Six Reasons EXO's D.O. Is Korea's Rising Acting Idol

D.O. captured the attention of audiences with his cameo role.

While many K-pop stars attempt to effectively break into the market, few succeed at demonstrating the ability to capture the attention of audiences beyond their existing fan base.

D.O. continues to generate buzz with his on-screen performances, even when he is placed against a cast of seasoned actors. His recently provided a noteworthy cameo in the KBS2 drama "I Remember You," as Jun Young, a coldblooded sociopath. While it was only a two-episode stint, his headline-worthy appearance continues to be one of the most talked about K-Drama moments of June 2015.

His next highly anticipated project is "Pure Love," a romantic drama which teen actress Kim So Hyun. "Pure Love" will focus on the trajectory of the lead couple"s relationship, as told through a series of letters that are read on a radio station. While D.O. has yet to portray a leading man, the role could potentially elevate him beyond cameos and supporting characters.

On a March 2015 episode of "Entertainment Weekly," D.O. received the news that he was named as the top actor out of 40 idols in 2014.

D.O. demonstrated excellent comedic timing in "EXO Next Door." The strength of his acting was one of the primary reasons to watch the web series.

Korea and China’s First Joint Idol Audition Show “Super Idol” Announced, Featuring BEAST, Kim Jong Kook, and More

On April 21, MBC Music and 60 other related domestic and international organizations gathered at Seoul Westin Chosun Hotel for the opening ceremony of the Super Idol project.

Super Idol is the first-ever joint project between Korea and China, produced by MBC Music and Chinese media TV ZONE, in which they train future idols who will debut in Korea.

According to local media reports, this upcoming show is considered top-quality because Chinas representative broadcasting station and media will sponsor the program, and K-Note, a music academy led by songwriter Kim Hyung Suk, will be in charge of training the participants of the show.

Moreover, BEAST will write and sing the theme song of Super Idol themselves, along with Kim Jong Kook and The One appearing as judges on the show.

Even though the event in Westin Chosun Hotel was just the opening ceremony and not the official press conference for the show, 20 Chinese portal sites and organizations gathered for Super Idol and showed great interest in it.

The representative of Anhui TV stated, Im anticipating this joint project of Anhui TV and MBC Plus Media. We will work hard so it can become the best program.

MBC Plus Medias representative also stated, Super Idol will be a very fun music program, first picking 30 contestants out of the many and then five people in the final stage. Not only will Anhui TV and MBC Music film and air the participants training period, but we will also support the five final contestants in the end so that they are deemed true superstars in China and Korea.

The representative of the affiliated Chinese media also said, Super Idol will be different from other audition programs that only show contestants becoming stars overnight; we will capture the trainees passion, hard work, and sweat as they make it through everything. We will provide both fun and heartwarming moments to the audience as we show the trainees progress

Songwriter Kim Hyung Suk, who will be in charge of training 30 Korean and Chinese contestants to grow as superstars, said: I made connections with China in 2010 for the first time as a producer and thats when I saw great potential in Chinese idols. K-pop is spreading beyond Asia and is going global. The process of training and educating idol groups play a big part in that influence. We are trying to combine the two countries advantages through this program. Now we have everything ready, from talented kids and the best mentors to the most influential broadcasting station.

Meanwhile, Super Idol will have their press conference in July and air on the Chinese broadcasting station Anhui TV and Koreas MBC Music, MBC Every1, and MBC QueeN.
