The popular mini-web drama EXO NEXT DOOR co-produced by SM Entertainment and LINE‘s is to be made into a film! Certainly an answered prayer for EXO international fans.
The drama follows four EXO boys attempting to keep a low profile and moves in next door to Ji Yeon Hee, who is actually happens to be a childhood friend of Chanyeol but doesn’t recognize her.
With the popularity of these 16-episode mini-drama, having broke the record of a web drama with over 10 million views for only 12 episodes aired so far, the web drama will be cut and pieced into an official film. This was revealed by CJ Entertainment at the most recent 68th Annual Cannes Film Festival on May 13th in Southern France.
The overseas sales team stated that they had received non-stop requests for the program from overseas buyers due to its large scaled popularity and because EXO members were starring in it.
Though EXO Next Door will be prepped into a film edition, South Korea will see it screened in theaters and will instead be available through IPTV. Currently, the screening date nor theater locations for the film edition of EXO Next Door has not been announced.
