KBS upcoming drama “Producer” casting news


Last week there’s news that scriptwriter Park Ji Eun (You Who Came from the Stars, My Husband’s Got a Family) will most likely be reunited with YWCFTS actor Kim Soo Hyun. It’s no longer a huge surprise for a writer to team up with their actor after a very successful drama, though I hope they’ll give another actor a chance. But if s/he is comfortable working with a particular actor, then we can’t say anything, can we? Kim Soo Hyun has yet to accept the offer.

Few days later, actor Cha Tae Hyun‘s confirmed as the hero’s veteran variety producer. Love him in variety and dramaland. He can use his variety experience to portray 10 years variety show PD who unfortunately still doesn’t have a successful project under his belt.

And today, the casting news about the actress surfaced. IU has been offered the role as ice princess top star singer. KBS loves her, she has 3 KBS dramas (Dream High, You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin & Pretty Man) and this role is perfect for her. Will she get reunited with Song Sam Dong? Let’s wait for the official confirmations from Loen & KeyEast.

There’s a rumor that (another) lead actress will be cast as as a singer who’s also a variety PD. If that’s the case, maybe we’ll have two OTPs? Rookie variety PD & ice princess celebrity and veteran PD & singer variety PD?

#Update: Gong Hyo Jin has received the offer to play the variety PD. We’ll have two OTPs like You’re All Surrounded last year. I love this.

This drama will be directed by former Gag Concert PD (currently Happy Sunday’s Executive Producer) PD Seo Soo Min and will be set in TV’s variety world. About the broadcast time, they are contemplating to try Friday & Saturday timeslot (usually dominated with tvN drama & the ratings hit PD Na Young Suk’s variety show) and JTBC drama. It’s expected filming will begin as soon as the casting wraps up.
