performance as Park Jun Mo, which has been hailed as a “career-best.” Ji divulged, “I focused on what Jun Mo had to display. I minimized his sense of duty and justice as a cop. Once you strip away moral reasoning and judgments, all that remains is instinct. I thought instinctive emotions would be more realistic.”
Finally, in response to a question about any changes in his approach to acting, the actor shared, “Acting still presents challenges. Not much has changed, except for a small sense of ease that comes with experience.” He continued, “As an actor, ambition is inevitable. I still have more to show and prove. However, I always tread carefully to ensure that my ambitions do not become a liability to the project.”
Now 15 years into an already impressive career, Ji continues to impress with his multifaceted talents. There’s no doubt that the next 15 years look just as promising for this versatile actor.
Meanwhile, the final three episodes of The Worst Evil will be available on the 25th. At the end of this year, viewers can also anticipate Ji Chang Wook’s new JTBC drama Welcome to Samdal-ri (literal title).
