tvN has unveiled an intriguing poster for its upcoming drama “Happiness” (literal translation)!”

“Happiness” is an apocalyptic city thriller that takes place in the near future within an apartment that is stratified by social standing. The high-rise apartment housing diverse people becomes sealed off when a new infectious disease emerges, and the drama will depict the fear, fierce psychological battle, and desperate struggle for survival. “Happiness” will be a realistic horror drama in which the people become suspicious of each other in the enclosed space as their daily lives fall apart and their pre-existing values begin to waver.

Han Hyo Joo stars as Yoon Sae Bom, a tactical agent in the Seoul Police Special Operations Unit who is decisive and has fast judgment. Park Hyung Shik plays Jung Yi Hyun, an intelligent and honest violent crimes detective who wants to pursue a sweet relationship with Yoon Sae Bom. Jo Woo Jin takes the role of commander Han Tae Suk of the Armed Forces Medical Command, who holds the key to the infectious disease.

On October 7, the drama unveiled a suspenseful poster starring the three main characters. The atmosphere is cold, hinting that a crisis has interrupted everyone’s daily lives. The apartment that was once everyone’s haven fills with fear, and people panic as they race down the stairs. On the contrary, Yoon Sae Bom, Jung Yi Hyun, and Han Tae Suk are going up the stairs, and they look out the window with serious and concerned eyes. The poster’s caption states that the world they knew yesterday has collapsed.

The producers of “Happiness” teased, “Everyone’s daily lives will become completely different due to an unidentified new infectious disease. The struggle for survival during an extreme crisis that is eroded by anxiety and fear will be depicted realistically. The current ongoing fear of what can actually happen during an ‘infectious disease’ and the psychological warfare in an enclosed space will deliver a different kind of fun as well as genre-based pleasure.”

“Happiness” will premiere on November 5 at 10:40 p.m. KST via tvN and TVING.

tvN’s upcoming drama “Happiness” (literal title) has unveiled its first teaser!

 

“Happiness” is an apocalyptic thriller that takes place in the near future and is set in a high-rise apartment building stratified by social standing. 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 struggle for survival within the closed-off building.

 

In the newly released teaser, the characters’ peaceful lives are turned upside down in the blink of an eye. Han Tae Suk (played by Jo Woo Jin) warns ominously, “Just because things were all right yesterday doesn’t mean that things will be all right today.” Yoon Sae Bom (Han Hyo Joo) tries to remain upbeat, countering, “Does worrying change anything?” Jung Yi Hyun (Park Hyung Sik) optimistically agrees, “This, too, will pass.”

 

However, the two characters’ hopes come crashing down as the caption reads, “The world as we knew it up until yesterday has collapsed.” With the entire city fighting for their lives, Han Tae Suk says, “I, too, am doggedly trying to survive in order to protect my family.” Jung Yi Hyun then points his gun at an unseen enemy, asking, “What do you think you’re doing?” 

 

As Jung Yi Hyun and Yoon Sae Bom frantically run from danger, Yoon Sae Bom says in voice-over, “Becoming happy… it’s not easy.”

 

“Happiness” will premiere on November 5 at 10:40 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the new teaser below!

Watch: Han Hyo Joo, Park Hyung Sik, And Jo Woo Jin Talk About Their Characters In Script Reading Video For New Drama

tvN released a behind-the-scenes video from the script reading of the upcoming drama “Happiness” (literal title)!

“Happiness” is an apocalyptic urban thriller that takes place in the near future within an apartment that is stratified by social standing. The high-rise apartment that houses diverse people becomes sealed off when a new infectious disease emerges, and the drama will depict the fear, psychological battles, and desperate struggles for survival that ensue.

Han Hyo Joo stars as Yoon Sae Bom, a tactical agent in the Seoul Police Special Operations Unit, known for her decisiveness and quick judgment. Park Hyung Sik stars as Jung Yi Hyun, an intelligent and honest police detective in the violent crimes division. He is a former high school classmate of Yoon Sae Bom and harbors a sweet, romantic side. Jo Woo Jin stars as Han Tae Suk, who is in the Armed Forces Medical Command and in charge of secretly discovering the cause of the infectious disease and stopping its spread.

In the script reading video, Han Hyo Joo introduced Yoon Sae Bom by saying, “Her motto is, ‘In this chaotic world, let’s live a comfortable life.’ She’s action-oriented to the point that she sometimes acts before she thinks, but her recklessness can also be quite lovable. I think it was fate to meet a character who is so much like myself. When I read the script, meeting the character of Yoon Sae Bom felt like destiny.

