With the popularity of KBS’ Friday-Saturday drama “Producer,” many viewers have been wondering if the drama is realistically portraying what actually happens behind-the-scenes of KBS’ Sunday variety show “1 Nights, 2 Days.”
“Producer,” starring Cha Tae Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, Kim Soo Hyun, and IU, portrays the world of the variety department in KBS, focusing on the production of “1 Night, 2 Days.” Kim Soo Hyun plays the role of Baek Seung Chan, a newbie PD in the variety show’s production team. A little awkward and clumsy, his character brings to mind PD Yoo Ho Jin of “1 Night, 2 Days,” who was introduced to viewers of the actual variety show years ago as the newbie PD. The show pulled a hidden camera prank on him back then, showing him very green, very flustered, and very confused in the face of the cast fighting. Now Yoo Ho Jin is in charge of the show, having shed his “newbie” title.
Fun fact: Baek Seung Chang graduated from Seoul University and Yoo Ho Jin is actually a graduate of Korea University. Both universities are considered one of the top three in Korea.
Regarding the similarity between him and Baek Seung Chan, Yoo Ho Jin commented, “I think his clumsiness and the chaos he feels as the newbie PD is similar to how I was.” He added, however, “When I see his good-looking face, though, I think he is very different. It was disheartening.”
Instead of Baek Seung Chan being a dramatized version of him, Yoo Ho Jin thinks that the character is more a portrayal of how a lot of youngsters in society feel like, just entering the workforce. “But the variety department is a little more difficult than a regular company,” he added.
When asked if he applied to become a KBS PD because of a pretty school senior like Baek Seung Chan did, Yoo Ho Jin answered, “LOL. No. I applied because I had to earn a living.”
