At an event held in Hongdae on April 10, singer-actress IU shared her thoughts on upcoming KBS 2TV drama “Producer,” in which she will star alongside top actors Kim Soo Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, and Cha Tae Hyun.
IU said, “It’s really an honor. For one, the script is really entertaining, and it’s exciting to be able to work with such accomplished people. We are currently filming well.”
She continued, “I think I will be able to show a new side of myself that I haven’t in the dramas I’ve done so far.”
In “Producer,” IU will depict a famous celebrity who is cynical and standoffish, having started in the industry at a young age and having witnessed how backstabbing people can be.
The singer-actress shared how her role will be a means to satisfy her longing to do music, “I sing in the drama as well. Through that, I’ll be able to quench some of my thirst [for my new album]. While the part isn’t really big, I’m working very hard so that it will be [a] fun [drama].”
“Producer” is set to premiere in early May.
