Former Wanna One‘s Lai Guanlin is all grown up! When he first entered the spotlight through Produce 101, he was a mere 15 years old.
Later on, he successfully made his debut with Wanna One later in the same year.
Now, he’s all grown up! As he turns 21 this year, it’s only natural that he begins to take on more mature roles in dramas. While he won hearts in the high school romance A Little Thing Called First Love…
…he finally takes on a more mature role in Love The Way You Are.
Here, he tries to woo his childhood friend who is a good few years older than him. While she’s in her 30s, he’s in his 20s, freshly returned from college overseas. He seeks to pursue her romantically.
It looks like he succeeded! The two share a deep kiss.
A sweet scene in the kitchen takes place as they kiss romantically.
This is the first time that he is sharing such a deep kiss on screen.
Fans are going crazy at how much he’s grown up.
- “Nooo Guanlin-ah LOL but a kid will still be a kid…”
- “I was shocked at Kang Daniel’s kiss scene and now Guanlin too..”
- “Guanlin doing a k…iss…scene….? Guess he’s not a baby.”
- “No but already???”
- “Wow it’s been so long. Even hearing his name is awkward.”
- “No, Guanlin…”
Looks like he’s still the baby maknae of Wanna One to fans.
