EXO's D.O starts filming 'Secret' movie after wrapping up 'The Moon'
It is a well-known fact that almost all the members of EXO are extremely skilled as actors, other than being good-looking musical talents. Sehun, the maknae of EXO, has lived up to this statement after his bubbly appearance in the fourth episode of the ongoing SBS and Viu K-drama co-production, ‘Now We Are Breaking Up,’ in a cameo role.
But that is not all in terms of EXO members' acting projects as the group’s vocal king, Do Kyungsoo (well known by his stage name D.O) is now the one actor every director wants. D.O was discharged from the military after his mandatory military service on January 25 this year and he was immediately booked and busy soon after. In February of 2021, it was announced that D.O was to star as the main lead in the remake of a Taiwanese film.

D.O in the lead role for 'Secret'
D.O perfectly fit the expectations of makers since they had specific requirements for the role of the main character — a student who plays the piano. As per reports from fans who saw D.O’s filming schedule, it is reported that D.O has already begun working on the movie as of November 25. The movie ‘Secret’ has been grabbing a lot of headlines over the last few days, not only for starring EXO’s D.O in the lead role but also for the stellar lineup of other actors on the project.
The project will feature actresses Shin Ye-eun and Won Jin-ah, both as the female leads of the movie. Shin Ye-eun is well known for her appearance in the K-drama ‘He is Psychometric,’ opposite GOT7’s Jinyoung, as well as the K-drama, ‘More Than Friends,’ opposite the ex-member of Wanna One, Ong Seong-wu. It is also reported that Shin Ye-eun is going to appear in a special role in the upcoming 2021 Disney+ K-drama, ‘Rookies,’ starring Kang Daniel.
'Secret' has two female leads
The movie ‘Secret’ will be the official remake of the 2007 Taiwanese movie ‘The Secret That Cannot Be Told.’ The movie is a fantasy romance story that begins when a transfer student who is a genius pianist meets a girl who plays mysterious music in an old practice room. According to a source from the movie, it was revealed that due to her immense popularity after the K-drama, ‘He is Psychometric’, Shin Ye-eun’s screentime in the movie has been greatly increased in its Korean adaptation.
The movie ‘Secret’ will also have Won Jin-ah as its second female lead. Won Jin-ah has appeared in many K-dramas since she debuted in 2015 but was seen in the popular JTBC drama, ‘She Would Never Know’ (also known as ‘Senior Don’t Put on Lipstick’) opposite SF9’s idol and actor Rowoon and the recently released Netflix horror-fantasy series 'Hellbound'.
Do Kyungsoo booked and busy
D.O has been busy ever since he finished his military service. Earlier it was announced that D.O was already filming for the movie, 'The Moon,' which is based on a true story, since June 2021 while he also simultaneously promoted his solo album ‘Empathy’ with the lead single ‘Rose’ that was released in July.
The filming team of ‘The Moon’ announced that filming of the movie had officially ended on October 12. Fans were extremely pleased to see D.O’s 'actor' persona in the photos that were teased from the movie as they trended ‘Astronaut Kyungsoo’ on Twitter in no time. In less than a month following the filming of ‘The Moon’, D.O in now filming for ‘Secret’, alongside Shin Ye-eun and Won Jin-ah, without taking a break. It seems like he'll make up for lost time pretty soon.
