VIXX's maknae (youngest member) Hyuk is set to make his film acting debut in Seize It to Live.

On June 10, it was announced that Hyuk will be appearing alongside Kim Jung Tae in the new film. Kim Jung Tae has appeared in an array of television dramas, movies, and variety shows including Miracle in Cell No. 7 and Superman Returns. In Seize It to Live Kim Jung Tae plays a detective named Jung Taek. Hyuk is cast to play Won Tae, another detective.

In order to bring out Won Tae's fresh and friendly character, makers of the film wanted to find an idol member with no experience in acting for drama and films but have an interest in acting. On casting Hyuk specifically, a representative of the film said, "Hyuk is continuing to take acting lessons and has a strong passion for acting. He fits the image we wanted," according to My Daily.

Although this is Hyuk's acting debut, the young idol is no stranger to filming. He has previously appeared on SBS's The Law of the Jungle in Brazil and MBC Every1's Hitmaker.

Seize It to Live aims to be a new kind of action-comedy film, defined as nonstop and stylish. Filming is slated to begin in July with the aim for an end-of-the-year release.
