[NEWS] Jiwoo: “My friends are EXO fans, it’s an honour to be acting with D.O”

When asked whether she was having fun filming for ‘Cart’, Jiwoo said ‘As the director is a woman, I’m having a comfortable time filming. She has a good personality as well, so I feel comfortable asking her questions. I’ve been asking her a lot of questions through Kakaotalk, so I think I’m learning a lot. My seniors are all great too. It’s an honour filming with them.”

She also spoke about acting with trend-dol EXO’s member D.O. When asked, “How was it when you were casted as D.O’s partner/love interest?“, she said, “When I first saw D.O-oppa, it was really strange. I thought, ‘EXO is here!'”, and “My friends are EXO fans too”, showing her teenager-like interest (in the group).

In addition, she praised his acting, saying, “(D.O) Oppa has a good personality and he’s good at acting too. Because he’s good at singing, he’s got a good tone and his enunciation is good, too. I think he has a lot of ambition when it comes to acting,” and “It’s his first time acting, so he shouldn’t have much technique, but he’s good. Whilst monitoring himself, he gets a bit disappointed (t/n: 아쉬워한다; he feels like he could do better) and embarrassed, so when I saw that, I thought, “He could really become an actor“.

However, Jiwoo also feels pressured due to EXO’s high popularity and anti-fans. “At first, I worried a lot. My friends worried a lot as well, as EXO have a lot of fans, but actually, there were more people who were cheering me on than I expected. Of course, there were a lot people who didn’t like (the fact that I was acting with D.O), but there’s a lot of people comforting me and cheering me on to “Film well”, so it’s gotten better.

[NEWS] EXO to Hold 6 Vs. 6 Bowling Match @ EXO’s Showtime

Choosing bowling as their favorite hobby, the EXO members will be going against each other in a round of bowling competition.

January 30’s broadcast of MBC Every1’s EXO’s Showtime will feature the EXO members holding a ‘EXO vs. EXO’ bowling match.

The members will be divided into two teams of six, with Lay and Chan Yeol as the team captains.

Chan Yeol showed his confidence by saying, “I can bowl well,” and even prepared his own wrist guards and Lay claimed, “I’m not lying, I’ve been good at bowling since a long time ago.” Kai also said, “I was a member of a bowling club for six years.”

But the day’s bowling competition involved special rules that made everything they know about bowling useless.

Because of this, Chan Yeol kept on hitting gutterballs, and the other members started complaining, “How can you not even make one good shot. Our team will do good only if Chan Yeol does better.”
