tvN has dropped a new highlight teaser for “Behind Every Star”!
Starring Lee Seo Jin, Kwak Sun Young, Seo Hyun Woo, and Joo Hyun Young, “Behind Every Star” is a remake of the hit French series “Call My Agent!” which captured the fierce struggles of top stars and their managers in a realistic and witty way. The series will relay a narrative that features episodes suitable for Korea, showcasing 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 highlight teaser kicks off with a funny scene between Oh Na Ra and Park Ho San, who play fictional versions of themselves. As they film a scene for an intriguing historical drama, a misunderstanding causes an argument between the actors and Oh Na Ra storms off set. In an attempt for peace, a staff member calls out, “Hey! Where’s the manager?!”
That’s where the four leads of “Behind Every Star” come in, with Lee Seo Jin as Ma Tae Oh, Kwak Sun Young as Cheon Jae In, Seo Hyun Woo as Kim Joong Don, and Joo Hyun Young as So Hyun Joo – the trusty employees of Method Entertainment.
When So Hyun Joo starts working at Method Entertainment as a newbie manager, she’s thrown into the chaotic scene with team leader Cheon Jae In telling her, “Your phone needs to be on 24 hours a day. You have to answer [the phone] when you’re eating, sleeping, on the toilet, and showering. There’s overtime [work] all the time, frequent all-nighters, and I cannot guarantee you a personal life.”
So Hyun Joo is then introduced to the other employees who sit in at a serious meeting. Team leader Kim Joong Don reports that one of their actress’ castings has been cancelled and Method’s general director Ma Tae Oh angrily replies, “If you work like that, will she renew her contract with us?”
Method’s marketing manager Choi Jin Hyuk (Kim Tae Oh) explains, “Ma Tae Oh is the real power of our company.” Ma Tae Oh is a talented and handsome man is from a prestigious university with a chaebol wife and is described as a mirage-like person.
Cheon Jae In’s dedication to work is highlighted as Choi Jin Hyuk adds, “Team leader Cheon Jae In takes and reads every single script sent to the company.” As someone who’s incredibly firm in her beliefs, she easily clashes with her co-workers as she criticizes their decisions and work ethic.
On the other hand, fellow team leader Kim Joong Don is less fiery than Cheon Jae In and often tormented by her saying he has no vision or goals. Regardless of her criticism, he believes that doing as he’s told by the company is most important.
In addition to Oh Na Ra and Park Ho San’s cameos, the teaser also previews guest appearances from other real-life stars playing themselves, including Kim Soo Mi, Seo Hyo Rim, Kim Ho Young, Kim Soo Ro, Son Jun Ho, Kim So Hyun, Kim Joo Ryoung, Jin Sun Kyu, Lee Hee Joon, Kim Su Hyun, Jo Yeo Jeong, Lee Soon Jae, Daniel Henney, and more. Many of these cameos will depict fictional versions of their real-life connections, including Jin Sun Kyu and Lee Hee Joon’s relationship as senior and junior, Kim Soo Mi and Seo Hyo Rim’s relationship as mother-in-law and daughter-in-law, and Son Jun Ho and Kim So Hyun’s relationship as a married couple.
Despite all the pain and struggle this industry puts them through, the employees of Method Entertainment develop trusting and loyal bonds with their actors as they do their best to support them in any way they can.
