I have such an unhealthy drama viewer crush on Song Yoon Ah right now, and it’s been years since the Hotelier days. She wasn’t even my female lead crush in On Air, for whatever reason I liked Kim Ha Neul better there even if I liked Song Yoon Ah and Park Yong Ha‘s coupling more. I’m sure Song Yoon Ah was great in her award winning performance in tearjerker Mama and she garnered great reviews in dense political drama Assembly, but since I skipped both those dramas it’s now in The K2 where I’m fully reminded of the greatness that she is capable of. She’s out-acting everyone by leaps and bounds and commands the screen with her steely intensity such that she gets my sympathy even if she’s not a blameless character in the web of power play strung around all the characters. If Choi Ji Woo is going back to being cute and bubbly, Song Yoon Ah is aging gracefully onscreen as a force to be reckoned with. Her spring 2016 pictorial in Marie Claire showcases her spare effortless grace.
