JAKARTA, 25 OCTOBER 2017 - For the first time in history, a movie project titled 'Forever Holiday in Bali' marks as the first film collaboration between Indonesia and Korea. This was announced at the movie's Press Conference at Jakarta Fashion Week (JFW) 2018 Korean Takes the Stage by KOCCA. This collaboration between two countries is a first step to make new stye of Indonesian movie. In the future, there will be more chances for Indonesian and Korean film makers to work together to create movies.
Starring Thunder (Park Sanghyun), from the former K-pop Idol Group MBLAQ and now under Mystic Entertainment as the main character "Kay" with Indonesian actress Caitlin Halderman as the female protagonist "Putri", 'Forever Holiday in Bali' is a romantic love story of two young people who have different cultures and backgrounds in the beautiful island of Bali. One can expect the typical swoon and dream-like romantic comedy plot we know as the winning formula from Korea but with that all-new fresh juice of the coming of reputable crews from both Indonesia and Korea together - the script was written in three languages: English, Indonesian and Korean!
With the power of romcom and love as the plot, it's a definite promise that every single Korean drama fan will be able to enjoy this kooky, first-step movie - expect a lot of amateur laughs and awkward cross-encounters between cultures of the two characters which we all will grow to love. Not to mention, the island of Bali as the setting will help promote the beautiful green fields of Jatiluwih, the crowded Legian area, the traditonal houses of Puri Kukuh, until the virgin beauty of Melasti beach, the movie shows the beautiful land and culture of Indonesia.
Futhermore, the post production stages of this movie are done in both countries, Indonesia and Korea. The sound mix and online editing of this movie are processed in Indonesia while the color grading is processed in Korea by CJ Powercast, a reputable color grading studio in Korea.
Each member of the team and country brings together their passion and experience to create the movie. Check out the movie trailer above and see it in Indonesian theatres premiering February 2018!
