The movie took place in Bali, Indonesia, and tells the story of Kay (played by Thunder), who is a K-pop idol, running away from his schedule in Bali.

Thunder’s Love life
Thunder is a famous idol both in Korea and around the world. During the course of his career he’s worked with many beautiful girls, but does he actually have someone special to his heart?
It turns out that he’s never had a girlfriend! It was confirmed by his fellow group member, Seung-ho, in the 26th episode of Idol Manager. One of the hosts said that Thunder is probably the type of guy that will be the first one to initiate a break-up. Seung-ho responded to that statement by saying that Thunder had never had a girlfriend before. Even so, Thunder revealed that he had his first kiss! But don’t worry, girls, it happened as part of a production. He also said that he’s not good at expressing his feelings, that’s why no he likes ever knows about it.
It’s been a very long time since we’ve seen him on variety shows, reality shows, or music shows. But don’t worry, we can always keep track of what he’s up to through his social media!
