"I don't think I'm in a position to say anything about that because I sometimes visit the music industry as well. When idols come to film, we work with them as actors, not idols. I've worked with them often and they work hard just like actors. I view them positively because they work hard enough to not be criticized. They're good at what they do, and you can't expect everyone to be good at it from the get go. People should watch over them and give them some space. I wasn't great starting off either."

1. [+516, -26] Can't compare them to So Ji Sub... So Ji Sub is good at acting which is his original profession and only sings once in a while unlike idols who suck at both singing and acting... I really can't stand the second hand embarrassment from idol acting...

2. [+389, -12] "visiting the music industry"  ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Not only is he handsome and a good actor but witty too ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+381, -29] No one would hate the idols if they were good at their original profession and good at their acting side jobs ㅋㅋㅋ Look at Eunji, IU, and Seo In Guk. They're all good at singing and are even good at acting so they don't get hated on.

4. [+24, -3] It was ridiculous when singers who can't even act stole all of the rookie actors' jobs in dramas and then get pissed when Infinity Challenge released digital songs ㅋ Go practice your singing... Why're you even trying to act when you can't even sing?

5. [+12, -3] There's a vast difference between sucking at both and doing decently at least in your original profession
