Jiyoung and Lee Joon partner up in 'Iris 2'



Article: 'Iris 2' Jiyoung and Lee Joon's casting confirmed, 'idol actors' to act as couple partners 

Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+460, -93] Why are people putting so much expectations into a passing role? Idols are only being used in this drama for nothing other than to sell the drama internationally

2. [+266, -37] We'll have to wait and see

3. [+266, -62] They'd be the perfect match for the intelligence personnel partners we saw in Iris 1 ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+100, -66] Lee Da Hae is kind of...... all I can think when she acts is that she's only acting to look as pretty as possible!!! I don't like the female cast line-up~~~~ Do they really have no one better??

5. [+68, -26] Why can't singers act? Lee Seung Gi, Lee Jang Woo, Yoona, Suzy - all of them act, why doesn't anyone hate on them? Dramas like Reply and You're Handsome and others with idols did well as long as the characters and stories were well written -- and I think it's going overboard saying that the drama's going to fail before it even started solely because it has a few idols in it. And like the article said, Lee Joon and Jiyoung have been building their acting skills up with dramas and movies and have received praise from directors and fellow casts. Finger warriors, you guys are worse... They're not even main roles so please keep the hate to a minimum. Lee Joon and Jiyoung fighting, I hope Iris 2 does well.

  3. NO! I am cringing at this shit. This was my favorite k-drama of all time and I have been anticipating this sequel since they announced it in 09-10! "Iris" was something special (the 40% rating does not lie). Who the fuck came up with the grand idea to turn this into an idol fest?! Was the horrendous "Athena" not enough? I won't be able to EVER take these two seriously. Jiyoung is a brat and Joon is as dumb as rocks. And before you idiotic stans come jumping down my throat, take off your stan glasses and read this: Joon was nothing special in that movie with Rain and Jiyoung's role in her drama was... no comment.


    You will have one less viewer watching this shit. o/
    & Mark my words, this will be a flop.

  4. i for one dont give a fuck if idols or actors act. because i care more about the plot than the actors. even if all the top good actors are in a drama and the story sucks, i will not watch it. i dont understand the reason people hating on idols acting. you want idols to stay as idols and not do anything else? i call it discrimination.

  5. you sound really angry. and unless you're in south korea, i don't think it matters if you're planning to watch this or not lol

  6. as long as they act well AAAND if the plot is interesting, I'm not against it.

    But, it's only logicall that people feel apprehensive towards these idols because they're everywhere despite some of them not being talented enough.

  7. I am not as pressed at this, but I do have issues when I see idol actors have leading roles as their first acting roles right out of the gate, it's like watching an acting class not a drama, and ppl are saying they will get better, but that is just craziness when there are perfectly talented actors/actresses to fill those roles with legit acting skills. It's painful to watch especially considering that if this fails the idols can just go back to their groups, but the other cast members who are actors and actors only this is their livelihood.

    I don't think idols should be hated, but I am wary and MUCH less likely to watch a drama with idols as leads. There are too many high quality dramas out there to waste time watching awesome learn to act on screen.

  11. wow this drama gone suck big time now. stupid idol actors

  12. lee da hae...not good.ha ji won is much better than LDH.

    if idols is the main leads,it's excrutiating to watch their acting skills.

    i'm more interested with the storyline & the acting.

  14. what did i just read?!! that last comment!! cant believe theres a rational person there!! [+68, -26] its a shame it has few votes compared to the other hateful comments.

    I certainly dont understand the hate... my only concern with idols acting and even "actors" acting is when you obviously can see acting is not their thing... or that theyre on leading roles when they obviously dont have the experience yet. if theyre in supporting roles to start their acting career and theyre great and fit in, then they should go for it...
    personally, if theyre average but it has a good story then I could totally watch without much problem.

  18. Joon is such a great actor wtf are netizen saying??
    He has acted in a Hollywood film and he did great, was a serious character!

  19. in all honesty, i actually prefer this two over janghyuk-lee dahae, for eyecandies' sake. hahaha. janghyuk can be so oot at times and lee dahae can be good when she wants, but can be superstiff as well. so iris 2 can't get a-list like before, i guess? these casts are b-list at best.

  20. and now i'm wondering what kind of reaction these netizens gave when iris announced t.o.p as one of the actors? sculpture-like face? t.o.p oppa saranghae? hahaha.
