Kim Dong Wook is the Standout of The Guest with Soulful and Gripping Performance


I went into recently finished OCN supernatural thriller drama The Guest for Kim Jae Wook and left adding Kim Dong Wook to my stable of charismatic leading men who happen to be great actors. I’m thrilled Kim Dong Wook is getting so much attention and love for his role as psychic medium turned taxi driver Yoon Hwa Pyeong, a role that is the warm beating heart of the trio of broken kids turned resilient adults who are leading the front line fight against a dark demonic force. The drama was scary in all the right ways, fleshing out not just central characters but also side supporting roles so everyone mattered. And because everyone mattered, all the hurt inflicted by the big bad was that much harder to endure especially seeing it consume Kim Dong Wook’s character but thankfully gave us a hopeful ending. It was a great role and he made it come alive masterfully. Congrats to this very underrated actor for getting his due moment to shine.
