The poster shows the starring couple staring at the window in an obvious state of perturbation and horror as the others in the apartment struggle to escape.
'Happiness' is an apocalyptic thriller
that depicts the lives of those who have been stuck in an apartment in the near future. Society has been attacked by a virulent disease and the inhabitants of the building strive to survive by founding an isolated society.
The director Ahn Gil-ho and writer Han Sang-woon are expected this time to take the psychological thriller genre to a whole new level. The two have already worked together on the TV series 'Watcher ' in 2019 and Ahn Gil-ho has also dazzled audiences with such hits as 'Record of Youth' (2020), 'Memories of the Alhambra' (2018) and 'Rooftop Prince' (2012).
