NCT’s Jaehyun cast in another drama, fans can’t get enough of this news

Jaehyun Actor era is finally back, NCTzens and Valentines. 

News of NCT’s Jaehyun being cast for another drama had been circulating social media after industry representatives reported it earlier this week. Later, SM Entertainment confirmed this news in a statement saying, “It is true that Jaehyun is starring in an OTT drama remake of the film ‘Bungee Jumping of Their Own’.” 

Jaehyun’s casting as Im Hyun Bin in the drama remake of the 2001 film ‘Bungee Jumping of Their Own’ marks his “acting debut”, as his first drama ‘Dear.M’ has yet to be aired due to the bullying allegations against the female lead.

NCTzens and Valentines (Jaehyun stans) went wild after hearing this news, even bringing the topics “Jaehyun”, “JAEHYUN ACTOR”, and “NCT재현” to Twitter’s trending topics. 

Reactions to the news were actually divided among fans, as ‘Bungee Jumping on their Own’ is considered to be a BL because of the love story between the male lead Seo In-woo and Im Hyun Bin (Jaehyun’s character). 

Jaehyun is the next NCT member to have confirmed acting debuts, following Jaemin (Method to Love You), Xiaojun (Welcome High School Students), Doyoung (Cafe Midnight), and Winwin. 

NCTzens keep winning these past few weeks. Let’s keep that momentum going, most especially for NCT’s upcoming activities. (I heard that Haechan said that there will be 2 big projects soon).
