The highly-anticipated animated film Trolls: World Tour by DreamWorks has announced the participation of the two idols in its Korean-dubbed version as the voices of its two main characters.

Red Velvet’s main vocalist Wendy has given the film a cheerful boost, perfectly expressing the cheerful energy of positive pop troll Poppy who loves singing and dancing. It is also expected to entertain the audience’s ears through Wendy’s clear voice and outstanding singing.

On top of that, Rowoon of SF9, who has bagged Best New Actor awards by captivating television viewers for his latest drama Extraordinary You, has turned into Branch, a friend of Poppy through a thorough preparation. Rowoon’s stable acting and singing skills draw attention as he is expected to amplify the appeal of Branch.

Along with the announcement, the film unveiled its main poster featuring lovely images of Wendy and Rowoon, who also maximized the charms of Poppy and Branch.

Earlier in February, Red Velvet was also announced to be participating in the movie itself as the representatives of K-Pop in the world of Trolls. Moreover, their song “Russian Roulette” also features in the film and will add to the fun in the film.

Expressing her thoughts on taking the challenge of dubbing, Wendy said, “I was very happy to hear that Red Velvet will appear as a K-Pop troll on Trolls: World Tour. All of our members enjoyed recording it, and I also did my best to play the roles of ‘K-POP Troll’ and Poppy,”

Rowoon also said, “It was more fun playing the character because I was also able to sing along with doing voice dubbing. I hope a lot of people can enjoy and watch it.”

Meanwhile, Trolls: World Tour—the sequel to Trolls (2016), which recorded $350 million in box office revenue worldwide—features an exciting adventure story that unfolds in an expanded worldview. On top of that, a number of new troll characters with different looks and songs, ranging from pop to rock to classical, country, punk and techno, will appear to present a more colorful feast of music.

Armed with such a variety of attractions, the film further boosts audience’s expectations with Wendy and Rowoon’s announced participation.

Meanwhile, Trolls: World Tour is set to open simultaneously in theaters and VODs nationwide on April 29.
