The first episodes of the long-awaited drama, 'Scarlet Heart: Ryeo', has finally aired, and talk about the drama is firing up online communities everywhere. It seems like some of the actors, specifically IU and EXO's Baekhyun, are failing to live up to the high expectations set by the drama's build up.

Many viewers complained about the idol actors' awkward, unnatural performances, demanding that the two solely focus on music from now on.

Comments stated, "I thought they were competing to see who is the worse actor..Seriously, don't act from now on", "Heol... Baekhyun, acting is not for you", "They both suck so bad. It's shocking", "Wtf is this? Baekhyun doesn't understand his character at all. They probably used him to gain higher viewer ratings but I seriously just can't watch it whenever he comes on", etc.

    Everyone needs to stop criticising IU and Baekhyun for their acting. Yes, their acting is not on par with the other experienced actors but I think they're doing really well and trying very hard to catch up to their seniors. They are known as idols so their sole focus is not acting, they don't make a living out of acting. The fact that they are trying hard despite their busy schedules is good enough. They are definitely more talented and hardworking than a lot of other celebrities as they can act, sing and dance! People need to stop criticising and be more supportive, give them some positive feedback so they can improve. They are probably very stressed and pressured just from being worried that their not doing a good enough job and then there's also people who are criticising them so they feel like they need to live up to the audience's expectations. Give them some slack and be supportive!

    IU is amazingly talented; great singer and a beautiful girl. However I disagree with your "give them some slack and be supportive". It is very clear from this drama that IU is "not great" or even "bad" at acting. Being supportive doesn't necessarily mean we can't give constructive criticism. I've been a fan of her for quite a while and I agree with the comments that her acting is quite horrible in this particular drama, and why is that? Lack of facial emotions- constantly enlarging her eyes etc. This is constructive criticism because we're pointing out where she went wrong. And yes, they DO NEED TO live up to the audience's expectations and I will tell you why. It is their job(literally); they're entertainers. THAT IS THE POINT. Just as you would expect good service from a waitress we also expect good songs/acting from our idols. Excessive hate is unecessary but telling the idols that their acting in this drama is bad because -list the reasons- can give them insight on future work.

    When I saw episode 9, I was Reallly disappointed at IU. Her acting is really poor. I CAN'T realize why so many people speak for her.
