K-actor Byun Woo Seok in my current opinion of him is a case of reel to real. As second male lead in Record of Youth, he seemed to steal the spotlight in the promo posters from Park Bo Gum but when the real deal arrived he was flat and dull in the drama proper. When he tried to emote you can actually see him “acting”, very hard he tried to act, but goodness it just wasn’t quite there. Like his drama mom tried so hard to push his acting career, I feel he’s got to deliver a LOT more to show me he’s got improvement potential. That will come soon now as he’s signed on for a new drama as the second male lead in sageuk Thinking of the Moon When the Flowers Bloom. Headlining are Yoo Seung Ho and Hyeri, and somewhere is the joke that Yoo Seung Ho needs to built up for all the hard carrying he’s going to have to do.
