Yeppp cindy is happy hallelujah. BSC remains as my favorite character and KSH is killing it. Maybe because they are veterans. There's nothing to joining the site watch - just watch the two episodes each week on your own time then put a post on your fan wall or even dive into the old recaps. Seung Chan tries to let her down nicely about how having a one-sided love is tiring, but Cindy just thinks that he’s making fun of her. And KSH kissing CTH on the mouth. With that said, ombrella couple's relationship looks healthier and more promising even if Cindy's an idol and SC's a bit clueless ;-). Whenever sb asks if a drama is worth watching, the answer really depends on what they are looking for. Her agency has been defaced with graffiti, and Cindy arrives to offer the name of a cleaner that does well against such slurs. He was funny (to me) in every scene and he really sold how detestable yet lovable his character was. Your email address will not be published. No successful dating partner? I remember one reader wrote in a comment during Episode 9 (if I'm not mistaken) as a reply to us discussing who will Ye Jin kiss, and she wrote: Seung Chan will kiss Joon Mo! I dont know why people didn't like him ..the best was that he spoke less but whenever he did it was words full of wisdom ..especially his big brother treatment towards Cindy . The Producers = a show-within-a-show full of metaphors + a variety drama + mockumentary + heartfelt rom-com + coming-of-age story. That aloof, not-caring attitude and poker-face paid off totally big time in the scene w/ CEO Byun in the dressing room. Lol. But Oppa says she was the prettiest she’s ever been. Until I read your comment!!! And I have no hate for KSH who is a good actor and did a good job with his character and he obviously isn't at fault here, the writer/writers are, but damn it's still frustrating (if you're not a KSH superfan anyway). Ye-jin, on the other hand, interviews about how she understands now how owning a home changes how you feel about it. I get emotional imagining the hardships she endured the whole time. He was my least favorite character and deeply frustrating, and I literally shouted at my screen multiple times, “BE A HEROOOOO!” But he did finally step up, and for that I’m relieved. }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Well, it’s been a fun run, but it’s time to say goodbye to The Producers, which ends on a lesson about what it’s like to secure longevity, whether that’s with a program, a career, or relationships. Huge shout out to KSH who has proven yet again that just because he’s currently the biggest Hallyu star, doesnt mean he is a flowerboy who cant impress the heck outta me. The Producers kept trying to sell the love rectangle, which was so unconvincing because it was obviously a love 'line' from the start. Kim Soo-hyun is particularly REALLY good here, and super endearing as Seung-chan. He covers his ears and tries to block out Joon-mo’s story of doing an overnight trip where he saw a woman in white with long hair (the traditional Korean ghost image), and jumps in fright when Joon-mo yells suddenly. I for one really loved this drama. I found the docu-cam, mockumentary style verrrrry boring. or SC was pee-your-pants funny in his YJ imitation. Cindy sits outside her grandma’s house with Seung-chan and Joon-mo, and a comment about being scared to use the outhouse at night prompts Joon-mo to say there are ghosts afoot, which makes Seung-chan visibly nervous. Turned around, it becomes an empowering thought, really: that you find the meaning in things, rather than meaning being prescribed to you from the start, weighing on your shoulders like a burden you’re fated to carry. ;-). Great last episode fav character surprisingly was Joon Mo. It just randomly happened because the drama was ending?

