As the news went viral, many netizens reacted to the casting. Unfortunately, it seems not many are convinced that casting Jisoo in the highly-anticipated movie was the best decision.

  • “Jisoo?”
  • “It’s a movie and not a series? Why? Wouldn’t it be better if this was a series? Plus, Jisoo seems like a really weak casting choice for a movie. There isn’t one actor that I’m looking forward to (in a movie).”
  • “She really doesn’t match Lee Ji Hye (Jisoo’s character)… Honestly, I thought the movie did a good job of casting until now…”
  • “These comments are worrying me.”
  • “Huh? She’s Ji Hye?”
  • “F@ck. I wish they left Omniscient Reader alone… Sigh.”
  • “Jisoo… Ah… Goodbye…”
  • “Ji Hye…”
  • “Jisoo???”
  • “Wow, this was a movie I was looking forward to, but then they sprinkled Jisoo on this… Sigh… LOL.”
