With K-pop’s global domination, it should come as no surprise that Hollywood has also been inspired by the Hallyu wave.
Coming off the success of Disney’s ‘Turning Red’ and the narrative surrounding the beloved idol group ALL4U, another K-pop boy band story is hopefully also going to win over the hearts of theater goers.
Director Yoon Je-kyun is gearing up for a Hollywood big budget movie currently titles “K-pop: Lost in America”.
While the film hasn’t even start production yet, it is already becoming highly anticipated by the general public.
Director Yoon is probably most well known for his work on “Ode to My father” which earned over 10 million in ticket sales.
The upcoming film will also have producer Lynda Obst who is best known for her work in the films “Interstellar” and “Sleepless in Seattle”.
The premise of the film centers around a famous K-pop group who get the chance to live our their dream by performing at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
However, due to unforeseen circumstances they somehow end up in a small rural American town and have to find their way to the concert venue in time all while grappling with language barriers and not having any money on them.
The cast has not been confirmed but there are plans to cast both famous K-pop idols as well as Hollywood actors and singers.
