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.

    The 1st time I saw him was in Protect the Boss, when I just started k.dramas, and I liked him, than I saw Secret, and he got better, so I watched all of his 3 new dramas and he keeps improving, trying different roles, and he always does an amazing job...

      Me too, everything about Ji Sung started with Protect the Boss, and I fell for his acting. Then Kiss Me, Heal Me came out and just blew my mind. I recovered but now Defendant is shattering my brain to pieces with his brilliance, excellent story, cast, ost and production. Ji Sung = Pure Awesomeness
