I will admit to not paying attention at all to the rest of the cast, but in these clips from the special episode I did finally watch them, and I'm really not impressed. I don't know the lead, but here he seem incredibly bland and lacking in intensity. In the scene in which he's hammering the hot metal, looking all sweaty, I'm getting no intensity or emotion from him. It just feels like a scene trying to make him look sexy. Also, in the  scene showing him lifting his sword and running into battle, his face in not expressing fierceness, but fear and worry. But since he's not the only one who seems lacking- the scene in which the sister is having a seizure looks fake and the reaction from both the lead actors seems really mild considering the situation, this makes me worried about the director. This show is lead by a very young cast, they need to have someone who will guide them well, and I'm worried they're not getting what they need. I hope I'm wrong, and this is just an initial impression, but I'm worried...

Obviously, JH, being more experienced, doesn't seem to be affected by this- looks like he's directing himself... Maybe that explains why it felt from the PD's words like he didn't actually speak to JH.

I hope for the lead actors that at a certain point in the show, they will get to act with JH. It's very obvious they need someone more experienced with them, and there is no one better than JH to have for guidance...

Still hoping that Noh Hee Kyung would cast Hyukie in one of her dramas. :( I really like her writing (not all, but most of them).

Noh Hee Kyung is the writer that is famous for melodramas, right? 

 

I too wish that JH would take up a pure romance melo. He would shine!! I remember him saying on Guerilla date hat he is born to do Melos.... but he doesn’t often get melo scripts :anguished:

When i first watched the special clips, I also feel like their acting has more room for improvement. I just hope they don't dwell too much on the love triangle. I guess the leads are still new and I think JH has upped the bar for everyone. I really hope the 2 leads get a chance to act with JH, the actor they look up to and be able to learn from him. All his solo scenes are so amazing, his screen presence and aura... :wub:

Noh Hee Kyung only casts same set of actors in her every drama. She is like movie directors. B)

I want to have a reunion with writer of Beautiful Mind. But I don't know whether they want to have it or not. Lols

Me not impressed too. Bland and don't have the "oomph" (vigour and energy) feeling of a fighter.

I hope to see him in a bad guy role. One that would make us forget that he is Jang Hyuk and we "hate" his character. It would be a big challenge (for fans) as no matter how villain his character is, we will still end up loving that character. :D

Guess this might be one of the reason why he accepted the role. He can explore the character the way he wants it. BTW, when is this drama airing?

I've seen both of lead actors earlier and they were good. They are still young and inexperienced in Saeguk(which requires different acting style) but I don't think it's right to judge them just from the previews. Let's watch the drama and then decide besides I personally don't see anything wrong with their acting in the preview. Different actors have different way of expressing themselves so as long as they are convincing it's not fair to compare them to each-other.

My personal favourite in the whole drama is Jung Young Nam. I wish she could have a love line with JH.:wub:

And it's quiet funny that Park Ye Jin is JH's step-mommy on the screen but she is younger than him in real life.:lol:

He was? I didn't know that. But it did feel like he was essentially let loose :)  I know that most people like his performance in WOK, even if they didn't like the show itself, but I actually thought he needed to be reigned in a bit. The whole drunk scene of his character yelling "Maaaaan!" all the time was a bit... too much. 

I think every actor needs direction, another eye that is critical of the performance is always good. Even his own eye can be used, but one needs the position of a director. In "My country" he seems to slaying in his role... I wonder if this is one stage before JH will start directing shows himself. I read that the actress from Voice said that JH would do acting session with her, and that it felt to her like he was a second director. I don't want him to stop acting, so I would love to see him take a position of a director in his own show, even in one episode, like many actors do in in American shows.

Yeah famous for Dear My Friends, Live, It's Okay that's Love, and many more. Romance Melo is a big yes for me.

Like how she casted Lee Kwang Soo thrice in her dramas. LOL. BM is still my favorite Hyukie drama I guess. The character development was so awesome. I hope My Country won't waste his talent and make him shine as LBW.

Too good looking to stop acting, in my humble opinion. Beside, the industry needs an experienced, skillful, good looking, versatile, professional actor like JH. It will be everyone's loss otherwise.

 

Reading all the comments here made me admire him even more. Clearly he is a great actor who enjoys experimenting roles, portraying in depth emotions, and really showcases true professionalism. I like the fact that he takes on roles where he finds interesting and gives him room to experiment. He is not merely seeking fame and status. This is a good attribute.

But the directors have no life.:sweatingbullets: I mean it's extremely difficult job. Actors act their part and go home but poor directors get no break because they have to control pretty much every aspect of the drama. I guess that's why many of them turn eccentric at some point of their lives.:lol:

Instead I wish JH finally completes the script that he has been writing for 22 years.:D

I agree. I guess it might be their style of acting that I am not used to. Maybe I need to understand their character development more.

 

Maybe Yi Bang Won's stepmom is really younger than him (in history)and that made him loathe her more?

Maybe not fully as he was asked to redo the earlier scenes but I feel that the writer didn't really know what she wanted in the role.

For K drama, I only watch Jang Hyuk and Ji Jin Hee. Other actors don't really catch my attention (and I don't know why). So yes true, I shouldn't be so critical of the young casts - see how their acting first.

Hey it could be true. How kings can have many wives and I am not surprised if (they) are younger than YBW and a scheming one too.

I so agree with this. I was hoping Chil Sung and Ji Kyung (the vet) will have a love line since they met 4x and she said "if they meet the 5th time...." but they didn't meet :crazy:

I know about this upcoming one but no idea about this title and when will it come, and now I know :) 

 

There has been several versions of the title - Call It Like You See It,  Say What You Saw, Say It As You See It etc... No official English title yet, all literal translation of the Korean title. More info here :

That was what many viewers were puzzled and angry about too. She brought in the vet and just left it like that

I love this fan made poster!
