Ji Sung

Ji Seong (born Kwak Tae Geun) is a South Korean actor. Kwak Tae Geun's parents were both educators, and they expected him to also enter the teaching profession. But in his sophomore year in high school, his father bought him a VCR and the first movie he rented was "Rain Man". Dustin Hoffman's acting left such an impression on him that he decided to become an actor, despite his father's objections. He later studied Theater and Film at Hanyang University. Kwak first auditioned for the 1999 campus drama KAIST, where he met screenwriter Song Ji Na. Song took an interest in the young upstart and wrote a new character for him, leading to his acting debut. Upon the suggestion of his then-manager, he began using the stage name Choi Ji Seong, then decided to drop the surname "Choi," and became known simply as "Ji Seong." Ji Seong met actress Lee Bo Yeong on the set of 2004 TV series Save Last Dance for Me, and they confirmed their relationship in 2007. They married at Aston House, W Seoul Walkerhill Hotel on September 27, 2013. The couple's daughter, Kwak Ji Yoo, was born on June 12, 2015.

    funny thing is when I saw him I protect the boss for the first time, I never liked him, then I saw him in KMHM and I was surprised and decided to see secret but didnt like his character and the saw defendant and I really liked him.. idk if its the douche rich guy attitude or if its the old kdrama era.. lol

    I'll admit I didn't really like him after only seeing him in Secret, but liked him with Hwang Jung Eum so decided to watch Kill Me Heal Me for my OTP. But fell for him there! ....Now I realize the only reason I didn't like him before was because of the JERK character he played in Secret. I'm glad I was corrected!

    The first drama I found with him was Entertainer but sadly I didnt really like it and I dropped it. Gladly, I watched Protect the Boss and I really liked his character there. My totally falling in love with him was in Kill me Heal me (my fav drama so far) :)) Secret is also a very good drama of his. And of course Defendant is one of the best drama. Wow My PS Partner is very funny. All I could say for him is that he is a very very very talented actor, the Korean Johnny Depp :)
