    I am personally very torn between Yoo Seung-ho telling Aji 3 he loves her in tears, and Lee Jong-suk begging his role model not to die.

    what a surprise but Yoo Seung-ho. I can’t even find him attractive when he cries, I’m too busy being emotional about his pain. I nominate Yeon Woo‑jin for his tears in 7DQ so that I’m not 100% biased.

    YSH, only because I’m recently watching INAR and his crying is so painstakingly beautiful!

    For now, Yoo Seung Ho. I felt that pain, man. :(((((((

    But I also want to add in Gong Yoo and Lee Min Ki, their cries (even though I’ve watched the scenes multiple times) always makes me cry.

    different career directions between his plans and the company’s based off what i read and what he said during his radio star guesting around december.so far i haven’t read anything that his plans were different from Infinite’s plan as a group.

    I read somewhere (probably comments on Soompi) that Hoya left Woolim Ent (is that his previous agency?) because he wants to pursue a career in acting, in addition to music. He’s signed somewhere else now.

    Also, it seems he said he wanted to pursue a solo career from the very beginning. Maybe – haaha this was a couple of months ago right?

    2

    He’s had some injuries that make it difficult to stay in Infinite, when his position there is ostensibly lead dancer. I think it was decided it was better for him to focus on acting than keep hurting for the group. All the members are really sad…

As @renebean pointed out earlier, I accidentally posted a picture of the wrong Kim Jong-hyun. I\’m sorry if I offended anyone – whilst I\’m not really a follower of SHINEE, I\’m still saddened by their leader\’s untimely death and hope they (as well as his family, other friends, and his fans) are coping okay.

    He’s not the leader either, but that gave me a decent chuckle through my sadness so thank you. He was the most at home on talk shows so he often seemed like the leader, easily overriding the hosts in guiding the group. He was the lead vocal but Onew is the leader.

    You know I want to scream JOY seeing as how much I loved TLAHL and her in it but I know that acting wise, she was still green.. (and I haven’t seen Chae Seo Jin and Bona’s shows)..

    Choi Ara was good but Kim Se Jung was the best when it came to impact..

    So my final pick is Kim Se Jung 🙂

    Bona in Girls’ Generation 1979. I can’t believe she was the same (but stilted) actor in The Best Hit. So for that, she wins my vote!

The casting of the Rich Man, Poor Woman remake is making me legitimately sad. Ha Yeon-soo is spot on, but everyone else is all wrong!

    Finally somewhere to vent about it. I agree, ha yeon soo seems like perfect for the meek secretary role, but can you believe this, after that iconic role of shin oguri and his hysteric performance, they had to go with an idol with no acting skills whatsoever? His role made this show work for me and I think I binge watched for two days straight. I can’t with this, flipping table and everything. -______-

      Yes, a comrade! Suho can’t possibly play Shun Oguri’s role – firstly because he’s a wooden actor who I can’t see mastering all of the character’s quirks, but secondly because he doesn’t look the part! He’s too young! How is he supposed to play a wealthy bachelor who raised a company by himself?? There’s a limit to the extent that the show can suspend belief! And then they cast Kim Ye-won in Saku Aiba’s role, which pisses me off because it tells me that they’re going to make her character mean and annoying in this version. I mean, when has Kim Ye-won ever been cast as a nice character?

      1
      1

        Hehe, <3. I know right, Suho lacks the maturity and wise look that shun oguri had, also agree with what you said. For someone who lived and died for the company, and the epic expressions of not eating, sleeping, and working like a mad person for days on a row, pulling off all-nighters, I doubt suho can even come anywhere close. It's like they insulted shun oguri by casting Suho..I would have been satisfied with even a decent underrated/ or unpopular actor. And yes on kim ye won, for one second I thought she was playing the heroine lol, which I wouldn't mind honestly. I don't think she lacks anything in the heroine compartment to play a secondary role for over and over again.

          I really hope this show doesn’t tank, just so it won’t be a complete disgrace to the original! I think I’ll be leaving miserable comments about this even more in the future. -_-

    I love him in Shopping King Louis – in another actor’s hand, the titular character can be so off-putting but In-Guk portrayed the character with such nuance that I can’t help but fall in love with him. But my vote goes to I Remember You coz this show made me noticed him, resulting in me binged-watching all his previous dramas.

    #1 I Remember You #2 King Louis I haven’t seen the others.lol King of Savvy is getting pretty high on my ‘later’ list. Has any one seen the No Breathing movie? I was reading an article with Lee jong-suk and he commented on SIG natural acting and strong swimming.

    And Tao Tsuchiya was completely miscast for My Little Monster. And they’re making a drama adaptation of Princess Jellyfish without Suda Masaki. I feel the Drama Depression coming on.

        Maybe they’re going to make him younger. Although, age has never stopped kdramas before, just look at the mess that was Hospital Ship’s casting. I haven’t sent the original though, but I think the story sounds kinda nice.

          It was great! That’s why they should leave it alone! I think the industry should be focusing more on creating new and interesting content than re-hashing what has already been done and done well.
