As far as small screen debuts go, model-turned-actress Lee Sung Kyung couldn’t have picked a more ideal drama last year than It’s Okay, It’s Love. She was surrounded by amazingly talented sunbaes giving it their all in acting out a truly difficult but rewarding story, allowing her the room to do her small part with more reassurance. Unfortunately her character was mostly irritating even if she also had her own mental health issues, and compared to the debut of D.O. in the same drama then as newbies she totally got overshadowed by his intensity and more fascinating character. That leaves the jury still out for me on Lee Sung Kyung, but the upside is she didn’t suck at all in her first role and gave off a unique and natural aura in her acting. I find her looks really eye-catching in a good way, both warm and sharp at the same time with an impish vibe. She’s in the pages of Singles magazine modeling a slew of bridal attire that are envy-inducing in how she pulls it off.
She’s diving into the production of the upcoming MBC weekend drama Equator’s Flower playing Kim Sung Ryung‘s daughter so that ought to continue her upward trajectory of working with great sunbae costars in roles that keep developing her experience.
