It’s IU‘s turn to take a bow and show off her look for upcoming KBS drama Producer. I really like her and find her a much better actress than she seems to get credit for with drama fans. If judged by Dream High alone then she’s barely mediocre, serviceable without being all that memorable. She was better in You are the Best, Lee Soon Shin, but that weekend drama was much too long with a weak story to wade through for her. I found her biggest improved leap in Pretty Boy (Bel Ami), which was so weird and low rated I doubt many checked it out. She showed genuine acting chops there, making a thoroughly freaky leading lady likable. She’s going to need to pull out those acting chops (and then some) to keep up with her Producer costars Gong Hyo Jin, Cha Tae Hyun, and Kim Soo Hyun. She seems very tentative when interacting with them in their first meeting which was released as an interesting BTS teaser by KBS. It’s cool to watch the four big named leads trying to wrap their minds about this drama they signed up for.
