With parts in the online drama “Again, Fly” and KBS 2TV’s “Find Her,” Hyungwon was engaged in the acting world. He is now continuing such efforts.
With his group activities this year, Hyungwon has maintained his popularity. In particular, he discussed themes on the August 12th-released YouTube channel “I have nothing to wear” (7th). The video received more than 8.61 million views, demonstrating Hyungwon’s popular appeal.
In August 2019, Xiumin appeared in the army musical Return: The Promise of That Day with Yoon Ji Sung and SHINee member Onew.
Xiumin made his solo debut with EXO in 2012, but since then, he has participated in various interesting solo endeavors without releasing an official solo record. This includes the song “You” from his SM Station project and several more original soundtracks to K-dramas over the years, such as Mr. Queen in 2020 and Falling For Challenge in 2015. –WhatALife!/Brix
