NCT’s Doyoung To Make Acting Debut As Lead Of New Fantasy Drama
NCT’s Doyoung will be making his highly-anticipated acting debut!
On November 2, SPOTV News reported that Doyoung would be making his acting debut as the male lead in “Sanbok Sanbok Stalker” (literal title).
Following reports, a source from SM Entertainment confirmed, “Doyoung will be taking on his first acting role as Son Ji Woo in the time and space transcending fantasy drama ‘Midnight Café’ (literal title) season three ‘Sanbok Sanbok Stalker,’ which will portray the growth and therapeutic story of an 18-year-old high school student who can see the future.”
“Sanbok Sanbok Stalker” is the third season of MBC’s “Midnight Café,” which aired earlier this year in February. “Midnight Café” is about the story that unfolds in a café located on a mountainside road in Busan that doesn’t even appear on a map. Seasons two and three of “Midnight Café” will be produced simultaneously and premiere in the first half of next year.
Doyoung will play Son Ji Woo, a perfect high school student from his appearance to his personality. He’s a character who matures from experiencing a mix of chaotic feelings from having a mother who’s losing her memories and heart-fluttering excitement from developing feelings for a female friend.
This will be Doyoung’s first attempt at acting. In addition to his various activities as a member of NCT, Doyoung appeared on numerous variety programs and promoted as the MC for SBS’s “Inkigayo.”
Following NCT’s Jaemin and Jaehyun, Doyoung will be the third member to make his acting debut. Recently, Jaemin won Best Korean Actor at the 2020 Seoul Webfest Awards for his performance in the web drama “Way to Dislike You,” and Jaehyun is also preparing to making his acting debut with the upcoming KBS drama “Dear.M.”
NCT made their comeback with “RESONANCE Pt. 1” last month.
