Overacting in dramas '3 people, 3 colors'... "Thoughtless vs comic vs princess"

2008/07/17 Source

Lately, the overacting of pretty actresses is watchable. Those who have kept one image are showing change.

As melodramatic acting is different with each actor's color, overacting is the same. The peculiarity comes out according to the actor's individuality and role. If the actor adds his or her own creation, everyone produces a different kind of acting. In other words, their own overacting is perfected.

There are three big actresses who are receiving acclaim for their overacting in 2008. Song Yoon-ah, who acts imprudent in SBS "On Air", Lee Soo-kyung, who overdoes comical acting in MBC "The Lawyers of The Great Republic Korea", and Kim Jung-hwa, who overacts as a princess in "When It's at Night".

Song Yoon-ah Imprudence
Song Yoon-ah showed something 180 degrees different from what she always has through SBS "On Air", which ended recently. In order to portray writer Seo Yeong-eun, she made comical gestures and spoke in a high-tone voice. After studying the character with the director and writer, 'Song Yoon-ah's overacting' was born.

After the first airing, 'Song Yoon-ah's overacting' were search keywords on many portal sites. Viewers were not used to her changed image and said, "It's overwhelming to watch" and "It's too fake". There were so many negative comments that even she was shocked.

As the drama developed, viewers grew closer to Seo Yeong-eun, and changed their opinions to "It's fresh" and "It's fun". So it became a time for Song Yoon-ah to expand her limits as an actress. After the end, Park Yong-ha, who also starred with her, said, "If Song Yoon-ah's overacting wasn't there, "On Air" wouldn't have been either". Song Yoon-ah's 'overacting' was the core of the drama.

Lee Soo-kyung Comic
Lee Soo-kyung is adding comedy to her overacting through MBC "The Lawyers of The Great Republic Korea". Her character, Woo Ee-kyeong, has finished last at the Judicial Research and Training Institute. Because of her role, she comes out with a curly perm and is always going left and right.

Woo Ee-kyeong is a passionate lawyer with a plain appearance. Although she works in an empty office, she acts upon her emotions rather than her logic. Because of her quick temper, she argues a lot and little incidents never stop. Her high-tone voice and exaggerated gestures, the basics of overacting, are bringing laughter to the viewers.

This kind of acting is bringing positive feedback. After the first airing, the viewers' forum said, "The character of an awkward lawyer is new" and "The drama is more fun because of Lee Soo-kyung's comical acting". Lee Soo-kyung's acting helped to draw in attention and interest from the viewers.

Kim Jung-hwa Princess disease
In MBC "When It's at Night", Kim Jung-hwa plays Wang Ju-hyeon, a worker of the cultural bureau who is only interested in men. After Park Ji-yoon left in the middle due to personal conflicts, Kim Jung-hwa quickly replaced her. Her character is in her 20s, looking for a husband who has potential into rising into high society.

She contemplates and plans every day to win Huh Cho-hee (Kim Sun-ah), who is receiving attention from all the men. Through this, she is showing comical overacting. Her gesture of flipping her bangs when she talks is already becoming popular.

Viewers are saying, "Kim Jung-hwa had that side too?" and "It's new". The reason why Kim Jung-hwa's acting is drawing interest is because she truthfully expresses the inner thoughts of women in their 20s.
