EXO Members Praise D.O.’s Acting And React To His Kiss Scenes In “100 Days My Prince”
The members of EXO recently talked about D.O.’s activities as an actor at the press conference for their fifth studio album “Don’t Mess Up My Tempo.”
During the event, D.O. remarked, “First, [the show] has ended, but I can’t put into words how great the result was, so I really want to say thank you. I want to thank viewers who enjoyed the drama.”
He continued, “Since I’m constantly working in parallel with other projects, it’d be a lie to say it’s not tiring, but I’m just trying my best and working hard. However, [the drama] came out well until the end, so I’m really happy.”
In response to being called “the next Kim Soo Hyun,” D.O. said, “It’s an unbelievable thing for me… That’s not it. I think it’s an honor to even join that line. I worked really hard, but I’m truly grateful for your kind words. I’ll work even harder in the future and display a good image of myself. Please look forward to it. Thank you.”
Xiumin then revealed that he was a fan of “100 Days My Prince” and remarked, “In the beginning, looking at Kyungsoo [D.O.’s real name] being so uncomfortable made me uncomfortable. He was so good at acting that I wanted to give him a noogie on the head. The drama was also really fun. I would watch the live broadcast [of the episodes] sometimes, and if I couldn’t due to time restraints, I’d stay up all night watching it. [D.O.] is one of the few people that I think is in the list of top five actors.”
The members then discussed D.O.’s kiss scenes.
Chen commented, “I watched Kyungsoo’s kiss scene vividly on TV, but I was surprised. It was as if I became a fan. To be honest, it was the first time I saw Kyungsoo kissing [someone].” The members then jokingly teased, “That’s strange that you’ve even seen it,” and “It’s a little strange that you even saw it twice.”
Embarrassed, he continued, “Just like the fans, we were surprised too. I wanted to say that. My ears are getting red.”
D.O. added his own comments about his kiss scene as he said, “I didn’t have a lot of NG [not good] scenes. The director was the same. We did shoot multiple takes to create a lovely scene.” The members once again began teasing their fellow member as they remarked, “There were no NGs, but you seemed to [film the scenes] for a long time. By what we saw.” D.O. wasn’t fazed as he quietly replied, “Really? I worked hard. I’m glad that it came out prettily as I put in a lot of effort.”
EXO’s upcoming album will be released on November 2 at 6 p.m. KST. Check out the group’s latest teaser here!
