The newly released visual for Surviving As A Celebrity Manager introduces METHOD Entertainment’s four managers Ma Tae-oh (Lee Seo-jin), Cheon Jae-in (Kwak Sun-young), Kim Joong-don (Seo Hyun-woo) and So Hyun-joo (Joo Hyun-young) as they are each engaged in their respective heated phone conversations. The brief teaser ends with all four managers holding METHOD Entertainment promotional pamphlets, as Lee Seo-jin’s voice can be heard saying: “I will do anything if it’s for our actors.”

Surviving As A Celebrity Manager will premiere its first episode via South Korean cable network tVN in November.

Surviving As A Celebrity Manager is a Korean remake of the hit French series Call My Agent!, which consisted of four seasons capturing the struggles of top stars and their managers. tVN’s remake will re-contextualise the original series for the Korean entertainment industry, showcasing the ways managers work with Korea’s top stars as they navigate work, love and ambition.

Tae-oh is the general director of METHOD Entertainment, described as a gentle and witty manager who is also an innate strategist. Kwak Sun-young’s role as Jae-in in the series will mark her first TV project in nearly a year since appearing in Hospital Playlist 2. Jae-in, described as a manager of 14 years, is a competitive workaholic with immense pride in her work and often butts heads with Tae-oh.

Joong-don is a pure-hearted manager who has a hard time saying no to others, and is also Jae-in’s best friend. Rounding out the main cast of characters is Hyun-joo, the company’s newest recruit, played by Joo Hyun-young.

While details about the series’ exact premiere date, broadcast schedule and other visuals have yet to be unveiled by tVN, they are expected in the coming weeks.

In other news, MONSTA X’s Hyungwon, Lee Shin-young and more have been announced by production company The Great Show to be joining EXO’s Xiumin in the cast for upcoming K-drama Sajangdol Mart, slated to premiere in 2023.
