I know the rating is not as good as we want…

However, in my opinion, Hyun Joong is trying his best to do what he need to do..

so no matter what people think or what people said…

I don’t care…

I think Hyun Joong is thinking the same too…

Try your best… and never regard…

Article about Hyun Joong’s acting:

Kim Hyun Joong who stars across in MBC Playful Kiss drama is once again surrounded in acting criticism.

Some netizens felt that Kim Hyun Joong managed to perfectly portray his role as Baek Seung Jo, while some others thought that Kim Hyun Joong made no changes in his acting and felt kinda sad.

On the 1st September at 9.55pm, MBC Playful Kiss was aired. Kim Hyun Joong was playing across as his arrogant and tough character Baek Seung Jo. On this day’s episode, Kim Hyun Joong’s acting consisted mainy of facial and eye expressions. Because of that, some netizens felt that Kim Hyun Joong seemed to not have made any differences with his Yoon Jihoo character like in Boys over flowers.

In the drama, Baek Seung Jo is a genius of IQ 200 and above and is a genius at all kinds, yet one who lives only for himself and does not care about others around him. For this kind of character, in order to bring out the solidity in him, Kim Hyun Joong chose to show it through his facial and eye expressions more than words.

After the broadcast, audiences left comments on the noticeboard giving ratings for the drama, whilst also, there were both negative and positive feedbacks left regarding Kim Hyun Joong’s acting.

A netizen said, “In terms of his manner of talking and expressions, it was totally Baek Seung Jo”, showing her anticipation. Whilst another netizen, “Baek Seung Jo is totally~ ill bred/rude. I don’t see Jihoo sunbae in anywhere at all. Very~~~handsome~~~” etc.

Negative comments were seen several places too.

A netizen, “I’m totally disappointed in Kim Hyun Joong’s acting. He seemed to have been reading his lines just like reading a language book. Because my anticipation was very high, it turned out to be a hugely disappointed Episode 1 for me. I hope for an actor who will develop better in future”.

Another netizen, “It’s supposed to be a refreshing and bright drama, but why is it so boring all the while? Why didn’t the male lead have any lines?”, revealing her own thoughts.

In today’s episode, it was an episode mainly focusing on introducing each’s character. Baek Seung Jo shows his tough and arrogant character while Oh Ha Ni shows her feelings for the person she fancies though she’s forever the last in school.


5th paragraph

However, Kim Hyun Joong’s acting that was the most anticipated for did not have much difference from before. It seemed to be like an upgraded version of Boys over Flowers, just with more lines, and the expressions were similar too.


4th paragraph

Netizens exclaimed, “Totally turned into a freezing cold and aloof Baek Seung Jo ne”, “Improved alot on acting ne, can see he’s really worked hard for it”, “He’s had discarded his previous soft image and portrayed the tough guy Baek Seung Jo aptly”, etc.


‘Improved alot’ VS ‘Still very awkward’

5th paragraph

With regards to Kim Hyun Joong’s acting shown on this day’s episode, comments left, There’s quite much difference in his expressions and seems quite stable”, “Did reach my expectations”, showing alot of positive comments. However, “Acting movements and lines were rather awkward”, displaying significant criticisms as well.


Article about Jung Somin’s acting:

Netizens are showering positive praises that Jung Somin’s acting in MBC Playful Kiss is refreshing.

Jung Somin is in love with Baek Seung Jo one-sidedly in MBC Playful Kiss which began airing on 1st September 9.55pm.

Because Playful Kiss was adapted from the original manga, there seemed to be no exaggerations to her acting. Jung Somin portrayed her character just like the original manga.

The twists and turns of her feelings in the drama was aptly captured, and for her humiliation scenes she had managed to portray it appropriately, it seems like she has had obliged to her Oh Hani character very much there.

Some netizens has even compared Jung Somin to Yoon Eunhye who starred across in Goong. Because Yoon Eunhye also earned her fame through such a character, it seems like Jung Somin would also develop into a good actress should she continue to give herself into the character.

Though Jung Somin is a newbie, her acting skills are outstanding. She’s been receiving attention as she is in the Korea National University of Arts – Theater Major. She only had ‘Bad guy’ as her only work which ended last August, but then immediately she rose to the female lead position with Playful Kiss.

Netizens expressed, “It was only that much that she has shown in the first episode, so I’m really anticipating what further sides she will show us in future. Work hard for a good drama”.
