K-pop star Hani of EXID cast in web drama ‘XX’

Hani, a member of the girl group EXID, has been cast in her very first web drama titled XX which marks her foray into acting.

XX is the newest project by Lee Seul, who has previously written hit web dramas like The Love Playlist and This Flower-like Ending. Its story takes place at a speakeasy bar with exclusive membership. A refreshing take on the lives of people in love will be shown in the drama. There will also be a revenge plot to make the show more interesting.

Hani will be playing the role of Yoon Na-na, the head bartender at the speakeasy bar. She is very popular there and aims to acquire the bar in the future. She presents a cold exterior to the world but struggles to hide her kind heart in front of customers who come to her with stories of heartbreak. Hani, who was known for her sexy on-stage but cute off-stage charms as an idol, is expected to play this character to perfection.

Actor Hwang Seung-eon will be playing Hani’s ex-best friend Lee Ru-mi. An incident five years ago led them to cut ties with each other. Hwang’s character is financially well-off, and thus enjoys success despite her young age. She also comes across as arrogant while hiding a weak heart underneath.

In addition, actor Lee Jong-won will play Hani’s best friend and potential love interest in the show.

XX will have a total of 10 episodes and premiere in January 2020.

Indoor Enthusiast (Esha) is a staff writer at Kdramapal. She is responsible for bringing all the latest happenings in Kdramaland, as well as features and recaps of currently airing dramas, to the readers of the site. As a gender studies student, she loves analyzing K-dramas through the lens of gender politics and social justice. You're most likely to find her droning on and on about how Ji Hae-soo from It's Okay That's Love and Sung Bora from Reply 1988 are the best heroines to ever grace our screens. Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First. She lives in India, spends all her free time reading books, and would love nothing more than to meet Gong Hyo-jin and sign away her life's earnings to the actress. Indoor Enthusiast can be reached at [email protected]
