Kong Hyo-jin to appear in ‘Producers’
In the show, which centers on people making entertainment shows at a broadcasting station, Kong will play the role of a producer who’s been working in the field for 10 years.
Soloist IU has also decided to join the drama series. The singer-actress will play the role of a famous singer, just like in real life.
Kong, who recently tried her hand at acting in a theatrical play for the first time since her debut in 1999, is often dubbed the queen of romantic comedy because almost all of her previous rom-com drama series became huge hits.
The 35-year-old actress has starred in “Pasta” (2010), “The Greatest Love” (2011), “The Master’s Sun” (2013) and “It’s Okay, That’s Love” (2014).
Kong debuted in 1999 with the teenage horror film “Memento Mori.” She is one of a few actresses who receives rave reviews for her skills from viewers and critics alike. She is also dubbed a fashionista for her experimental way of layering clothes.
Along with Kong and IU, actor Cha Tae-hyun, who is currently appearing in popular reality TV show “2 Days & 1 Night” will join the drama series by taking on the role of a producer.
Actor Kim Soo-hyun of “My Love from the Star” is reportedly considering joining the drama series before he enlists in the army later this year.
Producer Seo Su-min, who took the helm of popular weekly sketch-comedy show “Gag Concert,” will participate in the drama series as a chief producer, while Park Ji-eun, who wrote “My Love from the Star,” the biggest hit drama series of last year, will pen the new program.
