Suho of EXO will play the lead role in a remake of the 2012 Japanese drama “Rich Man, Poor Woman,” his agency S.M. Entertainment said Friday.

It will mark the singer-actor’s return to the small screen in 10 months since he appeared on the MBC drama “The Universe’s Star” in January.

Starring Shun Oguri and Satomi Ishihara, the original Japanese drama tells the love story of a young IT entrepreneur and a college girl who has trouble finding a job though she went to the prestigious Tokyo University.
