The upcoming episode of “if You Wish Upon Me,” a Wednesday-Thursday drama on KBS 2TV, has been teased!
The KBS drama “If You Wish Upon Me” is based on a real Dutch organization that grants the wishes of terminally sick cancer patients. Yoon Gyeo Re, played by Ji Chang Wook, is a character who has been tested to the breaking point by a challenging existence filled with hardships. But when he is forced to work as a volunteer at a hospice, he discovers that his life is altering in unexpected ways while still fulfilling the patients’ requests.
In the drama, Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung portrays Seo Yeon Joo, a tenacious and upbeat hospice nurse who is fixated on fitness, while Sung Dong Il plays Kang Tae Shik, the volunteer team leader of Team Genie.
In spite of Kang Tae Shik’s compassion and kindness in a previous episode of “If You Wish Upon Me,” Yoon Gyeo Re developed a deep distrust of him. His faith in Kang Tae Shik was particularly shaken when he saw him accept cash from a patient’s family and get into an altercation with gangsters. Kang Tae Shik made the decision to tell the truth when Yoon Gyeo Re’s last day with Team Genie drew near in order to prevent him from quitting.
The recently made public stills show the two men enjoying a bonfire in the hospice’s parking lot late at night. Holding the lamp badge, a representation of Team Genie, Kang Tae Shik smiles warmly toward Yoon Gyeo Re. Yoon Gyeo Re, on the other hand, has a blank expression as he looks at him, which makes one wonder what he is actually contemplating.
However, when Kang Tae Shik confesses, Yoon Gyeo Re is left speechless and the situation changes drastically. Yoon Gyeo Re hides his face, seemingly hurting much from what he has just heard. It will be interesting to learn what they discussed and whether Kang Tae Shik’s hope that Yoon Gyeo Re would be delayed came true.
The “If You Wish Upon Me” producers hinted that the “Today’s Episode” would reveal Kang Tae Shik’s motivation for visiting the hospice facility as well as the secretive history of Room 403. The reason Yoon Gyeo Re, who was always curt, will become so unsettled, is something to look forward to learning.
On August 31 at 9:50 p.m. KST, “If You Wish Upon Me” will premiere its subsequent episode.
