Okay, for anyone wondering how well Junho is doing in MBC sageuk court drama and romance The Red Sleeve Cuff, just go watch yourself. Because he’s just phenomenal, as good as a young actor can hope to achieve in a serious sageuk setting. He holds his own against the veteran heavyweights, he generates young energy as the prince, and he makes all the moms and grannies swoon from his precise diction and crisp enunciation. There is a sageuk speaking cadence that needs to be learned through acting, and the only way to get around it is if the sageuk drama is a fusion or intentionally wacky so not to be taken as seriously. Otherwise every actor and actress gets the same lens from which to judge the delivery and so far through 4-episodes Junho is getting effusive praise. I rarely see such uniform opinion and it’s especially meaningful I think for him because he’s an idol turned actor that had to overcome that hurdle to be taken seriously.
