After gaining attention for confirming actors Kim Soo Hyun and Cha Tae Hyun as part of its cast, upcoming KBS drama Producer made headlines once again for having negotiations with singing sensation IU.
Although nothing has been confirmed regarding IUs casting or her potential role, Daily Sports confirmed that the singer has in fact met with the producers of Producer and have begun talks to star in the drama.
Producer is said to be a hybrid drama with the essence of a variety show and drama mixed together.
Despite being known as one of Korea’s top singers, IU has also had experience acting in the past. In fact, the singer co-starred alongside one of her potential castmates, as both IU and Kim Soo Hyun starred in KBS2 drama Dream High back in 2011. In addition to Dream High, IU has also taken on lead actress roles with KBS2 dramas You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin and Pretty Man in 2013.
The drama is expected to air its pilot episode on April 17th at 11PM KST, with episodes airing weekly on Friday and Saturday evenings.
