SHINee’s Onew Confirmed to Star as Male Lead in New Web Drama
It has been confirmed that SHINee’s Onew will be starring as the male lead in an upcoming web drama “Dating Was the Easiest” (tentative English title).
On March 9, a representative of the web drama’s production company revealed, “SHINee’s Onew has been confirmed to play the role of the male lead in the web drama ‘Dating Was the Easiest.’”
The production team of this web drama went through two separate rounds of open auditions to decide on the cast. More than 2,000 people took part in the auditions, and after a total of three weeks of reviewing, the number was narrowed down to 120 people. In the end, Onew beat out all of the other participants and was chosen as the final actor after proving his determination and preparation to the producers.
The female lead has yet to be decided as of now, as there is much competition for the role. It is said that the web drama is based on a very popular webtoon of the same name and the storyline focuses on the complexities of dating and relationships between a man and a woman.
