EXO-K Chanyeol has been confirmed to be in the movie Jang Soo Shop (previously known as Last First Love).
The director was considering Chanyeol for the role, and it looks like he was able to convince SM Entertainment to let Chanyeol on-board!
Chanyeol will be playing the role of an innocent high school student/boyfriend of actress Han Ji Min’s character.
Jang Soo Shop will center around an elderly couple’s love story.
The film will feature an ensemble cast. So far, it has been confirmed that Park Geun Hyung, Yoon Yeo Jung, Han Ji Min, Jo Jin Woong, Hwang Woo Seul Hye, and Chanyeol will be participating in this movie.
The filming will begin in August.
We hope that Chanyeol does this role justice.
So far, netizens and even fans are weary of Chanyeol participating in this movie, mainly because they saw him in K.Will’s music video for You Don’t Know Love, and they felt his performance was cringe-worthy.
On the bright side of netizens’ criticism, they praised him for his kindness and positive attitude on variety shows… so I guess that’s a win for Chanyeol.
Anyways, we feel that if Chanyeol works hard, he will be able to perform his role successfully and that he’ll prove those naysayers wrong.
