EXO’s D.O. (Do Kyungsoo) stars in two of the most anticipated Korean movies of 2016, “Pure Love” and “Hyung.”
The retro coming-of-age film pairs the 22-year-old acting idol with Kim So Hyun, the 16-year-old fresh-faced star of the suspenseful teen drama, “Who Are You: School 2015.”
D.O. is Beom Sil, a pure-hearted teen who is dedicated in his pursuit of Soo Ok, a girl with a fractured heart.
The story unfolds when an old letter is delivered to a radio broadcast, illustrating the evolution of the innocent relationship.
Romance will bloom when “Pure Love” hits theaters on February 24, 2016.
D.O. also stars in the recently wrapped movie, “Hyung” or “Older Brother.” He stars as Doo Young, an emerging judo competitor who assists in obtaining parole for his con-man brother, Doo Sik, portrayed by Jo Jung Suk (Oh My Ghost).
Doo Young is challenged by the appearance of his brother, who decides to live with him after a 15-year absence.
Hallyu darling Park Shin Hye rounds out the main cast as Lee Soo Hyun, the judo instructor who is supportive of Doo Young and willing to face conflicts brought out by Doo Sik.
“Hyung” completed filming on December 31, 2015 and has yet to announce a release date.
Lee Min Ho follows the success of his 2015 breakout film role in “Gangnam 1970” or “Gangnam Blues,” with his starring role as Yi San in “Bounty Hunters.”
Centered on the exploits of bounty hunters who operate throughout Asia, the Chinese-Korean blockbuster features a powerhouse cast including Wallace Chung (The Continent), Tiffany Tang (East Meets West), and Karena Ng (Ip Man 3).
Kim Soo Hyun returns to film as Jae Tae Young, a fixer in the seedy underworld of organized crime, in “Real.”
“Real” marks his first major movie role since the 2013 espionage flick, “Secretly Greatly.” His film career is punctuated by the mass appeal of dramas like “Dream High,” “You Who Came from the Star,” and “Producer.”
Han Ji Eun (The Royal Tailor) is his leading lady and former f(x) member Sulli appears in the supporting role of Song Yoo Hwa.
“Real” is slated to begin filming, this month, and has yet to announce a release date.
