D.O. (EXO)

So far, the audiences have been very strict with idols who act because most of them have a “bad” performance. However, D.O. (EXO) is one of the few “acting idols” supported by audiences because of the impressive acting. Since beginning acting, D.O. has challenged himself with many different types of roles.

Appearing with short screen time but D.O. has shown a very perfect role.

In particular, the villain role is said to be very suitable for him. Having played the role of a dangerous murderer in I Remember You (2015), D.O always makes the audience shudder when showing his scary looks and evil smile excellently. However, since he was only a guest appearance with a very short time in the film, it was expected that in the future, he would consider playing a more evil role.


With a tall and strong appearance, a masculine face and sharp eyes, T.O.P has always been considered a very good idol to play the villain of a movie. This was proved when T.O.P participated in Iris – South Korea’s biggest drama in 2009.

He played as Vick – a cold-blooded assassin with a dark conspiracy. Excellently getting into the evil character, T.O.P is always considered the actor who was “born for villain roles”.
