Suho of K-pop group EXO will be making his acting comeback through the JTBC comedy-drama series Behind Your Touch. 

On Wednesday, July 27, JTBC shared still images of Suho’s character in the upcoming drama.

One photo showed him outside of a convenience store, while another featured him holding a cat. Another image also captured him staring into a distance. 

Behind Your Touch will follow Bong Ye Boon (portrayed by Han Ji Min), a veterinarian who has the supernatural ability to see the pasts of other people and animals. 

Han Ji Min will be joined by Lee Min Ki, who plays the ambitious detective Jang Yeol who plans to use Ye Boon’s special ability so he could be moved to the criminal investigation team in Seoul.

Suho will be portraying Kim Seon Woo, an outsider who moves to Ye Boon’s crime-free rural village Mujin. 

EXO also shared the character posters of Suho in the upcoming drama, teasing that the idol will act as the “mysterious part-timer Kim Seon Woo.” 

Suho on acting again

Behind Your Touch will serve as Suho’s first acting stint in almost five years, following the 2018 film Middle School Girl A and series Rich Man. 

As to what made him return to acting, Suho said that it’s because he’s a fan of director Kim Seok Yoon’s work and has always wanted to work with him. 

“The script was really fun to read, and I found the character of Sun Woo extremely appealing, so I thought to myself that I really wanted to try playing him no matter what,” he was quoted by Soompi

The idol-actor also teased fans they’ll enjoy how the drama mixes multiple genres such as thriller, comedy, and romance. “I think this drama will be an especially meaningful one for me, because I was able to work together with such wonderful people and create a great drama,” he said. 

Behind Your Touch will premiere on August 12. 


Meanwhile, aside from acting, Suho has also been busy with EXO’s activities. 

The group recently made their comeback with their seventh full-length album EXIST

EXO will also be airing the fourth season of their hit variety show Travel the World on a Ladder starting August 11.
