Day 2: Your Favorite Male Lead Character - Kim Jae Won as Cha Dong Joo (Can You Hear My Heart?)
Again, like day 1, I had a hard time choosing. I had Gong Yoo in Coffee Prince, Ji Sung in Protect the Boss, and Jung Woo Sung in Padam Padam up there too.
In the end, I chose Kim Jae Won’s role in Can You Hear My Heart?.
His character isn’t one you come across often in any kind of show. At least, none that I’ve seen.
Suffering from deafness caused by a fall when he was young, Cha Dong Joo, learning to read lips, is able to live a seemingly normal life.
Then there was the fact that he was a chaebol that didn’t act like one. In most dramas, chaebols act like you would expect one to act. As if they’re higher than everybody else because of their rank and money. Cha Dong Joo though, is different. He’s incredibly nice to everybody even from a young age, making him a likable character from start to finish.
On that note, Kang Chan Hee as young Cha Dong Joo was also amazing.
I’m never sure how I’ll feel about child actors, but after 6 episodes of Kang Chan Hee, I was actually a little sad to see him go.
:’) Chan Hee did an amazing job, especially as this appears to be the first drama/movie he’s been in.
Hooked from ep and all of the child actors, Chan Hee, Sae Ron & Young Joo were awesome. <3
5 episodes down, 25 more to go. Can’t wait :D
