    I think Ji sung needs to think about how to choose his next role and drama. He really have to change his role because he already played this kind of role in Kill Me Heal me. It was amazing drama that i have ever watched but again the same role same character getting so bored .
    he is handsome and very talented actor but he just wasting his acting skill such as the same old role. He needs to show another different character.
    I think if he play romance drama it would be Great. I just dont understand why he wont choose romance drama. I think its because he is now married. Hmmmm…….. so bad.
    But he really needs to change his role in a drama.
