Nam Goong Min Cast in Listen to My Heart

Nam Goong Min has been cast alongside Kim Jae Won, Hwang Jung Eum, Song Joong Ki and Ryu Si Won in Listen to My Heart. His character, Jang Jun Ha, abandons his father and younger sister in order to gain peace of mind for himself. Nam Goong Min released a statement through his agency Bel Actors Entertainment saying that he’s come across a character that he felt compelled to take and that he’s ready to show his viewers the skills he possesses as an actor through the character of Jang Jun Ha.

Of all the wooden actors I’ve seen, Nam Goong Min has to be one of the prettiest, if not the most pretty, so I can’t tell you how I’m feeling about the promise he makes to show us his acting chops. He was slightly better than mediocre in the terrible One Fine Day, and he was even more wooden than I’d remembered him to be in the zany Birth of a Rich Man, albeit an incredibly gorgeous block of wood. However, Listen to My Heart is hosting a slew of actors/actresses that I don’t necessarily love but am optimistic about, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how Nam Goong Min fares.

Not only will I be reviewing dramas that aired this year that I watched, but a few that I watched for the first time this year although they aired in previous years. Brace yourselves, this is going to be a long one.
