EXO’s Do Kyung Soo To Showcase Tap Dancing Skills In “Swing Kids”
Do Kyung Soo has jam-packed activities this year with a highly anticipated film, scheduled to be released along with EXO’s The Elyxion concert tours.
Do Kyung Soo (D.O.) recently wrapped up filming for anticipated 2018 film Swing Kids with rising actress Park Hye Soo (Introverted Boss).
Orchestrated by hitmaker director Kang Hyung Chul, the movie tells the story of a group of North Korean and Chinese people who were held captive during the Korean war in 1951. A US Military sergeant formed a tap-dance group “Swing Kids”, composed of prisoners.
Do Kyung Soo’s scene stealing appearance in last year’s highest grossing film, Along With The Gods provided a glimpse of his emotional depth as an actor. With his new tap-dancer persona, we expect his innate artistic ability and acting sensibility range to jive perfectly for a character that befits him well.

If you have seen PD Kang’s brilliance in films Sunny and Speedy Scandal, there’s no other way but to trust his upcoming venture. It might become another masterpiece as he is creative in fusing nostalgic tones, music and heartwarming lessons.
Do Kyung Soo‘s tap dance showcase will surely delight his followers as he adds another notable role. As a North Korean soldier, he gradually subdues his rebellious character through joining a tap-dance team in a prison camp setting. The idol-actor is praised for his commitment to the role by doing even the hard scenes without a double.
Director Kang expressed gratitude to all the production cast and crew for a job well done during the last four months of filming. “I knew that the film was a collaborative artwork, but I learned a lot through Swing Kids. I appreciated the staff and actors who worked hard when the work load increased. I will go on working hard in the post-production period”, he added.
Actress Park Hye Soo thanked the staff and her fellow actors for the experiences she gained while working with them.
Do Kyung Soo recently performed at the closing ceremony of 2018 Winter Olympics with fellow EXO members. The K-pop royalty group will cruise Asia for The Elyxion concert series.
Swing Kids will hit the big screen some time in the second half of 2018.
