[Spoilers] Producer Ep 1, Orange Marmalade Ep 1


Osen - Naver: 'Producer' premiere,  curious about KBS variety department? 

1. [+2997, -442] More boring than I thought.....

2. [+2690, -429] First fail drama in Kim Soo Hyun's acting career.. So boring

3. [+2313, -198] The epilogue was more entertaining than the actual drama

4. [+1870, -244] Showing the same outcome as 'Secret Door' and 'Hyde, Jekyll and I' and in terms of movies,  it's the same level as 'The Fatal Encounter' and 'No Tears for the Dead'? It won't expect a huge success even with an impressive lineup

5. [+668, -98] The media played so much but the drama turned out to be boring.. Why did Kim Soo Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin and Cha Tae Hyun decide to do this drama?

6. [+420, -51] I thought it would be similar to 'On Air'....

7. [+437, -72] Woah.... This isn't what I expected

8. [+729, -389] So I'm the only one who enjoyed it?..

Osen - Naver: 'Producer' IU, Brazen+ haughty charm... 'Ice princess' 

1. [+5388, -369] Uhm. IU's haughty and brazen acting is so corny ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Looks like she's just pretending

2. [+4516, -300] Sorry, this haughty role isn't for you

3. [+3158, -238] The drama is horrible

4. [+1449, -190] IU's acting sucks. Drives me crazy

5. [+1160, -162] IU was awkward and Kim Soo Hyun is trying to create the impression that says 'I'm acting'... Why is everything so awkward? Just when I thought Kim Soo Hyun is the top among actor in their 20s

6. [+941, -83] IU needs to stop acting

7. [+890, -81] I trusted IU to do well but is it because of her character?.... What's up with her acting?



tv Report - Naver: 'Orange Marmalade' Yeo Jin Goo and Seolhyun's youthful romance

1. [+2253, -206] They have good synergy. The neck kiss and shower scene were so funny ㅋㅋ

2. [+2177, -195] Yeo Jin Goo is so handsome.. The end 

3. [+1500, -175] At this point~ I can say that it's off to a good start^^

4. [+1757, -573] Seolhyun is gorgeous

4. [+1363, -184] I personally think this is better than 'Producer'

6. [+340, -30] I'm happy that we get 2 episodes in one dayㅠㅠ

7. [+263, -54] More fun than Kim Soo Hyun and IU's drama.

8. [+201, -8] Why is Lee Jong Hyun doing such a great job as Han Shi Hoo? Daebak, I thought he wasn't Lee Jong Hyun at first.... I love Han Shi Hoo in the webtoon and it's totally awesome that he got it right

9. [+203, -48] This drama is boring too but it's relatively more fun than 'Producer' ...ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+224, -71] Lee Jong Hyun is more handsome than Yeo Jin Goo

11. [+148, -12] This drama is fun. The romance isn't excessive and I get a feeling of warmth as I watched. I like the pacing and the important scenes in the webtoon are well-incorporated.

12. [+119, -5] Good for Lee Jong Hyun for cutting his hair shorter ㅋㅋHe suits the role of Han Shi Hoo really well ㅋㅋHe has the face and the height for it

13. [+118, -6] I was so worried at first because they didn't match the original characters in the webtoon. It's embarrassing to admit but I'm liking this drama despite how childish it is..  Why is it immature but fun? It's fun so I'll keep watching. Yeo Jin Goo is a great actor

14. [+116, -8] It would've been smarter if they aired this one as a Mon-Tue drama instead of 'Blood'

(???)
What is out there is translated and these numbers (upvotes) justify the articles as a good translation pick.

ciu said...

ok ~ thanks

I wonder if Producer will get slaughtered by tvn. Should have kept their original time-slot. Though everyone needs their first flop and it's not too bad, it takes off pressure. So KSH will be fine.

Lidya Wester said...

aren't it's too early to call Producer flop (especially when all weekly dramas now straggle to pass 8-10%). also, Kim Soo Hyun have new movie coming out this year. More than 3 million admission and he will be okay and still top actor.

Ivery said...

Awe... Gong hyo jin always picks good projects,I was hoping for different feedbacks but since all the hype about this drama I knew it would be a little disappointing t lol

_엑소-L said...

I am predicting that it will. Three Meals a Day has explosive ratings even tho it's on cable tv. I think its highest rating is 14% which is really high for cable tv. I feel like a lot of the overhyped dramas like Hyde Jekyll Me, Warm & Cozy (so far first 2 episodes are not what I expected), Producer have boring plots. I only watch for the actors/actresses. I end up liking the underrated dramas a lot more (School 2015 and Falling for Soojung)

Lidya Wester said...

oh my poor School 2015 heart... T___T i really root for rise to 10%, but maybe it's too late...

