Park Seo-Joon and IU show amazing on-screen chemistry in the press release of their upcoming sports-comedy film “Dream,” helmed by veteran director Lee Byeong-Heon. 

“Dream” is inspired by South Korea’s first participation in the Homeless World Cup in 2010. 

In the Yonhap News report, the Homeless World Cup is described as an annual football tournament aiming to use football to inspire and motivate homeless people and raise awareness of homelessness. Teams of homeless people from over 70 countries participate in the football tournament.   

“Dream” is written and directed by Lee Byeong-Heon, famous for his 2019 hit comedy Extreme Job. The film revolves around Yoon Hong-Dae, role by Park Seo-Joon, a football player who received disciplinary provisions and was given the challenging job of coaching South Korea’s national team. IU plays the aspiring television director Lee So-min, who follows the national team to make a documentary. 

In the press conference held in Megabox Seongsu in Seoul, IU expressed, “I received the offer and began filming the movie three years ago. After playing characters with emotional back stories in other dramas, I wanted to perform a character with no such stories. I was offered the role in ‘Dream’ around the time and gladly took part in the project.” 

IU said she gained knowledge from her co-lead Park Seo-Joon’s acting, “When the director gave some feedback abruptly, Park quickly caught on and made it his own. He is a very talented actor, and I envied him. “I was positively inspired by seeing Park Seo Joon’s acting right before my eyes.”

Park Seo-Joon also expressed his excitement about starring in the movie with IU, whom he is fond of as a fan, “I wondered what it would be like to be act with (IU) and wished I could act more scenes together when the film was almost complete. It was a pleasure for me to be with her, although regrets remain.”

“Dream” will premiere in local theaters on April 26.
