Lee Seo-jin Yoon Yo-jung manager has been promoted
Actors Lee Seo-jin, Kwak Sun-young, Seo Hyun-woo, and Joo Hyun-young will appear in tvN’s new drama “Surviving as a Celebrity Manager.”
tvN’s new drama “Surviving as a Celebrity Manager” (directed by Baek Seung-ryong/playwright Park So-young and Lee Chan) is a hard-core job keeper for celebrity managers who are professional and amateur in life. The work, love, and desire of people who are only “amateurs” in their lives, who work with Korea’s top stars, will be realistically unfolded against the backdrop of “Method Entertainment,” a large entertainment management company.
Surviving as a Celebrity Manager is a remake of the original French film of the same name, which has established itself as a national drama with the highest ratings, and is drawing global attention after its production was confirmed in Korea.
Director Baek Seung-ryong, who penetrated the public’s fun points through “SNL Korea” and “Cheap Chunri Mama Mart,” was in charge of directing a unique and fresh world of directing. In addition, writer Park So-young, who encompasses various genres such as “Mellowholic” and “I Don’t Want to Go to Work,” will be the main writer, and the writers who were active in entertainment programs will join the team to capture both fun and empathy.
On top of that, Lee Seo-jin, Kwak Sun-young, Seo Hyun-woo, and Joo Hyun-young will unite as four managers of “Method Entertainment.”
Lee Seo-jin, who played as a “head manager” on tvN’s “Unexpected Journey,” which ended on the 5th, will return as a professional manager from a prestigious university’s business department. He plays Mataeo, the general manager of Method Entertainment. Tae-oh is a natural strategist who has gentleness and intelligence, but does not mind all kinds of tricks to achieve what he wants. Lee Seo-jin, who succeeded in transforming into a bald physician in the original TVing “Park Director of Internal Medicine,” returned to coolness this time and played a role in predicting 100% character synchronization, raising expectations.
Kwak Sun-young, who returned to tvN for the first time in about a year since “Wise Doctor Life Season 2,” plays “Cheon Je-in,” a 14-year-old manager who started as a field manager and even became a team leader. Jane, a highly competitive workaholic, is a proud manager. Once the goal is set, he is hot-tempered and does not measure back and forth, so he encounters Tae-oh in various work methods.
Seo Hyun-woo, who is receiving love calls on various stages such as dramas, movies, and performances with his perfect character digestibility, played the role of Jane’s best friend, another team manager, and Kim Joong-don. Jung-don is not good at saying bad things to others, and he hates even causing harm. Unlike Tae-oh, who thinks of actors as a means of success, he works based on strong trust with the stars in charge and pursues stability rather than challenge. Seo Hyun-woo, who performed impressive passionate acts in the dramas “My Mister,” “The Flower of Evil,” and the movie “The Bosses of Namsan,” is drawing attention to what kind of character he will create this time by playing a soft and good role.
Finally, Joo Hyun-young, who quickly emerged as a popular actor by describing the intern “Ju Ji-ja” realistically with detailed expression in “SNL Korea Reboot Season 1,” played the role of So Hyun-joo, a new manager. Hyun-joo, who has longed for the entertainment industry since she was young, has come to Seoul with difficulty and takes the first step. He is clumsy at work and unintentionally causes mistakes and accidents, but he grows into a professional manager with a young sense, an open mind, and natural patience and responsibility. Joo Hyun-young’s meticulous acting, which will create another history of growth for the first time in society, is more expected.
The production team said, “Actors Lee Seo-jin, Kwak Sun-young, Seo Hyun-woo, and Joo Hyun-young, who play any role deliciously, are giving real vitality to the characters in the work based on their solid experiences in the industry. Through people struggling to make the best stars, we will come back with our stories of doing our best in each place without taking care of their lives,” he said. “Through the original work, it will be fun to meet the stars of each new episode. Please look forward to it.”
Surviving as a Celebrity Manager will air later this year
