EXO’s Chanyeol To Be Park Shin Hye’s Brother In “Memories Of The Alhambra”
Park Chanyeol goes geeky as he joins highly-anticipated drama, Memories of the Alhambra!
After his record-breaking magazine cover deal, EXO’s Park Chanyeol confirmed his appearance on tvN’s weekend drama slated for November broadcast.
The rapper of EXO will challenge the role of a genius programmer who is trapped in his own world, and the brother of the heroine of the story played by Park Shin Hye.
Chanyeol’s character is sketched to be close to his sister. His recluse attitude is due to his wounded memories as a child so he only speaks with his sister.
Memories of the Alhambra tells the story of an investment company CEO who went to Granada Spain.
He stays at a cheap hostel run by a former guitarist. He gets caught up in a cryptic situation involving the hostel owner.
The drama was earlier touted as a gripping sci-fi story about alternate realities fused in a hyped reality game, but we should expect more plot details released as the production gears on.
This highly-anticipated project brings together the creative minds of writer Song Jae Jung, who brilliantly penned fantasy series Queen In Hyun’s Man, Nine Times Travel, and W: Two Worlds, and director Ahn Gil Ho, who directed Stranger, the Grand Prize television drama winner of 54th Baeksang Arts Awards.
This will be Chanyeol’s return to the small screen after his supporting role in last year’s Missing Nine.
In related news, it was earlier announced that EXO will be active in acting, unit promotions, and variety shows to minimize the gaps in its group activities.
True to that promise, Chanyeol ventures to an unprecedented success as he graced the cover of Chinese magazine TrendsHealth this month.
TrendsHealth announced that 20,000 copies of the magazine had already sold out in 45 seconds during the pre-sale. Chanyeol’s magazine cover marked a brand new record for the most copies sold for any Korean celebrity covered in a Chinese magazine!
Chanyeol will meet the fans for his new drama, Memories of the Alhambra in November.
