Can I ask if the acting here for YJG or the male lead is his normal acting style? His hand gestures are driving me nuts as it is very distracting. Like when he put both arms out. Or mimic signing a form. Or sweeping hand movement from his chest outwards. Basically looking like a saguek character lecturing someone or a King lecturing someone.


No one else is doing it. I even went to Hancinema to check on Oh Choong- Hwan  the director thinking it was the director. I have watched 3 of his previous works and don't recall that movements. Park SH, Shin SK and the males moved their hands. But not so obviously. I see these sort of movements in our like gardening show or children's programme hosts. I am not kidding or exaggerating. It's obvious right those show people go to the same acting training school.


Anyone else noticed any other actor doing it on any other programme now? I know the male lead in Perfume is expressive but he has a drama king persona. The male lead there would totally, TOTALLY suit in a musical. Musical actors do these sort of movements. Break out in song and it would be perfect.


Sorry. It's been really irritating. And she Man Wool has insane chemistry with the other guy in the past.

Peeking at him having shower maybe :joy::tounge_xd: or enter the room when he coming out from shower :tounge_wink:




@Sarang21 what you think :joy::mrgreen:

This is such a classic scene in a k-drama so I will go with that one :joy:


@ck1Oz It has been a while since I watched his last drama so I can´t really say if it´s his acting style. The only explanation that comes to my mind is that it has to do with his profession as a hotelier. In that profession Like doing all those gesture if you are trying to explain things..for example to foreigners who doesn´t understand the language. So it kind of became a habit for the character to  be that expressive with his hands. I don´t know much about hoteliers so I could be totally wrong lol

Dramabeans recap of episode 3: http://www.dramabeans.com/2019/07/hotel-del-luna-episode-3/


Dramas with a Side of Kimchi's chatty recap of episodes 1 & 2: https://dramaswithasideofkimchi.com/2019/07/21/chatty-recap-hotel-del-luna-ep-1-2/


A lot of comments on the Dramabeans recap are about how IU and the guard captain have chemistry whereas IU and YJG don't. I'm with the Dramas with a Side of Kimchi recappers---I like IU and YJG's chemistry. I think it has become more evident in the latest pair of episodes, and it feels like they've both grown into the characters that little bit more compared to the first two eps. I like how Man Wol was like "I forgive you for having a sex dream about me," and while of course it's entirely inappropriate for a boss to be slamming her employee on her bed and demanding him to sleep with her next to him, that scene worked for me. :lol:Definitely looking forward to jealous!ManWol in the next ep. :D

Why i invested so much to Man Wol and 2 lads story event at the ends no way they're become true :sweatingbullets:




Dear writernim please be nice to this youngsters, they have such good chemistry to just be sidelined story.




Wish Directornim gives viewers a beautiful  Sword fighting dance skills between MW and the Captain B)(remind me crouching Tiger hidden Dragon's B))

The fighting scenes is addictive, the choreography the camera angles a masterful interpretation in the movement with such priceless expression..wow..Lee Jieun aesthetic mastering the swords skills amazing :kiss_wink:

I don’t think it’s his acting style at all.  I haven’t seen him in Absolute BF so I don’t know how he fared there but he was riveting in Crowned Clown.  I get the feeling he’s been given a brief (probably Hong Sisters zaniness inspired) and he’s been tasked to play this very cartoonish ManHwa character as a foil to IU’s droll MW, hence the larger than life gestures and exaggerated expressions.  He’s been acting since he was a child so he’s not a newbie.  If anything he has more experience than IU. So because she’s generally portraying a bored unhappy lifeless figure, he needs to do the exact opposite to provide contrast.  Where he shines are those brief moments of tenderness that he gets when he pities MW, or feels for a ghost’s plight.  That subtle shift in his demeanor and facial expressions...no words, just nuanced acting.

The only thing distracting, minor distraction to me, about Jingoo is putting his hand on his pocket, other than that, i dont see anything wrong, anything big to make a mountain out of a molehole.


Give the lad a break, he is just 21 years old, (i just checked and was surprised! I knew he was young but not that young) and going to make a romance drama with one of the popular actresses around written by popular writers. Expectations are high... 


Just relax and enjoy the drama, people :wub:
