Han Hyo Joo, Park Hyung Sik, And Jo Woo Jin Show Determination In Face Of Adversity In “Happiness” Posters
TVING’s upcoming original drama “Happiness” (literal title) has released character posters of its three leads!
“Happiness” is an apocalyptic thriller that takes place in the near future in a high-rise apartment building stratified by social status. The building is sealed off when a new infectious disease emerges in the city, and the drama will depict the residents’ fear, fierce psychological battles, and desperate struggles for survival inside the closed-off building.
Han Hyo Joo stars as Yoon Sae Bom, a tactical agent in the Seoul Police Special Operations Unit, Park Hyung Sik stars as Jung Yi Hyun, her former high school classmate and a police detective in the violent crimes division, and Jo Woo Jin stars as Han Tae Suk, the man in the Armed Forces Medical Command in charge of finding the source of the disease and stopping its spread.
Yoon Sae Bom has been dreaming of getting an apartment in this building for a long time. But when she finally achieved her dream, the place she thought would represent safety and stability became a place of danger instead. Before she could live a life of quiet happiness, the building was sealed off and threatened with a new infectious disease. Her character poster reads, “It’s quite difficult to find happiness.”
Jung Yi Hyun, who ends up living with Yoon Sae Bom after her surprise offer, also struggles to maintain the public good amid extreme chaos. He wants to protect the things that are precious to him and return to his ordinary life. His optimism is represented in his poster caption, which reads, “No matter what happens, it will all pass by.”
Although Han Tae Suk represents the man in charge of stamping out the disease, his poster caption adds a new and mysterious layer of motivation. It reads, “If there’s something I really want, I won’t surrender it,” prompting curiosity about what he’s hiding as he fights to control the spread of the disease.
The production staff of “Happiness” stated, “This is a story about ordinary people faced with extreme danger. It will be an exciting story of what happens when they have to struggle to survive in the midst of unimaginable fear and terror.”
“Happiness” is directed by Ahn Gil Ho (“Watcher,” “Memories of the Alhambra,” “Record of Youth,” “Forest of Secrets”) and written by Han Sang Woon (“Watcher,” “The Good Wife”).
It is set to premiere on November 5 at 10:40 p.m. KST. Check out a teaser here!
