The Producers: Episode 2
by | May 16, 2015 | 209 Comments
Oh man, I love this show. The deadpan humor is so on the money, and it makes me appreciate this writer in a totally different way than I did during You From Another Star. It’s the complete opposite drama in every way—wry, cynical, so realistic it makes my insides cringe—but even though the embarrassment is... More »

The Producers: Episode 1
by | May 15, 2015 | 143 Comments
The veil finally lifts on KBS’s hyped experimental-format variety-drama The Producers, and I’m happy to report that it’s great. I was afraid it wouldn’t live up to its hype (since there was ever so much of it), but the show delivers, and I’m pleased. One of the show’s big selling points was the incorporation of... More »

Smiles and scowls at press conference for The Producers
by | May 11, 2015 | 68 Comments
May 11 was press conference day for KBS’s The Producers, the “100% real variety drama” starring star actors playing variety producer-directors (and one starlet) in a show that’ll be both a workplace drama and an extravaganza of meta nods to the world it depicts. Unlike most dramaland shows about showbiz that invent a fictional world... More »

Producer’s playful partner-go-round posters
by | April 29, 2015 | 62 Comments
I’m kinda promo-ed out with Producer, even though I really am looking forward to the show. Mostly I just want it to hurry up and air already, so that we find out just what exactly this “real variety drama” looks like. I suspect it looks a lot like a regular drama that just happens to... More »

Petty jealousy revs up on Producer’s morning commute

I thought they’d be playing up Cha Tae-hyun’s 1 Night 2 Days connection in the first teaser for KBS’s new showbiz drama Producer, but I like this light and fun conceptual teaser a lot — it doesn’t show any scenes from the drama to come, but we get a cute introduction to all four leads... More »

Cha Tae-hyun goes behind the 1N2D camera for Producer
by | April 16, 2015 | 52 Comments
After watching Cha Tae-hyun (The Con Artists, Jeon Woo-chi) on the cast-member side of variety programming in 1 Night 2 Days, constantly being thwarted by fate (by which I mean producers who engineered his fate, of course), it’ll be a fun turnaround to see him playing a producer for that very show on his upcoming...

I’m really looking forward to KBS’s spring lineup, which will bring us the teen coming-of-age drama Who Are You–School 2015 on Mondays and Tuesdays, and the industry insider drama Producer on Fridays and Saturdays. Both shows held their script reads to launch production, with about a month left before premieres roll around. The two dramas... More »

Okay, this is going to be hysterical. Real-life friends Kim Jong-kook and Cha Tae-hyun in a drama together? But who will make them behave? After twenty years in the industry as a singer and variety star, Kim Jong-kook (Running Man) will finally be making his acting debut in Cha Tae-hyun’s new drama Producer, about variety... More »

by | March 2, 2015 | 184 Comments
I love it. This drama is doing so many things right, and it’s not even on the air yet. Producer, the new KBS drama from the writer of You From Another Star, is courting Gong Hyo-jin (It’s Okay, It’s Love) to complete the leading cast. If she signs on, she’ll play opposite Cha Tae-hyun, which... More »

Cha Tae-hyun to play veteran variety PD to Kim Soo-hyun’s rookie
by | February 28, 2015 | 120 Comments
OH. I like this. I like it a lot. KBS’s new drama Producer isn’t settling for one male lead, because why have one when you can have two? Right on the heels of announcing Kim Soo-hyun’s potential reunion with the writer of You From Another Star in her newest drama, Cha Tae-hyun (Jeon Woo-chi) has... More »
