Ji Sung (Kill Me, Heal Me) has confirmed he will star in the new SBS drama Entertainer (Ddanddara). Entertainer is about a manager who was once in charge of the top entertainment agency in Korea, but now represents rookies in his own small agency. As a group of rag-tag musicians is assembled, he learns what it really means to be a manager. Ji Sung will play our manager.
I love warm-hearted, underdog stories, and this drama fits that perfectly. I’m more than thrilled with Ji Sung as the lead and can already picture him as this character. I’m so glad he’s coming back to our screens!
An offer is out to Hyeri (Reply 1988) for the leading lady role of a young woman who becomes part of the band and has a relationship with the manager. An offer is also out to CN Blue’s Kang Min Hyuk (Heirs) as a band member that will have a bit of a bromance with Ji Sung’s character.
Chae Jung Ahn (Yong Pal) has been confirmed to be a manager at another entertainment company. The drama comes from the writer of Pretty Man and Birdie Buddie.
Entertainer is scheduled to premiere April 20 on SBS.
