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.
