Dream is emerging as the talk of the town in April’s box office, marking the first collaboration between Park Seo Joon and IU and showcasing director Lee Byung Heon’s unique blend of humor and heartwarming storytelling.
Dream tells the story of a reckless former soccer player, Hong Dae (Park Seo Joon), and a passionless TV producer, So Min (IU), who team up with a motley crew of homeless national team players to pursue an impossible dream. Director Lee Byung Heon, who received critical acclaim for his witty dialogue in the movie Extreme Job and the drama Be Melodramatic, will once again deliver memorable lines in his new movie Dream.
This upcoming true-story-based movie that chronicles a unique journey towards an impossible dream will showcase the “tiki-taka” between the director’s cheerful and witty dialogue. In particular, the hilarious bickering between soulless soccer player Hong Dae and passionless producer So Min, coupled with the non-stop comedy coming from the ragtag homeless soccer team, will provide a refreshing pleasure for the audience.
Park Seo Joon said, “It seems like Director Lee Byung Heon has his own genre. I put a lot of effort into digesting his unique tone and sense of pacing in the dialogue.” IU shared, “The most challenging part was perfectly understanding So Min’s realistic speech and the fast-paced long lines. It was a moment when I realized I was working on Director Lee’s movie.”
Dream has confirmed its release on the 26th of this month.
