This may really be the epic height of wooden acting heretofore never seen in K-dramas and if it’s going to happen then I’m all in to watch it unfold. Actress-singer Suzy has been busy promoting her solo music comeback from January until now and is reportedly winding down her music activities. The latest industry chatter is that Suzy has accepted upcoming K-drama Come and Hug Me (Come Hug Me or Come Here and Hug Me), with the leading man role offer out to Nam Joo Hyuk.
For all the bad acting criticism lobbed at both Suzy and Nam Joo Hyuk over the years, it’s a height of chutzpah for the production to cast them in a drama, almost like a middle finger to netizens. Who knows, maybe this reverse psychology thing will work and the leads will have turned a definitive corner thanks to acting with each other. Sadly this will not happen as Suzy’s agency swiftly refuted the news reports that she is starting filming soon, saying that after reviewing the offer she has declined doing the drama.
