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.
