Yoon Eun Hye’s comeback drama in 2 years, netizens’ reviews “There is mis-casting”

yeh_200809

Yoon Eun Hye had her comeback drama in 2 years with ‘My Fair Lady’ on 19th August on KBS.

But viewers have voiced their disappointment with Yoon Eun Hye‘s acting skills. Viewers have voiced that all they saw was grand accessories, branded fashion and arrogant walking in the 1st episode aired. Viewers also complaint about Yoon Eun Hye‘s blurred pronounciation and awkward acting and expressions.

Yoon Eun Hye debuted as part of female singer group Baby VOX and made her drama debut in MBC ‘Goong’ and subsequently acted in KBS ‘Man in Grapevine’ and MBC ‘Coffee Prince’ receiving great reviews and raised topics amongst netizens and viewers.

So coming back after 2 years, viewers bear great expectation for her comeback drama. Yoon Eun Hye also revealed in several interviews earlier on how she had put in much time to get into the character for the drama.

But with the first episode aired today, there were many bad reviews and there were even accusations of ‘miscasting’ as said by many netizens.

Viewers went up to online discussion board after watching the first episode and said, “I think I expected too much.. It seems that it did get better than better”, “I think she lost the feel after resting for 2 years. It was awkward”, “This is like mis-casting”.

While there were others who said, “Bad reviews just by the 1st episode..we should watch more to find out better”.

I want to watch the 1st episode soon.. I thought the netizens were harsh with their comments.. Probably because it was the 1st eps and it was a new role that EunHye unnie is attempting

Anyway, according to afiqah, all of GD song is top 20 of cyworld and dosirak on 19th Aug ^^ The media is too bz writing about GD’s plagiarism case

  1. I just read a summary and I heard that her acting was a little awkward, but that’s because she’s never played a mean snotty character. Netizens should just chill out and see how things work out.

  2. Was wondering if you might help promote this:

    http://aa-chan.net/blog/2009/08/20/gd-heartbreaker-cd-giveaway/

    I’d also like to have you help in the adjudication of the winners 🙂

  3. its not really a new charactor. its more like the same category as all her other roles. cheezy drama cartoon roles. i was hoping this would impress me but it didn’t i hope she will improve…

    she’s kind of like Kwon sang woo. horrible dialect. but appealing.. and haslots ofcrazy hardcore fans.

  4. I’m still sticking with my story that both sides JaeSuChun and SM Ent. are getting what they asked for.
    SM Ent. should’ve not been so controlling and the boys needed better judgment and a lawyer before signing any contract.

    • do u really think dbsk before debut had power over the contract?.. with all the hardships they’ve been through.. they were desperate to get a contract signed with SM…

    not only heartbreaker the whole album 10 song are in top 10 in som music chart in the day release. and not they are in top 15 20.
    The MV has 1mil2 viewer in 2 days =;

  6. Go GD! (*Rolls eyes at haters*)
    GD definitely showed the haters, knew he would.
    I can’t wait for my album to arrive! I’m still a bit excited about it.

  7. GO GD

  8. Go G-Dragon! 7/10 songs are amazing to listen too. I can’t stop listening to it.

    For DBSK, I hope everything works out alright, I’m a bit worried something will happen like Yoochun, Junsu and Jaejoong will drop out of SM while the other two will stay in SM yet all will form a group? No, wait that sounds weird even to me.

    I just hope everything works out for them.

  9. “Viewers have voiced that all they saw was grand accessories, branded fashion and arrogant walking in the 1st episode aired.”

    nietzens and their foolish opions. The accessories and fashion have nothing to do with her….and arrogant walking! WTF I would assume that her arrogant walking is more of her being in tune with the attitude of the character.

    Anywat, I think I missed the first ep in US time. Does anybody know what date and time I can watch it in the US?

    • I suppose it just meant that rather than getting into the story and plot, there was too much emphasize on how rich the lead is. As for the arrogant walking, I guess it just means all she was doing was walking arrogantly, but they didn’t see anything else from her.

      I hope the next episode gets better :O

  10. Finally YEH is back! I hope I can watch it soon. =)

    G-D’s song isn’t my style, but I’m glad it is doing well on the charts. After all the hatred he has received, I’m sure this is what matters the most to him.

    And as for DBSK, I hope everything goes well to them. I honestly haven’t checked up on them since their Mirotic activities ended, but I love their voices and I think they’re better off as a group than going solo, so hopefully it all will work out for them. 😉

  11. i never thought YEH’s acting was that great :p

  12. I welcome YEH comeback but I do not think this is the one for her. Judging by the trailer and first episodes, I thought she acted like a true newbie actress. Where did all her charm and sparks go?! I hope I judged too early so we shall wait and see.

    YEH fighting!

  13. DBSK Fighting

  14. exactly sookyeong as u said the media are just more than busy about the whole plagrism issue than anything else Im glad he is doing good when I checked mnet and bogs chart most of his songs were in the top 10