Park Hyung Sik said, “It’s been a long time since I said hello. After being discharged from the military, I am back as the police officer Jung Yi Hyun. He’s pure-hearted with a strong sense of justice, but he also has a blunt and tenacious side. I think that he’s a very multifaceted person.

Jo Woo Jin said, “He holds the key to the infectious disease. He needs to find the cause and stop its spread. You can’t tell what he’s thinking inside, but as you watch the drama, you’ll learn what kind of character he really is.”

To describe Sae Bom and Yi Hyun’s relationship, Han Hyo Joo said, “Like a house? Sae Bom has a lot of dreams about her own home. Park Hyung Sik has a great sense of sociableness. He approached me when we first met and was very friendly, so I was able to feel comfortable as well.” Park Hyung Sik described their characters’ relationship as each other’s “saviors,” but the production staff had to bleep out the rest of what he said due to spoilers.

Recalling why she had initially found the drama so appealing, Han Hyo Joo commented, “The script was so much fun, and I was able to immerse myself fully in the character of Yoon Sae Bom because she was similar to me at that time.”

Describing her character, she continued, “Yoon Sae Bom is daring and honest, and she’s someone with a spirited charm. She immediately puts her thoughts into action, and there are times when she’ll act first before thinking, but I actually found that personality satisfying to play. There are times when I experience a vicarious thrill while acting [as Yoon Sae Bom].”

Han Hyo Joo also revealed that she had approached the character differently from her past roles. “Since we were similar in many respects, I was able to create Yoon Sae Bom even without intentionally developing and trying to act out the character. I feel like because Yoon Sae Bom resembles the Han Hyo Joo of right now, that feeling of similarity and the way I’m able to relate to the character come through in my acting.”

tvN’s new drama “Happiness” has shared its first peek of Jo Woo Jin in character!

“Happiness” is an apocalyptic urban thriller that takes place in the near future within an apartment that is stratified by social standing. The high-rise apartment that houses diverse people becomes sealed off when a new infectious disease emerges, and the drama will depict the fear, psychological battles, and desperate struggles for survival that ensue.

Han Hyo Joo stars as Yoon Sae Bom, a tactical agent in the Seoul Police Special Operations Unit, known for her decisiveness and quick judgment. Park Hyung Sik stars as Jung Yi Hyun, an intelligent and honest police detective in the violent crimes division.

Jo Woo Jin shared his thoughts on the drama, saying, “Like the catchphrase of the drama ‘Currently Progressive Horror’, I got the feeling that this is a ‘reality-based drama’. The content of the outbreak of a new disease itself is not much different from the present reality, which destroys the wish that ‘it will end soon, it will be over soon.’ That is the charm and differentiation of ‘Happiness’.”

Concerning his character Han Tae Suk, the actor commented, “He’s a mysterious character. In the beginning, he functions as a character that raises the tension of the drama, but in the end, he is also a character who will be seen as a ‘person.'”

Then he added, “It will be fun to watch how Han Tae Suk changes, how his emotions flow, and what his character is like.”

“Happiness” will premiere on November 5 at 10:40 p.m. KST.

TVING’s upcoming drama “Happiness” (literal title) has released its second teaser!

“Happiness” is an apocalyptic urban thriller that takes place in the near future within an apartment that is stratified by social standing. The high-rise apartment becomes sealed off when a new infectious disease emerges, and the drama will depict the fear, psychological battles, and desperate struggles for survival that ensue.

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, 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 cause of the disease and stopping its spread.

The first teaser focused on the fear and terror of the people whose everyday lives are turned upside down in an instant. The second teaser reveals more about the new infectious disease at the root of this fear and upheaval. The video kicks off with the question, “You know the symptoms?”, which include hallucinations, severe thirst, slower heartbeat, resistance to pain, and faster healing from wounds. Yoon Sae Bom, Jung Yi Hyun, and Han Tae Suk meet several infected patients and are shocked at the transformation from human into something else.

Yoon Sae Bom is taken to an examination room after potential contamination and Han Tae Suk says suspiciously, “It seems you still have no symptoms.” Yoon Sae Bom responds coolly, “It seems like I’m a pretty important person.” Han Tae Suk then informs Yoon Sae Bom and Jung Yi Hyun that they have to survive this hell for just one week to quarantine the disease and discover its source.

Praising her co-star, Han Hyo Joo remarked, “Park Hyung Sik is kind, and he’s an actor who makes everyone around him feel comfortable.

Meanwhile, Park Hyung Sik commented, “[Han Hyo Joo] is extremely attentive and warm. I felt that she’s someone with a lot of affection for others.”

He went on to express confidence in their chemistry, teasing, “I think that Sae Bom and Yi Hyun have something tough and long-lasting that others don’t have, and I think you can safely look forward to great chemistry.”
