The Boss’ Jay to play a blind boy in upcoming film, “Ocean”
Jay, a member of Hallyu idol group The Boss, will be making his debut on the big screen!
Jay has been cast as the role of a blind boy named ‘Taesung’ in the movie, “Ocean“. He’ll be acting alongside Go Soo Hee and Kim Jin Yi as an artist who draws with his heart, not his sight.
Since the role requires a bit more training than the average role, Jay impressed staff with his ability to express his character beautifully.
Director Yoon Tae Sik revealed that he was quite upset at not being able to find the perfect actor to play ‘Taesung’ until Jay came along. He said that he was blown away by Jay’s youthful, pure looks and his level of focus, casting him directly on the spot.
“Ocean” is about ‘Taesung’ and his encounter with Kim Jin Yi and Go Soo Hee, characters who have given up all hope in life. Together, they go on a road trip in search of an ocean.
The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on September 1st.
