With just under a month left until the first episode airs KBS has finally released their first teaser for their upcoming industry insider drama “Producer“, the drama stars Korean a-listers Cha Tae Hyun (My Sassy Girl) and Gong Hyo Jin (It’s Okay, It’s Love) as well as Kim Soo Hyun (You Who Came From the Stars) and solo artist IU as leads.
The short teaser has our four leads individually getting on a bus headed to KBS and whilst the seasoned PD’s Tak Ye Jin (Gong Hyo Jin) and Ra Joon Mo (Cha Tae Hyun) along with idol Cindy (IU) doze off on the ride to work presumably after a long night at work, rookie PD Baek Seung Chan (Kim Soo Hyun) meanwhile is wide awake and ends up having to rouse the trio when they arrive.
One interesting thing that the trailer does though, is that it keeps the pairings of the drama vague. You get a bit of Ye Jin and Joon Mo in the beginning sitting together on the bus and being chummy, and then you get Ye Jin and Seung Chan when he puts his arm around her shoulder whilst Joon Mo and Cindy look on jealously, then you’ve got Joon Mo making eyes at Cindy whilst Ye Jin looks displeased and finally to end the trailer you have Seung Chan helping Cindy off from the bus.
On a bit of a random side authors note, I really like the costuming for Gong Hyo Jin it reminds me a bit of what she wore for It’s Okay, It’s Love when she was Ji Hae Soo.
Producer airs on Fridays and Saturdays with the first episode airing on the 8th of May, and is written by You Who Came From the Stars writer Park Ji Eun and is directed by Gag Concert PD Seo Soo Min and Ho Goo’s Love PD Pyo Min Soo.
