Assalamualaikum . Wawaa great when hearing D.O Kyung Soo want Acting .
Rising K-pop boy group EXO member D.O. will soon to start filming his first-ever big screen feature.
D.O.’s debut film “Cart” (tentative title) has finalized its casting boat and is set to crank in this Saturday, aiming at open this year, the movie’s producing firm Myung Fillm said on Thursday.
Along with main actors Yum Jung-ah, Moon Jung-hee, Kim Young-ae and Kim Kang-woo, the idol star will co-star supporting actors Chun Woo-hee of 2012 box office hit “Sunny” and Lee Seung-jun of KBS hit drama “Secret Love.”
In the film about the movement of contract workers who got unfair dismissal from a major supermarket, the main vocalist of EXO takes on a boy named Tae-young, son of veteran cashier Sun-hee, the average yet strong Korean mom.
Produced by veteran film studio Myung Film of box office hits “Forever The Moment” and “Architecture 101,” the film will also start crown-funding its producing budget on Saturday.
EXO member D.O is making it clear that he is firmly establishing himself as an actor.
Recently, D.O has been cast in the movie ‘Cart’, as well as SBS’s upcoming Wed/Thurs drama, ‘It’s Alright, It’s Love’ (script by Ro Heekyung – directed by Kim Gyutae), marking his challenge towards the acting industry. While promoting as an actor, as opposed to a singer, D.O intends to use a different name. He will be using his real name, Do Kyungsoo. A representative from D.O’s agency, S.M. Entertainment, announced, ‘Up to now, D.O has been introduced as a cast member of ‘Cart’ using his stage name, D.O, but from now on, while promoting in his acting carrer, he intends to use the name Do Kyungsoo.’
There are many instances of a singer-turned actors using a different name for their acting careers. Singer Rain uses his real name, Jung Jihoon, when promoting as an actor. D.O will also reintroduce himself under the name of Do Kyungsoo, while promoting as an actor.
‘It’s Alright, It’s Love’ is a story about the lives and loves of everyday people who are forced to suppress their true feelings. Actor Do Kyungsoo’s role in ‘It’s Alright, It’s Love’ is that of Han Kangwoo, who dreams of becoming a writer. Han Kangwoo’s wish is to become a best-selling writer, in order to make his mother happy.
‘It’s Alright, It’s Love’ will be broadcasted in July, following the conclusion of ‘Three Days’.
