Wanna One's Lai Guan Lin is getting busy right after the group's disbandment, starting with a leap into acting.

The idol has been cast in the upcoming Chinese drama A Little Thing Called Love, which is a remake of the 2010 Thai film First Love.

Cube Entertainment stated: "Lai Guan Lin has been confirmed to appear in the drama and will begin filming. He has been cast as the male lead".

The drama follows a romance between youths and will air in the third quarter of this year in China.

Guan Lin is focusing his promotions in China for the time being. His recent appearance as the cover model of China's January issue of Harper's Bazaar sold 100,000 digital copies in the first five minutes according to Cube Entertainment, so it sounds like he's got an audience waiting for what he'll do next!
