Parties, playing, promos, and posters for Entourage

Character posters are out for all five leads of tvN’s hotly anticipated remake of the HBO series Entourage, along with teasers of the remaining groupie members: Lee Dong-hwi (Answer Me 1988), Lee Kwang-soo (Dear My Friends), and Park Jung-min (You’re All Surrounded).

Entourage is the story of rising star Young-bin, played by Seo Kang-joon (Cheese in the Trap) and the four men (boys) always in his orbit, making up his titular entourage and tagging along for the romp around town in the glitzy and dramatic milieu of entertainment. Members of the entourage include the power agent played by Jo Jin-woong (Signal), the 24/7 on-call manager questioning his career choice played by Park Jung-min, the has-been actor struggling to reclaim his former glory played by Lee Kwang-soo, and the goofy friend who has nothing better to do played by Lee Dong-hwi.

The group poster features all five boys casually chilling on the couch. There’s pizza on the table before them, and empty soda cans and champagne bottles strewn about. They’re in good spirits, and the poster’s punny copy plays on the Korean word for “star”: “The bizarre [star] guys whose lives revolve around another [star] guy.”

Meanwhile, in the individual posters, temperamental agent Jo Jin-woong is looking rather suave and as smooth as the glass of whiskey he has in his hand. His copy is his M.O.: “After making him a real star, turning him into a real actor is my strategy. Punk!”

Seo Kang-joon is fresh-faced and handsome as the guy who has it all. His catchphrase: “Enjoying life to the fullest. That’s what’s going to improve my acting, know what I mean?”

Lee Kwang-soo, the former idol star, works his bicep with a kettle bell in the air. His line reads, “During my heyday, I was on the same level as H.O.T. and Sechs Kies, okay?” The highlight of his teaser, above, is when he jumps up in the middle of a movie screening to yell, “What! My lines got cut!”

Park Jung-min, the level-headed and serious one, parses through a script. Keeping him company are alcohol and cigarettes. His copy reads, “I’m not sure if I’m working as a manager, or if I’m just cleaning up after a friend’s mess.” In his teaser (below), he’s shown working hard, and is told, “You’re a good manager.” Then he’s asked, “Instead of just running around after [him], how about you try being a real manager?”

Last but not least, Lee Dong-hwi, the “guy who just plays,” is seen, well, just playing. He’s got a keyboard on his lap, a candy bar in his mouth, and his room is chock full of junk food. His copy reads, “I’m not unemployed. I drive Young-bin around and accompany him! Right?” In his teaser, he insists over the phone to his mother that he’s totally busy working and not just goofing off, all the while he’s totally goofing off as part of Young-bin’s entourage.

Despite the posters appearing overly saturated colorwise, they do a good job of conveying the personalities of the main cast; I already have a grasp of who they are and what role they play, in addition to their respective concerns, however first-world they may be. The hype is tangibly high, and I’d be lying if I said my expectations weren’t high as well. I’ll wish on my lucky stars for this star-studded brofest to deliver!

tvN’s Entourage will premiere on November 4 and air on Fridays and Saturdays.

Oh Kwang Soo I love you but Yoo Jae suk and the others are right. You look old.
Here for some reason I don't know he looks older than his age.

And I am a huge Kwang Soo fan this show isn't the genre I like to watch but for him I will.

On another note for double standards, its okay for a guy too look super old but when a woman looks her age or a little older she is treated poorly or made fun of.

Like women are expected to look way younger than their age and still the industry still prefers barely legal girls.

Even their weight has to be super skinny. But a man can be average or a little chubby and its okay.

And truthfully it gets boring seeing the same shape in women. I like seeing all shapes and sizes.
It feels more real other than they made all actress bodies from the same rubber mold.

Complete double standards.

And Seo Kang Joon man yours eyes melted me and that smile. Stop it's like I am being hypnotized.

In the og entourage, Lee Kwang Soo's character, Johnny Drama was a lot older than his cousin and his friends. He was someone who was experienced in the acting industry, but he struggled get back to his glory days. I doubt Kwang Soo was picked for his older looks, but it could work in his favor.

Kwang-soo seems very much like... Kwang-soo? ^_^ His character here is like an extreme version of his Running Man perpetual joke about his "rivalry" with Song Joong-ki. Seeing Jo Jin-woong & Seo Kang-joon poster copy, will the show be poking fun on Seo Kang-joon's acting ability? That's a brave move for him, remembering the CITT fiasco... Seconding chickachunga in hoping the "star-studded brofest to deliver!"
