Variety Drama Co-Directed By PD Yoo Ho Jin And Cha Tae Hyun Holds First Script Read-Through
“Greatest One-Shot” (working title), the variety drama to be co-directed by former “2 Days & 1 Night” producing director (PD) Yoo Ho Jin and Cha Tae Hyun, recently held its first script read-through.
The drama also stars Yoon Shi Yoon and Kim Min Jae in a slice-of-life story about youths in their 20’s struggling to figure out their lives. The drama is said to be a new genre called “variety drama.” Monster Union’s PD Seo Soo Min, who produced “Producer,” and Green Snake Media will be participating in this project.
On April 3, “Greatest One-Shot” held its first script read-through in the Sangam neighborhood. As well as co-directing, Cha Tae Hyun will also play Lee Kwang Jae in the drama. Other stars include Lee Se Young, Yoon Son Ha, Dong Hyun Bae, Hong Kyung Min, ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo, Bona, Lee Deok Hwa, Im Ye Jin, Lee Jung Min, Son Soo Min, and Lee Han Seo.
Ahead of the read-through, Yoo Ho Jin and Cha Tae Hyun greeted the cast and production staff. “I hope this will become a place where we make each other stronger,” Yoo Ho Jin said. “I am lacking in a lot of places but I will work hard. I hope that this will become a light-hearted and fun drama.”
Cha Tae Hyun added, “I’ll be satisfied as long as we have fun doing it. I would like for us to suddenly get a good result after nobody expects anything from us.”
Yoon Shi Yoon, who plays Yoo Hyun Jae, said, “I feel like I have a lot of weight on my shoulders. I want to prepare as hard as I can so that I can feel more comfortable when it’s time to act on set. Acting is acting, but I will work hard on matching well with others.”
Kim Min Jae, who plays Lee Ji Hoon, said, “It’s an honor to be able to work with such great seniors. I will work really hard and show a good side of myself.”
Lee Deok Hwa said, who plays Lee Soon Tae, said, “It’s nice to work with so many young people. I will work hard so that we can get the greatest cut. I’ve prepared about three wigs but I think I have to prepare more. Let’s have fun!”
A source from Monster Union stated, “At the script reading, all the actors brought their passion, talent, and chemistry to the table. We felt reassured that this would be a fun drama going forward. We hope that many people will be interested in the unique characters and unpredictable stories from the variety drama ‘Greatest One-Shot.’”
The variety drama will air sometime near the end of May or beginning of June.
