Reaching the Small Screen
ASTRO’s maknae made his acting debut in 2015 with the pre-debut web series To Be Continued. Sanha appeared as a fictional version of himself alongside his fellow ASTRO members. In the years since, Sanha has honed his skills with roles in Soul Plate and Love Formula 11M.
Following bandmates Cha Eunwoo and Moon Bin, Sanha will be the third ASTRO member to take the small screen. His latest role follows a string of ASTRO members’ solo ventures, including musical theatre, variety show hosting, podcasting, and composing.
Arohas are in for a treat in the coming year. While Sanha makes his first TV drama appearance, Cha Eunwoo is set to take on his darkest role yet in the drama adaptation of the 2017 fantasy thriller webtoon Island, airing in the first half of 2022.
In the meantime, there’s plenty of content to catch up on. Watch DIVE Studios’ Unboxing with JinJin and Pentagon’s Kino on YouTube, check out the trailer for Your Playlist, and watch ASTRO’s “After Midnight” off their latest mini-album Switch On here!
