I do like Joo Sang Wook a lot, but right now I’m wishing that upcoming MBC Mon-Tues drama Glamorous Temptation was solely about the teens played by Kim Sae Ron and Nam Joo Hyuk. Part of it is being so indifferent to leading lady Choi Kang Hee, but mostly it’s due to my past viewing experiences which have skewed towards loving the childhood portions of long makjang type dramas way more than the adult main story. That’s not an unique opinion, and also explains the reason why breakout child actors in Korea are so famous in their own right.
From Autumn in My Heart to Stairway to Heaven to The Legend to East of Eden and even The Moon Embraces the Sun, so many dramas rope me in on the child portion only to drop the acting and narrative ball once the adults show up. I wouldn’t call Nam Joo Hyuk a good actor but Kim Sae Ron likely can make up for his emotive limitations, and as long as he brings the manly romantic intensity then it’s all good with me. Check out the latest stills, preview, and double set of drama posters featuring the teens and adult leads in identical set ups.
