And let me tell you, I can’t wait! If you’re not familiar with Doyoung, he’s one of the million and five members of NCT, a power vocal who primarily lives with NCT 127, but you can sometimes see him highlighted in NCT U. Doyoung can also always be found on my phone as one of my Starpop characters, so I can say I’m especially excited for the information that he’s going to make his first real attempt at acting!
The show is called Cafe Midnight Season 3: The Curious Stalker. Uhoh. Doyoungie, are you being naughty? Looking at the teaser the show looks lush and beautiful. Sure he’s playing a high school student, but if the teaser is any indication, he can pull it off.
So the original series is about a mysterious cafe that pops up only at night and is inhabited by people during all time periods and they go there and…well it’s a Korean drama… so I’m going to guess they go there and manage to fix all of their problems in between sips of Americanos. As Americanos tend to solve all of my morning problems, sure, why not?
Doyoungie plays your average everyday high schooler, who just so happens to see the future. He has a mom who is slipping into dementia, is catching some feelings for a friend, and gets an invite to this mysterious coffee shop. Sounds like he has a lot on his plate, poor kid.
At four fifteen-minute episodes, this is going to be one of those blink and you’ll miss it web shows which, on the one hand, is disappointing, but on the other hand, which my ever-decreasing attention span, this means the likelihood of me watching the whole thing just shot up about 300%! I mean, if I made it through the nothingness of Handmade Love at 8 episodes, there’s no excuse to finish this one! Plus, as I do have this emotional attachment to Doyoung brought on by Starpop, I really HAVE to watch, otherwise, how am I going to look at his little animated face every day as I send him off on his little animated jobs?
Joking aside, I’m actually really interested in this show and will be interested to see how Doyoung does as an actor. Cafe Midnight Season 3: The Curious Stalker starts February 19th!
