Top star Jang Dong Gun will make his triumphant return to the small screen after 12 years. However, the actor has met his strong rival as his new drama will be competing against popular KBS2 variety show ‘Gag Concert’, which will share 40 minutes of overlap in broadcast time.
Jang Dong Gun is starring in the new SBS weekend drama ‘A Gentleman's Dignity’ starting from the 26th of May. This is his first drama since ‘All About Eve’ 12 years ago. He will be joining forces with writer Kim Eun Sook and producer Sin Woo Cheol, who created big hits shows like ‘Secret Garden’ and ‘THE CITY HALL.’
The drama department is worried as ‘Gag Concert’ has an average of 20% and more in viewing rating. There are many sections in he TV program that are very popular. A manager jokingly stated, “Everyone is concerned about Sunday because of ‘Gag Concert’. Also, the percentage for the drama isn't going to be easy to settle down with since the comedy program is the ‘it’ thing nowadays.”
