This female Kpop idol is talented and gorgeous… but all her K-dramas flopped?

Despite being excellent at acting, this female Kpop idol still hasn’t scored any successful work.

In recent years, SNSD Seohyun has gained a decent amount of attention via her new K-drama “Jinxed At First”. This is the idol-actress’ 2nd acting project within the year, where she proves her versatility via contrasting images. In particular, her previous work, the movie “Love and Leashes”, showed a more mature and seductive side of Seohyun, while “Jinxed At Firstpainted her as a naive princess.

However, despite Seohyun’s brilliant portrayals and contrasting images, both of her 2022 acting projects can’t be considered as successes. In particular, “Love And Leashes” focuses on a rather non-mainstream topic and boasts a bland plot, while “Jinxed At First” saw ratings lowering over time. The series, which debuted with a viewership of 3.9%, has dropped to 3.3% in episode 12, and even plummeted to 2.6% in another episode.

And these are not the first time Seohyun starred in low-rating works either, as one of her previous work, “Private Lives”, where she also co-starred with actor Go Kyung Pyo, reported extremely low viewership, at 1.5%. Another K-drama of Seo Hyun, “Time”, where she starred alongside Kim Jung Hyun, also recorded ratings as low á 2-4%. In fact, “Time” is more well-known for Kim Jung Hyun’s “attitude controversy” instead of its quality. So far, the only successful work where Seohyun played a major character is “Bad Thief, Good Thief”, with ratings around 7-10% – a fairly normal amount for a weekend drama that is aired on a public channel.

Despite debuting as a Kpop idol, Seohyun has proven immense talents as an actress. From her visuals, acting, to versatility, the idol-actress’ abilities are undoubtable. However, she still requires a big breakthrough, perhaps with a more interesting script and a match co-star.
