Slowly but surely, EXO's Do Kyung Soo is making a name in the entertainment industry as one idol-actor worth looking out for.
Do Kyung Soo, more popularly known as D.O., the vocalist of popular idol group EXO, surprised the audience and critics with his impressive performance in the SBS drama "It's Okay, It's Love," rising anticipation for his big-screen debut in the film "Cart."
In an interview with news portal X Sports News, D.O. discussed the film, saying, "I was very nervous because for my debut, I would already be acting with such big seniors in the industry. Because I am inexperienced, there was a lot that I learned from them, and I was able to complete my role successfully."
According to reports, Do Kyung Soo filmed for "Cart" before making his way to "It's Okay, It's Love," making the movie his first official project as an actor.
His character Tae Young is the son of Sun Hee (Yeom Jung Ah), a grocery store worker will be fired from her job, and this event will be a turning point in her strained relationship with Tae Young.
On actress Yeom Jung Ah, he said, "Senior Yeon Jung Ah was very helpful, and on set, she acted like a real mother to me, making my experience comfortable and unforgettable."
In a separate interview, "Cart" director Boo Ji Young talked about his acting, saying, "There are many idols who act, but we were looking for someone different. Do Kyung Soo doesn't have the experience, but he's gave us something to look forward to, and he follows direction well."
"Cart" has been gaining international attention with its invitation to some of the most acclaimed film festivals in the world, the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF), and the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF).
Meanwhile, "Cart" is scheduled to premiere in Korea on November.
