Taecyeon up for writer Lee Kyung-hee’s next drama

Taecyeon is in contention to star in the next drama by melo scriptwriter Lee Kyung-hee (Nice Guy; Will It Snow For Christmas; I’m Sorry, I Love You), and I’m pretty sure the appropriate response is: Noooooooooo.

The project is titled Wonderful Season (literally translated it’s “quite good times” but that lacks a certain punch) and is being prepared as KBS’s next weekend drama following King’s Family. Interesting that writer Lee is going for a weekend drama about a multi-generational family after all of her big hits have been miniseries, though if anything the weekend drama world could really use her skill at quick pacing and compelling characters.

The drama is also courting Lee Seo-jin (Grandpas Over Flowers) and Kim Hee-sun (Faith) to star, so it’s not like Taecyeon will be the sole headliner carrying the show. Still, I can’t buy into him as an actor no matter how hard I try; I have liked the vibe he brings onscreen (especially when he’s being cute and dorky, as in Who Are You or Cinderella’s Sister), but I’ve never been able to believe him in anything. Well, maybe being part of an ensemble will do him good.

Wonderful Season will reunite writer Lee with Nice Guy’s PD Kim Jin-won and plans to launch in February.

I totally agree. Barefooted friends is like meh..
It started out bad, then I fell in love with it during the Diving specail (I just love this kind of specials where artistes get to try new stuff and challenge themselves - e.g. Infinity Challenge long term projects like Rowing). Producing their own song wasn't so bad, BUT NOW they are just going to other people's house to eat. First few episodes were fine, then it just went haywire and draggy. This show needs to find the tone it wants to portray! Half a year is a long time to wander about >:( BUT I digress.

I love Yoon Shi Yoon! He needs to come out and act more. :)

Totally true. Guy has nothing but his body and his carefully crafted "adorkable" image to go on, but JYP is a genius at turning cr*p into gold. I just can't help wondering what strings JYP is pulling, or who Taecyeon is dancing attendance on, to keep getting all of these offers when the response to all his efforts so far has been lukewarm at best: a tarento only a fangirl could love.

Taec is my bias in 2PM...but I honestly just can't get behind his acting yet.

And all the dramas LKH has written, all the characters have strong personalities (of course a big part is because of the casting) so...gah! On one hand I hope that if this is more melo than comedy (who knows with it being a weekend drama)- that maybe Taec will show a different side with his acting since the roles he has played so far has had cute and/or dorky aspects. I just think he overacts and I don't know if it's because of the characters he plays or something else. *sigh*

Awww man, as much as Taec can be cute, I really don't see him character but rather him on screen. He's always Taec to me, no matter who he plays - just like Suzy. So I'm desperately hoping they rope in someone else. There's like tons of good actors who're free or going to be free next year. I'm hoping he doesn't accept.

Rain was never as mechanical as this guy, even in his debut, and he was fabulous in ALTK. But this guy.....no idea why he has an acting career, really.

If they absolutely must hire an idol, why not go for one who isn't so abjectly terrible/limited? Especially for a drama by Lee Kyung-hee - to go from Song Joong-ki to, well, THIS, is a major downgrade.

I love him as Taecyeon, never as the character he's portrayed. He's the likable type, just like Yunho. They're very warm and nice like when they played on running man or other shows. I think that's why people keep giving him roles, because we love the real they, and even if I don't like his acting I can still watch him :D

I think you've described his charm well, Mar. As a person, Taec is loveable and a hunk in his own way. He is always Taec in the dramas, never the character he is playing. Sort of like Suzy - she is always Suzy dressed up for a role, and not the character (Gu Family Book, for example).

It is in the same way that I give them both an unexplainable pass as actors. I like them so much more than I hate their acting maybe?

I, too, like him very much as an actor. He brings unequivocal masculinity to his drama, is quite articulate on screen, works hard like a workhorse, and projects tomorrow's Korean men.

A surprising number of actors and actresses are always the same in every role. I do not yet know if Taecyeon is one of them. But if he is, it is the type of sameness that I won't tire of anytime soon.

Exactly! Song Jong Ki's stiff acting and limited facial expression made me stop watching the Nice Guy after the 7th episode. I'm okay if supporting actors aren't so good but for leading actors, they need to know how to deliver their emotions well!
Taecyeon is taking on the role of a supporting character so I have no problems with his limited acting skill. These roles help him gain experience and find his own system.

