[HanCinema's News] Kim Jae-wook Maximizing Sex Appeal on "Her Private Life"


Kim Jae-wook's been attracting attention for his acting work in "Her Private Life". Mainly what he's been doing has been to communicate passion nonverbally. His hands, eyes, and torso are being effectively utilized to communicate a passionate, crazy attitude shimmering beneath the surface.

His body language in general has also been extremely communicative even in non-explicitly romantic moments. Kim Jae-wook as Ryan Gold has moved quickly and decisively to shield his leading lady Deok-mi, as played by Park Min-young, even to the extent of building a fake public relationship with her. His instinctively protective nature is something even male viewers can appreciate.

But there's also the way Ryan Gold looks at Deok-mi, which effectively conveys warmth and is strong enough even on its own to change the tonal direction of a scene. Deok-mi's apparent obliviousness to Ryan Gold's gaze naturally only further improves the romantic sentiment of the performance.

Yet subtler movements as with hands can also be more easily seen in a reciprocal light. Apparently minor gestures like these have been effectively used to symbolically build up these two leads getting closer together emotionally.
