Even more stills from King of Dramas

I’m getting a kick out of the stills for the upcoming showbiz comedy drama King of Dramas, due out in a few weeks. They feature some pretty clear character types from the get-go, and when you put them all together in one combustible drama space, it’s bound to be disastrous for them and funny for us.

Kim Myung-min stars as the Midas-touch drama producer whose pitches amount to: Dramas = Money. He’s just rockin’ the three-piece suit, the overly coiffed hair, and the smug look of self-satisfaction that screams I can turn anything into money. What I’m looking forward to is his fatal flaw, because with an ego that large, there’s gotta be an equally massive fall from grace just waiting to happen.

The conflict begins when the slick producer has to work with Jung Ryeo-won, who plays an idealistic young drama writer who also hates his guts for personal reasons. She’s all about the Art, and he’s all about the bottom line. I’m liking the easy-going look for her character — she always looks a little undone and slightly frazzled, but really natural and adorable.

And then the final part of the equation is The Star, the hot commodity actor played by Choi Siwon. He’s the diva that they have to keep happy, and though the producer and writer drive each other crazy, the star drives them both even crazier. It cracks me up that he’s always half-dressed in every still for this show; the one down below is literally the first fully-clothed shot of him I’ve seen on this set. Not that anyone’s complaining, obviously.

I think this show’s got a genius-simple recipe on its hands, though of course it rests entirely on execution to spin it into something funny. Mix together 1 Jaded Producer, 1 Idealistic Writer, 1 Diva Star. Sprinkle with a dash of meta. Stir with inappropriate feelings. Cook on high till tempers boil and kitchen explodes. That sounds tasty, right?

King of Dramas follows Faith and premieres Monday November 5 on SBS.

This drama has so much potential.
I am crossing my fingers and hope it's more comedy than tragedy.

I noticed this trend: It's the favorite room for playful flirting in the house. More than bedrooms strangely. I can't count all the backhugs or the scenes where the girl is pushed against the sink. Rawr!

I was worried about the hairstyle when he came to greet staff on the first day of filming, but figured, eh, he didnt even have a scene that day, he prolly was just lazy to do his hair. Maybe he'll have better hair in the drama. But, totes disappointed. :( hotness level downed a peg, but still hot nonetheless.

Well, we should just be thankful he still has a healthy abundance of hair on his head.

Think of the alternative: NO HAIR.

Thanks for the update. I like the premise. The actors, not really a draw for me. I'll check it out for promising plot though. Crossing fingers for something fun.

Believe that picture of Siwon was taken when he dropped by the set to say "Howdy" and give a cake to JRW. According to the terms of his contract with KoD producers, he's got to show his abs in every episode...not complaining.

At some point, there must be a parody of Siwon's acting career.

I think (and this is the only reason why I'm going to watch it) KMM is the lead.

Hopefully this one will be great because without meaning to be mean to Siwon all his previous projects were..... well I don't want this drama to be a flop. Anything with KMM in it needs to be spectacular.

Love how they dress my Master Kang!

The fully clothed Siwon picture isnt even a still from the drama. That waswhen he came to surprise the staff on the first day of filming with a cake in hand. He didnt even had a scene to film that day. He just wanted to grace the set with his perfect self. How generous of him, really.

Now if only the writer would be attracted to the diva also in a self-disgusted way. It would be pretty funny.

I gotta say anything KMM is in, I'm on it! 😍

I've loved his acting since I saw Beethoven's Virus. I forget that he is an actor when he performs. AND he is looking sharp in all the suits AND there is his famous sneer! Hehehe

“though the producer and writer drive each other crazy, the star drives them both even crazier: it's the best description of a perfect romcom, if only the director and the writers could deliver on the premise!

I LOVE YOU KIM MYUNG MIN. Actually, if it were another actor, even though the plot is undeniably the best ahhhh, I still won't watch it. Thank God for the perfect actor, Kim Myung-min.

I hope this will be a light drama, not a melodrama. Goodness, KMM knows how to choose his roles really.

*Crossing fingers for Best Actor hihihi*
