Jung Hae In And Lee Je Hoon Share Praise And Gratitude For Each Other After Working Together On Lee Je Hoon’s Directorial Debut
Jung Hae In’s upcoming film “Blue Happiness” has released new stills of the actor!
“Blue Happiness” is part of the “Unframed” project, a series of short films directed by actors Park Jung Min, Choi Hee Seo, Son Seok Gu, and Lee Je Hoon. Directed by Jung Hae In’s close friend Lee Je Hoon, the short film “Blue Happiness” reflects the realistic concerns of young adults in their 20s and 30s through the boom of investment techniques such as stock trading. In addition to Jung Hae In, the cast includes Lee Dong Hwi, Kim Da Ye, Tang Jun Sang, and Pyo Ye Jin.
In the new stills, Jung Hae In is shown looking intently at his phone while standing by the refrigerator. The second photo features Jung Hae In posing for Lee Dong Hwi’s photo at a restaurant.
As the director, Lee Je Hoon commented, “This is a project where I received a lot of help from actors I have relationships with. That’s why I thought that I wanted these actors to stand out and that’s what I kept as the main priority.”
Lee Je Hoon also revealed that even while writing the script, he had Jung Hae In in mind to cast, explaining, “Jung Hae In is more than 200 percent the Chan Young [Jung Hae In’s character’s name] I imagined. I was shocked every time I monitored [his scenes]. Without Jung Hae In, I think it would’ve been hard for this project to have come out like this.”
Jung Hae In shared that as soon as he received the script, he connected and related with it so deeply that he sent Lee Je Hoon a lengthy text. Jung Hae In commented, “Director Lee Je Hoon encouraged the energy for actors to act comfortably.” The actor also showcased his pure support for Lee Je Hoon by starring in the film with “no guarantee,” meaning that he decided to not receive a payment for the contract.
“Blue Happiness” is a project that showcases new sides of many top young actors and highlights Lee Je Hoon’s transformation into a director. All short films part of the “Unframed” project will be released on December 8 exclusively through the OTT platform Watcha.
