There’s a new face and breakout star in MBC‘s currently airing Wed-Thurs drama Angry Mom, a feat in any situation but all the more impressive happening in a drama chock full of fantastic performances all around. Young actor Ji Soo, who plays high school thug Go Bok Dong, caught my eye in his very first scene in episode 1 and has subsequently made waves with all the viewers of this drama for his undeniable onscreen talent.
I described him off the bat as the love child of Jo In Sung and Yoo Ah In and the more I watch him the more that exact combination suits. He has a super tall build paired with these soulful eyes and pillowly lips, seeing him act is like rewinding the clock to Jo In Sung’s debut years and Yoo Ah In’s earlier more raw acting style. I’m also enjoying Angry Mom the drama despite it being wayyyyyy darker and less funny than I expected, the performances are wonderful across-the-board and the story is meaningful enough to check out. Spotting new talent like Ji Soo is merely icing on the cake.
