The time has finally come for NCT's Jaehyun to make his acting debut and it seems like his hard work will soon pay off. The K-pop idol made big news when he was announced to be the lead actor in the KBS K-drama ‘Dear.M’ (Dear M) which was slated to release in 2021. Just as the cast was done filming for the show, the female lead of 'Dear M', actress Park Hye-soo, was embroiled in a school bullying rumor. The scandal blew up and the release of the NCT Jaehyun-starrer K-drama was eventually halted.

Excited fans, who had already taken to the teasers, hoped for a quick resolution of the scandal but it looked like the show was boxed as the actress is yet to be proven innocent. Following this, Jaehyun bagged another K-drama role in the remake of the 2001 film ‘Bungee Jumping of Their Own’ but the maker of the original work backed out and the project had to be scrapped, and all hopes of fans to see the NCT member as an actor shattered. Now as Jaehyun is touring with his boy group NCT 127 in Japan, the show 'Dear M' has finally hit the screens internationally for fans who had been eagerly waiting for the show.
