Do Kyungsoo is returning to the silver screen as the lead in the upcoming movie “Swing Kids” (name subject to change).
SM Entertainment confirmed Kyungsoo’s role earlier today and we couldn’t be more excited for him.
The movie will be directed by Kang Hyung Chul, who is an acclaimed director known for movies such as “Tazza: The Hidden Card”, “Sunny”, and “Scandal Makers”.
The synopsis for the film is a bit weird, but we have a feeling it’s all going to work out.
D.O’s character, Ro Ki Soo, is a North Korean soldier imprisoned in a concentration camp. While everything is going to hell around him, he finds peace and comfort in his new love for tap dancing.
Yeah, it’s… a strange storyline, but it could definitely be a heartwarming one, especially with squishy D.O playing the lead role.
The filming for the movie is set to take place in September.
Everyone’s very supportive of Kyungsoo’s casting.
