SHINee's Minho to star in KakaoTV’s upcoming original thriller series
Choi Min-ho, better known as Minho of boy band SHINee, will star in KakaoTV’s upcoming original thriller series “Goosebumps” (translated), his agency SM Entertainment said Wednesday.
It is Choi’s first role in the horror genre. He will play Hoon, a naïve character with lots of curiosity.
“Goosebumps,” set to be released later this year, is directed by Jung Bum-shik, who is known for popular horror films “Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum” (2018) and “Epitaph” (2007). “Goosebumps” is Jung’s first time directing a drama series.
Actor Choi Ji-woo and trot singer Jung Dong-won will also star in the series.
Choi debuted as a member of SHINee in 2008. He recently made a guest appearance in KakaoTV’s romance “Lovestruck in the City” (2020-21), and will also appear in Tving’s upcoming series “Yumi’s Cells.”
