now the real game started . she was to stupid well now we see the real game
Can we agree that Shin Se Kyung can act, at least for this episode? Or is it the Kim Rae Won phenomenon at work?
She really isn’t good at acting…. she’s obviously acting….
it’s actually good that she is always casted in dramas with good cast and good storyline like the previous one too or else I’m not sure I can stand her acting.
i totally agree with you. she cant act. she has the same facial expression for everything!!
Availability and budget may have told on the final choice. I was mentally trying to figure out who would have been better at this role. I came up with Jung So Min, Park Shin Hye, Park Min Young, Yoona or Han Hyo Joo would have better. They have all just completed a drama or have many other concerns like modelling or fan meeting abroad. You also have to consider that your lead actor is 35 years old. So the under 25 year olds may not have the experience to carry the role and have the right chemistry with him.
Maybe “good” is not your adjective of preference for Shin Se Kyung maybe “serviceable” or “okay” are more appropriate to you. Let me see. The role asks for a beautiful young woman who has a pitiful fate. She needs to wear clothes very well because she is a dress horse here. That means she should look good in classic western clothing, young working girl clothes and the hanbok. Check. She can speak with her eyes as she is burned, knifed, battered and at the same time romanced and angered by an unmerited curse. Check.She accepts kisses well and has romantic chemistry with her leading man. Check. She has nuance as she shifts from period to period, from modern day to Joseon era. Check.
To me, she has the elements for the role of Hae Ra. If you consider her asking fee and availability, she must have been the actress of choice eventually.
hmm but at the end she could not pull of the evil look as “sharon” i didn’t buy it or was i comparing her to sharon idk
Thought, out was out here alone with acting ability.
I saw her in The Girl Who Sees Smells and The Deep Rooted Tree and I thought she was okay. Then I watched the beginning episodes of The Bride of the Water God and I decided not to proceed. My conclusion is that unlike veteran actresses like Ha Ji Won who will override a bad script or mismatched casting, Shin Se Kyung needs guidance and the right elements to perform well. In Black Knight she is supported by THE Kim Rae Won and the two immortals who are good at their craft. It also has dreamy location shooting that create the perfect backdrop. Considering the big budget poured into this drama, I suppose we have top notch directors and production crew in place, too. She’ll be okay in this drama.
Yes, she ruined “BOTWG”. She’s has a great support of actors here.
I thought it was the script and the poor characterizations.
agree it wasn’t just in botwg even nam joo hyuk didn’t shine as much as his other characters, the script was just bad they somehow made the lead so insignificant and helpless it was as if he was the support role
Yes i agree i hated everything in that drama for me she did normal what i hated more is the male lead character it was so bad or it didn’t suit nam joo hyuk
I thought she did well this episode. People criticize her a lot here but she’s not bad! She’s not going to win any oscars but she’s pulling off the role ok. She’s not great, but not the worst. If you guys want to see some good acting, the rookie actress in Just Between Lovers is pretty good in my opinion
I should check her out.
oh noooooooo!!!! eotteokhae
why this people keeps saying she cant act.then here they are complaining and they even dare to come and watch . bitching around means you have mental issue.directors wont take her as lead role if she doesnt and take note she dont go for audition.directors have keen eye whos who and whos not. they did not study abroad not just to pick kpop idols where they could just sit around and waiting the rising idols dont you think.dont get me wrong some kpop idols they nailed it.and guess what have mental issue will say oh im entitled in my own opinion yeah right in every drama shes in come on give me break!!!!!
Really !!! All I have to say Harvey Weinstein. Sure Directors try to find the right cast but its also about connections . When a producer says I want this girl in that’s why I pay you money then they are in. She is not horrible but she is a bit odd something feels wrong unnatural and her character is annoying . I feel the older actresses have strong impression on me many younger actresses don’t impress me much
There are so many things wrong with this comment..1) People have the right to watch whatever they want even if they don’t specifically like the lead/story since they might be watching it for other reasons + we’re free to do so? 2)Mental issues seriously?Just because someone has a different opinion from yours doesn’t mean they’re bitching around or have mental issues (obviously). 3) She’s not the worst, I’ve definitely seen worse.She just needs to work on her facial expressions a bit more.There are certainly better actresses out there, but she’s not horrible.
its not that has different opinion than mine .the intellectual capacity of understanding in each role.there are people if they heard such name such and such they think the larger the consensus the more likely people think its correct its misconception. they just keep dragging using this line of words im entitled in my opinion which is clearly enough why.And if they came for other reason they should not say negative to any actors.No wonder this kind of fans are one of the causes of depression to their idols.dont be a killer be saver.
