"Heartstrings" gave Jeong the leading role and reunited the popular coupling between him and Park Shin-hye. Again Jeong"s acting was rocky, but the experience he gained from "You"re Beautiful" definitely showed, especially in the line delivery and the more relaxed body language. Jeong is an actor who learns a lot from experience.
This was shown in "Marry Him If You Dare" where Jeong was once again a second lead. At times Jeong was very convincing as Park Se-joo. It helped that he worked beside immensely talented and experienced actors who he could learn from and emulate. But there were still moments where his acting was visible. He wasn"t Park Se-joo, but Jeong Yong-hwa acting like Park Se-joo.
In his upcoming drama "Three Musketeers", hopefully Jeong will show continued improvement on his acting so that his efforts remain hidden and the audience only sees the results
