I can't stomach this show. The female lead is TOTALLY UNLIKEABLE. This is so unlike typical kdramas where there is something likable about the female lead. Unfortunately,  they picked the wrong female lead who has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING pleasant about her - and no redeeming qualities. She would qualify as a second lead at best. It has an interesting storyline - too bad the leading female is well..... not good enough.

Her character is one of the best written ones that portrays what we really are and pass through every day.

She want a short cut to riches cos she believed money answered to everything like most of us do. She is lonely and want at least a hug from anybody that cares. She is also not a pushover and a smart but intelligent young lady.

When others were busy crying and rushing out in that fire inferno, look at the first thing she did. On the fire alarm next to her and dipped some tissue papers inside water. I wouldn't have done that. And she isn't slow. Very sharp minded and a risk taker too with all the human mistakes u can ever think off. I love how her character was written. 

Hope u can view it from this angle. 

As humans we all must have our flaws. That's why I don't feel comfortable anytime I see a character written as flawless. It only can happen in drama land  anyway

So far, the things are definitely looking like that: SB will fall in love NSIII. This plotline seems a little boring and old fashioned for me. I'd prefer something like a good friendship, since the love just go futile. No matter what, a robot falling in love is just too much: love isn't a feeling that can be put through mathematic formulas. Granted, NSIII seems to be learning and reflecting everything he sees humans doing. So there's a chance for him to start acting the way SB will just because he is a robot and has the ability to adapt quickly but that doesn't mean that he will feel a real love, it will be a projection of SB's love and nothing more...

As for the fact that he misses his mom, imo it's because he was programmed to love his mom and he really does. I feel so bad for NSIII, because at this point everyone is using him, even Laura and that's so heartbreaking. Be it robot or not, he was created a perfect replica of a human and still has the ability to asses things.

Finally, the case of human NS - i'll be the most disappointed if they decide to make it so that he is a real good guy and suddenly falls in love with SB and tadaam here's a happy ending, who even cares about NSIII. No, no and no - NSIII is the real main character here, I want to see his character arc and hope to end it on a happy note - which for me doesn't involve romance for this drama

I don't want to see NS3 lose everything in the end too. I want a happy ending for him. Not an open one but really a happy ending. I feel like (for now) I am more concern on NS3 than human Shin. If I were to say it now, I wish them three to have a satisfactorily good ending. I want SB to get to know NS3 first so that when she meets human Shin again and would feel attached to him because of what NS3 did to her (good things) it would be fair enough for NS3. If ever they would change his (NS3) settings and attach an 'emotion mode' then maybe.. we can only hope. Maybe they can be together. That is if human Shin don't get involved.

fullsizephoto915324.jpgce9ad161-4a05-432c-a315-1942dc2e2a0a.jpgdramas-kimchi-are-you-human-too-female-l  That's the beauty of drama everyone doesn't see or feel the same.

 

What I am a about to write will not only seem that I am prejudice it will prove that I am.  For I am not only a fan, I am a HUGE fan. Not just in the characters in which she has played but even more in the human being that she is in reality.  Yet  please let me say I can respect a persons view without agreeing with them.  Just as I can like or not like a character without attacking the life of whom that actor or actress is in reality.  GSY isn't playing who she is in reality she is transforming herself into the character not as she wills it but as it is written by the author that penned it and created the character itself...

 

I almost didn't write this because in truth I don't think her acting or her life needs to be defended by someone like me.  Then I heard a voice in my past who can't write this today say it's the little things we do that make a difference.  Whether she is liked or unliked in this drama is up to you.  To me her body fit the character and there is no doubt that the characters flaws are seen crystal clear.  In only 4 episodes she is able to focus so well that even her emotions can be seen and felt within her eyes alone...

 

You may not like the character she is playing but I beg to differ with you about the actress GSY.  It's hard to keep this short when there is so much that could be said. 

Here is reality at it's best!