I'm a little surprised KBS didn't try establishing the slot since very recently there were talks of shuffling the usual weekday air time due to poor ratings. I agree that Kim Soo-hyun probably did cause the distribution of screentime to go off-balance in the later eps, but I really feel like the ratings success of Producer is a one-off. FB.init({ Many ppl were upset w JM not stepping up to the plate, but I wasn't too bothered, cos CTH is just fantastic to watch, no matter what foolery his char is up to. in my opinion the ending was kept give the viewers hope for a second season just like in the series it is said that "as long as you have hope and never give up you can change the future" toward the last scene we get to see the walkie talkie flicker again maybe the transmissions started again or had started for a while now but this time with someone from the future (just a thought) Sandara feigns concern and asks if the stories are all a misunderstanding. It was satisfying to have her be something of the emotional climax of the show, and that the three other characters all played a part in backing her when everyone else wanted to ditch her. Joon-mo leaves at some point and they remain like that for a while. They'll be airing a variety pilot on Friday, and yes, EW regularly on Saturdays. }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Please enter your username or email address. Overall nicely done, though I kind of wish they put as much effort as they did for story development earlier in the drama, like around ep 7 as I really thought with a casting group as such, the rating they got on their finale could of easily been something they could of obtained mid way through this drama. I'm impressed by both Kim Soo-hyun and IU putting aside any starry ego they might have had and committing to a drama where neither of them gets their love interest. See, drunk Ye Jin 2.0! Then he adopts Ye-jin’s drunken aegyo, dancing madly and wheedling them to go eat live octopus, and Ye-jin is amazed and horrified to encounter what she’s like from the observer’s perspective. He describes relationships as the result of a bunch of little incidences rather than meaning something specific from the start, and that’s a lovely sentiment to end on. whitewire: The answer is NO. They eventually base it on Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. Ye-jin agrees that nothing has gone well for Joon-mo’s shows, but asks, “Do you think there were never orders from above to swap out the writer?” On, snap. Joon-mo insists he didn’t—all he did was answer the question about what his job was, and she smiles at the confirmation that it was his doing. PWNED. I think this is a show worth-watching.. Everyone delivers his/her acting part well, no one sticking as sore thumb. Life gains meaning through living it—nothing means everything, but everything can mean something. Some of us may be disappointed that it didn't stick with the experimental documentary format, but frankly, on its own merits, it's still a bloody good show. I wasn't able to connect with Cindy's arc at first. I laugh out with baek seung chan drunk scene:) I'm am IU fan right now which was why I watched the show but I couldn't really connect to her character at first. And she may be happily in love now, but Ye Jin is still the kickass PD that we know and love. This is the reason why KSH is so popular and successful ! (function(d, s, id) { i am gonna miss seung chan. (I´m looking at you, School. This time around The Producers enlightended and entertained us with all the meta, a behind the scenes look into variety tv production and programming, celebrity and the life of an idol, and a peek into other aspects of the entertainment industry. and Im happy that Joon Mo and Ye jin End together. He does manage to bring to life a bookish young man, fresh, earnest and clueless at his job and love life. because in real life, if you confess you feelings to her, you don't need to kissed her to proved that you love her. As a fan of The Office, and variety shows in general, I'll admit that I was not a fan of the first few episodes (though apparently, internationally speaking, I was in the minority here). Just like the title, The Producersis a Korean drama that tells the story of the life of producers. By whom, e.g.? The KBS drama “Descendants of the Sun,” which ended yesterday, April 14 KST, was supposed to have a different ending. *would like to see more. And if anything, seeing Ye Jin through the eyes of two men who loved her only made me understand and appreciate her that much more. I was sidetracked by episode 8 of Crowned Clown 😔 but I'll find my way back soon. The cast is great, even IU. not to mention, she's a celebrity and from what I know, Korea does not take well to idols dating...... but it was a wise decision not to take the love line there and have to consider that element. Popularity always ends. Who turn out to be, for the most part, just like the people who work outside of it, too. Never once I thought that BSC would have a chance. great ending. Who can tell the future, anyway? The team worries about Seung-chan being out of touch, just as he arrives at the station—totally hammered, mind you, and spouting off in banmal at all his superiors. KSH was surprisingly convincing as well. He's willing to drag himself from bed and drive all the way to her place at some ungodly hour to kill mosquitoes?! 