    -Hwang In Youp, the reason it occupies a hot topic! Four famous scenes that captured viewers
    -Hwang In Youp, an acting captivating viewers


    Actor Hwang In Youp is captivating viewers with acting as one with the character.

    Hwang In Youp, who played the role of Han Seo Jun in the tvN drama “여신강림,” is receiving favorable reviews for her exciting acting. In particular, while the response of 1020 viewers is pouring out, Hwang In Youp delicately draws the points of the character with a stable acting ability, making viewers more immersed in the drama. We pointed out the famous scene of Hwang In Youp, which filled the drama with excitement and tenderness.
     
    ◆ “Huh!” The Moment of Falling in Love (Episode 6)

    Hwang In Youp looks cold from the beginning of the drama, but in reality showed a warm and friendly charm. Despite playing with his friends, he showed off his anti-war charm by depicting a warm son and a friendly brother who takes care of a sick mother and cares for his younger sister. The moment when Seo Jun fell in love with Ju-kyung (Mun Ka-young), whom he had always argued with, made even viewers happy. Hwang In Youp comes close to Seo Jun and makes fun of Ju-kyung, making fun of “Ooh!”, and depicts the feeling of excitement that sinks his heart with confused expressions and strangely changed eyes, gradually becoming aware of his heart toward Ju-kyung. I raised my expectations for Seo Jun to go out.

    ◆ Confession of awareness “Honestly Lim Ju-kyung has improved” (Ep. 7)

    It was the moment when Seo Jun perfectly acknowledged his heart for Ju-kyung. At first, I approached Ju-kyung because of Soo-ho (Cha Eun-woo), but gradually I became curious about Ju-kyung and the simple joke became likable. However, he didn't want to admit that he came to like Soo-ho's favorite Ju-kyung. With the sudden appearance of Ryu Hyung-jin and Soo-ho's declaration of war, he could no longer deny his feelings. Hwang In Youp said, “Honestly, Lim Ju-kyung has improved, not baseball. With a provocative confession, "Is there any reason why I shouldn't?", the character's emotional change, which has come to accept his feelings, is expressed in detail. In addition, at the same time as awareness, the tight eyes that faced Soo-ho caught the attention of viewers at once.

    ◆ “Then keep it a secret to me” (Episode 8)

    When Seo Jun was belatedly aware of his heart for Ju-kyung, Ju-kyung's heart was already directed to Soo-ho. To Soo-ho, “Is it first come, first served? What did you like first? Lim Ju-kyung Isn't it important to me?” But Ju-kyung's direct confession, saying, “I like Lee Soo-ho,” must have broken my heart. In this scene, Hwang In Youp's thrilling acting culminated. From the bitter feelings of knowing Ju-kyung's heart toward Soo-ho, and the appearance of comforting Ju-kyung crying at the same time, Hwang In Youp expressed the complex feelings of the character intact.

    ◆ Pushing out “I'm a Man” (Ep. 9)

    This is the scene of Seo Jun's repressed heart. Seo Jun, when he learned that Ju-kyung was dating Soo-ho, was pressing down on his feelings. He deliberately pushed out Ju-kyung, but he said to Ju-kyung who keeps coming closer without knowing his own heart, “Are you easy? "I'm a man too," he said, revealing his hidden feelings. However, Seo Jun's face was full of bitterness, who couldn't even understand this and looked at the bright Ju-kyung. Hwang In Youp created sadness by depicting the emotions of these characters with sad eyes and a low voice. Hwang In Youp's stable acting ability increased the immersion by fully conveying Seo Jun's emotions despite just two words.

    As such, Hwang In Youp depicts fresh love and heartbreaking unrequited love between love and friendship with dense acting. As a result, expectations are raised as to what kind of lines and acting he will capture the hearts of viewers in'여신강림', which is running toward the second half.

    On the other hand, episode 10 of tvN'여신강림', starring Hwang In Youp, will be aired at 10:30 pm on the 14th.
