Sooyoung’s definitely got potential to do well as an actress, think. Lee Jong Hyuk is pitch perfect as the grumbly, gruff Seo Byung Hoon, owner of Agency Cyrano, and as expected, imbues his character with very nice flashes of nuance and depth to balance out the grumpy. Lee Chun Hee is quite lovely as the mysterious Master next door.Master had relatively less screen time, but Lee Chun Hee made every scene count.And I’m glad that I took the time to check it out, coz in spite of its flaws, this show turned out to be a fun little watch with more pluses than minuses.
Thinking of this as a manhwa-esque sort of world helps, though. On top of that, some cases drag for too long, &/or aren’t as interesting as others. Contrived plot devices are sometimes employed, with the biggest offender being 4. With an ensemble cast, it’s always hard to achieve a cohesive tone across everyone’s varying degrees of acting prowess, and in this ensemble cast, that unevenness definitely shows. She managed the more emotional scenes with as much dexterity as the cheerful sunny scenes, and I was impressed.Being the kpop noob that I am, I didn’t even realize she’s an idol actor, until I stumbled on the information by accident.