_엑소-L said...

the Korean audience keeps comparing School 2013 to School 2015
ㅠㅠ most of them like the former one better. I actually like the current one more cause it has a good combo of mystery & romance.

Lidya Wester said...

well, School 2013 and School 2015 totally different dramas. One realistic look at typical Korean students in typical Korean school with typical Korean school problems. It was cheaper in production, more raw, with focus purely on characters without any mystery. It was a drama about real relationships between people who straggle to find their way, maintain grades, achieve dreams and ect. On other hand School 2015 more rich on production and plot, but also more like our everyday a bit (or big lol) fantasy k-dramas. People relationships also play big role here (and i must say very enjoyable one), but in a less realistic way than in School 2013. But, both dramas great and School 2015 definitely deserve better ratings and more exposure. To bad drama world itself straggle with ratings after YHCFTS ended.

tiffanny loveley said...

Well i will watch Yeo Jin Goo drama ^^

_엑소-L said...

I agree with your detailed comparison. You explained very well how the two dramas are different. I think people should stop comparing them.
Many viewers are actually watching dramas online, therefore, tv ratings don't really reflect a drama's popularity. Kill Me Heal Me was very popular and it didn't have high ratings. The lipstick that YoNa ^^ /JiSung wore sold out.

muramurr said...

so sad about the comments :( was hoping producer would do well...

goldenmellow said...

That's insane for cable. Hell, it's insane for normal TV nowadays lol. Producer doesn't even seem fresh since they changed the PD and it's not a variety PD doing it.. Now it's just a normal boring drama on a special time-slot. Anyway, overhyping drams NEVER works out. They better not blame IU for everything though.

goldenmellow said...

I think the point is he's never had a misstep in his career. Everything he's done has been megahits. It doesn't ruin his career by any means, but just takes off some the untouchable aura he had.

Lidya Wester said...

Kill Me Heal Me had stabile 10% every week (and higher % in Seoul), enough to make a little buzz and sell out items in a drama even in old times. Like You're Beautiful from Hong Sisters. Hardly rating success, but items sold out like hot bread and was overseas hit. But, web and online watching wasn't invited in 2014. So, why ratings suddenly dropped that much still a mystery (question) to me. Like SBS had four straight big dramas that passed 20% in a row at the end of 2013 and start of 2014 and then boom and we hardly even see any drama passing 10-15%. Maybe new drama from KES (as much The Heirs was terrible) going to change it...

Lidya Wester said...

I still want to wait until 4-6th episode to see if it's really a flop for him. Because even with missteps i see no match to KSH in men acting world (popularity wise), doubt it would scratch his "untouchable" aura (and i'm not even his fan). There is no one really to fill his place yet. Only if Song Joon Ki and KES with her DOFTS would make almost impossible and archive 17-20%.

goldenmellow said...

You don't need to wait that long. If the ratings today that come in soon are low and below a cable variety you have the story. He's not a failure, but it does make him just like every other actor out there who has ups and downs. Not a bad thing anyway.


There are a lot of popular actors out there. He's not the only one lol. He's not even close to being top.

Haeyoung said...

I wouldn't call a drama "flop" when it aired its first episode like... today. You obviously made the comment before the ratings was out - it is now and they broke double digit (10.1%) in a time slot thats not only new but is also against a variety that is widely appreciated and has been on air for its third season. Yes, its on cable, but cable has been getting a lot more popular the past year so that doesn't tell a special story.


For a drama that many are claiming as boring in the first 15 episodes, they stuck around to watch the whole episode thus the double digits. I'd definitely wait for a few more episodes to declare something is a flop. You're definitely right that its not bad for him to hit some lows, but I'm not sure I'd declare this as a 'low' until we see a clear indication that it is indeed as horrible as some make it seem.

goldenmellow said...

Yes, we'll see. 10% is great actually. The show that was in that timeslot before was doing terrible. If people stick around then it's not bad and I could see some changes being made to keep people watching. That's what kdramas do. Though on the other hand, people could have watched the first episode and then stop watching it. So yeah, a couple episodes and we'll see. Either way, the actors aren't getting blamed for anything and it doesn't really affect them.

Haeyoung said...

