    Eman's K-Drama Actress Rule #47


    [​IMG]


    ----

    RULE #47

    "If the bloggers hate her. Eman will love her."


    ----


    1. Shin Se-Kyung

    [​IMG]


    The Bloggers

    "I've despised her ever since When A Man Loves."

    "Please lord cast anyone but Shin Se-Kyung."

    "When I see her face I just want to punch her."

    Eman

    "Prettiest actress I've ever seen."

    "I don't care if she cheats on the male lead by god I'm in love with her!"

    "Her character is such an entitled two-faced witch it makes me want to marry the girl!"


    2. IU

    [​IMG]


    The Bloggers

    "She's just a pretty face."

    "All she does is pop her eyes out all scene."

    "She's so fucking boring."

    Eman

    "What a pretty face!"

    "I'm cool with you popping your gorgeous eyes out all scene. Totally."

    "I haven't been so into the female lead since Shin Se Kyung!"


    3. Park Hye Soo

    [​IMG]


    The Bloggers

    "She totally lacking. Like it's like they pulled someone off the street."

    "Is this her first role? It's like it's her first role."

    "To be honest I was gonna like this show until she showed up. Oh well"

    Eman

    "God she's so refreshing!"

    "Is this her first role? Wow she's wonderful!"

    "To be honest I was gonna hate this show until she showed up. This is great!"


    4. Yoona

    [​IMG]


    The Bloggers

    "Another idol actress? Bleh"

    "It's like she's hasn't improved since her family drama 10 years ago"

    "It's just her looks. That's the only reason she keeps getting cast. Oh and SM."

    Eman

    "FUCK YES an idol actress!"

    "Yoona you're doing great keep it up! Loved your recent roles!"

    "Seeing you on screen is a godsend. Thank you SM!"





    Anyway.

    Anybody want to like any of these actresses with me and stick it to those bloggers?

    Ya’ll better not be hating on queen yoona. I just finished watching one of her dramas yesterday (the first drama I’ve seen with her in it) and she did well with it. It was the first time not watching some female lead having to be an annoying, awkward mess. This girl deserves a trophy.

    Shin Se Kyung was great in Six Flying Dragons, I haven't seen much of her work yet
    IU did a good job in Moon Lovers and honestly she's not that bad. I feel like sometimes people exaggerate how bad she is. Her facial expressions could use some improvements tho.
    The last drama I saw Yoona in was The K2 and again she wasn't that bad either, for me anyway she wasn't

    I've liked IU since I saw her in Scarlet Heart and have been looking forward to her future dramas since then.
    And I like Park Hye Soo as well, although I've only seen her in Introvered Boss. She indeed has such a refreshing and sweet face.

    You ended up finishing Scarlet Heart?

    I was totally in love with that show but I had to stop when I accidentally stumbled on a blog post that detailed the end. I couldn't invest knowing the future. :(

    No I don't have the stomach to watch Baekhyun being killed. The last six episodes are still in my tablet waiting for me to watch them.

    I really like Park Hye Soo. I just saw her in Introverted Boss and fell in love with her.

    I was skeptical of IU's acting skills until I watched Scarlet Heart. She won me over.
    And I am generally quite critical of Korean acting.
    Her role was not easy but she completely held her own, around a brilliant cast as well.

    I don't really understand the negative reaction towards her acting. I think her pretty face went against her.
    I didn't always like the character she played but as an actress she played her character very convincingly.
    And that's all I have to say about that.

    Ah not to be a downer or anything since this is such a sweet post but I guess there is a difference between liking someone because they're pretty and liking them for their proficiency.

    Shin Se Kyung is by far the worst actress I have seen the work of and I say this with zero ill intention or hate but it frustrates me how she can effectively ruin dramas for me. Her monotony drives me nuts which is the reason why I have just blacklisted her for future dramas.

    As for the rest they're all adorable actresses who've had good and fairly easy roles. I definitely don't see the basis of hate against IU in Moon Lovers. I think she did well for a rookie and managed to truly embody what her character was meant to portray.

    I've read ahead here and there. I also know Baek dies because I saw many Exo fan made videos where it is shown.

    Maybe I'll just finish this drama so I can move on

    Yes, there is certainly a difference.

    My post was intentionally superficial haha.

    I'll have to disagree with you regarding Shin Se Kyung however.

    While I don't believe her to be any sort of great thespian, I think she's more than capable, beauty notwithstanding.

    What have you seen her in?

    You mention being annoyed at her monotony.

    I definitely don't see that.

    Are you referring to her early lead roles, namely When A Man Loves and Fashion King?

    Many of her detractors seem to dislike her stemming from their hatred of her performance in those dramas.

    Her characters in those dramas were to much an extent "unlikeable" or had "unlikeable" qualities that didn't do Shin Se Kyung any favors for her approval with a segment of the public.

    If you haven't already, I recommend watching her in her later roles (from Blade Man on), where she plays characters that are less reserved and more animated.

    I particularly like her in Bride of Water God, but she's very good in all (in my assessment).

    I happen to also find her comedic skill exceptional (particularly in BOWG).

    In any case, we will perhaps disagree on her but that's okay!

    Thanks for your post!

    I always love to discuss k-dramas, even if we can't always agree on things.

    :)