1st and foremost, TP has strong writing w/ well-developed characters and scenarios and changes to characters/relationships which seem real/plausible and good acting to go along w/ it. It's a shame people get so attached to actors that they feel a realized love-line is often a requirement, or an acceptable form of measuring quality. Of course I expect things to change now that the competition was wrapped up. If you fancy yourself a writer, or enjoy exploring what goes into making a story, watch this drama. He got to play the much better and developed character, got a largely significant amount of airtime and knetz praising him in the whole of the dramas run. I refresh my browser feverishly after watching the raws and read while I watch the subbed so that I won't miss anything. !I know why they are not kissing because their love story/relationship is realistic. I don't really watch the whole thing over and over, and I always skip episode 15 because I don't like that episode, but I like to at least skip through and just watch the interactions between the leads. window.fbAsyncInit = function() { I just meant to say it has been a very long time since a miniseries achieved ratings worth boasting. Thank you to everyone for reading these recaps and loving Chandy as much as me. But I guess, that's not going to happen, right? Song Hae interviews (while Seung-chan is passed out beside him) that people think he can do his program in his sleep now, but he says that it still makes his heart pound, and he does it because he loves it. CEO Byun drops in on the station director to have her say about Cindy’s continued presence on 1N2D, then offers Jini for Star Wars instead. Da Jung (the MU maknae writer) has finally smiled! In my country, we don't have this mandatory enlisting. Cindy and Seung-chan follow their grandma home, and the woman asks, “Which of you is the celebrity?” Pwaha. I found the docu-cam, mockumentary style verrrrry boring.". ), Over at Music Bank, Ye-jin’s co-workers comment on Cindy’s scandal. Among the top of the actors in Korea for sure! I like how Javabeans puts it in her comments "In Seung-chan’s case, he frames his experience of heartbreak as part of a learning process, as part of the time he spent putting one foot in front of the other, figuring things out from the ground up. This drama was aired from May 2015, until June 2015, on KBS2. I'm not sure that I cared about romance (it dragged out far too long), but I was very happy when characters were developed that I could care about. Cindy asks them if the 2D1N cancellation rumors are because of her. So she ends up washing them herself in a tub, tossing a few hints for help at Seung-chan that he misses completely. Cindy tells him just to remember that she, the beloved star, and despite him not having “one bag of hot cakes’ worth of interest” in her, really likes him. And for that, he’s thankful. Im really happy that I decided to watched this drama. I felt he got the short end of the stick by not being able to romance Seung-chan. I did not really enjoy Moon that embraces the sun, kind of hated the ending for My Love from the Stars, so this is my favourite role of his so far... Let's hope more great projects for this amazing talented actor! Typo: "gradually as we get to know Cindy more, we see that it wasN'T IU's acting that was stiff..." Then the show changed directions, and at that point I wish they’d have gotten rid of the mockumentary camera entirely rather than feature them as random interviews. I think she's great. CEO Byun, that old hag, definitely had no idea that tape was still out there. That’s when a sunbae PD enters the room and asks what he’s doing—and Seung-chan sees that nobody’s there. thank for the recap. Seung-chan gets into an elevator at the office with CP Kim, who teases him about his behavior last night, calling him by his first name and patting his head. I know that it's expected that they would end up together (come on, the hints are all over the place). Writer Da-jung sees her wearing the same outfit from last night and assumes her romantic dilemma resolved herself happily. Now can you pair up with PSH or MCW and give us an EPIC love story before you enlist??? Life gains meaning through living it—nothing means everything, but everything can mean something.". He arrives well beyond the deadline, but sits himself down and says she’d be crazy sorry if she knew what he gave up to be here. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, Producers shot up to 17.7 which is truly and utterly impressive. She asks if his promise to make it up to her for the embarrassing preview voiceover is still good. OUT IN THE OPEN | Joon Mo single handedly pisses off KBS, CEO Byun, and the Korean public by having Cindy continue shooting 2D1N. And I love all the episode titles and how they relate to each episodes message. Every episode was unnecessarily too long, so thank you, javabeans and girlfriday, for recapping them! Loved all the actors, even KJK who I cant believe is this good!!!! Honestly he's got great features and looks handsome with or with make up. Thank you JB for explaining that the production team did this in a very short time though I really really don't understand why they like to make drama in a stressful schedule like that in Korea. Instead, he just gives her a “Fighting!” and starts to move on. Tags: Cha Tae-hyun, featured, Gong Hyo-jin, IU, Kim Soo-hyun, The Producers, Your email address will not be published.

