I'll be getting back to My Girl soon. I was sick so I was sleeping most of the time. And then I wanted to catch up on a couple airing dramas (Moon Embracing the Sun and Shut Up Flower Boy Band specifically. EVERYONE should watch the latter...not so much the former). But for now, I going to continue to inch closer and closer to finishing this meme. =)

Day 21 and Day 22: Your Worst Actress and Your Worst Actor

This was actually kind of hard. I tend to hate the character or the drama, not necessarily the actor. And I'm pretty quick to forgive bad acting in favor of other positive qualities. Anyhow, after some deliberation I have my two. No offense to them personally but they are not my favorites.


Lee Soo-kyung

Lee Soo-kyung is one of the very few actresses who has consistently annoyed me in every role. I first saw her in Soulmate where I completely despised her character (might be the biggest hypocrite I've encountered in any drama). I mean, she actively annoyed me with her insipid, whiny and rather weepy portrayal of what was supposed to be a "modern woman." She is a large part of why that drama is incredibly overrated to me. But I was willing to give her another go. I watched another of her dramas--Lawyers of Korea. And while the drama didn't irk me at much as Soulmate, she was the same. She takes her roles and sort of makes them cutesy and air-headed. It's like every time I've watched her act, she adopts the same mannerisms and lispy voice and I pretty much want to run away. Kudos to those who like her but I just can't bring myself to.


Kim Hyung-joong

So I know that this guy has like legions of fans. I mean, he's an idol so that's bound to happen. But you know? I thought he was horrible in Boys Over Flowers but conceded that no one was going to touch Lee Min-ho in that production. So, I watched Playful Kiss with the hopes that his acting might've improved. Yeah, no. He is like a robot in both of his roles and unless you have some personal charm (which he's yet to display in his dramas), I can't stand it.

I haven't seen Lee Soo-kyung in any dramas yet but yea...Kim Hyung-Joong is not the best...I am hoping to see him get a differnet type of role...I couldn't tell if he just sucks at acting or if they just keep giving him robot like roles.
