In-demand actor Ji Chang-wook is being pulled in to headline the upcoming Netflix original Korean series Annarasumanara.
A representative from the star’s agency Glorious Entertainment clarified on December 1, “The Netflix original drama Annarasumanara is one of the works Ji Chang-wook has been offered to appear in,” in response to reports that claimed Ji has already been cast in the project.
Annarasumanara will center on Yun Ai, an ordinary high school student whose biggest dream is to become a magician. Without any means to pursue it, however, she begins to cast her aspirations aside. Then comes along a mysterious magician at a fair who will inspire her to follow his path. The storyline is based on the high-rated webcomic of the same name by Ha Il-kwon, the famed manhwa (Korean term for comics) author of “God of Bath” (2011) and “Came across” (2017–2018).
Ji Chang-wook is best known for consistently delivering impeccable performances in his television drama projects, most notably in Suspicious Partner (2017), Melting Me Softly (2019), and Backstreet Rookie (2020). As of writing, no specific details have been released yet about the starring role that was proposed to him.
Meanwhile, Ji is currently gearing up for the premiere of his KakaoTV original series, Lovestruck in the City, alongside popular actress Kim Ji-won. The web drama is slated to drop this December 22 on the over-the-top (OTT) content platforms KakaoTV and Netflix at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. KST, respectively.
