Actor Ji Chang Wook is currently filming for MBC’s next Monday-Tuesday drama “Empress Ki.” New stills of Ji Chang Wook were released on October 16. Donning the garments of the Yuan Dynasty crown prince, his eyes are filled with defiance, but also reflect a deep sadness within.

Revealing his strong ambitions, Ji Chang Wook stated, “Since I am the youngest, I was really nervous, but this made me more focused on doing well. I will do my best to follow and learn from my seniors and enjoy filming the show.”
