SHINee’s Onew Is Strong Candidate for New Comedy Sitcom


SHINee‘s Onew is in strong consideration of joining the cast of a new JTBC comedy program.

On May 23, a JTBC rep spoke with OSEN and said, “Onew is a strong candidate for being part of a new comedy program called ‘Welcome To Noyal Villa,’ (working title) which is being produced around Kim Byung Man.”

“Welcome To Noyal Villa” will be about the stories of people who live in a royal villa portrayed in a comic, sitcom-like way. An audience of 30 people will be invited every week and the filming will occur in a theater.

According to this particular rep, Onew received offers from the staff team and SM reps commented, “We did receive the offers but nothing has been decided yet.”

“Welcome To Noyal Villa” will be directed by Kim Seok Yoon PD, who also worked on “I Live In Cheongdamdong.” The first episode is expected to air in the first week of July.
