Instead of Song Hye Kyo, many viewers believe Jang Ki Yong is the one who “carries” the acting in “Now, We Are Breaking Up”.
After a break from the small screen, Song Hye Kyo finally made an official drama comeback in 2021 with Now, We Are Breaking Up. However, according to many viewers, Song Hye Kyo’s latest role could not live up to the expectations. Instead, in terms of acting, Song Hye Kyo is believed to be somewhat overshadowed by the male lead Jang Ki Yong.
In Now, We Are Breaking Up, Jang Ki Yong plays the rich and famous photographer Yoon Jae Gook, while Song Hye Kyo takes on the role of fashion designer Ha Yeong Eun. The two quickly win the hearts of the audience because of their flawless visuals and how good they look together despite the age gap. Not to mention, although the drama has only aired a few first episodes, there are already many intimate scenes between the main couple that make the viewers excited.
However, in terms of character portrayal, Jang Ki Yong receives more compliments from the audience than Song Hye Kyo. He exudes the aura of a successful and mature man, who is a bit arrogant but still classy.
In particular, Jang Ki Yong’s diverse expressions and expressive eyes are well appreciated, which was not completely showcased in his previous drama”My Roommate Is A Gumiho”.
As for Song Hye Kyo, the actress is deemed suitable for the image of a mature, independent, and cold woman. However, her weakness lies in the fact that she is not fully immersed into the character.
Maybe it’s because of the character’s image that Song Hye Kyo always keeps her face cold. However, the audience is accidentally put in a bad mood as a result of this.
Another flaw is that Song Hye Kyo appears to be blocking herself in prior images. The actress was once famous for works like All In, Full House, That Winter, The Wind Blows, Descendants Of The Sun, Encounter, etc. Because she has always associated herself with the image of a soft, feminine heroine, she hasn’t had many opportunities to try a variety of roles.
Song Hye Kyo has long been regarded as Kbiz’s cult and top female star. However, it must be conceded that the actress was overly cautious in her choice of “safe” role and storyline.
Song Hye Kyo and Now, We Are Breaking Up have been causing quite a stir on social media in November. However, neither has been able to arouse admiration, astonishment, or attraction in the audience. Hopefully, in upcoming episodes, the actress will take a different approach to portraying the role.
