Many K-pop singers have made forays into acting and successfully turned themselves into triple threats. Bae Suzy, Yoona and IU are just three who spring to mind. And in the next few months, five more K-pop idols are set to make highly anticipated acting debuts.

So who are they and what will they be starring in?

Blackpink’s Jisoo will no doubt set the internet on fire this winter when she debuts in the K-drama Snowdrop, scheduled for release on December 18. She tackles the role of Eun Young-cho alongside Netflix’s D.P. star Jung Hae-in who plays graduate student Im Soo-ho. The two university students meet and fall in love in South Korea in 1987. The drama is set against the backdrop of the country’s Democratic Movement, according to HITC.

Not content with simply being an excellent rapper, painter and style icon, Mino is about to add acting to his resume thanks to upcoming Netflix crime drama Seoul Vibe – his first ever appearance on the big screen.

The plot revolves around the Samgyedong Supreme Team – a group of talented drivers who get caught up in a slush fund robbery during the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Other main cast members include Reply 1988 and Private Lives’ Go Kyung-pyo, Prison Playbook’s Lee Kyu-hyung, Extracurricular’s Park Ju-hyun, and former Wanna One member Ong Seong-wu.

With its thrilling Fast and Furious-like scenes on the streets of Seoul, the movie has already been described as an action blockbuster and is expected to be released as early as spring 2022.

Jaehyun from NCT in Dear.M and Bungee Jumping of Their Own

Koreaboo reports that even the teaser trailer for Dear.M has got fans excited to see more of Jaehyun’s acting skills. The upcoming series tells the story of a group of students at Seoyeon University whose lives are turned upside down by a mysterious person known only as “M”.

The NCT idol plays Cha Min-ho, a talented computer engineering student who has chemistry with his fellow student Ma Joo-ah, played by Park Hye-soo. However, accusations of bullying against Park earlier this year led to the show being delayed from its original air date of February.

Hopefully fans won’t have to wait as long for the star’s appearance in the series Bungee Jumping of Their Own, a remake of a 2001 film. Jaehyun will play the part of Im Hyun-bin, a student who behaves like his teacher’s deceased girlfriend who he cannot forget, according to Soompi.

Daniel Kang in Rookies

K-pop star Daniel Kang is slated to make his small screen debut in Disney+’s new original series, Rookies.

In the drama, Kang plays Wi Seung-hyun, a police academy student who plans to follow in his father’s footsteps but gets dramatically sidelined when he meets troublemaker Go Eun-kang. Chae Soo-bin, best known for Love in the Moonlight, plays Go. Disney+ launched its service in South Korea on November 12 and the series is set to air sometime in the first half of 2022.

The series’ plot is what caught Kang’s attention when auditioning, according to Korea Times. It is about the struggles of young adults attempting to make daring decisions at a conservative university.

“What attracted me was the fact that the drama focuses on young people,” he said. “It was great to see how the characters grow up as they go through ups and downs.”

iKON’s Junhoe in Even If I Die, One More Time

Members of K-pop boy group iKON have been branching out with other projects a lot in recent months, both as a group and individually. Now one of its members, Junhoe, is making his acting debut with upcoming film Even If I Die, One More Time.

According to SportsKeeda, the film is about a 40-year-old stuntman, Jeon Woo-seok, who wants to become an actor. However, due to an unexpected incident, he travels back in time to his high school years and gets the opportunity to change his life.

Junhoe has been cast in the role of Bong-gyun, Jeon’s high school best friend who is cool and charming but something of a playboy. Jeon will be played by award-winning actor Jo Byeong-gyu (Arthdal Chronicles, Sky Castle, Hot Stove League). Junhoe’s fans definitely expect him to bring some sparkle to the film. Even If I Die began filming in October and will premiere sometime in late 2022.
