Kim Gura has previously mentioned that SM Entertainment’s drama production left a bit to be desired, but as the old saying goes, if at first you don’t succeed, then keep trying. SM Entertainment‘s non-music division, SM C&C, certainly seems to agree with this mindset with reports coming out that SM C&C is preparing to produce a new drama set to air in December. Reports are also stating that SM C&C has got some formidable staff members lined up to man this new drama.
According to reports being published on October 1, it has been revealed that SM C&C is currently producing a drama called “Miss Korea” that is set to air in December. This would be SM’s first drama in a year and a half, with their previous drama project being “To The Beautiful You.” The new drama will also bring together the staff combination from the hit MBC drama “Pasta,” with director Kwon Suk Jang (who directed ‘Pasta,” “My Princess,” and “Golden Time”) teaming up once with “Pasta” script writer Seo Sook Hyang.
There is, however, something a bit more interesting about this arrangement in that script writer Seo Sook Hyang has also acquired shares in SM C&C. SM C&C explains that while the two parties were in the process of signing a contract for her writing services, she decided to acquire shares in SM C&C as she agreed with the vision growth potential in the company, along with a desire to solidify her relationship with the company. We will be providing further details about this new project as we hear about it.
