SBS’s new drama, “The Musical”, holds its introductory press conference
SBS’s upcoming drama “The Musical” held a press conference at the Heritz Convention Center in Seoul on the afternoon of August 30th. It was attended by main actors Daniel Choi, Goo Hye Sun, Gi Eun Se, and Park Gi Ong, as well as staff from the production executive board.
Producer Nam Sang Moon expressed, “The reason why ‘The Musical’ was chosen to be produced was because of its originality. Not only is it the first drama to have a plot centered around musicals, but it also involves a love line between five people, rather than the conventional three or four.”
SBS has been dominating the prime time TV drama slots for all days of the week except Friday. These dramas include Monday-Tuesdays‘ “Warrior Baek Dong Soo”, Wednesday-Thursdays’ “Protect The Boss“, and the weekend’s “Scent of a Woman”.
With the addition of “The Musical” (to be broadcast every Friday), SBS could potentially dominate all seven days of drama prime time TV slots. “Since SBS already dominates all TV drama slots except for Friday, SBS will take over Friday’s prime time slot with this drama,” said Nam Sang Moon.
“The Musical” tells the story about the passion and determination of musical actors as they prepare for their stage, and the love lines that bloom in between. Characters in the drama include a medical student named Go Eun Bi (Goo Hye Sun) who dreams of becoming a musical actor; a former Broadway actor and now the best musical composer, Jay Hong (Daniel Choi); Eugene (Park Gi Ong), a cold-blooded investor who knows nothing but money; and Park Kang Hee (Ok Ju Hyun), the ‘Queen’ of the musical industry.
