In the first episode of "To The Beautiful You," which aired Wednesday, we saw the beginnings of Koo Jae Hee and her infiltration of the elite sports high school in order to be next to high jumper Kang Tae Jun.
She comes to the school with high hopes but she accidentally reveals her teddy-bear shaped underwear upon their first meeting. She is also humiliated and made fun of by classmates who are either jealous of her or bully her because she's new.
In the school bathroom, where a fight broke out, Jae Hee stood her ground against a boy and didn't give up even when she took a punch. When she was in the shower, she quickly put on a towel when she realized that she could be discovered by Tae Jun.
Audiences responded to Sully's acting very positively, saying "Sully's acting is above expectations!" "It's definitely clear that she was a child actor." "She pays attention to the details." "They're so synchronized!"
Sully has been acting since she was a child but she has never been a full-time actress. But even from the first episode, she is proving to the audience that she is the only one for the job. She showed special passion for the project even at the press conference where she said that she felt like the shorter hair was more according to her personality.
SHINee Minho had always been belittled as a young idol but this is his time to shine. He played the cold, sometimes brash character of Tae Jun very well but the rudeness comes from his family so he will be showing his other more warm side as he becomes closer to Jae Hee.
In the first episode, during a soccer match, Tae Jun tells her that he will share a room with her if she is able to score a goal but then shows his warm side when he carries her to the nurse's room when she is injured. He captured the hearts of audiences when he lifted her into his arms with ease. Although many worried about his acting skills, he put them to rest with the first episode. Since being cast as a high jumper, he has been training as a high jumper, training the same amounts and it is clear that he is feeling the responsibility of leading such an anticipated drama.
Breaking the stereotype of the idol-actor, they are both receiving very positive reviews that are saying the two are perfect for the job and they have silenced many of their former critics.
The audience must wait and see how Sully and Minho will now carry the story, with heightened expectations.
