BEIJING: K-pop singer Luhan admitted to nerves and pressure after taking on a role in the Chinese remake of the Korean film Miss Granny, according to Chinese media reports on Sunday (Nov 2).
“I haven’t really studied acting so I’ve have been constantly nervous, as well as a little excited about my role,” said Luhan, during a media conference for the film in Beijing. This was his first high-profile public appearance after he sued his management agency S.M. Entertainment to terminate his contract and leave his band EXO.
Miss Granny is a romantic comedy about a grandmother (Gui Yalei), who is miraculously made to look like her 20-year-old self (Yang Zishan) one day. Hilarity ensues when her grandson (Luhan) and a music producer (Chen Bolin) fall in love with her without knowing her true identity, and vie against each other, as well as against her elderly husband for her affection.
“Everything is new and exciting. Acting is enjoyable but it is even more enjoyable to act alongside my two ‘grannies’,” said Luhan.
“My character and I are very much alike. We are both young men who are passionate about music, who won’t look back, won’t give up and bravely go forward to realise their dream.”
Directed by Leste Chen, Miss Granny is scheduled for release in January next year.
