Jay Park is teaming up with guitarist-turned-actor Ji Hyun Woo, Kang Seo Won, and Kim Randy to form an idol group called Mr. Children for the movie Mr. Idol. The film will show the behind-the-scenes happenings that occur while creating an idol group. Kim Suro plays Sa Hee Moon, a man with the Midas touch in the entertainment industry; and Park Ye Jin acts as Oh Gu Ju, the woman behind the stars – their manager.
Music artist Jay Park is expanding his activities to include acting. He plays Jio who’s an original member of the disbanded group Mr. Children; currently, Jio works as a club DJ. He’s an edgy character who talks rough and has an assault criminal record. Fans can expect heat and tension as Jio fights over the new lead vocal Yoo Jin (Ji Hyun Woo).
Mr. Children also consist of Yoo Jin, an indie band rocker. Guitarist-turned-actor Ji Hyun Woo is from an actual band called the Nuts, making him the perfect match for his character. Jang Seo Won, who has gained recognition for his role as Gil Ra Im’s senior stuntman in SBS’s Secret Garden, plays immature rookie member Hyun Yi. Kim Randy of hip hop duo Electroboyz plays GiKi, a rapper with a peculiar dialect.
Mr. Idol plans to release later this year. It’ll be interesting to see Jay Park as part of a group after he started focusing on his solo career.
