Im Ju Hwan in What’s Up would likely be my surprise Korean actor this year. Not sure how many times I’ve watched this Stupid Cupid, mostly because of Im Ju Hwan’s range of expressions. From a bad boy on the street, captured by music. His eyes were so expressive, harmoniously in tune with the music scores. You have to see when he cried. I wondered why I didn’t notice him before. Can’t wait to hear him sing, his friends are wary now that he wouldn’t sing, so THAT is interesting!
But this is not to be mistaken with the drama itself, still not sure how I feel. One thing though, the vocals in this drama seems pretty solid and that’s the benefit. It’s too early to tell, so still hang in there. Tonally, it’s realistic and bittersweet imo.
And this is probably the coolest of the year for me. Take a look at the cinematography, the editing, the acting/singing/dancing. Aww…just love. Like a dream sequence of a talented young man who can’t seem to get pass his nervousness in public. Why so cool?
