I skipped 2017’s dark and serious OCN drama Save Me which by all accounts was solid all around and garnered raves for female lead Seo Ye Ji. For me there were two actresses who changed my opinion for the better last year in Chae Soon Bin and Lee Se Young and I think had I watched Save Me then Seo Ye Ji may have joined this group. All three have cut their chops starting out as the unlikable or forgettable second female lead and sometimes that impression is hard to shake so it’s a testament to getting elevated to female lead and proving to deserve the promotion. Seo Ye Ji may get her biggest profile drama lead to-date if she accepts the offer for tvN legal drama Lawless Lawyer opposite Lee Jun Ki, playing the law firm manager to Lee Jun Ki’s fist first law second lawyer. I also love Seo Ye Ji’s recent clothing CF, the soft pink backdrop with cherry blossoms is so charming and she really shines whether its a lingering look or a bright smile.
