1. [+37,119, -1,989] Let's please use real actors in positions requiring actors
2. [+35,051, -2,724] Honestly, aside from Lee Jun Ki and Kang Haneul, the rest of the cast is all pretty awkward with their acting, but I'm sure a lot of the blame is being put on IU because she's the female lead. I honestly believe that this is karma for all of the scandals that she's swept under the rug and the public's response to such an action. She got hit with a boomerang. She claimed that she could act as nasty as she wanted and people would still be nice to her. Nope~ we won't be. I hope she's realized that with this controversy.
3. [+2,9213, -1,844] Really, stop using idols in dramas now. We have so many rookie actors ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
4. [+28,862, -2,132] She already has such a negative image. The public is merely choosing to change the channel when seeing her on the small screen...
5. [+26,691, -1,727] She needs to just stick to what she's good at. Her image is already so tarnished, why take a job that she's clear ly not good at? She doesn't have what it takes to lead an entire drama on her own.
6. [+9,305, -637] This drama would've probably hit 10% in viewer ratings if the female lead wasn't IU
7. [+8,839, -472] You have to admit the female lead is what's disappointing about this drama...
8. [+8,442, -451] The way she opens up her eyes all wide when she's acting surprised ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I honestly can't describe it in words. Please stick to singing~~~
1. [+2,877, -146] She had no face to lose... I just feel bad for Lee Jun Ki
2. [+2,732, -153] So why suffer all this embarrassment when you could've used a real actor to begin with?
3. [+2,417, -132] The drama was doomed from the start with IU's casting... pairing her with Lee Jun Ki.. really?
4. [+249, -4] IU: (o . o)9 what did I do?
5. [+244, -6] Not only is the acting hopeless but so are the scriptwriter and director... They really need to release a transparent report on where all the investment funding went for this drama. Sucks for the rest of the cast...
6. [+198, -7] Acting genius IU ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ the phrase of the year
7. [+190, -8] She's going to inconvenience a lot of other actors if she ever decides to pick up another drama... I doubt anyone's going to want to work with her.. and didn't the director for this praise IU as an acting genius? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Surely he was farting out of his mouth, right? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
8. [+136, -8] This case shows the difference of what you're good at versus what you like... she has the type of talent as a singer that can melt your ears even with half hearted singing but acting is just something that she'll always be awkward in even if she stays up all night practicing...
