Eight-time Grammy award winning artist Anderson .Paak is making his directorial debut with his first feature film, K-POPS!

K-POPS! is a dramatic comedy that follows a musician on his travels to Korea to write for K-Pop stars. But along his journey, he reconnects with his long-lost son, who is part of one of the country’s most famous groups. As per Deadline, the musician played by Anderson .Paak himself attempts to use his son’s fame to boost his own career but is later forced to face the realities of fatherhood. Paak’s own son, Soul Rasheed will also be starring alongside him in the film.

Paak explained the influences of this project, whom he developed with rapper Jon “Dumbfounded” Park, “My mom is from Korea but she was adopted so I never knew anything about my Korean heritage until I met my wife. This movie is a reflection on my experience learning about this part of myself alongside my wife and son – and spending even more time with them!” He added, “I knew this would be something I should write and direct, and Stampede Ventures took a chance and trusted that I could pull this off. Im excited to bring it to the big screen.” Park also shared, “As a long time friend of Anderson’s I’ve seen him expand his creative vision time and time again. I’m excited for my production company “Big Dummie” to be a part of of this unique story that brings together and celebrates Black and Asian culture through the love of music. I also can’t wait for the world to meet his son, Soul Rasheed who I know everyone is going to love!”

The release date for K-POPS! has not yet been revealed.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Paramount+ recently confirmed a new Jackass series is in the works.
