EXO’s D.O. Has Finished Filming For 3 Upcoming Acting Projects; Here Are The 11 Characters He’s Played Before

Actor D.O. is coming back and we’ve never been more ready.

EXO‘s D.O. (also known as Kyungsoo) is well known for having amazing vocals and charismatic performances, but he’s also famous for his incredible talent as an actor. As someone who hasn’t been afraid to try a plethora of roles and does all he needs to get into character, including executing his own stunts and shaving his head for a role, it’s clear why D.O.’s loved as an idol and an actor. Having just wrapped up filming for three acting projects, with all three roles being as diverse as can be, we’re here to recount the 11 characters he’s played since his acting debut in 2014.

1. Cart

D.O. debuted as an actor in the movie Cart as Choi Tae Young, perfectly portraying the emotions of a poor high school boy with a strained relationship with his mother.

2. It’s Okay, That’s Love

Kyungsoo’s role as Han Kang Woo in It’s Okay, That’s Love broke everyone’s heart, and the drama is so well-loved that one of its most famous scenes has garnered 4.5 million views on TikTok eight years later. Also filmed in 2014, it’s hard to believe that he’s a rookie actor when every detail of his character’s actions is so well-executed.

After two high school student roles, D.O. switched things up by taking on the role of a psychopath in the drama Hello Monster. Even though it’s just acting, D.O.’s character sends chills down our backs.
