    GHS is a good actress, I did not say the best, but not worthy of being called the worst. some people just publish an article or comment bad about someone to others to come and extend
    say that she is not good at everything she does, just confirm that people speaking without knowing, her work is recognized by experts, the films she has made, have been invited has several film festivals and have even won awards, She has been invited as a juror in others, has been recognized and is an ambassador for various events of culture, her paintings are sold in galleries and money is donated to various foundations, in this 2015 documentary in which "acted", narrated and co directed won the top prize at a festival in France, if her performance was bad, she has received such a degree ?, Rain piano composition was no.1 chart QQ Music China. But we do not know because this kind of news about her not published, when it comes to speaking ill of her, They multiply, please before you copy and paste things like, "she is not good in acting, direction, composition , etc. " or "dedicate to one" seek, read, and then comment.
    pdt. forgive my poor English

    For example i could not recognize her in angel eyes at beginning....but slowly she become same one you saw in BOF...kinda twitchy face. Somehow they made make up to make her look different and then they quit it. She do not have presence in any drama she acted.

    I don't want to sound cruel but I'll be a villain anyway. She's a pretty woman but acting is not for her. Or music. Or painting. Sometimes having many skills doesn't automatically make you good at them. You should stick to one and be the best at it. I'll explain how I see it :

    ACTING - It seems she's getting worse at acting..I keep saying this year after year..she should really stop..she's getting so much backlash these days..Her acting is so awkward that it hurts watching her. Trying another approach is a good thing, but exaggerating was never the best of choices. We all know that it can become tiresome watching an annoying actress. At least she made my least favorite list.

    MUSIC - When it comes to music she's not the best singer but she has a sweet voice, perfect for ballads. She's not the best, not the worst..she should find songs that fit her voice more.

    ART - Her paintings are somehow interesting..She has a flavor to them..the style is somehow fresh and unconventional. There are many people who enjoy modern styles of painting/drawing. She's no Picasso but she could still sell some of them.

    Maybe she's good at her other skills but with the ones mentioned above..she didn't convince me. From my point of view I would say that she's testing the waters to see what's best for her..but I could be wrong. After all she said so herself that “There is no such thing as a perfect person in this world. We all must become the main characters or the stars of our lives. We are all different and start differently. But from whatever is our circumstances, it is very important that we find the opportunities to try out what we want to do.” This being said :

    DIRECTING - I heard that her debut as a director with the movie The Peach Tree was a flop with only 30,000* tickets. I haven't seen the movie yet so I can't pronounce myself about it. As far as I can understand, not everybody liked the indie-felt movie. I don't know if I wish to see it either as I'm not really a fan of the synopsis. Maybe it's good, maybe it's bad..those who saw it should talk about it. I do appreciate her courage for trying the field.

    NOVELS - I love books and after reading a review for Tango I became interested in it (always a fan of contrasting characters, it also has a decent rating on goodreads and it seems it sold 30.000* copies in a week). I'll state my opinion after reading it. Peach tree - still not interested in the plot.

    *Random curiosity. What's with the number 30,000? 30,000 tickets, 30,000 copies..is that the exact number of her Korean fanclub members ? It's quite amusing.

    I honestly didn't recognize her in Blood! I haven't seen any of her work since BOF. Wow.

    Don't know why people hate her.. she's not my favorite, but she's not a bad actress.

    This girl seems to be multi-talented, but her acting is very questionable in Blood, Boys Over Flowers, Absolute Boyfriend, and King and I. :-(
