The drunk acting battle between the two actresses of the drama “Producer” is on!

On the June 5 episode of KBS 2TV‘s drama “Producer,” IU‘s character Cindy stays with Cha Tae Hyun‘s character, Ra Jun Mo, at his house. Tak Ye Jin, played by Gong Hyo Jin, and Baek Seung Chan, played by Kim Soo Hyun, join them at Jun Mo’s house for a meal and drinks eventually.

Cindy starts mixing the liquor, saying, “I debuted at thirteen so I don’t know anything.” She adds, “I have never even drank properly.” She quickly gets drunk with her delicious alcoholic drink and begins to complain, repeating herself over and over.

At this, Ye Jin criticizes, “She has drunk habits. She has to get rid of her drunk habits.” However, when she herself gets drunk, she explodes with aegyo, referring to herself in the third person. While Seung Chan tries to stop her, she continues on, “Ye Jin wants to go for a second round. Let’s go for a second round.”

New stills from “Producer” have been released that are said to depict a scene in which Tak Ye Jin (played by Gong Hyo Jin) and Cindy (played by IU) continue to fuel their mutual loathing as they meet again at a work get-together.

The first time viewers saw the two characters interact, “Music Bank” producer Tak Ye Jin was confronting diva Cindy about the revealing clothes she was planning on wearing on stage. Cindy managed to get the better of Tak Ye Jin in that episode.

Regarding the scene in the new photos, a staff member from “Producer” says, “It’s the beginning of the sweet-and-sour battle between these two characters when they meet each other by chance.”

“As you can tell from the way Cindy is responding coldly to Tak Ye Jin’s blazing stare, it’s expected that this will be a scene where the personalities of these characters come to the fore.”

Be sure to watch the fifth episode of “Producer” when it airs on May 29 to see what goes down between these two fierce characters!

On KBS‘s latest hit drama “Producer,” IU plays a cold and jaded young singer named Cindy who bosses around her meek manager and keeps herself closed off from everyone.

As the show is being praised for its realistic portrayal of what goes on behind the scenes on variety shows, there has been some speculation about just how true to life the show is.

Despite IU’s reputation as a cheerful and altruistic star, some netizens have been speculating that the characters of Cindy and her manager are based on IU and her colleagues.

IU’s real-life manager, Loen Entertainment‘s Park Jung Hyun, has responded to this speculation. He says, “It seems like they’re portraying it comically for the drama. I’ve been enjoying watching the show.”

In the 2nd quarter, IU, Sistar and other LOEN star singers will begin their promotions. A new boygroup will be debuting, too.

Q&A with LOEN representative:

Q. Your operating profits in the 1st quarter fell short of expectations. Why is that so?

The production presentation for KBS’s Friday-Saturday television series ‘The Producers’ was held on May 11 at The Raum in Yeoksam-dong, Gangnam-gu in Seoul. Cast members Cha Tae-hyun, Gong Hyo-jin, Kim Soo-hyun, IU along with the production team attended the event.

IU, originally a singer who added acting to her career a few years ago, was cast as top singer ‘Cindy’ on ‘The Producers’. “Doing a television drama provides catharsis to me,” said IU.

“I talk like Cindy with my managers during breaks. I’m also thinking I should live a life her for a while. She looks like a cold person on the outside, but in fact there is pureness and warmth inside her. She’s not a person who is so stuck-up after all,” she explained about her role.

“However, there is one negative thing about Cindy; she is always so upset and annoyed, and she takes it out on her manager. But then, when she does something wrong or makes a mistake, then she apologizes like it’s the last day on earth. Haha, to be frankly, I am a bit like her.”

The press conference for KBS 2TV drama, 'Producer,' took place on May 11 at The Raum with the four main actors, including IU.

On this day, IU, who plays top singer Cindy, was asked, "Cha Tae Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, and Kim Soo Hyun are all producers, but you're the only one who's a singer.

"Don't you feel left out?" She replied, "I felt both left out and guilty. They're all originally actors and I was originally a singer, so I think I felt intimidated. No one treats me badly, but I'm feeling like this by myself for no reason."

In relation to getting an offer for her role, she said, "When I heard about the actors they'd cast, I wanted to get my spoon in there," making everyone laugh. Who wouldn't want to join such a star-studded lineup?

She talked more in depth about her character, revealing she was very similar to Cindy. IU said, "We're fascinatingly alike when it comes to venting frustrations on our managers. Even my manager was reading lines with me and said it gave him goosebumps. Everybody has his or her frustrations and irritability. There are times when I'm acting and I think, 'Ah, this is me.'"
