“If You Wish Upon Me” is a new drama inspired by an actual organization in the Netherlands that fulfills the wishes of terminal cancer patients. Ji Chang Wook will star as Yoon Gyeo Re, a man who has been pushed to his limits by a difficult life full of struggles. However, when Yoon Gyeo Re winds up having to volunteer at a hospice, he finds his life changing in unexpected ways while helping to make the patients’ wishes come true.
Regarding the drama, Ji Chang Wook shared, “All the actors including Sung Dong Il, Sooyoung, and Won Ji An had perfect chemistry from the first filming. It was a set that was as warm and enjoyable as the drama.”
Ji Chang Wook continued, “Due to the backdrop of a hospice hospital, I got to meet many actors, and it would get noisy when we gathered together to the extent that even the director had a difficult time. That’s how great the atmosphere was. I hope that the positive energy I felt on set is delivered well to the viewers as well.”
Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung stars as Seo Yeon Joo, a tough and cheerful nurse at the hospice who is obsessed with exercise. She remarked, “I was excited from even before the script reading after hearing news that I would be working together with people that I am a fan of. We shared ideas freely on set, and everyone was receptive to all my ad-libs, so I filmed enjoyably.”
She continued, “In the scenes where Team Genie gathered together, I filmed while smiling every moment as if I was together with family. I miss them from time to time because we filmed enjoyably while being considerate of one another.”
Won Ji An plays Ha Jun Kyung, the human embodiment of a black swan. The actress shared, “I learned quite a lot while acting with senior actors that I respect. The more I acted with Ji Chang Wook, the more I learned a lot about Jun Kyung. While working together with Sung Dong Il, I felt warm every time for some inexplicable reason. Also, when facing Sooyoung, I was subconsciously attracted to her warm energy.”
“If You Wish Upon Me” premieres on August 10 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
