I don't really think that his acting was bad in "My I'd is Gangnam Beauty". But it's true he's an amateur in acting world. He's still learning. In his right now ongoing drama "True Beauty" we can see he's playing that same tsundere cold hearted type of role as Lee Suho. And I can say his acting skill definitely got better. He just have to keep going.

When I first saw Cha Eun Woo in Gangnam beauty I was pretty much convinced that those cold eyes and mean face was his real life resting face. But then I saw him in Revenge note and I literally went "Noooooooo, these two can't be the same person." Cha Eun Woo has the most expressive eyes I have ever seen, like ever, evvvverrrrr! I am pretty much amazed by how he could just flip into those cold eyes in Gangnam beauty. If that doesn't say much about his acting skills, I don't know what does!

Kyung Syuk is supposed to be an awkward, anti social, aloof, legendary handsome guy, what else do they want to see?

He's great but yeah he runs like a quiet cat. it would be awesome though if he was cast in some sort of futuristic movie that would be more suited to this level of stoicism.

I think cha eun woo is doing a great job. It's not easy to act. So why did netizens always say that he lack of actong skill. We should give him a support, of course.

He's too wooden and his expression doesn't change. A cold guy should still show some emotion. So far he has been happy, amused, upset, frustrated but his face and actions are all the same.

If he is supposed to be playing a socially awkward and inexperienced with love guy...I think he is nailing it. Whether he has the capability of a wider range only time will tell. And yes...he is very handsome so the genius face is definitely being pulled off.
