Welcome back to the third day of the 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge! Today’s question is:
Actress(es) that proved you wrong about their acting abilities.
Once again I’ll point to City Hunter. It was my first introduction to Park Min Young. Now, it could just be that this drama was the second drama I ever watched, but I
loved it. Like it holds an extremely special place in my heart loved it. I keep wanting to watch it again, but I’m afraid that it will loose it’s magic. Anyway, Park Min Young’s character was written to be a strong woman, and I thought that the character concept was fantastic. However, Park Min Young might not had completely pulled that off, not in as convincing a manner as I would have liked.
Next we met in Sungkyunkwan Scandal. Her character was adorable and smart, but she was pretty similar to the character in City Hunter. At least to me. Now, that’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy her or her character portrayal, but I had wanted at least a little more depth brought to the screen.
Then, in comes Healer and totally knocks my socks off! Seriously! She was amazing! There was so much more truth and depth to her character. It felt real, not just a pretty shallow girl who was attempting to portray a deep and rich character. I’m not sure what was different exactly, or if it was as simple as Park Min Young maturing. Whatever the case I was pleasantly surprised by her in Healer!
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.
