If the rest of the members of boy band Infinite want to get into acting, I’m game to give them a try since 2014 has been quite good to the few who have. L (Kim Myung Soo) has been acting even before this year but all his earlier acting gigs have been nonstarters as far as I’m concerned. Whether it was The Master’s Sun or Sly and Single Again, at best he’s inoffensive and worst he’s plain dreadful. I still don’t think he has the thespian gene or potential but after My Lovely Girl at least he’s shown himself to be pleasantly fun to watch in the right role.
An improvement is always commendable. Best part was being the only likable human character in that drama. His group mates Woohyun and Sungyeol costarred together in Hi! School: Love On and I also quite liked their screen presence and raw appeal. Leading lady Kim Sae Ron acted circles around them both but what they lacked in ability was made up somewhat with earnestness. A few of the boys are featured in a Star1 spread for the holidays that capture their engaging appeal, not to mention right now I’m totally a sucker for stuff with straight up holiday cheer.
