Park Kyu-young returns from her grave in Netflix’s Celebrity

The first promos have dropped for Netflix’s new mystery-noir series Celebrity, showcasing the glitzy and glamorous world of fame – in addition to the shadowy corners hidden in plain sight.

In this story, Park Kyu-young (Dal-li and Gamjatang) stars as Seo Ah-ri, a social media influencer who goes viral overnight. Opening with her grand entrance through the crowd of flashing cameras, the teaser also shows us how influencers film videos and livestreams, promoting (and selling) products to their eagerly watching fanbase.

We then return to our mysterious heroine who poses the question of how she became a celebrity, even getting noticed by the notorious workaholic and cosmetics CEO Kang Min-hyuk (Oh! Master). In contrast, Ah-ri’s new rise to fame is a terrible shock for her old school friend – and fellow influencer – Jeon Hyo-sung (Memorist) as well as the cultural foundation chairwoman Lee Chung-ah (One Dollar Lawyer).

As the sequence soon reveals, Ah-ri was supposedly dead. The speculation then grows on what, how, and why, and head lawyer Lee Dong-gun (Leverage) needs some time to process the information overload. With a brief glimpse of a sudden car accident, Ah-ri reveals the truth, which we also read in the poster’s tagline: “I was murdered by my follower.”

The teaser then closes on a moment in the past when Ah-ri had posed for a group photo with other influencers, looking chummy for the camera but quickly dispersing once the shoot is done.

Written by Kim Yi-young (Haechi) with PD Kim Chul-kyu (Flower of Evil) at the helm, Netflix’s 12-episode series Celebrity will be releasing on June 30.

I just hope there's an element of revenge in this one. Revenge is a complex motivation that has rarely been explored in kdramas.

It has come to my attention now that I've had breakfast that you are obviously being sarcastic.
But I truly read this straight for like 30 seconds, didn't connect it to the above comment, and flailed lmfao.

Poor Sic, posting on the internet first thing is always a gamble.

It's understandable, as @hacja rarely uses irony.

You know, if you hadn't said anything I would have thought you were joking as well! I was going to respond with something about the surfeit of serial killers.

I agree 100%. There isn't nearly enough revenge in kdramas. More revenge!

It's finally here! It's been more than a year they filmed it.

I'm really excited to watch Park Kyu-Young, Lee Chung-Ah and Kang Min-Hyuk together.

I think this is usually true of the dramas Netflix actually makes themselves. I noticed how much longer Esom's hair was in the premiere photos compared to the actual footage of Black Knight and it really reinforced that. Netflix is just not on the breakneck schedule that most other dramas are on. For better or worse.

I can understand for a show like Black Knight because they had a lot of postproduction to do but for Celebrity I don't know... Maybe they wanted to wait after Fabulous that was released later because of the incident.

My brain, reaching into its stored memory bank after watching this trailer, "wait this reminds me of something...":

"had a dream (more like a prophetic vision) that there was a terminally ill youtuber who recorded a few months of content ahead of time to release after they died where they would occasionally casually reference the fact that they are dead, including a video talking about their actual real death complete with pictures. whole thing is kept cool and casual, no mourning or sadness just the usual "hey guys! guess who died today ðŸĪŠ" stuff.

they managed to get early copies of some upcoming video games so they could post timely reviews and everything, still keeping up the whole "actually died recently" bit. they were still just like normal ass reviews, sometimes they'd drop a "wow this game is so bad I'm glad I died three weeks ago" or some similar joke.

the channel became super popular after he died and "deadtubing" became a trend but there was a huge scandal when one of the most popular deadtubers was revealed as actually being alive."

All I would say is I'm really excited for this!
I don't want to put too much expectations so I won't be disappointed but the plot seems good and the cast especially the female lead is so good at acting. I just really hope it comes out good.
