Ahhhh I really like Zhang Xueying, but I am not sure if I can sit through Huang Zitao’s acting. I like him in varieties, but it feels like all his characters are the same/he acts the same. Loved Wu Qian as well, but it felt like Zitao’s character in The Brightest Star in the Sky was a rehash of his character in Les Interpretes with Yang Mi. Same with his character in the movie version of You are My Sunshine (Yang Mi, Huang Xiaoming). I hope he surprises with this role. I really want to enjoy another of Zhang Xueying’s shows. I really liked Summer’s Desire, but didn’t attempt Princess Silver because I don’t think I can stand the angst.
I don’t know about Mark Chao in the Misaeng remake; Im Siwan was just so vulnerable and perfect and the type the character called for in the Jang Geu-rae role, for Mark to take it on means that they’d have to do some rewriting. Unless he’s the mentor…
He is playing the mentor to Bai Jingting.
Anyone else notice Bai Lu’s roles are pretty much all the same?
Talk about typecasting lol..
If it works ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
She did do a more “traditionally girly” role last year, but it hasn’t aired. https://cfen.si/2018/10/07/__trashed-8/
