Netflix has released the first trailer for its new Korean Film "What Happened to Mr. Cha?" Earlier, it confirmed that the film will be released worldwide on January 1, 2021, on Netflix. What Happened to Mr. Cha? is a comedy film about Cha In-Pyo, a megastar past his prime, struggling to restore the glory of his heyday as an actor.
With the image of a gentle and perfect man, Mr. CHA enjoyed immense popularity in the ‘90s, but he’s now a has-been, who reminisces about his glory days and waits for someone to cast him again. One day, Mr. CHA visits a gym to take a shower after a stroll but the building begins to crumble and he gets stuck in the pile. Can he get rescued while maintaining his gentle and perfect image?
In "What Happened to Mr. Cha?", the eponymous star plays himself in a transformative role the likes of which he has never before attempted. In doing so, he crosses the boundaries between his real self and the fictional character in the film. He peppers his characterization with the outgoing, relatable, and intense aspects of his own personality while delivering snippets of fresh ideas and hearty laughter. Cho Dal-hwan, who is known for his astute character analysis and steadfast performances in film and television, adds to the fun as Cha In-Pyo's manager and sidekick, Kim A-ram.
What Happened to Mr. Cha? is a new undertaking for About Film, which previously produced the film Extreme Job that set a new record with 16 million admissions. About Film is a key player in the South Korean film industry, having also produced Secret Zoo, The Sound of a Flower, and Detour. Through "What Happened to Mr. Cha?" they aim to please audiences with good clean fun and warm laughter and demonstrate the appeal of a nice, entertaining film. Kim Dong-kyu, who is handling the screenplay and directing, is gaining attention as a relative newcomer.
What Happened to Mr. Cha? is a much anticipated new venture from Cha In-Pyo filled with fresh ideas woven into all aspects of the planning and production.
