    When you have Suzy and Yoona as the representative female idol-actors versus Hyungsik and Siwan as representative male idol-actors the difference in acting ability is too glaring and obvious. Just compare D.O to his label-mate, Joy. Both are SM”s new generation of acting idols but one worked his way up with supporting roles, the other takes lead roles right off the bat. One has been acknowledged for his acting ability, the other gets endless criticism. I really think there”s a valid reason why there are disparing remarks when its female idols vs male idols. Unless casting directors start paying attention to the female idols who can act/has potential like Eunji, Sooyoung and Minah, its always going to be the case.
