Nichkhun’s first-ever drama series, “One And a Half Summer,” began to air on the same day that filming began for “Bucket List,” his second drama series in China.
“One And a Half Summer” set a record with 1.5 million online viewers shortly after the first episode was aired at 7:30 p.m. The singer-actor also managed to rank third on a local Internet chart of popular people.
With Nichkhun’s rapid rise to stardom on the mainland, he was offered plenty of scripts to choose from. The K-pop singer opted to play the main character on “Bucket List.”
The Korean-Chinese joint production will feature Wang Dongcheng from the popular Taiwanese boy band Fahrenheit, upping the excitement for fans in many Asian countries.
Following Nichkhun’s birthday on Tuesday, “One And A Half Summer” gained popularity, hinting at greater attention towards “Bucket List.”
