Perhaps, given the reviews, it’s important to keep in mind that Son Naeun faces Lee Bo Young in the drama, one of Korea’s most revered actors, and thus comparisons to the actress are inevitable. Since the drama is still very young (four episodes), Son Naeun still has time to improve and show the depth of his character through his acting.
In addition, not everyone criticized the actor. There have been netizens in online communities who have posted positive reviews for the actors, with some even expressing that they would like to see the actress get more airtime.
