How do you feel about this?
uhmmmmm…. ok, I guess!
I love both actors, I think they’re amazing. However, like many other kdrama fans stated, I am worried about casting Ahn Hyo Seop as the lead in this drama especially opposite Park Bo Young who is an amazing well established actress that can do well in any role you put her in.
He’s still considered a rookie and has that rookie vibe to him so I am not sure about how he’ll work his way around a role in a law firm. Of course, the script outline hasn’t provided the characters age (yet) so I assuming he’s playing an older guy based on what I read.
The second issue I might end up having with this drama is if they try to make them both appear to be the same age, if this happened I’ll flip!
Ahn Hyo Seop might be hella tall but he has a youthful look and is 24 years old. Park Bo Young is five years older than him; she just turned 29 this year.
I don’t mind the age gap but I fear the script will try to convince me they’re the same age. Park Bo Young is short and cute and a lot of people don’t believe she’s 29 but the problem is with Ahn Hyo Seop who obviously gives off youthful vibes, you can tell he’s in his early 20s, so giving him a role for someone in his 30s isn’t really a wise choice.
It might seem as if I am complaining but I am a bit worried. I love both actors and was looking forward to their comebacks but the script outline is worrying me. I hope my worries vanish when we have more details.
Thus far, the script is actually very interesting and has the fantasy element to it. I have high expectations because of Park Bo Young, she chooses interesting scripts. The writer isn’t well known and only has two names to his/her credit so I hope he/she can pull it off.
