SHINee’s Minho will take on his first acting role in KBS’ special drama “Pianist.”
The new actor will play the role of Oh Ji Ro, a boy who never had the chance to pursue music as a child. Oh Ji Ro works at a piano factory and his path crosses Yoon In Sa (Han Ji Hye) who has given up her dream of becoming an elementary school music teacher. The two share their dreams and passion for the piano.
Minho, who has just arrived back from Taiwan, began filming on November 9th. The special drama “Pianist” is one episode and will air on November 20th.

The acting opportunity is ideal for Minho as a student at Konkuk University majoring in film.
He recently expressed his desire to act in KBS program “Oh! My School” where he stated “Next year I definitely want to act. I definitely want to try playing a role suitable for a singer and an action role.” Minho acknowledges he may lack in acting ability but remains optimistic: “After I practice a bit more I’ll challenge to take on a character that suits me.”
