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 (2nd Nov).
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.
At the press conference for “Miss Granny” in Beijing, he said:
I haven’t really studied acting so I’ve have been constantly nervous, as well as a little excited about my role. Everything is new and exciting. Acting is enjoyable but it is even more enjoyable to act alongside my two “grannies”. 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.
“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.
Following the press conference, Luhan also wrote on his Weibo:
Today is the first movie of my life! During this time, I really appreciate Gua Ah-lei teacher, son Shan sister, brother Bolin, director Leste Chen, all predecessors and crew for all staff for their help and their encouragement! I learned a lot! I will continue to work hard! I am honoured to have been able to make a movie with everyone! ^^ hope to have the opportunity to also work together in future!
Directed by Leste Chen, Miss Granny is scheduled for release in January next year. Who’s excited to watch it?
We are! 😀
