There's acting, overacting, and this. Whatever the hell this is, it's amazing.

Here are reaction shots from a South Korean TV drama called Maybe Love (사랑했나봐). The show follows the exploits of a woman whose life is destroyed after her best friend steals her husband. Here's the show's official English description via the program's Korean network:

A frenemy who wrecks a woman's life and does all this for the sake of her daughter. How will justice prevail in their lives?

How will it? With truly fantastic reaction shots, that's how.

Here's a small sample of Maybe Love's uncut, pure emotions:

Oh, sorry. Turn the sound down.

Mmmm... Jerky.

The man is saying (as YouTube user bosukbanji points out), "Why did Sun-jung take Yena? She is not her daughter." The woman replies, "Yena is Sun-jung's daughter." Then, BAM, reaction shot.


And here's the dubstep remix:
