Weki Meki’s Kim Do Yeon is taking on a new challenge on the big screen with the film “Eighteen Youth.”
In the movie “Eighteen Youth” (literal title), Kim Do Yeon will present a different charm from what she has shown before as a member of the group Weki Meki, garnering the public’s attention.
Playing a pure-hearted high school student, Kim Do Yeon portrays a character who may come off as sharp, but has a warm heart within. With her sharp gaze and expressionless face as her trademark, she is set to display a unique chemistry with Hee Joo (Jeon So Min). The extreme contrast between these two characters will add an enjoyable dimension to the story.
The film “Eighteen Youth” depicts a delightful story that unfolds through the meeting of Hee Joo, a teacher who receives both admiration from students due to her unique teaching methods and disapproval from her colleagues, and a burdened high school student’s innocent romance. This story captures the attention of students in a distinct educational setting and draws interest from fellow teachers, creating an intriguing narrative.
Kim Do Yeon began her acting career in 2018 and has only starred in dramas so far. Anticipation grows for what level of immersive performance Kim Do Yeon will bring to her first cinematic endeavor.
The film “Eighteen Youth” commenced filming on August 5th and is set to be released in 2024.
