Both broadcasting officials and Sungyeol’s label Woollim Entertainment have confirmed the idol’s appearance in the drama. An official from Woollim Entertainment stated, “Sungyeol is appearing in D-DAY. He will attempt for a new acting transformation through this project.”

Sungyeol was the lead actor alongside Kim Sae Ron and fellow member Woohyun in KBS 2TV drama High School Love On last year. It is revealed that he will take on a new challenge in this upcoming drama with transformed acting skills.
D-DAY’s plot revolves around a disaster-stricken city of Seoul, highlighting courageous rescue workers, emergency personnel, and doctors. Model-turned-actor Kim Young Kwang is already confirmed for the drama while Jeon So Min, Ha Seok Jin, Lee Kyung Young, and more are still in discussions.
