“Melting Me Softly” co-stars Ji Chang Wook and Im Won Hee appeared together as guests on the October 5 broadcast of the tvN variety show, where they spent a day toiling at a saltern. During their car ride there, Yoo Jae Suk asked Im Won Hee about his first impressions of Ji Chang Wook. what he thought of Ji Chang Wook.
“When I first saw him, I thought he was really handsome,” replied Im Won Hee, and Yoo Jae Suk enthusiastically agreed.
“I’ve seen a lot of handsome people [in my line of work],” continued Im Won Hee, “but there are a lot of good-looking people whose faces you eventually get sick of seeing. Chang Wook, however, seems to get more and more handsome the more you see him. I thought, ‘Wow, he’s getting even better-looking.'”
Yoo Jae Suk agreed, “I know what you mean. There are people who are good-looking, but you quickly get tired of seeing them.” He then jokingly asked Ji Chang Wook, “Chang Wook, you know you’re handsome, right?”
Ji Chang Wook humbly replied, “Honestly, I’m not ugly, right? But my [face] isn’t really the style I personally prefer.”
A shocked Yoo Jae Suk responded, “Your face isn’t the style you prefer? Chang Wook, what does that mean?”
Ji Chang Wook went on to explain, “It’s because I have really deep double eyelids, and I have really strong features.” Yoo Jae Suk interjected, “But people really want those kinds of features!”
“Personally, though,” Ji Chang Wook shared, “the type of face I prefer is different. The type without double eyelids, and—”
But before the actor could elaborate further, Yoo Jae Suk jokingly cut in, “But just because you want a face without double eyelids doesn’t mean you want a face like mine, right?” He later added, “It’s really surprising that you’re not happy with your face.”
Ji Chang Wook replied thoughtfully, “I think I have low self-esteem.”
