NU’EST W Ren was hotly received on Thailand. He proved his ‘Hallyu Idol’ popularity. Last month, he filmed on Bangkok for the sitcom “Something Family Season 2”.

“Something Family” is a Thai weekend sitcom. It is popular enough to be broadcasted in even Singapore and China. Ren’s role is Sungmin (nickname: Mali), an heir of a large company in Korea.

“The producer casted me after seeing my image on a pictorial. Saying I match well with flowers, he suggested the role of ‘Mali’. I’ll work hard (to enact the role)!” (Ren)

This place is a certain hotel in Bangkok. As soon as he arrived, Ren played in the waters (went swimming). He had fun swimming as it is a vacation he haven’t had in a long time.

“Before we filmed, it was nice that I was able to ease my nervousness through swimming. But it’s lonely as I am on my own. It would have been fun if I was with my members together…”

Because I’m alone, it’s lonely

“I miss the members”

Finally, the following day, the filming for the sitcom started. First, he shared greetings with the producer. After hearing what the project was about, he was able to capture the character.

Ren perfectly transformed into ‘Sungmin’. After hearing the news that his real father is in Thailand, he pretends that he lost his memory. He was in harmony with the famous local actors.

“As it is my first sitcom, I was so nervous. I was also nervous as it is my first time to act with Thai actors. Fortunately, I received an OK at one take so I am happy.”

He also challenged comic acting. Ren refused when the family said they’d find his home. He created laughter as he held on to the table while acting.

The first day of filming ended. Ren went home wearing exclusive-item pants that he bought at a night market the previous day. He received compliments from the staff with his styling that is full of sense.

The next day’s filming was more special. The local press concentrated on Ren’s sitcom filming image. Every time Ren moves, the shutter sounds were faster.

That day, Ren greeted first using the Thai language. The local press fell for kind Ren’s manners. He also took a proof shot with the fans who went to the scene.

Finally, is the story of the local staff that he filmed with.
