'Producer' Releases The First Episode Preview

'Producer' Releases The First Episode Preview

(Photo : KBS) Kim Soo Hyun is a bumbling rookie in the preview for the first episode of "Producer." The video opens with the actor, who exuded confidence in "My Love from the Star," haplessly stumbling into what appears to be a production meeting. He draws upon his comedic timing as Baek Seung Chan, an intrepid producer-director, who abandoned a career as a prosecutor. His departure from the seriousness of Do Min Joon harkens to his earnest portrayal of a country bumpkin in "Dream High." Perhaps, this juxtaposition of characters is due to the contributions of screenwriter Park Ji Eun, whose previous works include "My Love from the Star."

Cha Tae Hyun appears confident as Ra Joon Mo, a seasoned producer, who has worked within the industry for a decade. Unfortunately, none of his projects have developed into a hit.

One of the most interesting relationship dynamics in the preview is the friction demonstrated between Gong Hyo Jin and IU. Gong Hyo Jin portrays Tak Ye Ji, a "Music Bank" producer. In the footage, Ye Ji appears to be frustrated with the performance delivered by a K-pop idol. IU is Cindy, the former idol star who appears to carry an air of entitlement.

The preview eludes to the possibility of romance between IU and Kim Soo Hyun. As the footage concludes, the two stars have an awkward encounter on the street.

"Producer" will provide a different perspective on Korean drama. The series will be shot in the style of a docu-drama, with romantic comedy scenes interspersed with shots which resemble variety shows. "Producer" is set within the KBS building and will incorporate fictitious perspectives on television production. It will serve as the first K-Drama for variety show producer-director, Seo Soo Min. She has previously worked on "Gag Concert" and "2 Days, 1 Night." She is also the primary producer of KBS" competitive Happy Sunday variety show programming.

"Producer" premieres on May 15. The series will air on KBS on Fridays and Saturdays in the 9:15 KST time slot.


"SIXTEEN" competitors show their dance moves and tears in preview for first episode

JYP Entertainment released the first preview for their new survival competitive program, "SIXTEEN," featuring a ton of talented trainees who will fight it out to become the new girl group, Twice.

The preview shows the girls working hard and impressing with their dance moves while other JYP artists show up in interviews. Yenny says, "This is not like JYP," and Suzy says, "It"s scary."

It does seem a bit different from the color of JYP Entertainment, but there"s no doubt that the show will draw in a crowd--especially because seeing sixteen girls dancing in unison does look pretty impressive! J.Y. Park says he"s looking for a girl group that will not only show the color of the agency but also advance it one step further.

What are your thoughts on the first episode preview?

[HanCinema"s Drama Preview] "Ex-Girlfriends" Club"

Romantic comedy in Korean drama most often deals with budding relationships. The draw is the idea that two strangers meet, fall in love and this love is what entertains viewers. Even if those characters are connected in their childhood or by fate, which are popular tropes. However, some shows also deal with love beyond the original attraction and also rekindled love. "Ex-Girlfriends" Club" appears to belong in the latter category.


Bang Myeong-soo (Byeon Yo-han) is a webtoon artist who uses his romantic past in his latest work. When the work gets the opportunity to be made into a film, Myeong-soo"s choice to speak about his ex-girlfriends in it proves unwise. All of the women are somehow related to the project, including producer Kim Soo-jin (Song Ji-hyo), who needs to make the film happen in a very charged environment.

The Worrying

Premise Appeal

Teasing with different pairings and keeping a steady main one is how most series keep the interest of fans, but having only one man and a few women he has already been in relationships with might not match the more fairytale style romance a lot of viewers love. A more progressive take on relationships is automatically a less idealized one and it might appeal less.

Lack of Hype and Simple Promotion

With the series out next week, there is not much going on with its promotion. There are basics out, a few teasers, a highlight video, some stills, but nowhere near the amount usually found for bigger shows. When the channel does not show much involvement with a work, it is a worrying factor. If there are problems down the road, will the channel stick by its aired series or does this lack of good promotion indicate lack of conviction?

The Reassuring

Promising Cast

Song Ji-hyo and Lee Yoon-ji are both actresses with over ten years in their career and many notable works. They can be trusted to deliver what a show needs. Additionally, Byeon Yo-han has impressed through his movie works and the hit drama "Incomplete Life". At a time when questionable casting decisions is a problem, this is an encouraging selection of main actors.

Down to Earth Story

Complicated stories full of attention-grabbing tropes are popular and they usually do well in terms of ratings. However, they can also end up meandering for the sake of keeping things interesting. A more approachable story about regular people leading normal lives might not always get wide attention, but it leaves room for its fewer elements to be explored properly. If the show"s plot realizes the potential of its premise, it would be a refreshing change from the usual drama.

Final Thoughts

Stories of past romances, potential cat-fights and finding an old love are not everyone"s cup of tea. "Ex-Girlfriends" Club" can easily go down a boring path or even worse, resort to cheap tricks to enhance its more realistic premise. With a good cast and assuming it keeps its plot on a stable path and messages clear, it might become a really nice show about the struggles of dating life.

"Ex-Girlfriends" Club" begins its run on May 8th and will air every Friday and Saturday at 20:30, on tvN.