Yea definitely with you here. If people stick around and changes are made for the better, those numbers will climb because for the first 30 min, they aren't competing with anything. It's wait and watch from here on, and tomorrow's numbers (as well as next week's) would give us an indication on how the rest will pan out. Its definitely interesting and I personally hope they succeed because they're courageous enough to try something new. I feel they just need a bit of tweaking here and there and they'll be fine.

DyanA said...

2nd lead syndrome again, Lee Jonghyun, i think he really did well as Han Si Hoo ^^

HJK said...

if the drama has 20 eps, it s ok to wait to ep 4-6. But this one is only 12 eps, 2-3 eps are more than enough to judge.


Even superstar has flop movie/drama, so it wont hurt KSH much if this drama does not do well

muramurr said...

if you're not his fan why you post the same comments here and on NB site. lol.

HJK said...

i would love School 2015 more if a better actor plays Yi An. NJH is suck period. Luckily, KSH and YSJ save the show for me. (oh, and that crazy bully bitch)

dragonflower said...

Get that love seolhyunnie jonghyuniieeeee.

_엑소-L said...

I managed to check out the first episode rn I could not get past the 10 min mark maybe later episodes will be better as the plot progresses idk. I agree they should not blame one person for a drama's failure (netizens blamed goo hye sun's actin for blood's failure tho :/ ).

earone said...

I think the casts really attract the audience especially their fans so it will help a lot. on Friday, being 30 minutes earlier than 3 meal a days is also a huge advantages to lock more audience if the story get better for the next episode. On Saturday, it has to compete with MBC weekend drama which is stronger competitor than 3 meal a day. ...

noNama said...

Channel M did air 3 Days a Meal: Fishing Village with English subtitles. Managed to catch few episodes and I like it better than the original 3 Days a Meal.

noNama said...

Even if Producer flops, they at least flop while trying to do something different (new time slot, documentary-like setting). I personally think that's one of the reasons the cast accept the offer to do it.

Lidya Wester said...

oh people like you, who think that posting the same comments in two different sites crime and never believe person, just because he can admit the person popular when he is popular. i originally intended to post only on netizenbuzz. made mistake and end up posting here. i can't delete it, so i just posted twice. here and on netizenbuzz. i don't think it's hurt somebody.

Lidya Wester said...

oh, to be honest i forget that it's this drama only 12 ep... but 10% decent. today's and next ep. ratings most important to see how it's really doing and if most viewers really disappointed.

HJK said...

10% is decent, but compared to 7.8% that 3MAD got ( and that show is on cable), it s quite a disappointment for KBS.

Lidya Wester said...

3MAD was a huge cable hit. really huge. i don't think KBS by any mean expect more than 10-12% for Producer in this dark days against cable megabit.

Lidya Wester said...

I don't think DOtS really hyped. There is more concerns about it, that hype. People don't think couple would work, SHK tax scandal still fresh in k-nets. mind, KES previous job The Heirs despite rating success had terrible script, so she failed as writer, "completely filmed before airing" format (previous dramas that tried it all flopped) and ect., ... And dramas with most problems, usually have a good record to at the end turn into public darlings.

pinkcherry said...

Only 12 eps???? I just knew that. Then. I hope the plot moves on fast...
I adore GHJ so much and i want this to do really well

__soosee said...

i dont trust k-netz opinions for sometimes , Hyde jekyell was good until sungjoon was in jail but then the script dropped
-srry for my bad english

libby a. said...

I guess I'm one of the few who enjoyed Producer. It's not as good as I expected it to be, but it's also not as horrible as these comments suggest.
But then again, I'm a variety show viewer and the use of the KBS variety department as setting is actually the draw of this drama for me more than the star-studded cast. I can understand why many people, especially non-variety viewers, would find the making-of-a-show storyline boring and would just want to see the love stories between the lead actors.
I think they need to focus less on the variety and more on the drama aspect of the show if they don't want to lose their viewers completely.

Sandy Claws said...

He really fits the role well.. I'm glad to see the positive comments.

blubo said...

it might be because of iu bright image is to strong, or she need stronger make up or hairstyle... this character is not suit her....

♫ Hime ♫ said...

aren't they implementing Park and Recreations mockumentary style? i don't really like that style either at the first sight but it's usually getting better when the plot starting to grow.

Cammie said...

This is a hindsight reply to a super old comment you made but lol, I just had to reply considering how right you were before. Can't believe others here actually declared Producer a Flop before episode 1's rating was out. That's just.... lol WTF. Anyways, I guess KSH and PJE achieved the almost impossible since last ep ratings was 17.7 and broke 20% in Seoul for tnms.
