Doh Kyungsoo Says He Struggled Wearing ‘Thick Spacesuit All the Time’ –Here’s Why
In the forthcoming movie, “The Moon,” the story of a space explorer who was left alone in the vast space is depicted.
Doh Kyungsoo takes on the role of Hwang Seon Woo, the astronaut who got stranded in space and was thousands of miles away from Earth.
Due to the unexpected and shocking incident, Sol Kyung Gu, who plays former space center director Jae Guk, is set to embark on a difficult mission to save Hwang Seon Woo.
Meanwhile, Kim Hee Ae portrays the role of Moon Young, the International Space Station chief director.
At the press briefing, Doh Kyungsoo gets honest and reveals the challenges he had during the filming of the upcoming movie.
As obtained by a media outlet, the EXO member said that he struggled with his costume.
Since his character is an astronaut, he wears a thick spacesuit most of the time.
Besides his heavy costume, the movie was shot in two seasons: winter and summer.
“What surprised me the most was that even during the shoots that took place in the winter, the staff turned on the air conditioner for me because it was very hot wearing the thick spacesuit all the time,” he said.
