EXO‘s D.O. recently posed for a photoshoot in Magazine M! The new issue of the magazine shows D.O. with his “Room Number 7” co-star, Shin Ha Kyun.
The upcoming film tells the story of Tae Jung (Do Kyungsoo), a college student that is terribly down on his luck. He has taken a break from school in order to focus on his part-time job at a rundown and failing DVD room. He wants to quit due to mistreatment, but he refuses to do so since his boss owes him 2 million (roughly 1,800 dollars) won in unpaid salary.
With an unpaid, disconnected phone, limited funds, and sad living arrangements, the character Tae Jung becomes a hardened young man with a tough attitude. While at his part-time job, a VIP customer approaches him and says he will take care of his debt if he hides their drugs. He then starts to become suspicious of the mysterious room number seven at work, which always remains locked. After a corpse is eventually found in the room, the mystery-thriller goes on a fast-paced journey that follows the character as he tries to get out of trouble.
For the interview with Magazine M, D.O. said that he can still empathize with the character’s frustration, despite not ever facing the exact same problems. He stated that he also has a similar personality as Tae Jung in the fact that he likes to observe and keep things to himself. He stated, “When I acted out Tae Jung, I imagined his past and thought about how difficult [his life] must’ve been… I hope that as I gain more experience [in acting], I will be able to better express my change and emotions.”
“Room Number 7” hits theaters on November 15th KST. You can check out some of the previously released stills from the film by clicking here.
