Japanese Press Gushes for Ji Jin-hee

    June 12, 2007 07:25

    Actor Ji Jin-hee, just back in Korea after a promotional event in Japan, is the subject of profuse praise in Japanese newspapers, including Asahi Shimbun and Fuji Sankei Shimbun.

    In an article last week, the Asahi Shimbun called Ji the "trustworthy man from 'Daejanggeum' (A Jewel in the Palace)." Citing a survey by a Japanese weekly, the newspaper said Japanese career women called Ji's character Min Jung-ho from "Daejanggeum" the "ideal type" and compared the actor with his soap characters.

    The Fuji Sankei Shimbun released an in-depth article about Ji's human side with the headline, "The sincere and honest man among men, the top star of Asia visits Japan." The newspaper explored Ji's filmography including "Daejanggeum" and talked about his upcoming project "Cain and Abel."

    After all that attention, Ji is due to return to Japan with Yoon Kye-sang, Jang Hyuck, Jo In-sung, and Cha Tae-hyun for the "Korean Wave Romantic Festival 2007", which will surely enhance his stature as a leading star of the Korean wave. Meanwhile, Ji is preparing for the drama "Cain and Abel" which tells the sad story of two brothers who square off as killer and cop.