  On the Brownie Ship thread here on Soompi there was a girl who wrote on that thread daily she was young and always so cheerful through her words and ability to inspire those of us around her.  Day's, Months and even almost a year went by without us ever realizing she was writing from a hospital bed most of the time and sometimes on good days from her room at home.  Needless to say when she was getting worse her dream was to meet and see GSY in person.  Her family tried to give her that last wish but during the trip in Korea she got much worse and they had to return.  Still not bringing any attention to herself or the situation GSY sends her a personal message and also would have been willing to meet her.  You can't imagine and I cannot express it fully or show you all the joy that it gave @kenxynth and her family.  Not to mention those of us here who knew her...

 

 

One simple act of kindness by an actress that kept it quiet because she didn't want it to be about her.  An act that gave happiness and hope to my sweet chingu just when she needed it most.  Not something I read in some magazine or heard about in the news but something that happened right here.   It's alright to judge a character but please be careful when you judge a persons life or heart in their reality.  For I am a REAL witness that you may not know or see all the beauty that lies within.  My sadness that I am sharing this instead of kenxynth today, but she is in a better place. Where she is free from all sickness and feels no more pain  She would have said it much better than I, but when I read what was said about GSY and in remembering kenxynth I had to at least try...

 

I hope the mods can forgive that some of this is off topic but I hope they can understand me too:heart:usafarmgirl

Who's to say NS3 will lose everything? The show keeps referring to him having no heart/emotions so I'm guessing/hoping he will develop by the ending. Since we're already suspending tons of logic for this show, I think we can afford to suspend a little more that this is possible (lol). If I recall correctly, the director said there are 4 variations of Kang Joon's acting , and so far we've only seen 3. Whether the 4th is NS or NS3, we'll have to wait and see but I'm still holding out for an ending where human NS+Mom+NS3 can all be happy.

While we're waiting for Monday to come, I'm gonna post some goodies I found at Korean websites. 

Take a closer look at Nam Shin's home. Looks neat.

In reality - I totally can understand about human flaws - but as mentioned in a later post,  a competent actress would be able to depict both flaws and likeability which this actress has absolutely FAILED to do. I do NOT analyze characters - what I do is watch my unanalyzed reaction to the role with respect to the role and wonder why other 'flawed' roles I have watched in the past and why this one is less appealing. I don't TRY to like the lead actor/actress. I just observe my unfiltered reaction and THEN sort out the differences and details.

Sorry, this seems like you're blaming Gong Seung Yeon for something out of her control and placing the traits of the character onto her. She worked with what she was given, and imo I don't think people are meant to empathize with So Bong just yet. If you've seen her other roles, you would know she is quite a capable actress. Gong Hyo Jin is a really seasoned actress so I don't think it's fair to compare someone who has been in the industry so much longer than someone who hasn't had many lead roles yet.

Btw Shin Se Kyung is notorious for being a  one-dimensional (horrible) actress and I don't recall her being in Doctors...  lol

 

You are free to your opinion though, this is just mine. :)

I am an instinctive watcher - I either like an interpretation of a character - likeable or not, or I don't. I have never been attracted to this actress' shows whatsoever. Yes - Shin Se Kyung is quite one dimensional - but she is good at depicting her own personality. That's what many actors do exceptionally well at or rely on - using something that they already are or they will have to' interpret' a role or character - it;s called congruence. Someone who fails to render depth in a role means the person is unable to find congruence within themselves that the collective can sense as authenticity. THAT is what separates a good actress from someone who is just TRYING to act. There is a difference.

Damn! And who knows how many episodes are yet to be cancelled due to this damn World Cup the upcoming month. It's so frustrating and depressing.:bawling: This dorama is such an outlet for me at the moment!

@juju84 I feel the same way, really hate it when they cancel episodes. At least last week we got two episodes. Other stations cancelled their shows.

