The month of December just got more special for the SHINee fans as Onew’s new single will be making a comeback. But the single isn’t the only thing that Onew is working on. Coming back to the TV screen to showcase his acting skill, Onew has also joined the cast of a mini k-drama. As announced by SM Entertainment on December 2, 2021, Onew will be taking up the lead role in Lotte Entertainment’s first short drama. “4 Minutes and 44 Seconds” is the upcoming mini k-drama with horror themes.
With each episode having a runtime of 4 minutes and 44 seconds, the drama will have eight episodes in total.

The story will be following the characters in their daily life living in an old apartment known for its eerie vibes. They might not be alone as they thought they were. According to SM Entertainment, “4 Minutes and 44 Seconds” has already started filming, and they hope the drama will be airing soon.
More About Onew’s Acting Comeback
Onew will be taking up the lead role and will be playing Ki Cheol. Ki Cheol suffered from a hearing problem as he hears a noise ringing in his ear almost every time. Living in a not-so-quiet apartment all alone with a sound ringing in the head doesn’t seem to be the ideal situation to live in. But he isn’t the only star living in the haunted (maybe) and paranoid building. As Kim So Jung (Sowon), Lovelyz’s Yoo Jiae, who will be making her acting debut with drama, and the musical artist Ham Yeon Ji has also joined the cast. Yeon Ji will be playing the role of a mother. Former I.O.I member Lim Nayoung and Lee Soo Min will be showcasing their relationship. While Kwon Hyun Bin, Kim Ji Hoon, and Park Tae In will become close friends for the show. While INFINITE’s Sungyeol is the new addition to the cast. Jang Young Nam, Jo Ji Seung, and Ryu Sung Hyun are also joining the creepy stay.
