With such an impressive lead cast, writer Park Ji Eun of hit drama You Who Came From the Stars penning the script and veteran romcom directer Pyo Min Soo (Ho Gu’s Love, You’ve Fallen for Me, Flower Boy Ramyun Shop) at the helm, it’s no surprise that any news on the upcoming KBS drama Producer has been received with great interest.
The first stills have recently been released, featuring Gong Hyo Jin in character as Tak Ye Jin, PD of Music Bank. and Cha Tae Hyun as Ra Joon Mo, the veteran PD of 1 Night 2 Days.
A poster shoot of the four leads also give us a look at Kim Soo Hyun and IU as rookie PD and top singer as well. Admittedly I can’t say I’m excited by this shot; it already points to a dreaded love triangle with Kim Soo Hyun at the center. With his star billing it’s not at all surprising, but can’t we give Cha Tae Hyun some love, too? Perhaps with Gong Hyo Jin? Pretty please?
Setting the drama within an a fictionalized AU version of reality is going to be interesting though – it certainly promises to mess with the minds of drama and variety lovers as they try to keep different versions of reality straight (imagine watching an episode or two of Producer and then catching up with the week’s episode of 1 Night 2 Days…), which should be fun.
The premiere episode of Producer will air on May 8 on KBS.
