It’s so nice of KBS drama Producer to give me a two-fer this week – I’ve fallen for the charms of the drama in the second week and in the third week comes a cameo by a K-star whom I love to pieces. Lee Seung Gi will be showing up in the 6th episode of the variety show drama and will have scenes with Gong Hyo Jin and IU. It’s unclear if he’ll be playing himself but so far all the celebrity cameos have been folks playing themselves, and all seamlessly and hilariously integrated into the story line. I’m loving Producer now that the story has gotten started in earnest and the flow has improved, even the variety show inside jokes work on the top layer for a newbie like me even if the deeper jokes fail to register. The four leads are wonderful to watch and the drama is much better than the initial two episodes would suggest. With Seung Gi showing up in the 6th episode it just means even more stuff to look forward to.
Lee Seung Gi famously cameo’d in the Hong sisters drama Best Love as himself opposite male lead Cha Seung Won. It was so adorable and popular the two men landed a joint fridge CF together afterwards. Hopefully Seung Gi’s Producers cameo will be as entertaining.
