K-actor Kim Soo Hyun has two modes for me – sincere young man and ACTIVATE mode when he acts. When he activates he just becomes another person, whatever character it’s that’s character and not Kim Soo Hyun. That’s why I remember the names – Song Sam Dong, Baek Seung Chan, Do Min Joon, he takes a well-written role and makes it shine by his performance. The first character stills are out for his upcoming tvN drama It’s Okay to Not be Okay and the slightly dorky hair style notwithstanding I already see the outlines of the personality of this role. Hardworking, open and serious, there’s a grit to him likely coming from being the breadwinner for the family and taking care of his older brother with a mental handicap. I can’t believe it’s been 5 (!) years since his last drama Producers but he can afford to take his time and his last two cameos in Hotel Del Luna and Crash Landing on You have been perfectly rendered and timed releases to stir anticipation for a full return.
