Her explosive emotional acting that gives goosebumps
In the third and fourth episodes, Lee Yeon Seo receives a huge shock after her and her family’s driver Jo Seung Wan (played by Jang Hyun Sung) passes away. At his wake, she tries to smile while holding back tears, as she thinks about how before he died, he told her he wanted to see her bright smile.

This was especially evident in the ninth and tenth episodes, as Lee Yeon Seo straightforwardly approaches Dan (played by INFINITE’s L) and asks, “I thought you liked me. Do you like me?” Her strong stance in trying to discover his feelings left viewers’ hearts fluttering.
In episodes 11 and 12, Dan is adorably giving Lee Yeon Seo a piggyback, when she solemnly asks with tears in her eyes, “Why don’t you like me?” Through her question, her real feelings in being unable to trust and therefore locking herself up were revealed. Even in such an emotional scene, Shin Hye Sun was able to connect to viewers with her relatable acting.
The effort behind her euphoric ballet dancing
Shin Hye Sun continues to wow the audience with her impressive transformation into a ballerina. Her perfected ballet scenes are helping to upgrade the excellence of the drama, all through her diligent practice.
