EXO singer D.O (Do Kyungsoo) is gaining more experience as an actor, and is set to debut as a lead actor in the 2016 romantic film Pure Love, and he revealed that he did not really have a hard time taking on the role.

D.O said that it was easier for him to get into character because of certain similarities he shared with the male lead.

"Acting itself wasn't hard. I rather felt comfortable, because I'm very bad in expressing my feelings in real life," the idol reportedly said during the media briefing for Pure Love held earlier this week, reports The Korea Herald.

Pure Love tells the story of a radio DJ that gets a hold of a letter that was sent more than two decades ago, which then sparks a romance with the lead actress Kim So Hyun.

While D.O was fairly comfortable playing his character, he did have to work on delivering romantic lines more naturally.

"I thought a lot about how to say these lines without making anyone cringe, like when saying 'I will protect you forever,'" D.O confessed.

Pure Love will release next month, and after that D.O should start preparing for his other confirmed movie starring role in 2016, the family drama Older Brother.
