Wi Ha-joon TV shows

1. The Worst of Evil

Ji Chang-wook and Wi Ha-joon are a match made in action heaven. Get ready to catch the mental battles between Ji Chang-wook’s character as a cop named Park Jun-mo and Ha-joon’s character as the DJ-turned-drug boss Jung Gi-cheol.

The Worst of Evil revolves around an undercover mission to take down the drug cartels in Korea, China, and Japan. If you have a thing for intense thrillers and aren’t fazed by scenes of crime and violence, then this one is right up your alley.

Stream it on Disney+.

2. Little Women

If you haven’t watched Little Women (which trended last year for its Singaporean actors and shooting locations), then you’ll find yourself at the edge of your seat with its thrilling plot. You’ll also be wondering and trying to figure out if you would trust Wi Ha-joon’s mysterious character, Choi Do-il.

Little Women gives a modern spin on the classic story. Three sisters (played by Kim Go-eun, Nam Ji-hyun, and Park Ji-hu) get entangled in a conspiracy involving the rich and powerful. If you love coming-of-age stories and murder mysteries, then this series is something you don’t want to miss.

Stream it on Netflix.

3. Bad and Crazy

You might have always connected Wi Ha-joon’s name to his top-notch fight scenes, but you’ll applaud the actor for his humourous scenes in Bad and Crazy. He takes on the challenging role of K, a guy who’s tough, at times childlike, and would do anything in the name of justice.

Wi Ha-joon’s bromance with Lee Dong-wook’s character is something that will entertain you throughout the show. Aside from this, you’ll also be impressed by his punches and stunts (many of which he volunteered to do himself).

Stream it on iQIYI or Netflix.

4. Squid Game

In Squid Game, — AKA the K-drama that blew up and garnered multiple nominations, awards, and recognition around the world — Wi Ha-joon has less screen time than the other dramas mentioned above. But he was definitely one of the scene-stealers in the show as he portrayed the police officer Hwang Jun-ho.

Squid Game tells the cruel tale of ordinary people playing children’s games to the death. It’s a social commentary that will make you contemplate various issues such as debt, unemployment, and more.

Stream it on Netflix.

5. 18 Again

If you need a break from all those dark and heavy dramas, check out 18 Again. (Spoiler alert!) Wi Ha-joon takes on the role of the sweet and dashing second lead character slash baseball player Ye Ji-hoon.

18 Again offers a heart-fluttering Korean spin on the popular American movie 17 Again. You can expect a lot of heartwarming and sometimes comedic scenes centred on love, family, and friendships.

Stream it on iQIYI or Viu.

Upcoming Wi Ha-joon dramas

Fans can look forward to more exciting dramas from this talented star. He will be reprising his role in Squid Game season 2. He will also be one of the cast members of the highly anticipated Gyeongseong Creature. And if you’re hoping that he’ll get a romance-centric drama soon, keep an eye out for Graduation (working title) and will reportedly star alongside Jung Ryeo-won (Wok of Love).
