In SBS dramas this year, Park Yuchun, L, Yook Sungjae and other idols-turned-actors(or acting-dols) have been active in displaying steady acting abilities. Although they had shown somehow lacking acting abilities in their first acting challenge, they are receiving favorable reviews from the public mass with their acting that’s growing day by day.
There are a lot of idols who are challenging acting as ever. It seems it’s another breakthrough made in the life expectancy of a short ‘idol’ profession. And though they have been embroiled in ‘foot acting (T/N: bad acting)‘ in the beginning, acting-dols have shown the pretense of developing bit by bit and are emerging as true actors.
Boy group JYJ’s Park Yuchun undertook the role of Choi Mugak, a detective who cannot feel his sense of feelings with a sudden accident in ‘The Girl Who Sees Smells'(shortened ‘TGWSS’) that finished airing past May. Park Yuchun was well-received through dramas ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal'(2010), ‘Rooftop Prince'(2012), & etc. challenging acting. In ‘TGWSS’, we got a glimpse into the possibility of him as an actor moving between action and romance.
