EXO’s Kris working on Chinese film “Somewhere Only We Know” in Prague

K-pop boy band EXO's Kris is working on the new film “Somewhere Only We Know” in Prague, his first acting project since he sued his management agency in May.

BEIJING: Chinese actress-director Xu Jinglei on Tuesday revealed in a micro blog post that K-pop boy band EXO’s Kris stars in her new movie “Somewhere Only We Know”.

Xu, who directs and stars in the film, said the production team had successfully completed the first day of filming and described it as “the beginning of a new journey”.

She accompanied her post with a series of publicity photos of Kris and his co-stars Wang Li Kun, Juck Zhang as well as Reyizha Alimjan.

It is Kris’ big screen debut and first acting project after he sued his management agency SM Entertainment in May, in a bid to terminate his contract with the company.

Both parties have since been ordered by the courts to undergo mediation.

“Somewhere Only We Know” tells the tale of a young woman who travels to Europe after getting dumped by her fiance, and finds romance there.

The film is currently in production in Prague, the Czech Republic, and is expected to be released on Valentine’s Day next year.
