(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- Vancouver, British Columbia Apr 22, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – It was announced early this Monday (04) that the Canadian-Portuguese singer and songwriter Saint Von Colucci is set to make his acting debut in a new Korean drama franchise that is set to premiere late next year on a major American streaming platform. The singer will play the leading role of a wealthy European exchange student that accidentally becomes an overnight k-pop idol sensation.
Besides acting in the drama, Colucci is also one of the main composers for the drama`s soundtrack. He is the main writer of two tracks featured in the drama, called “OPPA” and “Pretty Lies”. The singer will release the two songs ahead of the drama`s premiere for promotion activities.
Questioned by a journalist about the inspiration for his song “OPPA”, Colucci said:
“They are about these obnoxious young Korean guys I happened to meet during my two years living in South Korea. They all hang out around Gangnam… they all kind of look the same. They all have the same hairstyle… the same fashion style but most importantly, they all have this sense of superiority over any other race, even though they can’t put two full sentences together in any other language, especially in English. This type of entitlement makes me want to vomit right in their faces covered with make-up.”
The song, like the drama, is a satire about K-pop idols and the hyallu phenomenon worldwide.
Saint Von Colucci, 23, was born in Quebec, Canada, and moved to Korea about two years ago. To become a trainee, he also wrote and composed songs for other K-pop artists under various names.
Saint Von Colucci debuted as an actor and advertising model in Canada and began working in the entertainment industry early in 2015. Saint Von Colucci has come to life in many different countries, such as Brazil, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom, and as a result, he is fluent in five languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Korean. He is the second son of Geovani Lamas, the CEO of IBG Capital, Europe`s top hedge fund company.
The drama is set to begin streaming online late in 2022. More details about the drama will be released to the public during the media conference in September.
