Jay Park will star as an idol singer in the movie, Happy Together (produced by Daisy Entertainment).
On the 10th, a staffer affiliated with SidusHQ revealed, “Jay has been confirmed to star in Happy Together.” Happy Together is directed by Ra Hee-Chan, who also directed Leave When They Applaud (박수칠 때 떠나라), and produced by Daisy Entertainment.
Happy Together is a story about the growth of a 4-member idol group that opened their eyes to money and popularity at too young of an age. They face a crisis when their well-respected leader falls from the stage, and the gap is filled by a member of an indie band member from Hongdae.
Jay Park, who plays the number 2 of the group, disagrees on everything with the new member from the indie band (Ji Hyun-Woo), who thinks “idols are products,” and comes into conflict with him. But in the end, they harmonize with music as their common interest.
Kim Soo-Ro stars as the CEO of the agency that houses the idols, Park Si-Yeon as the famous producer that nurtures them. Jang Young-Nam, Go Chang-Suk, Yim Won-Hee, and others have also joined the cast.
A staffer of Happy Together said, “Jay, who finished the shooting of Hype Nation, showed his motivation through the several meetings we had. The staff visited Jay during his [Big 4] concert at Jeonju and supported him.” According to him, the shooting of Happy Together is slated to begin in late December.
