Yoo Jae Suk is known for his support of fellow comedians, and Kim Jae Dong revealed his own uplifting experience.
On the episode of JTBC’s “Talk to You” aired on May 24, the conversation theme is “choices.”
During the show, one of the audience members confesses that she quit her job and is currently studying with her husband to pursue what she really enjoys because life is too long to compromise for anything else. Though both of them have no income, the husband respects his wife’s dreams.
According to recent reports, almost half of the production costs for KBS‘s recent hit drama “Producer” is being covered by advertising within the show. The demand among advertisers for screen time is largely attributed to the star power of the show’s leads, Kim Soo Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, IU, and Cha Tae Hyun.
However, the show has come under fire for what some describe as distracting and excessive product placement. An editorial in the newspaper Ilgan Sports from May 24 exemplifies some of the recent criticism.
I don"t know what happened to Doo-jin"s decision to go after Ma-ri. I wasn"t sure what he was doing in this episode really. Maybe that will be cleared up next episode. I also don"t much care for Mo-ran"s illness. She"ll probably die, but I don"t really think that"s the point of her character. I think she is the personification of forgiveness.And onto the last episode!Written by: Raine from "Raine"s Dichotomy"

Having acted in many roles, Lee Jong Suk shared that he enjoys living the life of someone else.
In a recent photo shoot with fashion magazine, Allure Korea, Lee Jong Suk traveled to the tropical islands of Hawaii to capture gorgeous photos for the June issue.
During the interview, Lee Jong Suk shared, “When I’m filming, yes, it is very hard, but when I watch the broadcast, there’s this strange, refreshing feeling. The life of Lee Jong Suk is quite boring, but I spend a very meaningful day becoming a drama character that isn′t me. I think I find vicarious satisfaction in that.”
"One of the reasons why the resting period of an actor gets longer is because there’s a big fear that we’ll lose something that we have in the present. But as you start comparing this and that, the time that passes by disappears. If it’s like that, I think it’s better to just have my present self be shown in projects.”
Despite initial concern about mixed reviews from critics, an increasing number of viewers in Korea are tuning in to watch KBS‘s latest drama “Producer.”
According to Nielsen Korea, the fourth episode of the show was watched by 11 percent of viewers across Korea, which is the highest rating for the show so far. It’s also a 0.8 percent jump from the third episode’s 10.2 percent rating!
The show was highly anticipated before its first episode aired because of its unique premise and top star cast, which includes beloved actors Kim Soo Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, IU, and Cha Tae Hyun. Although there was some criticism over the slow pace of the show’s first episodes, it seems that the show is becoming increasingly popular after a directorial switch in the third episode.
