Can EXO’s Suho sure the Best New Actor award with his role in”The Man Who Laughs”?
EXO leader Suho has been nominated for the Best New Actor award at the Korea Musical Awards for his role in “The Man Who Laughs.”
In “The Man Who Laughs,” Suho plays the role of Gwynplaine, a young boy disfigured by the Comprachicos left on the streets to die. He is taken in reluctantly by Ursus, a wandering showman who seems grumpy but is kind. 15 years later, Gwynplaine has become a sensation and gained the name The Laughing Man. However, his fame attracts different people who impact his life in unexpected, and perhaps, tragic ways.
Last year, the singer was nominated for the same prize at the Yegreen Musical Awards for his role in the musical “The Last Kiss” as the prince. However, the Best New Actor award went to Park Kang-hyun, who played the same role. Nonetheless, Suho got a huge round of applause when he took home the Popularity Award.
Since then, the singer has worked to improve his skills on stage and continues to learn. “I learned a lot while doing a musical,” he said in an interview. “I learn a lot from my senior colleagues and discovered that I can act with sincerity…I will become a musical someone who can act with sincerity in the future,” he declared.
