I think K-actress Han Ji Min is a more capable version of Shin Se Kyung to me, I don’t think they are consistently a good actress but when they hit on the right role it can be magical in how good they deliver onscreen. Shin Se Kyung is like a 2 out of 10 for me so far whereas Han Ji Min is batting a higher avergae of 5 out of 10. Her last drama Knowing Wife (Familiar Wife) was ahhhhhmazing in both her performance and the story, making me cry cry cry so hard and riveted to how the story will end in righting wrongs. Her next drama The Light in Your Eyes (Dazzling) which premieres this coming Monday on jTBC looks to hit my tear ducts via wrenching my heart in the same way – all about being good, helping others, and through it dealing with a fantasy conceit. Here Han Ji Min’s character finds a watch that lets her control time but when she does so she turns into an old lady played by Kim Hye Ja. The two are going to play the same role so that’s quite a challenge but I’m hopeful this will be yet another Knowing Wife type of sincere and hopeful drama.
