      Apologies for the late reply, Lolo. Yes, I think you nailed it. Yukie’s eyes are amazingly expressive. She doesn’t have to overact. She can convey a wide range of emotions and character types with just her eyes. Her characters are all very unique and believable.

      Kristel, I agree. I try to watch everything she acts in. She has a depth and warmth that makes each character come alive. I wish she’d appear in more dramas. -Jim
