Red Velvet's Joy makes her acting debut with a lead role in "The Liar and His Lover."

Red Velvet Joy's appointment as the female lead in "The Liar and His Lover" has been making rounds on the internet for the past few months. Many netizens questioned the idol's ability, considering that this will be her first acting project.

The newest drama finally started airing on tvN on Monday, and as expected, netizens were quick to point out Joy's lacking as an actress after the premiere episode of "The Liar and His Lover."

According to Allkpop, many netizens criticized the Red Velvet member for "not being good enough" for the female lead role in "The Liar and His Lover." Others even said Joy looked awkward in the drama.

"I like Joy but her acting makes me cringe," a commenter said. Another one posted, "She needs a secondary role first for experience. It was a little awkward watching it. She's pretty though."

While the Red Velvet member is receiving so much hate for getting the lead role in "The Liar and His Lover," her fans came to rescue the idol from the netizens' outrage and criticisms.

"This is her first drama. Why are people being so hard on her? She's not meant to be an actress. She is still learning," a fan countered the critics.

Netizens spared no one as they also slammed Lee Hyun Woo for his acting in the drama series. Despite this, the two promised to display their "off the charts" chemistry in "The Liar and His Lover."

Soompi reported the actor has been taking care of Joy on the set of their newest drama. Hence, the Red Velvet member immediately felt comfortable around her leading man.

"I could feel the trust in Joy's eyes when she looked at me while filming. Though I was nervous on set, I found myself getting lost in her eyes," Lee Hyun Woo said.

Catch these two in "The Liar and His Lover" every Monday and Tuesday at 11:00 p.m. only on tvN.
