There's no sophomore jinx.
Many actors and actresses who are into their second year of acting are being focused on right now. The sophomore jinx which is a kind of slump one goes through at about their second year since their debut, does not apply to Jo Jung-suk, Kim Go-eun and Lee Jong-suk. They have taken their places as mature actors and actress.
Jo Jung-suk debuted last year with "Architecture 101" and continues to star in highlighted historical dramas "The Face Reader" and "The King's Wrath". They are both highly anticipated dramas due to their storyline and lineup starring Song Kang-ho. Jo Jung-suk takes on the role of a killer who goes through hardships with Song Kang-ho and tries to kill the king, Hyun Bin.
Kim Go-eun debuted with the movie "A Muse" last year and she chose to work with a top actor. She stars in the martial arts movie "Memories of the Sword" with world star Lee Byung-hun. Kim was also called 'the next Jeon Do-yeon' when she first came out and now she grabbed the opportunity to co-star with the famous actress in this movie within a year of her debut. She's currently filming the thriller "Monster".
Lee Jong-suk is also one who is irrelevant to the sophomore jinx. He debuted last year with the movie "Korea" and he's headlining movies in less than a year. He's currently busy with his first leading movie "NO-BREATH" which is about swimmers. He starred in "The Face Reader" as Song Kang-ho's son.
Their activities are being more noticed with the varying number of Korean movies produced. It seems like this is due not only to the abilities of the actors and actresses but also because the genre in which movies are being made, is becoming more and more diverse.
