Ji Chang Wook, Sooyoung, And Sung Dong Il's Most Touching Scenes Thus Far In

Only a few episodes in, “If You Wish Upon Me” has already touched viewers’ hearts!

KBS’s “If You Wish Upon Me” is inspired by an actual organization in the Netherlands that fulfills the wishes of terminal cancer patients. Ji Chang Wook stars as Yoon Gyeo Re, a man who has been pushed to his limits by a difficult life full of struggles. However, when he 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.

Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung stars in the drama as Seo Yeon Joo, a tough and cheerful nurse at the hospice who is obsessed with exercise, while Sung Dong Il plays Kang Tae Shik, the volunteer chief of Team Genie.

As viewers continue to familiarize themselves with Team Genie and the hospice’s patients, here are three moments so far where Ji Chang Wook, Sooyoung, and Sung Dong Il warmed the hearts of the audience!

Ji Chang Wook’s comfort and warmth to those in the face of death: “Still, please don’t die.”

To an elderly man nearing the end of his life, Yoon Gyeo Re honestly shared, “Grandpa, aren’t you scared? Of dying. To be honest, I’m a bit scared. But living is more scary.”

Later, when Hye Jin (Kim Shin Rok) contemplated ending her life, Yoon Gyeo Re earnestly commented, “Isn’t dying harder than you think? I’ve also tried numerous times, but it wasn’t that easy. I’m not trying to say something stupid like ‘live with the courage you have to die,’ but still, please don’t die.” As he got through to Hye Jin, Yoon Gyeo Re simultaneously touched viewers’ hearts with his seemingly harsh but subtly warm and thoughtful words of comfort.

The reason Team Genie started this wish-fulfilling project: “When you need others is your final moment.”

When the hospice’s youngest patient Im Se Hee (Park Jin Joo) asked Team Genie’s leader Kang Tae Sik why they started fulfilling the wishes of those with terminal illnesses, he responded, “The man I started this work with once said this. That everyone smiles and congratulates you the moment you’re born, but when humans leave, it’s so lonely. When you need others is rather your final moment.” Team Genie helps terminally ill patients depend on each other as they live out their final days.

Seo Yeon Joo’s warm words of comfort to Yoon Gyeo Re: “Being hurt is not something you have to hold in, but something you need to make known.”

After Im Se Hee apologized for making a big fuss to Seo Yeon Joo, the nurse calmly responded, “You did well. If you’re hurt, you have to scream out that you’re hurt. That’s how I know. Here, there’s no need for you to hold it in.” In that same moment, Yoon Gyeo Re happened to walk by, which Seo Yeon Joo noticed. She added for him to hear, “I’m not going to leave anybody to remain hurt. Being hurt is not something you have to hold in, but something you need to make known,” conveying her special way of comforting others.

The next episode of “If You Wish Upon Me” airs on August 24 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
