I can’t help it. I love this woman! Ye Ji Won is one of the best thing on K-drama right now.
She is a well-respected veteran actress who has been in the industry since 1992. I first saw her in Nae Il Cantabile, and I forgot about it. Then I’ve watched The Producers, her character as the stringent supplies manager made me notice her but she is still forgettable after the show ended. Right now, she is Park Do Kyung’s (Eric Mun) crazy a*s Noona in Oh Hae Young Again. She finally made her mark and I will never forget her after this. The scene where she sang at the Karaoke with her staff, sealed the deal for me.
It is already hard to make the audience cry, to make them laugh is even harder. She can successfully achieve both. I only have love for her. In Episode 8, her background story has shown us why she is a drunkard every single day. My heart goes out to her for having experienced love only to lose it.
She looks great with Ji Sang (Kim Ji Suk) but she is amazing with Hae Young (Seo Hyun Jin). If there is someone who can push Hae Young to become better at her profession, it will be Noona Soo Kyung. I’m glad that Ye Ji Won is not simply a prop for comic relief. Her presence makes a difference that is hard to pull, especially when the OTP is soaring high with chemistry.
She acts with heart on her sleeves, and a black belt on her waist. We better watch out!