Stiff acting? Limited facial expression?
I know it is subjective to rate on a particular actor's ability to act, but this is a whole load of baloney. He was very decent in his role as Maru. Decent, at best, for some people. His performance was nuanced and subtle. What is acting to you? Excessive crying and shouting? Over-the-top display of emotions?

I agree. SJK was way more than a pretty boy in that role. He demonstrated a lot of groth as an actor.

0

I didn't expect everyone to agree with me because like you said, this matter is very subjective so take it easy.
After all what he had been through, I expected Maru to have a burning hatred and absolute determination to carry out his revenge. I didn't see any of that. All I saw was a few long stares into the camera and some moments of stillness that were supposed to mean he was concentrating on forming new plan/next step,etc... And I haven't seen much of his prior works to conclude whether or not he has improved but for this particular role as Maru, I didn't see the kind of acting I wished to see. Excessive crying and shouting? Probably a good indication of fine acting if the role calls for. But as Maru, they weren't necessary.
I didn't even mention anything about the correlation of his face with his acting so don't bring in any unnecessary drama.

0

Fair enough. But it’s misinformed to call his acting stiff, though he may be underwhelming to some people. He was not unnatural/rigid in his movements and actions in the drama, nor was his facial expressions stilted like one would expect from a rookie. It is not that he has limited facial expressions either, you are presupposing that he as an actor is incapable with the ‘need to know how to deliver their emotions well!’, when he was directed to emote this way. I wasn't trying to create drama.

He's had multiple chances. This is his fourth drama, so he's far from a 'basically a rookie' by now, he's just not good at acting, and certainly not deserving of lead roles no matter how cute he is on variety.

And there are plenty of rookie idol actors who are better than him, so let's not insult them by using newbie status as an excuse for whatever Taecyeon does onscreen.

and who said that all idols cannot act? This is not about "All idols suck at acting" reaction. This comes from seeing in more than one role and him sucking at it. The ones you listed at least did improve. The only compliment i'll give him acting wise is that he is more tolerable than Yunho.

He's NOT a rookie though. He's had a number of drama roles already. It's not even about his idol status. It's the fact that he's just not good in acting. Plain and simple. You know, like Kim Hyunjoong and my beloved Yunho oppa, who, bless them for trying so hard, are just not cut out to be an actor. Idol or not.

lol I think one Song Seung Hun is more than enough.

If a crappy idol actor wants to improve they should take acting lessons instead of making the audience suffer.

Not everyone actor, idol or not, is amazing to start with but there are some idol actors who have promise like IU or Eunji or people like Uee or Yoochun who are solid actors in their own right. Nobody complains about them. Then there some who should just give up like Yunho, Kim Hyun Joong and Taecyeon. Not everyone is meant to be an actor.

I've read a lot of criticism about Song Seung Hun's acting abilities but I don't think he's such a bad actor. He just can't do romantic leads. He's utterly gorgeous so he keeps being cast in romances but he just doesn't project any warmth on camera. This has nothing to do with what he's like in real life, I don't know anything about that. But it has everything to do with what the camera picks up, like you can't take a bad still photograph of some people and can't take a good one of others. This has nothing really to do with a person's looks. Compare him to someone like, say, Oh Ji Ho who projects oodles of warmth and likeability on camera. It's too bad for Song Seung Hun. His looks work against rather than for him.

Taecyeon, however, just can't act. What the camera does and doesn't pick up has nothing to do with it. I watched Who Are You and I actually felt embarrassed for him. Kim Jae Wook kept me watching.

Sigh. I'm not trying to hate on Taecyeon because he seems like a nice guy but I don't consider this good news. I mean if he's got a smaller, supporting role, I could live with it but I still don't think he can carry a show yet. I constantly felt like he was overacting in Who Are You - he just seemed a little too broad most of the time. It just feels like he keeps getting big roles and I'm like whyyyyyyyyyyy? Bit parts are good, big roles are baaaaaad. I don't even find him attractive either so it's not like I can say I'll just look at his face and ignore his mediocrity. Anyway it's a weekend drama so I probably won't stick with it all the same. It's hard for me to commit to these 50 episode shows.

Taecyeon is not a good actor by any stretch of the imagination, that much is certain. I did find him endearing in Who Are You, though, so rather than his casting, my main problem with this latest news is: Weekend drama?! The 50-ep variety about multi-generation families?! NOOOO.

I was happy about Kim Hee Sun getting to do a Lee Kyung Hee drama, I liked Lee Seo Jin in Yi San so I have no complaints about the male lead either, but gah, 50-ep weekender. Excitement officially shot.

