Welcome back to the second day of the 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge! Today’s question is:
Actor(s) that proved you wrong about their acting abilities.
I had to think about this one a lot! Over the years that I’ve been watching dramas I haven’t watched that many with the same actor(s). Unless I really adore that actor, then I make it a point to find their works to watch. In these cases I definitely have my fangirl rose colored glasses on and so I forgive much of their weaknesses because of my love of them.
Then it hit me who I wanted to talk about! Now, don’t get me wrong. I love this guy so much I can’t even tell you how much I adore him. I first met Lee Kwang Soo in City Hunter, which was also the second Korean Drama I ever watched way back in 2012. I immediately fell in love with his character. Then I discovered Running Man and boy was I head over heels for him! He was even my very first Dongsaeng post! I saw him again, as an actor in Love on Air. He played a very similar character in both shows. I figured that this was his niche.
However, then I watched Kwang Soo in Puck! Holy cow! He was amazing! His character was a thug trying to make a little bit of a better life. I 300% believed that he was a tough guy and that you should not cross him. Such a completely different character than the bumbling techie in City Hunter and assistance in Love on Air. And utterly different than his Running Man persona! I was absolutely pleasantly surprised!.
Here’s the 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge if you are interested in joining! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s answers to these questions. And thanks again to POPdramatic for creating this challenge!
