KBS released the first on-set photo from the highly anticipated drama, “Producers.” A photo posted to the KBS Weibo account on April 2 depicts Kim Soo Hyun in business attire. “Producers” is within the high-paced setting of a drama production studio. The series is being filmed within a wing of the KBS studios location in Yeouido.
The show features a star-studded cast in addition to Kim Soo Hyun, including Gong Hyo Jin, IU, Cha Tae Hyun and Kim Jong Kook.
Kim Soo Hyun leads the cast as Baek Seung Chan, a fledgling entertainment producer who initially aspired to become a prosecutor. While his current position is more glamorous, it will be interesting to see if his dreams of law enforcement will work their way into his approach of the entertainment industry.
Gong Hyo Jin portrays Tak Ye Ji, a veteran music television producer, whose experience is on-par with Ra Joo Mo (Cha Tae Hyun). Cha Tae Hyun will undoubtedly add friction to plot as one of the most experienced producers in the entertainment department.
Variety star Kim Jong Kook will portray Kim Hong Soon, another entertainment producer.
IU will channel her personal experiences as a young entertainer to portray Cindy, a pop idol whose career was launched during childhood. She is characterized by her robotic personality and is considered to be an ice queen.
“Producers” benefits from the creativity of screenwriter Park Ji Eun, who wowed audiences with “My Love from the Star.” Producer Seo Soo Min, who has extensive experience in the variety program sector is also at the helm of the project.
“Producers” is currently in production and is scheduled to premiere on May 8 on KBS in the 9 p.m. time slot.
