TOP to romance Shin Se-kyung in Tazza 2

Sooo, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. I’ll let you decide which is which.

High-stakes-gambling-centered Tazza has been a manhwa, a movie, and a drama, and now the property is circling back for a second round on the big screen with Tazza 2: Hand of God. As was previously teased, the lead role will in fact be played by Choi Seung-hyun, aka Big Bang’s TOP, who is now confirmed for the movie. And joining him will be Shin Se-kyung (When A Man Loves, Fashion King), who has been announced as his love interest (with the usual round of “she’s finalizing contracts, no she’s just considering, she’s not 100 percent confirmed”).

TOP has come a long way on the acting front, improving from project to project; I’ve got a good feeling about his budding acting career. Shin Se-kyung, on the other hand… prompts knee-jerk hatey reactions in me. I can’t help it. She’s just so… smirky and smug. Which would be more tolerable if she were actually good in her roles. Sadly, her default mode seems to be naive, pure, blank-faced, victim Candy robot. No thank you. (Also, this pairing retroactively makes this even funnier.)

The movie and the drama series centered around the same main characters (just recast with different actors—Go-ni was played by Jo Seung-woo first, and then Jang Hyuk), but Tazza 2 won’t bring those same roles back; TOP will play Go-ni’s nephew. The plot will follow the story of Part 2 of the manhwa series, so there is an existing narrative already in place. MY question: What comes next, Tazza 3 the movie, or Tazza 2 the drama sequel (which would really be the fourth Tazza)? So many Tazzas.

Directing will be Kang Hyung-chul, who did a pretty solid job filming heartwarming comedies Speedy Scandal and Sunny. The film will complete casting soon and begin filming before the end of the year.

Love love love TOP .... but the leading lady urgh..I've got similar reservations about her acting abilities. Hoping against hope that her role in this one will be likeable

Me too!! The good news is definitely about TOP's role. Hee <3

...and yeah.. soon as I saw the headline of TOP's (supposedly---I say supposedly because I'm still hoping for a cast change) leading lady, I was already thinking (why??) of a slew of adjectives (none too friendly) about her, worried that I might induce some negativity from her fans. But eh, JB already mentioned what I wanted to say, so...

Thanks JB! Hee <3

Still hoping this pairing will end up good. :)

I'm looking forward to seeing TOP in a leading role, but opposite SSK?
She's such a Debby Downer - either looks sulky, angry or just plain blank. At least she made me laugh with her mediocre acting with Rain in R2B.
I just don't get why she seems to be a top pick for so many dramas. Maybe she's on a lower pay scale?

I agree with your good news and bad news. Always half-half with casting news lately. :)

It seems this kinds of roles, tough,charismatic with inner demons persona, are right up his alley. And I thought he was impressive in Into the fire and now the trailers for his up-coming film are looking good. While, Shin Se Kyung just fades with every acting job she takes. Kinda harsh, but she disproves the notion that ALL child actors are gonna be acting gems when they mature.

Okay, let me process the whole thing:
TOP, and any movie he might star interest me and hearing that he's gonna be in another movie is a thrill and also a very hood advance his career (I also want to listen to him singing).
Shin Se Kyung... after watching her in R2B which also starred Rain and our puppy, noona killer Lee Jong Suk... mmmm... I think I agree that she, I quote you, Javabeans, "Candy robot". It's bad enough to be a Candy, even worse, Candy robot.
Geez...

I've only been watching K dramas for a few years but SSK hasn't changed in any of the roles I've seen her in. I mean her expression. She is like Im Soo Hyang.

Or the older version with the same expressions- Kim Mi Kyung. Eun Sang's mother in The Heirs.

I feel like if I fast forward SSK in 20 years she would be like KMK.

When I TOP's name I was like YAY! And then I kept on reading and went... Meh? I liked TOP, I love how he had improved over the years and I am looking forward to get Alumni here. It's just sad that he had to be in the same movie as SSK... I just don't get that woman, I swear... She's like... Dead and deader with no expression. Her roles were all crying and blank face... I just... I really can't. I just hope she drops out and they cast someone better. None come to mind... But, I think anyone would be better than SSK.

Would've been better if they got the female lead from Sunny like Kang Sora or Min Hyo-rin. Didn't like SSK in TWDR, though from some of the comments I've read that's one of her better roles.

Unpopular opinion.......Honestly, i'll rather watch SSK acting than TOP she's not as bad as he his by a long mile and that's saying a lot....That boy is bad i have still yet to see what people see in his acting but i'm guessing it's mostly his looks other than that he sucks on ice.....

I'm with you on this one. I personally don't get the hype about TOP's "acting prowess". I've seen pretty much all his acting stints and although I can see improvements here and there, it's not like he is THAT spectacular to be put on a high pedestal to even consider acting alongside Shin Se Kyung, almost a mortal sin. She's not my choice for the lead actress either, but I was just kind of taken aback to read most of the comments here as if she's the worst actress of the bunch to be paired off with HRH TOP.

Oh well, we can all be blinded by the pretty, especially if he happens to have that sexy, deep voice and manly aura. Trust me, I'm almost blinded too. :D

Required fields are marked *

I have another unpopular opinion: I'm equally unexcited about both; I find each one's acting pretty much on the same level of shallow, one-note, unconvincing, and uncharismatic (yes, just because TOP has a deep voice doesn't automatically make him a charismatic actor).

