THE PRODUCERS. KBS 2.

the producers

javabeans@dramabeans:

“The first episode was a bit slow in plot, because boy was there a dense thicket of setup and KBS-related references taking up a lot of time.(…). At least the writing was funny, to keep them moving along with a steady stream of jokes”.

“A little disjointed at first, but halfway through the first part of episode 1 you get into the groove of things”.

anna@drama for real:

“Filmed as a mockumentary that’s popular with Western TV shows, it’s the first time I’ve seen an Asian drama take on this style. And I love it!”.

rachel@seoulbeats:

“By episode three, the drama went in a different direction. It’s still funny, but it has dropped most of the documentary façade”.

kdramarecaps@kdramarecaps:

” YeJin (Kong Hyo-Jin) is the producer of music program “Music Bank.” A rookie  SungChan (Kim Soo-Hyun) parks too close and she dents his car by opening her door carelessly”.

julia and tania@julia and tania blog:

“We find The Producers entertaining so far. We like that this series has the style of the UK/American series, The Office. Just like The Office, the characters sometimes talk directly to the camera as they reveal their thoughts and feelings and make comments on the things happening around them”.

chunkeemonkeeato@musings of a chunkeemonkeeato:

“(…) I do think that unless viewers have a good knowledge of Korean variety shows, the casual watcher might struggle to find what makes this drama brilliant”.

Series review

angela@funcurve:

 I must admit Producer felt underwhelming compared to what I had hoped for. But with unconventional cinematography, top-notch acting, and endless star cameos, it’s still a drama worth your time“.

Series review

dramalandloverj@the talking cupboard:

Producers had its fair share of good and bad but overall a very nice picture was drawn about the reality  of the variety world in South Korea”.

Series review

jaysleenjames@kimchi achaar:

” The ending certainly left me satisfied surprisingly”.

Series review

jediprincess@abby in hallyu-land:

“The engrossing 12 episodes will leave you lessons that basic self-help books have already vaguely discussed.  A breather from rom-com and melodramas, Producers will strip any work related stress you are having if you give it a chance”.

Series review

purplebass@purplebass world:

“Who I would suggest this to? To who loves to see what is done behind the scenes of a program”.

Series review

cali@diary of a k-drama addict:

“The drama is really long, each episode is 80 minutes and it was pointed out that that is the length of variety shows so that may be why they decided to add time to each episode”.

First impressions

mslee1107@wandering thoughts:

“Did I enjoy the first 2 episodes? Honestly, yes”.

Episode 12 (finale)   Episode 11   Episode 10   Episode 09   Episode 08   Episode 07   Episode 06   Episode 05   Episode 04   Episode 03   Episodes 01 & 02

clockwatcher@couch kimchi:

“I’m enjoying it. I found the 70+ minutes per episode hard to sit through the first week but I barely noticed the time pass this week and wanted more when the episode ended”.

Episodes 11 & 12 (finale)   Episodes 09 & 10   Episodes 07 & 08   Episodes 05 & 06   Episodes 01 to 04

kjtamuser@amusings:

“Overall I like the show, I like the characters, I look forward to our junior characters getting more personality as the show progresses”.

Episodes 11 & 12 (finale)   Episodes 07 to 10   Episodes 01 to 06

ratletattle@rattle tattle:

“Seeing the rarity of finding and watching a show with great ending, you guess how exhilarated i’d be when i do come across one. And i’ll gladly announce that Producer‘s is one of those rare gems”.

Series review

kfangurl@the fan girl verdict:

“Warm slice-of-life goodness, despite its early-episode identity crisis”.

Series review

professor akia@akiatalking:

Producers (…) has a terrible character played by  Kim Soo-Hyun  / 김수현. He is passive and a huge moron to the degree that I sometimes think he is mentally retarded on the level of “Forrest Gump” (1994)”.

Episodes 01 & 02

kaede jun@kaede+jun:

“There was little that I liked, but I really appreciated how different this drama was from our other usual behind-the-scenes dramas”. 

Series review   Episodes 01 & 02

kay@kdramakisses:

“I would definitely recommend this drama for rom com lovers.  Get through the first couple episodes, and then sit back and enjoy the fun”.

Series review

leejin@leejin’s drama corner:

“(…) when I actually sat down to watch the whole episode, it felt like as though I sat through a 3 hour show. It felt that slow”.

First impressions

andrea@it started with a drama:

” The humor will not appeal to everyone, but even with all of that pointed out, it’s still not a bad start. It’s just different, and upon a second re-watch, it feels that it’s at least got enough potential to really blossom into something great.”

Episode 03   Episodes 01 & 02

kooriyuki@nekosdrama:

I find Producers quite an eye-opener to how South Korean TV works, and I can’t wait for more real life anecdotes amidst the drama (the four-way loveline among our main cast!)”.

Series review   Episodes 01 to 08   First impressions

india@dramadebussie:

“Like I said, so far I like this show. I would speed up the pace a smidge which is something it can easily do seeing that it has a shorter run than most dramas, but I can see all the potential that it’s rich with”.

Series review   Episodes 03 & 04   Episodes 01 & 02

charmedangeI8@crazy about asian dramas:

Producer is scheduled to have 12 episodes and we are introduced to four characters and I think the main question is, “will they or won’t they or will it be them?””.

Series review   Episodes 01 to 04

ninja@ninja reflection:

“Anyhow, I am still planning to at least give The Producers another week and crossing my fingers that the second try would be better than the first”.

Episodes 01 & 02

admin@korean drama fashion:

“It’s really reassuring to find Gong Hyo Jin’s eclectic style in this drama. In every drama she’s in, her stylists always manage to inject some of her real style without compromising her character”.

Episode 10   Episode 09   Episode 08   Episode 07   Episode 06   Episode 05   Episode 04   Episode 03   Episode 02   Episode 01

snow@the drama corner:

“For now, The Producers is turning out to be a funny, zippy workplace drama with hilarious characters”.

Series review   First impressions

the world at my fingertips@the k-addict:

“My only concern about this drama was watching I.U. play a ‘ice princess’ since her acting was awkward and watching her act as an awkward ducking was well…awkward“.

First impressions

orion@hancinema:

“‘The production for “Producers” has already started backpedaling on its experimental nature and has announced plans for more romance and a more typical approach. (…) There are certainly elements in need of improvement here, but there is also a lot that works”.

Series review    First impressions

picadrama@picadrama:

“I love to see all the drama going on between the PDs, celebrities, managers, etc. I am fascinated by the power struggle everyone is engaged in.”

Episode 01

akinahana89@soompi:

“Sure, I cracked a smile and even a few laughs here and there, but “Producer” didn’t live up to the expectations the drama had roused in us, even if the star-studded cast wonderfully portrayed their individual roles”.

Episodes 01 & 02

classy@drama views:

“Thank You Producer , for being all heart, fuzz and a lot of FUN!!”.
