Jenny Jimin Daniel Hollywood K-pop stars are popular in love calls
K-pop artists such as Jenny, Jimin, and Daniel are receiving love calls from Hollywood. He also appears in his own works and is promoting his name to Hollywood in various ways such as OST and dubbing.
On the 22nd (local time), Jenny attended the HBO “The Idol” world premiere red carpet event at the 76th Cannes International Film Festival at the Lumiere Grand Theater in southern France.
The Idol is Jenny’s first acting debut. Jenny’s first acting challenge drew attention not only from domestic but also from global fans. “The Idol” depicts the complex relationship between idol stars and the cultural industry in the background of LA, and Jenny was named in the casting lineup with Weekend, Lily Rose Depp, and Troy Sivan. Jenny plays Diane, the backup dancer of Jocelyn, who dreams of becoming a pop star.
“It was a chance to be myself and be brave,” Jenny said in an interview before the red carpet event with Magazine WWD. “It was definitely difficult because I had no acting experience. “It was like breaking a wall,” he said. “The fact that I was with Lily Rose Depp at the scene was very comforting. “He made me feel comfortable and helped me not to be afraid,” he said.
Jimin, a BTS member, participated in the original soundtrack (OST) album of “Fast and Furious: Ride or Die” released on the 19th, drawing attention. Jimin was a vocalist for the OST “Angel Pt.1” by American hip-hop artists Kodak Black and NLE Choppa. Jimin was the first Korean singer to participate in the OST of the “Fast and Furious” series, as well as to appear in the music video of the song.
The main character of the domestic version of Disney’s live-action version of “The Little Mermaid” was also a K-pop star. In addition to the dubbing of the main character Ariel, Daniel of Newzins sang the main OST “Part of Your World” himself.
The music video of Daniel’s “The Little Mermaid” OST “To There” in Korean was released on the 17th and exceeded 2.8 million views in a day. Netizens who watched the music video also gave good reviews, saying that Daniel’s pure voice tone and Ariel’s image match well.
As such, the number of K-pop singers entering overseas screens is increasing as much as domestic actors entering Hollywood. K-pop stars have emerged as Hollywood’s new box office trend in terms of marketing with their powerful fandom on their back. In addition, most of the members, including Newzins, Espa, and Nmix, are active as global ambassadors for luxury brands around the world. As not only Hollywood screens but also global luxury brands are eager to invite K-pop artists, the global performance of K-pop stars is expected to grow even more
