‘Generational trend’ idol group EXO’s member, D.O, will join the line of ‘acting-dols.’
D.O has been casted for the movie ‘Cart’ (Director Boo Jiyoung, Producter Myung Pilleum) that has already confirmed casting of actress Yeom Jungah, Moon Junghee, etc. A movie representative has stated, “We had good conversations with D.O’s side. As long as there is nothing major changing, D.O will feature in ‘Cart.’”
‘Cart’ is product that draws out the story of the happenings of a single mom after she was laid off working in a megastore as a contract worker. D.O will appear as the son of the Yeom Jungah who will play the female main character.
D.O is the first member who has officially started acting amongst the EXO members. There have been members who have acted in music videos but there has not been a member who has acted in a drama.
Another movie representative has stated, “Actor turned idols are making a spot for themselves in the drama and movie world quickly. As EXO has recently shown their quick growth acceleration, the competition to cast them has become that much more fierce. D.O is the starting point.”
Meanwhile, D.O hurt his right ankle during a performance at the recently held ‘2013 MAMA.’ D.O, who has continuously been gaining treatment, is said to be starting filming soon.
