'K-POP: Lost in America' first turned heads in August 2021 when the makers of ‘Interstellar’ and ‘Parasite’ revealed that they were making a movie on K-pop. Fans were further hyped up when they realized it wasn’t a documentary but a proper feature film with a storyline about a K-pop group. With the producers having rom-coms like ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ under their belt, it is no surprise that 'K-POP: Lost in America' is a comedy having cast the likes of Rebel Wilson and Charles Melton of ‘Riverdale’ fame. And we are also reportedly getting actual K-pop idols like Astro’s Eunwoo, Monsta X’s Jooheon, GOT7’s Jinyoung, and more.

On July 1, it was reported that Cha Eunwoo was reportedly cast as one of the leads. If this is indeed true, the actor will be making his Hollywood debut with 'K-POP: Lost in America'. Along with starring in hit K-dramas like ‘True Beauty’, Eunwoo is also a K-pop idol and part of the boy group Astro. The movie is about a K-pop group that gets lost in Texas without any money or phone 2 days before their debut in New York making fans excited to see Eunwoo. With Charles Melton being half Korean, he is speculated to play another member of the fictitious group. And we just might have the rest of our boy group characters as well.
