Challenge: Day 4 – Favorite Actor & Actress
Ahh! This is an IMPOSSIBLE question that cannot be answered. However, I will valiantly attempt despite the unfeasibility of this while pulling out all my hair and drenching my keyboard with tears! (That last part may have been a slight exaggeration)
Korea: Lee Joon-Ki
I think it’s only fair to choose Lee Joon-Ki, after all I’ve seen him in half-a-dozen dramas (though I didn’t finish them all, but it wasn’t because of Joon-Ki!). I wasn’t extremely taken with him when I first watched him but he grows on you until you can’t deny how good he is. He just brings so many emotions to his roles and makes you root for his characters every time.
Japan: Sato Takeru
Sato Takeru played Rurouni Kenshin in the three Rurouni films. It’s very difficult for actors to play sweet or naïve characters without coming off as unintelligent or dimwitted but for me Sato Takeru effortlessly portrays innocence, just as he does maturity. I recently watched him in a J-drama and loved his character portrayal.
China: Wallace Huo
I admit it. I’ve only seen one drama with Wallace Huo. But I do want to see more and hopefully will. He’s one of those actors that has that natural, angst-filled intensity much like Richard Armitage.
Taiwan: Roy Chiu
Okay, so I’ve only seen Roy Chiu in one drama also. But he was seriously adorable in it and really the ideal “boy-next-door” actor.
Korea: Gong Hyo-Jin
Aww, Gong Hyo-Jin, so perfect with her sweet, mild voice, her adorable smile and overall charm. I just love her acting to pieces. She always makes the perfect heroine.
Japan: Rinko Kikuchi
For a Japanese actress I like, I think Rinko Kikuchi is a good choice. I’ve only seen her in Pacific Rim but she really shone in that role and I’d like to see her in more in the future.
China: Zhang Ziyi
Who doesn’t love Zhang Ziyi? Technically, she’s a Chinese film actress as she’s never acted in a drama. She’s stunning and always brings an intense emotional undercurrent to her characters even when playing icy personalities. She’s got to be a real life princess.
Taiwan: Alice Ke
Alice Ke is so adorable! She has that natural “girl-next-door” vibe and a down-to-earth feel that I really like (and can be hard to find) in actresses.
