EXO-L’s, if not the concerts, the big screens will help you get up close to your idol! Chanyeol’s latest movie, The Box, is confirmed to release sometime this spring. Idols trying to make a career in acting is a common step in their life’s ladder of success.

Chanyeol is one of the EXO members who’s an all-rounder. He’s a singer, rapper, producer, songwriter, actor and model. He started his acting stint in 2014 with ‘Salut D’Amor’ and did a Chinese movie called ‘So, I Married an Anti-fan’ in 2016. However, ‘The Box’ will be his first-ever Korean movie in a leading role. The fandom can’t stop talking about the trailer and neither can we! If you’re still unsure about whether to watch The Box or not, we’re giving you four reasons why you definitely should!

The Cast
Two male leads. One played by EXO’s Chanyeol. The other, by the renowned actor Cho Dal Hwan. In addition, the movie is directed by Yang Jung-woong – the executive producer of the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Olympics in 2018. With such a great pairing, there definitely will be a much greater movie!

The Story
Ji Hoon, an aspiring singer, has a rather extraordinary dilemma – he can only sing when he wears a box on his head. But can this habit stay forever? Will he be able to break it and actually achieve his dreams? Enter music producer Min Soo, played by Cho Dal Hwan. A once successful producer, now trying his best to stay in business. When their worlds collide, will their journey and dreams take a new path or will they entangle themselves and tear each other down? Another great reason to watch this movie!

The Trailer
Of all the songs, we see Chanyeol cover Billie Eilish’s blockbuster hit ‘Bad Guy’ in the trailer released on March 2. The 55-second trailer takes the audience on a ride as it started with a silhouette of Chanyeol singing the verse and cuts to a clip of a weary Cho Dal Hwa. The moment the chorus appears, the video gives an adrenaline rush as lights switch on, Chanyeol moves with a guitar and a whole live band appears behind him on the stage.

A Special Gift
SM Entertainment recently confirmed that Chanyeol would be the fifth member to enlist in the military on March 29. But before taking up the duty, this film serves as a special gift of his to his fans globally.
