Ji Chang-wook yearns for an ordinary life in new ‘If You Wish Upon Me’ trailer

The new melodrama premieres next month

South Korean television network KBS2 has unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming K-drama If You Wish Upon Me.

Starring The Sound of Magic’s Ji Chang-wook, Girls’ Generation member Sooyoung and veteran actor Sung Dong-il, KBS2’s upcoming K-drama If You Wish Upon Me is set in a hospice care facility for terminally ill patients.

Ji is set to lead the series as Yoon Gyeo-rae, an ex-convict who volunteers at the hospice facility after spending his life in and out of orphanages, correctional facilities, and prison. Meanwhile, Sooyoung and Sung star as fellow workers at the hospice, who begin to bond with Gyeo-rae as they care for patients together.


In the new trailer, Gyeo-rae looks forlorn as nurse Seo Yeon-joo (Sooyoung) asks him: “Have you ever experienced happiness, even once in your life?” A flashback of Gyeo-rae’s life appears, where is frequently involved in fights, and he answers, “no, I haven’t had anything like that,” before wondering how his life turned out this way.

“I just want to live a normal life like everyone else,” he says in a shaky voice before bursting into tears. “Isn’t that okay?”, shouts Gyeo-rae.