Cindy remains surprisingly emotionless through CEO Byun’s tantrum, but a flashback shows us that she knew about it in advance. First of all, this drama had the workings to be something really great. I always thought that rather than IU the actor, it was Cindy the character who was strange and stiff in the first two episodes, since it fit in with Cindy and Cindy's image perfectly and was completely in-character imo. CEO Byun stops her, though—to advise her gently to read the contents of any contract before signing. The others tell him to go ahead and do as he wishes, and he beelines for Ye-jin with arms outstretched… so Joon-mo trips him and sends him crashing down. He stumbles back to KBS, threatening to spill Joon Mo’s secrets, so Joon Mo and Ye Jin have no choice but to drag him home. Surprisingly, Cindy says that she knows she loved her. Graceful Family Ending Explained for those who might be a little confused. I ask ncos I honestly have no idea what you mean. Yes, you! The boys say that Cindy’s not so bad once you get to know her, but Sandara snipes about how fake Cindy is, all different behind your back than to your face. Hong-soon continues to pine after Office Nazi, who continues to ignore his texts. His stuttering and stammering about bldg. But of course they decided to drag this "love triangle" (which was never a love triangle tbh because it was always obvious that SC's feelings were never returned!) Glad that Ra Joon-Mo & Tak Ye-Jin finally opened up to each other about their romantic feelings for one another and are now together. with jh interview.. is that a hint that office nazy is actually the president's daughter?? or maybe because CTH played the part lol. I loved in particular how realistic it was in capturing the angst one would go through in recognizing romantic feelings for a longtime friend. The show had launched under the description “variety drama,” and filming the show as a show-within-a-show was such a cute, novel ideal (for Korean dramas) that when they gave up right away, it made me disappointed with the public for not embracing the idea and angry with the producers for caving to the initial responses. Really liked Kim Jong Kook in this drama. Somehow CTH makes JM's sheepishness and pigheadedness believable and forgivable to me. It definitely wasn't just the dramabeans staff. His ending voiceover was poignant and bittersweet, and at the very least draws a little of the sting out of his disappointed romantic hopes. Seung-chan interviews that he’d worried about Cindy but is glad to see her holding up well. is this really based on fact, or just an assumption seeing some not-so-popular-idols(not that many though) getting lead roles? Ye-jin smiles as she walks along the now-lit path, and calls Joon-mo late that night while he’s already asleep. Are you kidding me?! So of course when Joon Mo tells Cindy to just go inside and sleep, she tells him that she wants to stay out here a little while longer. But then, Seung Chan takes the luggage and carries it for her! Exactly, I do hope to see SC confess his feeling to Cindy one day! Would it be better if the chars were played unprofessionally? I hope the show won't be cancelled any soon.

Please click the link in that email to complete the email change process. I always imagined that people who liked Cindy from the start were IU fans because that character was bloody awful. Just let the relationship develop naturally and let them be themselves, they're one up on Joon-mo and Ye-jin in some ways because they've made their feelings clear (though I guess Cindy didn't have a 20 year friendship with Seung-chan to lose, the way Joon-mo did with Ye-jin), +1! All my frustrations with the lovelines has been well paid off, especially with JM and YJ. But format aside, looking at a purely story point of view, I was entertained and moved, and thought the lessons were smartly drawn to use the industry as a metaphor for the issues the characters were facing. Its fitting that its another KSH’s show ends up breaking that curse. Ye-jin hears from the maintenance office that they fixed the street lights sooner than scheduled because of that broadcast PD who made a pest of himself calling about it, threatening to put it on air if they didn’t fix them right away. Download the latest version here. At first I felt sad because it's the finale (so soon....) but I'm relieved with the final episode. Joon-mo, as a character had as much potential to develop as the younger characters but that wasn’t to be because the writer focused on Seung-chan who in turn, stole it.

Joon Mo embraces Ye Jin, which she happily accepts. And how, through all the uneasy, nerve-filled days to follow, he’d think to himself every night: “Let’s just try today, and if it’s not right, let’s quit. Ye Jin caring for Cindy has always been a highlight of this drama, and it's even sweeter how Ye Jin downplayed the amount of time and effort it took for her to find the footage. To make conversation, she asks where he watched the World Cup and gets excited to hear that they were at the same park to watch one of the matches.
