K-ent Discusses How Currently Popular Stars are Doing Back-to-Back Dramas Including Ahn Hyo Seob, Lee Se Young, Song Kang, and Kim Se Jung

I knew it wasn’t just me that so many articles I write in the last year or so keep including the same stars frequently. A recent K-ent post (article click here) discusses what is going on right now – there are so many K-dramas in production due to the new popularity on Netflix, more streaming sites getting into producing their own, and the shorter dramas allows for the production to be shorter on each so more can be made. Recently Ahn Hyo Seob and Kim Se Jung finished A Business Proposal and both are already lined up with new projects, he’s in the K-drama remake of TW-drama Someday or One Day and she’s in the K-drama remake of J-dorama Today’s Webtoon. Song Kang has been see in 5 straight dramas in a row and is reportedly fielding multiple new drama offers and is expected to accept one soon. Lee Se Young recently did the hit sageuk Red Cuff and will be starting filming the rom-com with Lee Seung Gi. This is also leading to supporting actors and actresses more quickly getting leading roles after just one breakout, including Hwang In Yeob, Kim Young Dae, Ahn Eun Jin, Shin Hyun Bin, Lee Se Hee, and more. With all this growth in K-drama land, it also increases the paychecks for the leads and is expected to continue with the seeking of lead roles.
