    If only people could spread love as easily as they spread hate. Apart from Water God, I've only seen her in Sensory Couple and whilst she had difficulty showing facial expression I don't think she's the worst actress because let's face it there's worse. Some people can't kiss properly but that doesn't mean they don't deserve the role which in a few places I've seen people say. There must be a reason she got the parts of all her dramas. I will continue to enjoy watching her dramas as I've been enjoying them so far.

      I loved her in Sensory Couple. I would definitely rewatch but only the cute bits because the villain got on my wick even more than the Strong Woman kidnapper! XD

    She's not the worst actress out there, she's not ugly but in almost all her dramas she has an expressionless face that almost says nothing most of the time... Some of her dramas had strong story lines but her acting and her presence made it hard to watch and bear... no hate on her, I'm pretty disappointed, gave her several chances to see her improvements, maybe she's good behind the scenes, but if that's the case the director needs to catch her skills or put her in the right roles that will best suit her. I always feel like she doesn't put her entire self out there. And if she does, maybe it's just the way her face looks that doesn't allow her to give off a strong acting presence. She's a beautiful woman and I can see why some say she's talented, I mean she did get casted /pair with other great actors out there. I've seen her in fashion king, sensory couple, when a man loves, and now haebaek, for the most part I've been disappointed because those storylines were pretty strong but how she displays herself in her character roles are not fitting for the story. If that's the directors want to present the character of the story, then sure. Maybe I'm not watching her best works but I've given her 4-5 chances and out of those few I have been rarely impressed with her character build. I'm sorry Shin Se Kyung, I guess I had lots of hope for you. I really hope you do better with more fitting roles for you. <3

      Omg. you've no idea how much I agree with you. She's pretty but her acting skills have rarely improved, gave her so many chances, I've been disappointed in Fashion King, When a man loves, scent, and now Habeaek.... I swear.... I mean maybe I'm not watching her best works but I've already given her 4-5 chances... cmon Shin Se Kyung....

      Praise you definitely said it all she's a great actress she's actually one of my top k-actresses, but I still don't get why she's getting so many hate? Like her dramas are pretty good so are her acting

      I think many dislike her acting for the same reason as I - in some of her roles she fails to evoke sympathy. It might be personal preference, but her wooden expressions and small range of emotions usually leave me unable to immerse myself in the drama. She chooses interesting dramas so I always try to watch her new work (currently watching The Bride of Habaek), but every time I have this same problem. I just feel NOTHING for the character she's portraying. It doesn't require much to make me cry, but so far she's unable to do that. Actors I enjoy don't really have to be awesome actors, but they need to be able to make me feel something.

      For reference my favourite actresses include: Yoon Eun Hye, Park Shin Hye, Moon Chae Won, Moon Geun Yong, Gong Hyo Jin, Uee, Choi Ji woo, Kim Hee Ae, Soo Ae, Choi Kang Hee, Hwang Jung Eum

      edit: I wanted to add that I know nothing about her personal life. So I'm not disliking her acting because of a scandal or something like that.

    Can anyone please tell me or comment objectively on Shin Se Kyung's acting?
    I really wanted to know if she is a good actress. When I opened the list of lead roles of Bride of the Water God, I saw that she was playing the role of So Ah. I don't want to be disappointed with this drama especially since she is paired with Nam Joo Hyuk, he may still be new in the industry but he is a great actor. And mainly because I am a fan of the manga. So Ah in the manga is reserved yet strong and gentle at the same time. I want to know if she could handle that kind of role.

      I am not sure if she can handle this role or not but I don't like her as an actor she already ruined two dramas for me and one with 1 of my fav actor.

      She's not a bad actress she's okay the only thing is that TBOH is like totally changed from the manhwa n I'm not even sure if NJH can take on the role since he's still new so I'm just a little skeptical about TBOH

      She actually portrays her roles really well that's why she's getting the hate the role she chose were suppose to be cruel n cold blooded which she did well. People shouldn't get mad at her she's just acting out her role or whatever the director/screenwriter gives her

      I don't think NJH will be able to pull of his role, although I am a great fan of him, I think he needs more experience. I hope that she will be able to pull it off
