Carefree twentysomethings of idol variety-drama The Best Hit
Behind-the-scenes stills from the poster photoshoot for variety-drama hybrid The Best Hit have been released. Comedic actor Cha Tae-hyun (The Producers) will be co-directing this youth-centric drama alongside his longtime colleague and friend 1 Night 2 Days PD Yoo Ho-jin. The main trio starring in this new project include another 1N2D alum Yoon Shi-yoon (Mirror of the Witch), Kim Min-jae (The Lonely Shining Goblin), and Lee Se-young (Laurel Tree Tailors).
The story is about how young people in their twenties navigate the difficulties of life, relationships, and careers. Yoon Shi-yoon stars as a famous musician whose reputation goes down the tubes due to several unfortunate incidents. Kim Min-jae will be a model student who hides the fact that he’s secretly an idol trainee, and Lee Se-young plays an optimistic civil service exam student who has already failed three times.
The other budding idol-actors on the cast include Dong Hyun-bae (aka Taeyang’s older bro), ASTRO’s Cha Eun-woo, and Cosmic Girl’s Bona, who are shown in the still cut above. Cha Eun-woo’s character is a top star, and has the outfit to match that diva personality in the stills. Dong Hyun-bae plays a musician, while Bona plays a haughty idol trainee. Rounding out the rest of the secondary characters are Yoon Son-ha (Six Flying Dragons) and singer Hong Kyung-min (Sing For You).
While I’m not entirely too sure about where the plot will take us, I love that they’re trying out this hybrid format again, and hopefully this time (unlike The Producers), it’ll be a bigger success. KBS Friday-Saturday variety-drama The Best Hit will premiere on June 2.
