It is well-known that EXO’s Xiumin will be the lead star in the upcoming web series “Falling for Challenges.” Such news brought in speculations that he’s going to leave his group to concentrate more on his acting career, however, it doesn’t look that way. Kim So Eun will be starring opposite Xiumin and they are to begin filming this week. Read on.
In “Falling For Challenges” Xiumin will play the role of Na Do Jeon. He is a part-time clown who takes pleasure in making other people happy. Meanwhile, Kim So Eun will play Ban Ha Na, his classmate. She works in a food truck and aspires to have one of her own. Just like Na Do Jeon, she enjoys giving service to other people.
