SM Entertainment and LINE‘s co-produced and popular mini-web drama EXO Next Door will be made into a film!
The drama follows four EXO boys attempting to keep a low profile and moves in next door to Ji Yeon Hee, who is actually a childhood friend of Chanyeol but doesn’t recognize her.
The 16-episode mini-drama has proven to be very popular, recording over 10 million views with only 12 episodes aired so far, a record for a web drama.
Due to its popularity, 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.
