'Do You Know Taekwondo?' producer explains why he cast Niel out of all the TEEN TOP members
Kim Young Gyun, the director of KBS drama special 'Do You Know Taekwondo?' explained the reasoning behind casting TEEN TOP's Niel stating, "I believed he would do a good job."
The stars of the drama special attended a press conference on October 4th, where Kim Young Gyun revealed, "All of the TEEN TOP members auditioned for the part. They're all talented individuals, but Niel had the most energy."
'Do You Know Taekwondo?' follows an athlete who dreams of becoming an action star but ends up becoming a Taekwondo instructor at his alma mater. The story takes place as he teaches "troubled teens" and watches their stories unfold (watch the preview in the previous article here).
Niel plays the role of a student who is bullied by his peers and becomes the first student of the main character, as he wants to learn to protect himself.
He commented, "The competition among the TEEN TOP members was fierce. There were many members who wanted the part, especially L.Joe hyung."
He continued, "In the past, I played many roles in which I pushed around other people. But this time, I'm the one being bullied, so it was a nice change. It's been long time since I last acted, so I was nervous, and I felt unprepared, but I had a lot of help from the sunbae actors and the director so I recovered quickly."
'Do You Know Taekwondo?' will begin airing on October 7th!
