Some artists like South Korean singer Jaehyun are born multi-talented and know how to make the best of the right opportunities. The NCT singer will be venturing into acting with web drama 'Dear.M' created by the producers of the much-loved web drama series, ‘Love Playlist’ on KBS. As per the entertainment website Koreaboo, he is reported to have been cast as the main lead alongside actors of season four of ‘Love Playlist’, Bae Hyun-sung and Kim Sae-ron among others. The site further reported that ‘Dear.M’ will be like a spinoff rather than a continuation of the original ‘Love Playlist.’

Jaehyun will be playing the role of Cha Minho, a second-year computer-engineering student and shows talent in developing novel apps. The site further reported that KBS 2TV's new drama 'Dear.M', which has built a lineup of young actors, is aiming for the first broadcast in the first half of 2021. A synopsis of the show reads: “Dear.M” will tell the story of the campus-wide search for the mysterious “M,” an individual who is mentioned in an anonymous post on a Seoyeon University online community. The realistic romance drama will follow the changing relationships and budding romances between various characters in the wake of all the buzz about “M.” Park Hye-soo will star as Ma Joo-ah, a second-year business administration major who has never had a boyfriend and is constantly meddling in others’ affairs due to her inquisitive nature. The two sophomores are childhood friends who have been BFFs for the past 12 years.
