It’s rather ironic for me to see Jung So Min paired up with Im Shi Wan, because they are almost opposites in how I perceive their acting. Min Min is the queen of 101 natural expressions, so vivid and candid without coming across as gummy or overacting. Shi Wan has at most one and a half expressions, and I’m rather befuddled by how he parlayed a really lackluster performance in The Moon that Embraces the Sun into a burgeoning acting career. Oh well, he’s cute and harmless enough, and I do see some potential, so keep working on it, kiddo! Currently the two of them are starring in the daily sitcom Standby (anyone watching? how is it?), and last month they filmed some super adorable pictures together that brought a smile to my face. I miss Min Min dearly, and look forward to her next prime time drama, whenever that comes along.
