Looks like upcoming KBS Friday night varie-drama Producer is going the safe way in unveiling the leads, judging by the release of Cha Tae Hyun stills followed by a peek at Gong Hyo Jin, the network is going in order of age seniority which works for me. It’s a four lead drama with the two younger leads being Kim Soo Hyun and IU, with the three of them playing PDs while IU is the outlier as the top idol singer. The drama is coming up faster than expected, it’s mid-April already and the drama is scheduled to drop on May 8th.
Seeing the first stills really doesn’t sell the drama yet since I love the main cast and know what everyone looks like, and all four basically always look great in whatever character. I’m a viewer guaranteed to check out this drama but am wondering how many others aren’t fans of the leads but are curious about a drama being produced by the variety department of KBS (though now with a veteran drama PD) and written by the screenwriter of the biggest K-drama hit in years You From Another Star? I don’t see how this drama could fail, but the biggest hurdle is not living up to the high expectations and merely being okay. Please don’t do that, drama! I’m counting on you to be different and awesome.
