I can’t believe KBS drama Producer is premiering next Friday already. I’ve liked (though not quite love) all the promos so far for the drama, introducing all four leads equally in a peppy way. Starring Cha Tae Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, Kim Soo Hyun, and IU, the arrival of Producer turns the Friday night time slot into a real slug fest as tvN also premieres the new season of popular variety show Three Meals a Day with Lee Seo Jin.
Maybe Producer can emphasize its best of both world’s combo – it’s a drama and a variety show wrapped into one. The drama revolves around PDs running various variety programs in the KBS studio, with IU as the lone non-PD as she plays a top idol singer. The network released a preview of the first episode and it doesn’t stray from the expected, the camera follows the characters as they prepare, confer, and execute various variety shows. The four leads are bringing the charisma and intensity right off the bat so thumbs up for that.
