It looks like I can’t stop Hwang Jung Eum from hamming it up like she’s in a silent movie and needs to act by expression alone, but conversely Namgong Min is so exquisitely restrained that it balances the drama universe out somewhat. The latest previews are out for SBS Wed-Thurs drama The Undateables (Handsome Guy and Jung Eum), premiering next week as Switch (Change the World) wraps up its run. The drama is from the screenwriter of Tamra the Island which I am so very fond of which also tips the odds in favor of me having to check this out even as I cringe every time Hwang Jung Eum does her shtick onscreen. Maybe someone will get cancer early on and this drama will turn from slapstick to melo and Hwang Eun will stop mugging and screeching and transition to the sensitive crying she pulls off well. I can’t believe I’m actually advocating cancer for a rom-com, lol.
