Girls' Generation's Seohyun spoke about the criticism on her role. 

Seohyun is playing the female lead of new MBC drama 'Thief, Mr. Thief' and some people were skeptical that she would be able to take on such a role. At the press conference for the new production on May 12, Seohyun opened up about the criticism regarding her role.

She stated, "Honestly, I think the criticism is natural. I haven't participated in many productions as an actress so I think it's natural for people to be concerned." Seohyun continued, "I think I really need to show myself as an actress through Kang Soju. That's also why I feel more responsibility. I will work hard as Kang Soju so please enjoy it with a pleasant view."

The first episode of 'Thief, Mr. Thief' is airing on May 13.

Please people, i know some of you dislike her acting because many her roles didn't make it. I must say, i am her fan since debut but i don't really like her acting before until now. she changes a lot in this drama. She nailed her character as kang so joo. so, please watch the drama first before you write some bad comments. Maybe she'll surprise you :))

That may be possible. Alot of celebrities in Korea get actinf roles just because they are famous..

Being a public figure just terrifies me. Receiving so much "criticism" (often of which people will turn into malicious insults) is a horrifying thing. Dude, I just express a simple opinion of mine and a multitude of people come herding towards me to degrade me as a person just because I showed that I'm different from them. I also frankly get upset over this (which I wish wouldn't happen) because I can't handle insulting very well. Props to public figures who endure such terrible ordeals constantly.

Honestly, she should've gotten more supporting roles or web dramas under her belt to get experience.. People saying that she has a ton of Musicals experiences should keep in mind that musicals and dramas are completely different and cannot be grouped together. TBH she would have not gotten this role if she weren't in GG & SM. Think of the hundreds of rookie actors who have been in supporting roles forever waiting to get their chance as a lead actor...

Crap actress with bad speech, so-so visuals, un-charming personality that can’t even make up for the lack of visuals and terrible boring with no on-screen presence...

RedVelutionary Longan_Lychee Saturday, May 13, 2017

LOL I don't even know what to say to this...

I know you just want attention with ur comment. But please, watch her acting in this drama. She nailed it.

Longan_Lychee misskkot Sunday, June 18, 2017

nahh, i’ve watched and still no on-screen presence... sorry if my opinion was too harsh though...

Roslolian Saturday, May 13, 2017

LOL what do you mean Seohyun can't act? She has been to 100 musicals as the main lead or one of the main actors and she has also voiced over movies in Despicable me 1 and 2. This is on top of being part of Korea's most successful Girl Group for 10 years, as an idol she needs to act to show the emotion of the song. Seohyun saying she can't act is just her being humble, she can act really well and she has the pedigree for it already as her resume is full of acting roles.

I'm sure she probably can. Perhaps it has to do with the difference between stage, voice an screen acting though. I haven't seen her in anything but when you stage act you have to do everything like 10x bigger and more dramatic, and voicing for animation also requires acting more dramatic. Perhaps she's just still trying to find the balance between them.

She can't act. She's too awkward and has always the same facial expression. But she gets roles thanks to SM

skididdlepopper littlemissnoname Saturday, May 13, 2017

well how about you wait until after this drama and then say whether she can or can't. People are constantly trying to improve themselves v.v

littlemissnoname skididdlepopper Saturday, May 13, 2017

she majored in acting. and the fact that even after majoring she still can't act says it all. some people just have not enough talent for certain things, no matter how much you try.

skididdlepopper littlemissnoname Saturday, May 13, 2017

isn't that a little too harsh??? Give people a chance O_o I'm pretty sure she'll do well :) well... I'm hoping haha This is all i have to say on the matter. Give Seohyun a chance and don't shoot her down yet :)

RedVelutionary littlemissnoname Saturday, May 13, 2017

Not enough talent? LOL, that was quite a long time ago. Her acting is great now, did u see it? Nah, you'd love her if you did. :)

littlemissnoname RedVelutionary Sunday, May 14, 2017

I tried. And her acting bores me to death.

misskkot littlemissnoname Sunday, June 18, 2017

I think when you dislike someone, you'll never see the goodness on that person. Fyi, the rating of thief mr thief is increasing every weekend and it almost got 1st place recently. You should watch before judging her acting.

Seohyun is the epitome of grace, poise, and character. She takes criticism constructively and will, by her own words, try to improve. But, I think she easily gets her feelings hurt and hides it by addressing criticism openly. Let's be nice and give her a chance. ^^

kpoplolita Friday, May 12, 2017

i wouldnt say shes the best actress but she def killed it in scarlet heart ryu

lyricaldancer10 Friday, May 12, 2017

Improvement comes with experience. I made sure she will get better after a while
