From slaying with his stylish outfits in real life, EXO’s Sehun becomes a rookie fashion designer in the upcoming SBS drama Now, We Are Breaking Up (literal title).
He joins the show’s star-studded lineup alongside Girl’s Day Yura. Both will play supporting roles in the new series as confirmed by their respective agencies, SM Entertainment and Awesome ENT.
Now, We Are Breaking Up stars Song Hye-kyo (Descendants of the Sun) and Jang Ki-yong (My Mister), with Choi Hee-seo (Anarchist from Colony) and Kim Joo-hun (Dr. Romantic 2). The drama that revolves around “emotional love and breakups” is written by Je In and directed by Lee Gil-bok.
Filming starts in April.
The 26-year-old idol will be the rookie designer at a fashion label who will be working alongside Song Hye-kyo and Choi Hee-seo’s characters.
In real life, Sehun, real name Oh Sehun, graced a lot of fashion shows himself in the past, including for Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Ermenegildo Zegna and Cartier. He was also recently announced as one of the faces of global fashion brand Dior Men last October 2020. Even British fashion magazine Vogue has named him one of the best-dressed personalities in attendance in Louis Vuitton’s shows.
Sehun is currently a mainstay in Netflix’s detective series Busted! since 2018. His last acting stint was in Dokgo: Rewind, also in 2018.
Now, We Are Breaking Up will air in the second half of 2021.
