161025 EXO’s D.O. casted for thriller ‘Room Number 7′

EXO member D.O. (birth name Do Kyungsoo) has been confirmed to appear in Room Number 7 (directed by Lee Yongseung, produced by Myung Films) as his fifth film.

An official for the revenge movie has recently told Sports Chosun that, “D.O., the actor-idol who has transitioned into film, is confirmed for Room Number 7.”

One official has hinted that, “When D.O. joined, it drew quite the attention for Room Number 7, the new project by the longstanding Myung Films. D.O. has a special connection with Myung Films through his screen debut in Cart (directed by Bu Jiyoung), and it was through that connection that this casting happened. Although Room Number 7 will be low-budget, with an investment of one billion won [~880k USD], he confirmed trusting Myung Films and director Lee Yongseung’s strong plot.”

Room Number 7 is a mystery thriller following the discovery of a corpse in a rundown Apgujeong DVD cafe. D.O. will play the employee who discovers the corpse in room number seven, with Shin Hakyoon confirmed to play the owner of the DVD cafe. Chungmuro has its eyes on the meeting of ‘acting beast’ D.O. and ‘acting god’ Shin Hakyoon. 

Room Number 7 will be director Lee Yongseung’s second film, after his successful debut with ‘10 Minutes’ (2014) at the 18th Busan International Film Festival. Filming will start in January next year, after casting is concluded.
