They"re both good actresses, but I have lớn admit I"m team yoojung. It"s probably because I liked her pairing with yeo jingoo more than ksh"s pairing with him in a different drama.

yeah i"m team yoojung definitely. Something about her in those non-modern (?) dramas that tugs my heart. I loved her in gumiho & definitely in the one with jingoo và sohyun. But one thing that"s definite is that they are known for dramas where they are never happy.

Kim So Hyun is honestly better though I hope phái nam Jihyun can snatch both their wigs, she"s so talented yet still hasn"t had her breakout role.
Really? I like both but have to admit that Yoojung is better esp at emotional scene. She has more nuance in her acting và I like that she"s being able khổng lồ portray many emotions even in a simple scene.
