@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

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:

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.

 

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:

I think I understand why some people like the chemistry bw IU and the Captain, IU is one of those people who has great chemistry with her co-stars. When she and the Captain have a scene, I can definitely feel the chemistry, but when she and YJG are together as well, they also have chemistry that I actually forget about the Captain. I still prefer too her chemistry with YJG.

Agree! He was phenomenal in TCC, and I admit it was my first time watching him in that drama. Tho I know he's a child actor just like Kim So Hyun, Kim Yoo Jung, to name a few. And he is sooo good. He'll go far.

Yes, I know he's also young but I can't believe he's just 21 as well..ha ha...I had to check myself. I feel like he's already done so many dramas that sometimes I still don't believe his age :D

 

 

@uglypearl ... thanks for sharing the meaning of the cards, I was waiting someone would mention about the significance of those :).

I have watched YJG before. In fact I have rewatched one of his previous drama before over 20 times.

 

A good drama expericne encompasses all factors. If one thing strikes a discordant note it takes you out from the moment. From immersing yourself into that mood. Dramas are supposed to make you switched off the real life and BE in your drama world. 

 

@nrllee I am inclined to lean towards being told by the writer or director to act that way. In which case Korean Netizens comments may or may not influence future scenes. Since Kdramas have a tendency to have male leads with opposite traits from the females. It's just that JMW is perfectly JMW and then we have the naive awkward male lead who technically survives studying in Harvard which has 2 study pathways. But like most MBA requires professional work experiencess. The official drama character description does not have his age but I presume he is in his late 20s?

 

I happen to like JMW's dressing style. And I like the ensemble or supporting cast a lot. But a drama has to have directing skills, transition cuts, good writing, strong cast with good solid acting skills, lighting and mood lighting, good OSTs and co-ord with solid fashion styling.

 

Therefore when one thingc is jarring it makes it obvious when someone is out of synch euth the rest. 

 

Either way it's Wed. I have 6 episode of Perfume to catch up on plus www tonight. Hotel De Luna can wait till next week.

Hello Everyone! I'm new to this forum and this is my first time posting but I'm enjoying the drama too much to not post and share my opinion with all of you :D.

 

@Ondine @lightbringer06 I agree with your opinions 100%, I like IU chemistry with the captain, but I believe, besides this being the awesome IU and her charm to have chemistry with anyone, that it also has to do with the current situation in regards of MW punishment. I like to call this *lack of chemistry* with CS , plot development. We know MW is being punished for something she did in the past, and the fact she was in love with the captain has something big to do with it, though we still don't know why. This is being shown to us quickly and very early, hence why I believe the chemistry with the captain has been obvious for this reason since the start. MW in the past was also different, feelings wise, more open, more trusting, and so on.

 

With CS things are different, up until not long ago he wanted nothing to do with MW and Hotel Del Luna. It wasn't until he started dreaming of her that he grew more curious and something awakened within him and compelled him to stay (I believe he has fallen but he still won't admit it). MW in the present has been in denial for over a thousand years, has grown to be angry, sad, bitter, and basically closed off to anything related to love. To me it wouldn't be logical for her to suddenly show the same feelings towards CS as she did with the captain. But IT IS happening, slowly with every chapter, this last one, chapter number 4 was huge on this regard. We've started to see a little bit more of MW defenses cracking, and CS growing more confident on his work at HDL and being around her, it is, after all as I said before, developing. And the chemistry between IU and Yeo Jin Goo is reflecting this as well, and so far, I'm loving it. 

 

Sorry for the long post, and I hope all of you have an excellent day and a short wait until the next episode!
