Minho from boy band SHINee [Zoom Agency]
Minho, a member of a popular boy band SHINee, will make his acting debut through
"KBS Drama Special," a 24-part single-episode omnibus series showing on the major public network.
According to a press release distributed by PR agency Zoom on Tuesday, Minho will appear as Oh Je-ro, a man in his twenties who is gifted in music, in the show's final episode titled "Pianist" set to go on air November 20.
In the story, Je-ro is a young man who despite his musical talent, was unable to hone his skill due to financial reasons and has been forced to work in a piano factory in place of his sick father for years.
Then one day, Je-ro falls in love with music teacher Yoon In-sa, to be played by actress Han Ji-hye.
“It’s my first time acting so I’m very excited, happy and hopeful,” Minho was quoted as saying while filming the drama for the first time yesterday.
Minho, 19, debuted as a member of five-member boy band SHINee in 2008. He and his fellow bandmates Key, Jonghyun, Taemin and Onew have produced many hits songs since then including “Replay,” “Ring Ding Dong” and “LUCIFER.”
