Gong Hyo Jin and IU have been confirmed as the heroines. According to KBS officials on 9 March 2015, Gong Hyo Jin and IU have decided to appear in the upcoming KBS drama Producer, Gong Hyo Jin is a music show PD while IU is ice princess top singer.
They join Cha Tae Hyun who previously finalized his appearance. Although many news outlets stated Kim Soo Hyun has accepted the offer, but his appearance is still being coordinated. I guess we’ll hear the official statement from KeyEast soon.
Producer is written by You Who Came from the Stars, My Husband Got a Family & Queen of Reversal writer Park Ji Eun and directed by Happy Sunday (1n2d & Superman is Back) CP PD Seo Soo Min.
It’s set to premiere on 17 April 2015 on KBS, will be broadcast every Friday & Saturday 23:00PM KST. That timeslot gives them a slight advantage because there’s no strong competitors. JTBC drama Maids & tvN Friday variety show start 21:45PM & 21:40PM. MBC & SBS Weekend drama start 22:00PM.
They plan to finish casting soon and will start filming soon.
