Filming for the movie has already begun
EXO’s D.O. (real name Doh Kyung-soo) has found his co-stars for his new film Secret. D.O. will be starring alongside Shin Ye Eun (More Than Friends) and Won Jin Ah (She Would Never Know). The actresses’ agencies, NPIO Entertainment and Yooborn Company have confirmed the news, and said that they are currently filming.
Secret (literal title) is a Korean adaptation of a 2007 Taiwanese movie by the same name. The original is set in 1999 and is about a piano prodigy who transfers into a famous music school where his father is a teacher. While he is given the school tour by his classmate, they come across an old piano building that his classmate says will be torn down on graduation day. When they approach the building, he hears a beautiful, yet mysterious melody, which leads him to the girl who is playing it. They start spending time together, and even falls in love. She tells him about the musical piece she was playing, called “Secret.”
D.O. will play the male lead whose name was Ye Xiang Lun in the original. Won Jin Ah will play Lu Xiao Yu, the girl playing the piano, and Shin Ye Eun will play Qingyi, Xiang Lun’s classmate who falls for him. However, her role is said to be different from the original.
The movie will be directed by Seo Yoo Min, known for films like Recalled, April Snow, You Call It Passion, and Happiness.
Secret is currently set to release sometime in 2022.
