Portraying Seo Mok Ha, a character completely different from her previous role as the autistic Woo Young Woo, Park Eun Bin seemed poised to captivate audiences once again. Seo Mok Ha, a girl scarred by familial violence, stranded on a deserted island for 15 years, returns to society at the age of 31 with dreams of a new life in Seoul. 

Yet, as the drama unfolds, viewers are finding it challenging to detach Park Eun Bin’s current portrayal from the impression of Woo Young Woo.

Fans initially lauded “Castaway Diva” for the anticipation of Eun Bin’s dynamic range, expecting her to breathe life into yet another complex character. 

However, as the drama progresses, some find her portrayal of Seo Mok Ha too similar to Woo Young Woo, sparking discussions about whether this is an acting choice or a directorial influence.

From her style, expressions to her walk, Park Eun Bin gives the impression that she has not been able to escape Woo Young Woo. This may be the first time in her career that Park Eun Bin has received such divided opinions about her acting.

In addition to some negative reactions, some viewers believe that Seo Mok Ha has difficulty in social communication due to being stranded on a deserted island for 15 years, which is why her actions sometimes resemble those of Woo Young Woo.
