The KBS entertainment and drama departments are attempting to reignite Hallyu with new dramas. They are "Producers" and "Descendants of the Sun".

"Producers" is the story of entertainment Producerss who go to work every day to the broadcasting stations. "Descendants of the Sun" is the love story between UN peacekeeper Captain Kim Si-jin and army surgeon Yoon Myeong-joo from Korea to stationing areas.

The two dramas are such a big deal firstly because of the cast. Actor Cha Tae-hyun, an icon in romantic comedies and warm energy, is starring in the drama "Producers" as a producer who is 10 years into his career. Gong Hyo-jin joins him in this one as a fellow producer.

IU also stands out here. Not only is she a singer but a talented actress who starred in "Lee Soon-sin is the Best" and "Pretty Boy" and this time she's a well-fermented singer in "Producers". Expectations soar as news of Hallyu star Kim Soo-hyun in the lead goes around. He will take on the role of an elite Producers and IU's crush.

"Descendants of the Sun" which is due at the end of the year, hasn't started casting yet but it determined to create a strong cast. Song Joong-ki who is discharged from National Service this May, is a likely candidate for the main role.

China and Japan have great interest in these two new dramas because of the crew, the scale and the fact that they are written by Park Ji-eun from "My Love from the Star" and Kim Eun-sook from "The Heirs". Apparently, Gong Hyo-jin chose this drama because it was new to have the entertainment department create a drama and she also trusted Park Ji-eun. In addition to the writers Seo Soo-min-I from the KBS 2TV show "Gag Concert" is stepping on board with independent film director, Yoon Seong-ho.

"Descendants of the Sun" plans to be filmed overseas to perfection with pre-planned scenarios and potential. It's said that these two dramas will have Hallyu back on wheels.

Experts say, "Ever since "My Sassy Girl" created an impact in China in the early 2000s, the drama plate has risen. "The Heirs" recorded 30 thousand or so dollars for every episode, "My Love from the Star" equaled roughly 35 thousand dollars and "It's Okay, That's Love" totaled 120 thousand dollars".