I was super excited when I heard LKH is going to pair up with KJW again. But less excited when I heard Kim Hee Sun is going to join, and now I think it's going to be a flop if Taecyeon signs up. Please, no. I really thought it's going to be the first weekend drama I could stand to finish, what with the combination of writer+director. What is up with trying to take on idols who are bad actors to play important characters in a drama? I was already so bummed out when Man From The Stars wanted Yunho to be second lead. It's a weekend drama, isn't it a given that the ratings are going to be high anyway?

The fact that Lee Kyung Hee's dramas require an enormous amount of acting talent to portray her layered, flawed heros..(sorry i love you, a love to kill, will it snow for christmas, nice guy amongst them all of whom had very expressive actors portraying them) i really don't think taecyeon should be the guy they're looking for.
I'm not a drama expert but even a dummy can see that vast difference. His lack of acting skill cannot possibly do the character justice.
I like the guy, and he seems nice. He's fine with me when he's playing the goofy guy. But when it comes to any of those emotional scenes (which is totally this writer's forte and written in about 90% of the show), he delivers like a dead fish. or like a robot, where his actions are mechanical and he is expressionless.

ilikemangos - exactly! One look at the roll call of actors who've worked in her dramas should be enough to tell anyone but the most delusional 'give him a chance!' fangirls just how unfit he is to tackle roles like the kind Lee Kyung-hee writes.

Who Are You tried to work around his lack of acting ability by writing a role tailormade to the little he can do (be cute and look earnest), and even then he didn't deliver. And Lee Kyung-hee has no reason to bend her usually far more demanding scripts backwards for an idol who can't act.

First time to hear about this weekend drama. I love love love PD KJW and there is definitely something about his directing style that works really well with LKH's writing. I think it is his subtle and suggestive camera styles. I really don't know how to describe it. Hah!

I'm not sure about weekend dramas and whether weekend dramas always equate to 50 episodes and more. But PD KJW and LKH's partnership is hard to miss.

If only....

If only I like any of those actors. But I don't. ;(

It's funny...reading all the comments. Acting and music are both art. Art is subjective. What one person likes...another can hate.
I think it's ok to say, 'I like his acting.' 'I don't like his acting.' 'I like his rapping,' ' I don't like his rapping.'
But...I think it's hard to say, absolutely, that he is bad at either, or absolutely good at either. It's totally a matter of taste. That's what the arts are about, taste and flavor.
Which makes me glad there is such a variety of actors and music. Everyone gets their itch scratched at one point or another. No actor is getting ALL the leads and no group/singer is number one ALL the time. :-)

I don't think it's hard at all to say Taecyeon is possibly the most wretchedly terrible actor I have ever seen on Korean prime time television.

Forget about all the leads, he shouldn't be getting any - and it's not a matter of taste, or of attempting twisted fanwanky logic to defend his lack of ability.

There are certain basic levels of competence even an artist is expected to meet, before the argument of "taste" is brought to bear. Does my 4-year-old's finger painting belong in the Guggenheim, or should I dust off my violin and scrape out a few solos at Carnegie? Please, no. Same goes for Taec. I still laugh when I think about that furrowed brow of concentration he had when he was supposed to be in a coma.
He gets the roles because fangirls like the pretty, and everyone knows it.

Well..I think if your 4-yr old starts getting offers to pay for his work....taste comes into play. And..if you start getting paid gigs for your violin.... Once they start getting paid and getting the jobs...it becomes taste. IMO.
And I'm not saying that you cannot ever state that one actor is better than another. It's just that when these actors/singers are starting to get these gigs...*somebody* likes them well enough.
I wouldn't call myself a fan of Taecyon...other than that I think he is very good looking and masculine. So, I'm really not arguing FOR him per se.

I'm glad; although he's still not a good actor in my opinion, he's definitely improved in Who Are You than Cinderella's sister (I haven't watched Dream High)

Sigh...more idols. I feel nauseated everytime an idol is cast in a drama. Cant they make an idol free drama like The Chaser? That was one quality drama.

Kiara - I have no problem with idols, Answer Me 1997 and Monstar were packed with them and they all rocked.

I just don't understand why they absolutely must push the idols who can't act into lead roles on dramas though - if they must cast idols, at least pick ones who can act. it's unfair to the ones who have the talent to lump them in with the ones who absolutely don't.

Well, 95% of them sucked. It's hard to avoid them cause every damn drama has to have one.

HE IS GOOD IN DREAM HIGH. GIVE HIM THE ROLE THAT MATCHES HIM.
He is not professional actor that can act any scene but it is good to see him on screen.
Please pair him with someone cute like Suzy.
