TV: [Spoilers!!!] Jang Ok Jung (Pilot)



Article: Pilot 'Jang Ok Jung' Kim Tae Hee - Hong Soo Hyun - Han Seungyeon, a powerful meeting between the three ladies

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+309, -47] I'm not Han Seungyeon's anti but.. after watching Kim Tae Hee and Hong Soo Hyun and then seeing Han Seungyeon, she looked like an octopus.. Sorry ㅠㅠ

2. [+192, -34] An actress really is an actress for a reason...

3. [+167, -50] Hong Soo Hyun's gorgeous..

4. [+66, -22] Han Seungyeon really is a miscast. Aside from her acting, she looks like an elementary school student. What are they going to do about that?

5. [+59, -19] Proves that there is a face specifically for acting. You can call singers pretty all you want but you stick them in a drama and they look horrible compared to real actresses. The only ones that managed to break that barrier were Sung Yuri and Jung Ryeo Won... Seeing Seungyeon today, all I could do was sigh... She's nearly 8 years younger than those nunas and she still falls behind in terms of looks.

Article: 'Jang Ok Jung' Kim Tae Hee criticized for opening a Chosun style fashion show

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+183, -76] The drama is fun, fresh, nice to look at. And more than anything, Kim Tae Hee acted better than I thought.

2. [+117, -13] I think I'll be looking forward to Sung Dong Il and Lee Hyo Jung's charisma battle in this drama. I got goose bumps watching Sung Dong Il's ambitious, burning acting.

3. [+139, -52] I don't think Kim Tae Hee is as bad as the public says. It's just that she has such a pretty face that people just expect more out of her. I think if you strip the Kim Tae Hee name from her, she's not that bad.

4. [+30, -3] Kim Tae Hee's not that great but she's not that bad either. Definitely not deserving of so much hate, really. I thought she overcame her acting controversies with Iris and I think she's actually improved since Iris as well. It's just that she's so pretty that people want to hate on her ㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+23, -3] Sung Dong Il's acting was just amazing...

3. [+77, -10] Yoo Ah In really matches historical dramas~~

    Good Drama

  2. Interesting. I don't think Kim Taehee's the worst actress, but yeah you kinda expect a much better performance given her star power. I'll check this drama out.

    And I can't with comment #5. Only Sung Yuri and Jung Ryeowon?! What about Eugene? I honestly think she's one of the most beautiful actresses in Korea, and definitely one of the prettiest idols to have ever debuted.

  3. I don't think the Kara member falls that far behind in terms of looks..

  7. Please give Seungyeon a break. I really really hope that she'll do well in here.

  8. And lmao @ the idea that Kim Tae Hee has improved ONE IOTA. She looked like a deer in the headlights like in every other drama she's done.

  12. it's not a matter of singer/idol and actress's face. I mean if they put Dara instead of seungyeon she will fit in perfectly. and Hong Soo Hyun is just in the same level of seungyeon btw.

  22. Actually I thought that even with hem two she looked pretty but at first I thought she was a child actress

    ReplyDelete
  23. @1. [+309, -47] Hah! «Seungyeon looked like an octopus.» Where are then the tentacles?
    Do you see humans differently? &/or... Actually, are you human?

    @4. [+66, -22] & yes Han Seungyeon's face looks young but she does NOT look like "an elementary school student". She is taller.

    Now about the rest of the comments, I can see how hateful they are, so NO need to say reply them.



    We go back to subject.
    Let's wait & enjoy the rest of the drama.

  24. its because she looks too young for her role

    ReplyDelete
  25. That's what I thought too...

    ReplyDelete
  26. For me she looks more beautiful than the two others, I don't know about her acting skills but she has the beauty that I except from an Asian. Kim tae hee and the old Lady aren't that beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  27. The three girls all look identical. Stop with the plastic surgeries please.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, you're free to your opinion. I don't think it's cut and dry enough to immediately conclude that Hong Soo Hyun is prettier.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yeah they make it kinda obvious that they prefer actresses over idols. 95% it doesn't really matter what reality is, they'll say the idol is uglier than the actresses. Also, since when it is a bad thing to look young? Don't they usually praise the actresses for the same exact reason.



    While I've never considered Seung Yeon the prettiest entertainer out there, I think she IS pretty and has a unique look. In the pictures above she actually looks like Kim Tae Hee's younger sister. She's also prettier than the other actress(and no pulling up old pictures of Hong Soo Hyun doesn't matter, we are comparing current appearances).

