    i’m wondering when it was mentioned in other articles with the same topic that SUZY was awarded as BEST ACTRESS…REALLY??? from what i’ve watched, it’s FAR from being best…popular yes but best, i think people who approved of this need to look upon the STANDARD of being best in acting. She sucked in acting, it seems that she had injected BOTOX since her facial expression is monotone…

  • Cláudio Hase

    Where Doona Bae ?
