Actor Ji Chang Wook, who is currently basking in the success of The K2, is likely to star in SBS' upcoming drama "Be Careful of This Woman." A representative from SBS told KPop Herald that the actor is yet to make a final call. Weightlifting Fairy Lee Sung-kyung has also been approached to be the female lead.

The drama is the sequel to SBS' high budget series "Saimdang, Light's Diary" and is likely to be aired in May. Ji Chang is fresh from the release of his crime thriller "Fabricated City," which also marked his first feature film as the solo lead.

The film narrated the story of a gamer who is framed as the prime suspect of a shocking crime: the rape and murder of a high school girl. With the help of his fellow gamer Demolition and a hacker, he sets out to uncover the truth and clear his name. Directed by Park Kwang-hyun, this action-crime thriller also starred Shim Eun-kyung and Ahn Jae-hong in important roles.

On the other hand, in a recent interview, the actor revealed that he would like to regulate his lifestyle after joining military enlistment. He is likely to begin his service this year. In a recent interview, as reported by Soompi, the actor said that he has been working non-stop over the years and military would give him the required time to regulate his lifestyle and recharge the energy levels.

He also revealed that he could only get a third class rank for active duty in the physical exam due to his poor vision. The Healer actor is planning to get a lasik surgery done and retake the exam for a first class rank. "Going to the military is a must for any Korean citizen. My friends and people around me enlist, too, so I don't feel regretful or anything," he added.
