I don’t know how I feel about the character arrangements in SBS new drama Entertainer, but I do know that I unabashedly love the just released first teaser. Only two of the four leads make their appearance as music agency president Ji Sung vogues and then shimmy and shakes in a convenience store after encountering dance bug bitten Hyeri. Despite my initial hopes, the drama has them paired up while second leads Kang Min Hyuk and Chae Jung Ahn have crushes on the respective opposite gender main leads, once again sounding so much like My Lovely Girl one wonders if the script was merely dusted off and recycled with slight tweaks.
With that said, I did like MLG in the beginning and am in the mood for a bright cheerful drama that embraces the creative and energetic side of the music world. Please no moping about dead exes and dying dogs! Ji Sung has chemistry with anything, everything, and could convincingly sell me the love story of a man and his beloved tree should that be the set up, so I’m not worried about his pairing with the much younger and greener Hyeri. If anything he can bring back Ahn Yoo Na and the two can swap boy crazy stories lol.
