It dovetails nicely to do a post on Han Groo‘s recent pictorial for Nylon magazine at the same time news comes out of her potential next acting project. I like her a lot but don’t quite love her (yet), she’s arguably one of the better actresses of her age group but still needs a breakout role. I found Marriage Not Dating good when it was funny and then thoroughly draggy the rest of the way. Didn’t help that I disliked her character and only stuck around for male lead Yeon Woo Jin.
I have a feeling she’ll rocket up my list once she plays a female lead I love, which might be the case soon as she’s considering the offer for MBC’s upcoming fantasy sageuk Scholar Who Walks the Night. Her leading man won’t be Park Hae Jin, who has officially turned down the offer to be the titular vampire scholar, nor will she be reuniting with Yeon Woo Jin who is off doing the weekend drama Divorce Lawyers in Love. She’s be silly not to take this prime time leading lady offer and hopefully parlay it into bigger and better things even if the drama turns out to be Records of a Night Watchman level silly.
