As KBS Monday & Tudesday drama ‘Ohlala Couple’ approaches its end, Kim June-eun has been diagnosed with cancer and Shin Hyun-joon is at the airport ready, to depart for the Philippines. Viewers continue to highly praise the wonderful performance of actor Shin Hyun-joon.
Shin is being appraised as an actor who has ‘a thousand faces’ with his perfect performances for the three characters he plays in the Ohlala Couple.
Shin correctly expressed the characteristics of each of his characters to the point that viewers doubted if they had been played by just one actor. He acted as a nasty husband from the start of the drama, then played a genteel hotelier and after a change of body, he performed as a typical Korean housewife. After recovering his soul, he is showing as the entirely different character of a stupid husband who repented of his past deeds.
In the 15th episode that aired on Nov. 19, Shin played the comic, stupid and sincere acts so skillfully to depict his character Su Nam’s abduction of Han Mal-sook (Lee Sook), that his performances could be called “Shin Hyun-joon’s assorted acting gift set”. He played the comic scene without fail when he took Mrs Han Mal-sook by force and called to the chairman in a woman’s voice, and he acted as the true Sun-nam as a very ballsy hotelier by pleading on his knees with the chairman to revisit his hotel.
A representative of the production company of Ohlala Couple said, “Many viewers are saying the various versions of Su-nam’s acts and words seem to be played by different actors. We also sometimes doubt the that the characters in each episode have all been played by Shin Hyun-joon.” He said, “We think Shin Hyun-joon is changing as Su-nam is changing. It proved Shin is completely involved in the acting of his character Su-nam. His wonderful performances including comic acts and emotional acts make one think nobody could play such a character better than Shin.”
