He listed the website for the production ( and continued with a message which encouraged female actresses to audition for the female lead. "Please try to become the lead with Jang Tae Yeong," said Kim. "Goodbye, Tak Ye Jin. Goodbye Cindy."

Actress Gong Hyo Jin portrayed Tak Ye Jin in the series, while solo vocalist and actress, IU, starred as Cindy. "Producer" incorporated a love square which was resolved with Cindy forming a hot-and-cold or a relationship commonly referred to within Korean culture as "some" with Baek Seung Chan.

"Producer" concluded its 12-episode run on June 20. The series ended on a high note with ratings of 17.7 percent.

"Producer" marked the Korean entertainment return of Kim Soo Hyun, following a year-long break. While he previously gained a strong fan following for his roles in "Dream High" and the period series, "The Moon Embracing the Sun," his portrayal of alien-turned-Hallyu manager Do Min Joon in "My Love from the Star" helped to propel Kim into meteoric fame.

In addition to his upcoming film, Kim will be present at the upcoming Hallyu convention, KCON LA. "Producer" and "My Love from the Star" screenwriter Park Ji Eun will also appear at KCON LA, as part of a session called All That K-Drama with KOCCA.
