After initial reports that both IU and Gong Hyo Jin were in talks to join the cast of the upcoming KBS drama Producer, Star News has reported that both have finalized discussions and agreed to appear in the drama.
With a cast that already included actors Kim Soo Hyun and Cha Tae Hyun, Producer‘s now star-studded cast is definitely catching the eye of K-drama fans.
Both IU and Gong Hyo Jin have had experience playing female leads in dramas in the past, with IU starring alongside Kim Soo Hyun in KBS2 drama Dream High back in 2011, as well as playing parts in KBS2 dramas You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin and Pretty Man in 2013.
Although fans of IU are elated to be able to see the singer act as a female lead in another drama, initial rumors that the singer would be making a comeback soon can now be laid to rest. With that in mind, Uaenas should still be excited for IU, as she is going to be acting alongside a very impressive set of co-stars.
Producer is said to be a hybrid drama with the essence of a variety show and drama mixed together. With such an impressive cast line-up, the chemistry between all the actors and actresses is sure to be something to look forward to!
