So, Noh Minwoo and Hwang Jungeum have signed on to do Full House 2. Considering the actors have changed, I don’t understand why they’re still clinging on to the Full House name. Other than the obvious famewhoring to the 2004 drama, of course. I get that the drama was a HUGE success, heck it was THE drama that got me into korean dramas. But you know, if it’s not a sequel, why put the same name to it? It’s great if it ends up being a success like its predecessor, but if it ends up a failure, it’ll be so embarrassing as an actor to put this on their resume.
On the upside, yay for Hwang Jungeum jumping to do another drama again. I like that she continues to work and improve her acting (I’m side eyeing Yoon Eunhye here). I can’t say Hwang is a great actor yet, her acting can be between middling and good, but she’s got a great presence and strives to emote on screen, even at the risk of overacting sometime.
On the other hand, the last time I saw Noh Minwoo, he was so awkward! His line delivery had this untimely pauses that kinda gets to you. But it was Gumiho Girlfriend, and I did hear he was better in that drama special afterward. And frankly, at this point I don’t see Hwang and Noh having any chemistry. They look like they’re shopping and manicure buddies instead.
