Ji Chang Wook Confirms For First Drama After Military Discharge
“Melt Me” is about a man and a woman who participate in a project to be frozen for 24 hours, only to wake up 20 years later due to a mysterious scheme. Once out of the freeze, the two experience a dangerous side effect from the project wherein they must maintain a core body temperature of 31.5 degrees Celsius (approximately 88.7 degrees Fahrenheit) to survive. Coupled with the warming of their hearts from romantic attraction, they find themselves in a sticky situation.
Ji Chang Wook will be playing a star variety show PD named Ma Dong Chan who makes hits out of every show he creates. He decides to personally participate in his show called “Frozen Human Project,” but instead of waking up 24 hours later, 20 years have passed when he opens his eyes. Everyone he knows has aged 20 years, while he has maintained his perfect physique and youth from pre-freeze.
Written by Baek Mi Kyung of “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon,” “Woman of Dignity,” and “Miracle We Met” and directed by Shin Woo Chul of “Lovers in Paris,” “Secret Garden,” and “A Gentleman’s Dignity,” anticipation is high for the drama.
“Melt Me” is slated to air sometime in the second half of 2019.
