Han Suk Kyu in “2nd Story Villain”
I believe Deep Rooted Tree writers probably included bits of Han Suk Kyu’s past characters into his current Sejong Lee Do role… o.O
I just finished “이층의 악당” (“2nd Story Villain”, English title “The Widow and the Villain”), a suspense comedy which was really very funny in a tragic and wierd sort of way. It stars Kim Hye Soo as an insomniac widow who’s losing her mind, and Han Suk Kyu, essentially a shameless thief who suffers as he inflicts suffering all the way.
There are a whole slew of characters who pepper the show with more unexpected humor (eg the regrets of being a 160cm gangster) but for me, the viewing experience is enhanced whenever Han Suk Kyu does his 변신연기 (“transformation acting”), where he switches back and forth between two extreme personalities, like last week’s memorable scene in Deep Rooted Tree. Yeah, he’ll get the drama daesang this year, undoubtedly heh.
Out of the many memorable scenes in the movie, the following is the cutest memorable scene for me~ lol (I just can’t help thinking if he will squeak to Mu Hyul like that too, instead of asking for meat whenever he’s exhausted… )
