EXO‘s D.O. (Do Kyung Soo) has been confirmed to take on the lead role in the Korean remake of the Taiwanese romance movie, Secret.
According to the production company behind the movie, Hive Media Corp., Do Kyung Soo will be joining the cast of Secret, which will be directed by Seo Yoo Min. Secret is a remake of the 2007 Taiwanese film of the same name, which starred Jay Chou and Gwei Lun Mei.
Secret is a fantasy-romance movie that tells the love story between a piano genius and a female study. The female lead was playing a mysterious song in an old, soon-to-be-demolished piano practice room when they first meet and destined events soon follow.
Do Kyung Soo will play the male lead role similar to Jay Chou’s role of Ye Xianglun. He has already solidified his presence as one of Korea’s next generation of actors through Swing Kids, Along with the Gods, and Brother. He is also already working on another new film, The Moon. Secret is scheduled to begin filming in the second half of 2021. His female lead role counterpart will be cast through auditions later on.