Why and how does SSK keep getting cast in all these dramas and movies? It's not like there are no better actresses available or that her acting improves with each role.

I have theories but they may not be politically correct... And yes, she's awful. In a drama, I can focus on the other characters but as one leg of the pairing of a movie? Nope. Pass. Sorry TOP.

IMO, her best role was probably Queen Seondeok. (2nd is probably Tree With Deep Roots... but that's highly debatable in my family LOL my parents couldn't stand her while me & bro found her likable enough since she couldn't talk...) ^^

I'm not sure is if she is better (decent) in sageuks or is it because acting alongside veterans helped her.
I think she did better in TWDR, she had a bigger role and she was able to carry it.

She has been bad in modern dramas and some of her co-stars aren't exactly the best out there. I never thought I would ever say this but I'd take Seung Hun's eyebrow acting over her bland expressions any day.

I think she excels in sageuk that require restraint and subtlety but falls flat in modern roles which call for much freer and emotionally honest acting. She's so young that imho it's really unfair to completely write her off.

I'm not writing her off. I don't have any problem watching her in another sageuk with a couple of veteran actors. I did enjoy watching her with Jang Hyuk and the amazing Han Suk Kyu in Tree. That was also her 2nd time in a Kim Young Hyun sageuk so she must really like her.
I just think she is not ready for lead roles in modern dramas where she is expected to do more than she is ready for and when she is paired with someone like Song Seung Hun, she is basically on her own.

T.O.P is actually my bias. And yet, surprisingly I haven't watched anything in which he's acted yet. I was going to watch Iris at one time, but I guess I forgot? Don't get me wrong, I'm dying to see his acting and even if his acting sucks I'll probably stick around just to watch him and listen to his voice, so I'm excited I guess. :D

That was my reaction. Oh shin sekyung I hope you're playing a likable character this time. I really did enjoy her in tree with deep roots and I can't figure out if it was just bc the character was awesomely written and had maybe nothing to do with her acting. But top. I lub you.

I love TOP! I love BIGBANG and I think TOP's acting has improved. So I think he'll be good in this.

Shin Se-kyung has failed to impress me with her acting. She's just so bland all the time. And, I agree, she does seem smug and smirky. I hope she's not in this movie, and the role is recasted with someone else. Please.

I've not seen any of the Tazzas so I have nothing to go on. May still watch it.

If you're going to be happy about TOP being cast in something because he's eye candy and not necessarily because of his acting skills, I think it's pretty rich to bash Shin Se Kyung for her acting. You know, in the interest of fairness and all.

i have a similar opinion of shin se-kyung, and i'm so glad you said it. i disliked her starting from high kick. she came off as such a downer, and then fashion king escalated my dislike to loathing. i loathed her there so much i found myself sympathizing with jang mi-hee's enemy character and rooting for her to get the best of SSK. not good, right? lol

i realize it's all rather irrational, but i just don't find this girl at all likable, onscreen or off. from her voice to her facial expressions and mannerisms... she comes off cold and snobby, without much to back it up. i've never understood why or how she gets these leading roles.

i do remember her from queen seon-duk, when she played one of the younger versions of mi-shil i think? i think that was the first time i'd seen her, and i remember being impressed by her acting and her prettiness. perhaps she might be better suited for sageuks?

Yeah I'm not the biggest fan of Shin Se-Kyung BUT I do want to say that she had some pretty endearing moments in High Kick Through the Roof. For most of the series she was naive and kind to the point where you would get bored. But then an episode would come out where she would be HILARIOUS. I think people would like her better if she did comedies because she can actually be really funny. Unfortunately, there are only a few episodes of High Kick where her character is written doing funny things.

Yaaaay TOP! Do yo thang! Will be excited to see it even though I haven't seen any of the other Tazzas...and probably will not...I'll think about it. But, yaay. He really does improve every time, it's extremely pleasing to watch him on the screen & know that you aren't just there for his handsome face.

Haha, I am probably the only person who likes or feels neutral about Shin Se Kyung. It's that smirky smugness that makes me like her mostly because she gets all these sweet naive candy roles and plays them with that attitude. I find it hilarious. She's also not the worst I've seen. There are some I really can't watch, I feel but SSK isn't one of them.

Shin Se-kyung invokes the same reaction from me. I've watched her in some variety shows, and it definitely not the acting for me. It's her that is annoying, but I guess being a mediocre actress doesn't help.

Shin Se-kyung must have relatives in the business and that must be how she's getting these roles because she can't act for BEANS!! She's the first actor I really can't watch because of the bad acting. Most of the time, I just ignore comments that rag on bad acting but she is so bad it can't go unnoticed.
This will be one I will stay away from with a 10 ft. pole.

What's gotten into her? She was better in her earlier career. Even when she first appeared in RM she was this enthusiastic ball of fun (the eps she did with Cha Tae Hyun). She was hilariously full on concentrating and did the mission wholeheartedly that the others jokingly cut to highlight it to the camera. And then ff a few years later, she came to RM again but now she's this demure, annoyingly passive guest I always hate when RM feature one. And her on-screen persona from what I've heard also got progressively worse. Wonder if something happened to her...
