Whoop! One week down already! Today’s question is slightly harder in my opinion, since there’s multiple dramas who always provides a childhood section, but makes it difficult for me to get attached to them:
Your favourite child actors/actresses
Thinking back to some older dramas, I can think of many child actors who gave an amazing performance when it came to the childhood portions. Sadly, they’re all grown up now, and it’s hard for me to classify them as children now. For example, Park Shin Hye and Baek Sung Hyun in Stairway to Heaven were amazing, but they’ve reached their 20s. Jo Jung Eun who played the younger Jang Geum in A Jewel in the Palace was definitely a memorable one, but she’s a year younger than I am currently i.e. no way could she be classified a child anymore.
So then, I try to think much more recent child actors and actresses, and finally thought of a couple.
1. Lee Ja In
Although I dropped My Love Eun Dong a couple of episodes in, I tried hanging on simply because the childhood portions of the drama really drew me in and allowed me to buy the characters. I guess it’s because I felt the older versions didn’t really live up to their younger selves, which led me to dropping the drama unfortunately. She really stole my heart away 🙂
2. Yang Han Yol
I remember all the way back when The Greatest Love was released, starring Cha Seung Won and Gong Hyo Jin. In there, a cute boy named Hyeong Kyu, better known as ‘Ding Dong’ really made me enjoy the drama that much more. His scenes with Cha Seung Won were really adorable and memorable. I’ll have to check out the dramas that he has been in lately.
3. Kim Yoo Bin
Just look at her, just look at her! She was adorable in Oh my Lady, and I remember her giving a fantastic performance as Siwon’s daughter. Will try to find her in other works!
Here’s the 30 Day Asian Drama Challenge if you are interested in joining! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s answers to these questions.