I strongly agree that receiving hate comments is nowhere near okay, and it’s definitely hurtful in many ways.Sadly, all we can do is report these comments.However, being an actress/actor (being famous in general) comes with a lot of hate whether you’re good or not and everyone that gets in that line of business knows this.They shouldn’t be used to it, but they should at least be able to handle it since it’s their job.
dude not cool you can’t just say people have mental issues so easily i get you were trying to prove a point but some terms are just not right to use.
sorry about that just pissed me off.
i understand just be careful next time……thanks for understanding
Haven’t seen a woman get curved that good since Secret Garden. Kudos KRW.
OH HELL NO. We’re only 6 episodes in and she’s already doing this doppelganger act. Hae Ra get yo’ man. Don’t want this whole deception thing to go on very long , I might break someones jaw 🙂
Actually it could end being real good for HR, So Hoo story from here because if Sharon kisses some other guy, does horrible things as HR it would very hard for SH to believe the doppleganger act. It could ruin Hae Ra in his eyes because he is in love over the moon in her, its clear HR likes him alot too. Sharon being a creepy,jealous witch is good for their story in next 2-3 eps.
they really could stop dragging…
Sharon use the body of HaeRa just to be with MoonSooHo that what shes been longing for.She will do all her power tho its useless because that loneliness she feels only SooHos love can fill that.Which is his heart belongs to HaeRa since from the beginning.Sharon will get her own dose eventually that would be fun how become feisty she will be.looking forward to for the next episode. good job Shin Se Kyung and charismatic KimRaeWon.Each and every episode never fails me.Black Knight team kamsahamnida.
Wow what’s happening with these comments? This used to be a smaller group discussion compared to others, which made it more desirable for me at least? Everyone knows the quote “opinions are like a$$*****, everybody has one”. That’s their prerogative, just as it’s yours to disagree. But can’t we leave out the personal attacks and derogatory comments on other individuals?
Sorry to preach, it’s just this is my only escape from these exact issues we all face in the real world, please leave Kdramaland as that outlet many people love and use…
kdramaland is safe happy place for a lot of us and as a former sufferer of depression i take offense to it and for people to throw around the term mental issues with such ease is just plain disgusting and unacceptable
Sure is. Jeez, just watching the funeral today had me in tears. Real life is hard and sucks a lot of times. I’m thankful for the escape and friendship. 😉
The witch is creepy! She was scarier in the past!
DAMN SHARON when your man walks into a burning building just to get away from you then girl you gotta move on 250yrs would not be enough to live out that embarrassment and did anyone feel The Knight King(from got) in soo ho when he told her to back off ooh that stung i got 2nd hand embarrassment from that lol!
2nd hand embarrassment…hilarious!! There’s a saying my sons says all the time “Damn Daniel”, think it has officially changed to Damn Sharon! bwahahaha
i got it from the amazing world of gumball my fav cartoon only he called it it 2nd hand shame hahahahahaha that’s where i get most of my humor lol
So cute, watched it many times. Great source. 😉 lol
Lmao this is so funny! I agree 100% tho. They should’ve let them live till 200 in misery, not with super powers
I hope the doppleganger period wont be too long.
Shape shifting, doppelgänger, works well only from afar. But when it comes to up close and personal, instincts and the intimate impressions kick in. The smell, the feel, natural reactions (shyness, inhibitions) and things familiar will tell. Hae Ra and Soo Ho have just begun to court earnestly. With Soo Ho, Hae Ra snaps but gives him a come hither look. They have this one month thing going on. Sharon is bent on getting him into a compromising situation, preferably with Hae Ra looking on. So she will be forward and seductive. Soo Ho knows his woman and will definitely catch on when the doppelgänger acts out of synch.
even sending the assistant was a solid burn lol
really love this drama
I don’t get the witch, ok fine you were his wife in the past life, but in this current life she saw him first bitch. Like you don’t have a claim on him in this life, besides you don’t age…do you think marrying him would work?
bithvvhHHH WHAT THE FUCJCCJJH
