Our Beloved Summer’s Yeon Soo is definitely born to be played by Kim Da Mi!
Our Beloved Summer is currently one of the most viral K-dramas. Contributing to the success of the series is Kim Da Mi‘s natural acting as the female lead Kook Yeon Soo. Let’s review the highlights of Kim Da Mi’s emotional portrayal of a strong and independent Kook Yeon Soo!
1. Yeon Soo is cheerful and happy in love
The moments when Yeon Soo has butterflies in her stomach with feelings of her first love, laughs happily, or the times when she gets embarrassed in front of Choi Woong (Choi Woo Sik) are all portrayed naturally by Kim Da Mi, not feeling “over the top” or forced. It feels exactly like the actress really immersed herself in the character of Yeon Soo.
2. Yeon Soo suffers and tries to be strong
Another side of Yeon Soo’s emotions is excellently expressed by Kim Da Mi. Yeon Soo is a resilient, independent girl and Kim Dami shows viewers the moment when Yeon Soo hides her pain by pretending to be strong. From her steadfast gaze to teary eyes when she struggles to cope with difficulties in relationships and life.
3. Her chemistry with Choi Woo Sik
Our Beloved Summer is the second work marking the collaboration of Kim Da Mi and Choi Woo Sik after The Witch. Since they are comfortable around each other, their chemistry is natural and heart-fluttering. Yeon Soo and Choi Woong both have nice visuals and they compliment each other well when they stand side by side.
4. Expressive hands
Not only portraying Yeon Soo through facial expressions and gestures, but Kim Da Mi’s hands can also convey various emotions well. Even in scenes without dialogue and the characters’ faces, viewers still can feel Yeon Soo’s emotions that Kim Da Mi wants to deliver.