    ReplyDelete
  30. But you consider HSY prettier but i can't consider HSH prettier cos it's not cut & dry enough in your books?.......LMAO

    ReplyDelete
  31. Tae hee and Seungyeon are both natural don't know for the other girl

    ReplyDelete
  32. um the netizens in that article are acting like she's sooo much prettier than seungyeon. and the user above is just saying that, while he respects other people's opinion (about hong soohyun being prettier), it's really not that obvious.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Checking it out because I love Hong Soo Hyun and Yoo Ah In

    Did you actually watch Jang Ok Jung yet? She was pretty good. Her acting here is way better than it was in My Princess or her other past dramas. Once you watch JOJ, you'll get the netizens' pleasantly surprised comments.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Surprisingly, there's little to no bad comment about han seung yeon acting, only about her face..that's mean she's good right?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes, I agree. Eugene is so pretty. I don't think she's prettier than KTH, but she sure is pretty :)

  41. seung yeon is way too bloated, she looks like an elephant.

    watch the video and not the screencaps, hong soo hyun is prettier only by a small margin

    ReplyDelete
  42. Warning TL:DR rant:


    The comment: "Proves that there is a face specifically for acting" and just the general commenting on faces in every article getting so many votes it really makes me think of BBC dramas and they cast an actor on how well they suit the role not on whose the going to be entering a beauty contest. Yeah the lead guy tends to be on the attractive side and the lead girl young and easily spruced up princess diaries style but they don't have a 'typical' look. I can not criticise these people on their acting because as a whole I find Korean drama's bogged down in shallow melodrama that is poorly executed and rarely does it represent its material in a realistic fashion unless Korean people go around gawking at each other for 5 long minutes whenever something remotely significant happens or having awkward, slow conversations with lots of jerky pantomine gestures. I would criticise the mindset that someone needs to be a bit of eye candy for the viewers to drool over in order for a show to be watchable. And the silly thing of 'sacrificing their face for their acting', maybe I'm being too western but as an actor/tress you want to be as convincing in your role and re-enact the situation/scene as if you were the person your pretending to be that its believable and engaging to the audience emotionally drawing them into the scene be if for laughs, tears, anger, shock whatever. I know they do talk about the acting ability but it often seems secondary to the face and then even what they count as acting ability I would challenge that.
    Even if the story starts decently (and rarely it does) it takes so long to get going, there is rarely chemistry between the cast (I know there are exceptions and they usually are the ones that get popular), the plots are too predictable and quite a few end in a really abysmal unsatisfactory note. I don't know if its directing, actors or writing but every drama I've tried to get into (by recommendation) has been a chore to endure, White Christmas was an exception but I still skipped parts. On a side note the movies are pretty good and that might be due to the difference in the way they film, write and cast them.

  43. Alright, it's starting to get really annoying how Knetizens are so fixated in thinking that actress are just way prettier and better than idols.
    Then again, screw that. It's annoying how they are so fixate on beauty itself

    ReplyDelete
  44. LOL @ netizens

    not about idols taking away roles from rookie actors
    not about acting
    it's the AURA now

    ReplyDelete
  45. what are you smoking?? i'm a KARA fan and even i think she looks average next to her.

    ReplyDelete
  46. "Proves that there is a face specifically for acting."

    Errr, not really. If you can act, you can act. It doesn't matter what your face looks like. Sure some people might be picked because the producers/casting directors think they "look" the part of the character better but the statement of "You can call singers pretty all you want but you stick them in a drama and they look horrible compared to real actresses" is very untrue.

    she can't act Tbh .. even in Philippine Drama she's Suck

    ReplyDelete
  50. We don't know NOW. She needs to prove us again if she improved or not. Philippines didn't really give her the right training and stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Maybe you should watch the drama first.


    Tbh, I'm surprised that Kim Tae Hee keeps getting cast in modern-themed dramas when she's actually pretty good in historical dramas. She's not good at being flighty and sorta stupid, like in My Princess. But she's great at being solemn and commanding, the way you'd imagine an empress is like.


    Plus she looks lovely in a hanbok and with minimal makeup.


    Unlike that actress in the other drama wearing fucking ulzzang makeup when she's in a historical drama ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  52. She can't fucking act.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Acting can be achieved with hard work and training. She can act but needs more polishing to become better.
