I feel like domestic audiences are looking forward to upcoming KBS Fri-Sat night new drama Producer more than overseas fans. Or maybe it just seems that way because the K-media is so curious about a variety of factors surrounding Producer – a short 12-episode drama, being produced by the variety show department of KBS, comeback of Kim Soo Hyun, huge cast including Gong Hyo Jin, Cha Tae Hyun, and IU, and being written by You From Another Star screenwriter Park Ji Eun.
I’m curious for all of the above to, and because I like all four leads in the cast, not to mention this thing still seems so unexpected and unreal. Seeing the first drama teaser helps ground it in reality, a scene showing all four leads in character getting on a bus headed to KBS studios set to the Avril Lavigne’s boppy “What the Hell”. I won’t read too much into any possible romantic pairings but am loving how each lead perfectly shows off their character’s personality even in such a short time: experienced Cha Tae Hyun, quirky cool Gong Hyo Jin, dorky earnest Kim Soo Hyun, and aloof haughty IU. Love it!