You must be seeing something in Shin Se Kyung and her acting that myself and many others don’t see in her one facial expression. It’s fine to not like GSY’s acting/shows, but it’s another thing to insult her as a person based on traits of the character she is portraying. That’s what I got from your previous post anyway, apologies if I misunderstood. GSY is obviously not Meryl Streep, but imo it’s a bit premature to write her off as someone who fails to render depth in a role based on 6 episodes which she has few screentime in. She is far from being the worst actress ever. You might as well just say you don’t like Gong Seung Yeon herself and call it a day. My two cents.

Based on the teasers it seems that we'll have at least two kiss scenes and something tells me they are both with NSIII:

And in this scene, it almost seems like NSIII is so confused with SB, as if no one has ever been this worried about him.

Last but not least, a collection of NSIII's lie detector wink:

I completely AGREE with you! I found her character to be shameless, greedy, and annoying. Yes, I understood her anger when she found out that the Human Namsin planned the entire charade but when Nam Sin III saved her life from the fire, she couldn’t even be grateful long enough before she accepted dirty money to spy on him. She was really “trash” like her dad said... I couldn’t stand her character and wished they had found another actress who can play her character but make the viewers empathetic.. However, I did find a few moments in Episode 4 that “redeemed” her a bit and it was when she lost her necklace in the pool and Nam Sin III told her not to lose it or her mom will be sad.. I think at that moment, she started to see him differently... even telling him that she’d quit her job. At that moment, I think she finally realized that she was wrong for taking the job...

you are getting it wrong - I'm am criticizing her acting abilities - or lack thereof. I am not interested in her personality or her traits. It's her interpretation and portrayal of the character and her acting abilities that I am not enjoying. As for Shin Se Kyung - as mentioned - you have to understand CONGRUENCY. Shin Se Kyung is good at portraying herself. So regardless of how bad her acting skills are, her authentic nature somehow manages to express itself WITHIN the drama with or without effort. I woudn't cast SSK in a pitiful heroine drama or any other more serious dramas that require serious acting skills either. But at least some of her true essence is being conveyed through some of her dramas. A good producer or director would know how to identify and exploit that too in their actors. Whomever this chick is - it ain't happening in this drama - that is BAD for a lead actress role.

I don't know if I m only one hoping this , but I really hope human namshin to wake up soon, not because I don't like NS3 (I love him) but I want to see human nam shin in action too! Sure NS3 is there but he is PROTECTING his human partner's seat. I want to see both of them protecting their own places, their own selves. I don't want NS3 to do all the work only to see NS becoming the CEO of PK as well as the one throwing Seo in jail for murdering his father. I don't want human NS to die after all the years he has spent in agony and despair (I m sure he tried countless times to run away , source teaser of grandpa). Also I really want to see how NS lived in korea that he became arrogant and cold most importantly his relation with Assistant Ji. I want to see both NS and NS3 work together. I know he will wake up but when?? I want to see this scene!!!

any actor/actress worth a whit should have the cajones to suck up any criticism and use it to hone their skills. They have chosen a career path that puts them directly in front of the world to be judged and praised regardless of which direction it takes. Paying blind homage is not helpful - it is actually quite harmful as the person who is flattered constantly by the throng might really believe they are actually being seen when the truth is that ALL is projection unless one can really see without prejudice and/or favor. But that last sentence is way beyond what this forum is for.

Are we talking about the same Shin Se Kyung here? lol. If you mean LEE SUNG KYUNG who actually was in Doctors, I'd get what you're trying to convey, but SSK is another story entirely. Again, you have your opinion, I have mine, and we're just going to keep circling if this continues so let's just stop here.

Moderator’s note : 

i think we should move on with regards to GSY’s acting skills. Point noted & taken on those who like or dislike her acting skills. She’s the main actress  who will take on a large chunk of the screen time of what is already a pre-produced drama. For the peace of this thread & the enjoyment of everyone here:

1.  Let’s  not bring in other actors or actresses unrelated to the drama

2. No actor / actress bashing allowed as per Soompi rules.
