You remember the time you really really loved a certain actor? Then their next drama annoyed you beyond belief and your love has never recovered? That is the topic for Day 16 of our 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge.
DAY 16: Drama that ruined your fondness for an actor/actress you previously liked.
KdramaJen: I had high hopes for Nam Joo-Hyuk after Surplus Princess (Idle Mermaid). Then, I didn’t enjoy his character in School 2015. I am not saying I won’t watch him in anything else, but that character annoyed me, so it sort of spilled over onto Nam Joo-Hyuk. I had the same issue with Yoo Yun-Seok. I loved him in Reply 1994 (#TeamChilbong), but his character in Warm and Cozy left me…cold.
CLKYTTA: Pretty much every drama Sung Joon has picked has not impressed me since I Need Romance 3. Most recently, I was totally unimpressed with Madame Antoine. I don’t know why he keeps getting typecast as these cold hearted doctor types, but I’m starting to not want to watch his dramas at all.
Drama Geek: Lee Min Ho in Heirs. He hasn’t been in a drama since and it’s killing me. I do not blame it on him, but on the writer. Which is why I avoided Descendants of the Sun. I was not going to let her ruin my love for Song Joon Ki. I know once I’m able to wash Kim Tan from my brain I’ll love him again, but for now I still have a bitter taste in my mouth.
KMUSE: I loved Choi Kang Hee in Protect the Boss. Then literally every drama since has driven me batty. Especially Level 7 Civil Servant. That was the beginning of the end for my enjoyment of this actress.
