The anticipation of film industry towards doh kyungsoo is special. But it's not because of the curiousity from his title as a member from the popular group EXO. It's because of his all-around achievements. From starring in drama films up to animation films that reach from romance genre until human drama. He starred in the movie 'cart', sbs 'it's okay that's love' and also a few dramas that led to an increase in anticipation of him to show his rich expressions in various genre.
While filming the movie 'pure love' (director lee eunhee, production company jupiter film) that will be released in 24th February, he's also busy participating in various activities. However, in his spare time he challenged a new thing, the animation film 'underdog' (director oh seongyun, production company ohdolttogi animation), where he's starring as the main lead voice actor and is recording now. Underdog is a movie about the adventure of an abandoned dog, it's an animation film that has a deep korean tone. Although it will be released in summer next year, Underdog is produced by doing the voice recording in advance and based on the voice recording, the rest of the work will be completed after it. Doh kyungsoo decided to star in this experimental work without hesitation.
The film industry is interested in the reponse of the film 'pure love', where doh kyungsoo act as a main lead. The movie background is a first love story in 1990s. Prior to the movie release, a showcase is held on six cities and also a premiere, where all the seat on those events is all sold out, such reaction is not common.
'Pure love' production team said "looking at the response of the advance premiere, the influence from doh kyungsoo's fandom is hard to ignore" and adds "the audience is curious of the new side of doh kyungsoo, who's been steadily building his acting career"
As if to prove the anticipation from the film industry, doh kyungsoo is starring in a human drama genre movie titled 'brother' (director kwan sugyeong, production company choice cut) that has finished filming and is preparing to be released. In that film, we will meet him as the brother of actor jo jungseok.
