Much to the delight of Shawols and MVPs everywhere, on March 9th it was announced that SHINee’s leader, Onew, will be starring as the male lead in a new web drama!
The drama, entitled “Dating was the Easiest,” is set to begin airing at the end of April. This is truly exciting news for fans, as this will be the biggest role that Onew has tackled to date. He has appeared here and there in some dramas and sitcoms, but mostly with small roles. I for one have been anxious to see him flex his acting chops a bit more, and it appears that I and many others are about to see our wish come true.
This drama is based off of a very popular Daum webtoon, which you can check out here. It tells the story of a tiger god, and his love for a high school girl named Hari. The toon centers around this romantic relationship, and Onew’s character, Ho Won, is said to be very devoted to his love. There is a lot of speculation as to what this role will entail for the SHINee leader, but we will have to wait and see what new sides of himself he will reveal to us.
Onew was chosen out of many people that auditioned, in fact more than 2,000 applied. According to staff, he showed up to auditions very well prepared, and they were very impressed with his interpretation. Several of the smaller roles have already been cast, but the female lead spot has yet to be filled. “Dating was the Easiest” is produced by Beetm and will air through Beetm TV. More specifics on this drama are soon to come, so stay tuned.
