Get ready for a romantic Hawaiian adventure. Hallmark Channel’s newest original movie, Hidden Gems, premieres Saturday June 4. It stars The Young and the Restless alum Hunter King as a young woman who finds love during a trip to Hawaii for her sister’s wedding.
What is ‘Hidden Gems’ about?
In Hidden Gems, a young woman named Addie is visiting Hawaii, where she’s serving as maid of honor in her sister’s destination wedding. During a paddleboard yoga lesson, she loses her grandmother’s ring. Addie is desperate to find the treasured family heirloom, even though it’s now at the bottom of the ocean. She hires a local dive instructor named Jack to search for the missing piece of jewelry.
Jack’s a bit of a lone wolf, and he clashes with Addie, especially when she insists that she accompany him on the search because she’s also certified in scuba diving. Eventually, they reach an agreement, and Jack ends up showing Addie all of the tropical island’s hidden gems. But will their adventures bring them closer together or will an opportunity for romance be lost at sea?
‘Hidden Gems’ stars Hunter King and Beau Mirchoff
Hidden Gems stars Hunter King as Addie and Beau Mirchoff as Jack. Eliza Maher, Jordan Matlock, Diane Sargent, and Brian Connors also appear in the film.
King previously played Summer Newman on The Young and The Restless. She also portrayed Clementine in Life in Pieces. She’s the older sister of actor Joey King.
Mirchoff is known for playing Matty on the MTV series Awkward and Jamie Hunter on Good Trouble and The Fosters. He’s also appeared Narcos: Mexico and Aquarius.
The movie was filmed on location in Honolulu
Hidden Gems was filmed on location at the Kahala Hotel & Resort in Honolulu. That’s the same hotel where the 2021 movie You Had Me At Aloha with Pascale Hutton and Kavan Smith was filmed.
“It’s such a beautiful hotel and such impeccable service and it’s right on the ocean and you have this kind of private beach that’s just for the hotel and beautiful pools,” Hutton told Culturess. “And I mean, it was a dream. It was a dream vacation, really.”
