Singer and entertainer Kim Jong Kook will be taking on his first drama challenge with the anticipated and upcoming KBS drama Producer.
According to a drama official on March 20th to Daily Sports, “Kim Jong Kook has confirmed his appearance in the new entertainment KBS drama ‘Producer.’ He is currently in China attending to other schedules, but will be attending next week’s script reading. This is the first drama Kim Jong Kook will appear in since debuting in Turbo.”
Kim Jong Kook will play the variety show PD senior to Cha Tae Hyun‘s character, who himself is veteran PD with 10-year experience. Of course, in real life, Kim Jong Kook and Cha Tae Hyun are known to be the best of friends, which may have put a hand in the singer and Running Man star to join the cast.
Other actors confirmed for the hybrid variety-drama show include Kim Soo Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, and IU, and the project will be headed by Seo Soo Min PD, who leads variety shows 1 Night 2 Days and Gag Concert.
Producer is set to air at the end of April to beginning of May at the Friday-Saturday 11PM KST timeslot.
