EXO's D.O. And Kim So Hyun Discuss Their First Kiss

In a film about first love, that first kiss is an important moment. It's also the moment that EXO's D.O. is most eager to see on screen.

The 22-year-old singer and actor appeared at a press conference for his upcoming  film "Pure Love." The conference took place on January 4 at Seoul's Konkuk University. D.O., aka Doo Kyung Soo, spoke about the scene in which he and actress Kim So Hyun kiss under an umbrella.

"I am very curious as to how it will come out," said D.O. "I am also curious what the audience will think of this scene. It is an important scene. I think this scene really fits with the word first love."

Kim Soo Hyun, 15, agreed.

"It truly is a beautiful scene," said Kim. "I hope many people are looking forward to this scene as it shows how the two characters clicked."

It was not her first onscreen kiss. She had her first kiss with actor Yeo Jin Goo when they co-starred in the melodrama "Missing You." Her character fell asleep on his character's lips and then was shocked by the contact.

Although D.O. and Kim So Hyun are the primary couple in "Pure Love,"  the film also focuses on their friends. Their story is told through a 23-year-old letter delivered to a radio disc jockey while he is on the air. The letter is read during his live broadcast. The film's other stars are Yeon Jun Suk, Lee David, Joo Da Young, Park Yong Woo, Park Hae Jun and Kim Ji Ho. The film has a February release date.

"Pure Love" will serve as the second major film role for D.O. In 2014, he debuted as an actor in "Cart." D.O portrayed Choi Tae Young, a high school student whose mother was wrongfully dismissed from her job as a grocery store employee. He followed his role in "Cart" with his dramatic and compelling performance in the psychological drama, "It's Okay, That's Love." D.O received several awards for his portrayal of Han Kang Woo in the series. In 2016, he can also be seen in the film "Thinking of Older Brother."

Kim So Hyun played the dual roles of Lee Eun Bi and Go Eun Byul in the teen drama, "Who Are You: School 2015." The 15-year-old actress has an extensive film and television career. She debuted as an actress at age 7 but received widespread acclaim for playing a vengeful queen-in-training in the 2011 drama, "Moon Embracing the Sun." Her role in "Who Are You: School 2015" is significant as the first time she was the romantic interest and involved in a love triangle. She will appear in the film "The Last Princess" in the younger version of the role played by Son Ye Jin.
