I would really be way more interest in upcoming KBS romance drama Black Knight if the leading lady were someone I thought was a better actress. Visuals just aren’t enough for Shin Se Kyung to really immerse me into a throwback type of romance drama that feels classic Hallyu and requires the appetite for copious amounts of emoting. The second teaser is out and all my eyes does is follow male lead Kim Rae Won and then cringe when Shin Se Kyung shows up and acts all klutzy whether falling off a grassy slope or walking in on Kim Rae Won showering. Black Knight has also gotten a intended to be swoony tagline Black Knight: The Man Who Guards Me and unfortunately all I want is for the bodyguard to fail at the guarding and then end up with the second female lead played by Seo Ji Hye. With that said, if Shin Se Kyung goes back to her The Girl Who Sees Smell performance then I’m all good and can happily buy this destined to be OTP pairing.
