Um, should I be worried that a member of the latest and greatest K-boyband EXO is making a cameo appearance in my beloved Prime Minister and I? Will so-called EXOtics show up and start waving their brand of crazy around the drama. I sure hope not, and the chances are slim anything will come of it since it’s just a quickie guest starring role. The leader of EXO-K (the Korean sub-unit) Suho (aka Kim Joon Myung) will be dropping by PM playing one of Woo Ri’s band mates and also the object of Na Ra’s crush. Putting aside Na Ra being way too young to be crushing on this particular oppa, I think the story line would be amusing since Na Ra tends to like pretty shiny things. Remember also that her favorite star is idol Ruri. This will be Suho’s first acting role and I’m not all that concerned he’s going to suck since it’s likely an inconsequential interlude that will be played for laughs. This is unlike Infinite‘s L playing the younger So Ji Sub in The Master’s Sun and sucking so hard I was watching his “acting” with my jaws wide open wondering if he was doing a parody of bad acting. L’s role in TMS was pivotal to forming the personality of the male lead so having a bad idol actor mucking it up is a pretty critical drawback. Here Suho will likely be asked to look cute and that’s fine with me. EXO is of course an SM group along with SNSD so it’s no surprise to see the agency stick one of its up and coming idol faces in Yoona‘s drama. My only experience with Suho was accidentally watching my first EXO video late last year and laughing my ass off. The video is for the song “Wolf” and for those who haven’t seen it, I’ll embed it below and y’all can get some exposure to Suho before he swings by tomorrow on PM. Truth be told, I can’t tell you which guy is Suho in the video though he looks cute enough in the picture above and in the first stills of his cameo in PM below.
