Netizens are unhappy about Red Velvet Irene's behavior during the 'Radio Star' episode that aired on December 7! 

During the show, Irene was mostly quiet and shy -- which is her normal personality as any fans would know, but many viewers who don't know much about the idol or her usual personality were not comfortable with the way she sat quietly or dodged a lot of the questions. Irene also seemed a bit out of it from time to time, making netizens say things like, "Is she bored? Does she want to work?" Another said, "There are plenty of idols who would love to be where she is. If you don't want to be there, don't."

Some thought that the way she didn't really answer questions was rude. One commented, "Seniors who are much older than she is are asking her questions, and she just smiles and laughs. How rude." One writer said, "Whether you're a good talker or not, if you're on a talk show, you should try your best to talk!" 

The overall lack of energy was the biggest thing that ticked off netizens. One person commented, "She seriously looks like she's spacing out." One said, "SM Entertainment needs to pick better members to send to variety shows." 

In the clip above, even the MCs are commenting on Irene's quietness. Kyuhyun says, "This is the first time you're opening your mouth in an hour since the introduction," and later Kim Gu Ra says, "I haven't seen an idol who is this low-energy since Wonder Girls' Sohee." 

What do you guys think about Irene's attitude on the show?

I feel for Irene, but shouldn't SM just send someone else? Was it just cause they thought Irene is prettiest and most popular?

I can't with people during 2016. She doesn't say a word. "OFFENSIVE!"    Someone says something to a friend and netizens take it out of context "HOMOPHOBIC!"   A song about normal hormones "MYSOGINSTIC!"  Uses informal speech with a very close hyung/unnie "DISRESPECTFUL"  Breathes"THEY'RE TAKING EVERYTHING FOR GRANTED!"     Looks at the opposite gender"SCANDALOUS!!"   I GUESS THEY MIGHT AS WELL NOT EXIST B/C THAT'S OFFENSIVE TOO!

All idols have their strengths and weaknesses.  It is obvious that her weakness is public speaking, which is why I don't understand why would SM send her on Radio Star.  Of all talk shows...Radio Star...really SM?  I watched this episode and although I understand she may have been nervous, it seemed as though she didn't put in any effort and that was frustrating.

ugh, can people give her break. Yeah, she was obviously awkward and quiet so that came off a bit rude. But she is similar to taeyeon where it takes her a bit of time to come out of her shell. I hate when people mistake people's shyness for rudeness. That's not the case at all. You can say all you want that she should have tried to talk more but again, no one can force you to be social if that's not in your nature. It takes time. And furthermore, it might not have been her choice to go on the show so poeple need to stop saying "Why go on a show if you aren't going to talk." You forgot that she's part of a kpop group under a major label that controls how their artists promote themselves. So just give her a break, maybe in the future she'll learn to be more comfortable

To be honest she should've tried to at least talk more even if she isn't talkative, it's a variety. Twice is known to be a very shy and quiet group and yet they still try to talk every time too

I don't think this can be consier as rude. Her personnality simply doesn't match talkshow. They should have send another member but there was nothing rud. She was just shy and quiet but according to her fan that's the way she is all the time ...

These people make me laugh so hard. no wonder lots of Koreans are percieved as fake...the culture permits or worst  still forces it. as normal human beings we have our days when we are sad or happy or just tired..nobody is happy go lucky every time. Let people be humans that they are.
