Despite much hype and strong promotion, Kim Soo Hyun and Sulli's latest film is being torn apart by reviewers and critics, who have deemed the movie as Kim Soo Hyun's worst work. Some have even called the movie the worst film in Korean history.

According to a report by Koreaboo, critics did not take kindly to Kim Soo Hyun's noir action film and did not mince words in describing their criticism. Kim Jong Chul's Extreme Movie Reviews said that it was the worst work that Kim Soo Hyun has done and most probably ever will.

At the premiere of the movie, Kim Soo Hyun reportedly was brought to tears by horrible reviews about his movie "Real." As he gave a speech, he choked up and explained why the movie may not have appealed to the taste of some viewers.

"I've waited for this moment for so very long. I'm both very nervous and thrilled about today. The movie may be a bit unfriendly to you all. But I think that is only natural," Kim Soo Hyun said at the "Real" premiere. "There are a lot of hidden traps in the movie and you're bound to step on them. Even this tear right now is all planned. I hope you give the movie a lot of love and support."

Netizens have mixed reactions about the movie and said that it was a waste of Kim Soo Hyun's talent. Others rallied for "My Love From the Stars" actor to stay strong and get back up after the negative reviews with his next project.

Meanwhile, some fans are blaming the negative publicity surrounding Sulli in the public's reception of the movie. "I feel that the hate for Sulli is influencing the hate for the film. The movie is not that bad compared to other Korean movies. Also, the story isn't complicated. Just wait for the international critics," said one user.

Prior to the release of "Real", Kim Soo Hyun has been very vocal about how emotionally invested he was in his movie comeback and said that he trained and worked really hard to deliver on his dual role. His leading lady Sulli was also not spared from controversy after her controversial love scenes with full nudity was leaked online from the theaters, Korea Portal reported
