K-netizens Do Whiplash in Praising Song Kang’s Latest Visuals While Still Lamenting His Prior Acting Performances

I’m glad I have some knowledge of K-pop because I know that groups have a Visual, i.e. the girl or guy who is the best looking but not the best at the actual singing/performing stuff. But in a group it’s fine because the others pick up the other elements, so when it comes to acting one can’t be a Visual alone and not deliver the needed personal performances. I thought K-netizens were by and large totally over Song Kang, every single drama he’s in all I hear is criticism some valid and others seemingly taggling along. So it’s weird to see K-nets fawn over him as they did in his CF appearance this week in Seoul where it’s just gushing about his super small face and incredible body physique. It’s like netizens forget he had all that but still couldn’t act according to them hence all the harping on him. I think he’s actually good enough but got too much exposure too fast and also too hyped so it’s best to ground oneself and start again with solid footing. At least he now knows K-netizens think he’s incredibly good looking when not acting.
