Korean idol group Super Junior member Donghae has been cast in a new SBS TV series.
The show’s promoter J Story announced in a press release that Donghae is the latest singer to join the cast of the upcoming Monday and Tuesday drama tentatively titled “Dad, Your Daughter is Okay.”
Donghae will be playing a character named Choi Wook-gi who is a tough and earnest guy who joins CNBLUE member Minhyuk’s character in a band.
“I am nervous and excited since this will be my first time playing a role in a drama so I will work hard and hope to do my best,” Donghae was quoted as saying.
“Dad,” about a girl Eun Chae-ryong (played by Moon Chae-won) who makes sacrifices to help her family after her father’s accident, will premiere on November 22 after “Doctor Champ” finishes its run.
Donghae made his debut in the 13-member boy band Super Junior in 2005, releasing their first album “SuperJunior 05.”
He recently made a special appearance at a Girls’ Generation concert, taking the stage with member Jessica’s solo performance of the song “Barbie Girl.”
