EXO’s SUHO, Kim Hwan Hee, Jung Da Bin, Lee Jong Hyuk and director Lee Kyung Seob met with members of the press at the premiere of Student A at Lotte Cinema in Seoul on Monday.
The coming-of-age film, which was adapted from a webcomic, talks about an obsessed gamer girl with a low self-esteem, Mi Rae (played by Hawn Hee), who grows up and heals her old wounds with the help of Jae Hee (played by Suho). The story also sheds light on several social topics such as bullying and gaming addiction, to share a few.
Despite the 11-year age gap between the K-Pop member and the child actress, both stars had no “generation gap” or “communication problems. In fact, the EXO member said filming was a lot more fun than expected and “easier” because of his playful and “immature” personality.
Jong Hyuk, who plays a teacher in the film, also shared that working on Student A exposed him to the troubles and worries faced by teenagers today. With that newfound insight, the actor shared that he has created a bucket list which he hopes to achieve with his two sons, Lee Joon-soo and Lee Tak-soo.
