A new poster for the upcoming drama “Surviving as a Celebrity Manager” (literal translation) has been released!
Starring Lee Seo Jin, Kwak Sun Young, Seo Hyun Woo, and Joo Hyun Young, “Surviving as a Celebrity Manager” is a remake of the hit French series “Call My Agent!” The original series consists of four seasons and captures the fierce struggles of top stars and their managers in a realistic and witty way.
tvN’s remake will develop episodes that suit situations in Korea while including the strengths and interesting points of the original work. The story will showcase how pro managers working with Korea’s top stars are inevitably amateurs in their own lives as they navigate work, love, and ambition.
The new poster shows four of the managers who work at Method Entertainment looking extremely busy as some sort of filming proceeds behind them. There is Ma Tae Oh (Lee Seo Jin), Cheon Jae In (Kwak Sun Young), Kim Joong Don (Seo Hyun Woo), and So Hyun Joo (Joo Hyun Young). The phrase “I will do anything! As long as my actor is the star” stands out boldly above all of the action, encapsulating the mindset of these hard-working managers who are willing to give their all for their job.
Ma Tae Oh, the general director of Method Entertainment, stands confidently and with a dignity that can only come from being the “control tower” for the company’s operations. Then, there is team leader Cheon Jae In, who is a professional when it comes to detecting fine details. She looks around with a sharp gleam in her eyes as she ensures nothing goes wrong on set.
The other team leader Kim Joong Don talks on the phone with an amicable smile, giving off the appearance of someone with a soft heart. Finally, there is newbie manager So Hyun Joo, who can be seen toting a carrier full of coffee for the team while she looks around with an expression that is a mixture of bewilderment, curiosity, and awe.
As these four stand amongst such chaos, the urge to know just what kind of lives these individuals are living and what exactly their stories are grows even stronger.
The first episode of tvN’s “Surviving as a Celebrity Manager” will premiere on November 11 at 10:30 p.m. KST. Watch a teaser here!
