I’m not talking about My Secret Romance. There’s another one. You can get double the Sung Hoon now! If you’re willing to pay for him.
Amazon Prime just released The Idolmaster KR on their streaming service. It’s based on a video game and is pre-produced, so no live shoot problems. In this showbiz centered drama, Sung Hoon plays a genius music producer who convinces an identical twin to follow in her dead sister’s footsteps. I know it sounds a little morbid, but the longer trailer has some lighthearted moments as K-pop wannabes compete against each other to become the next big group. From the looks of it, the aspiring singers are going to take up a lot of the storyline.
Here is a Sung Hoon-centric teaser for the show and a link to the official website.
The Idolmaster KR is also showing on some of the SBS channels if you have Korean cable. On Amazon, it airs once a week on Fridays for 24 weeks. The first episode was 45 minutes long. I admit I’m not willing to pay for another streaming service, not even for Sung Hoon. But anyone who already has Amazon Prime is good to go. If you are a die hard fan and don’t mind paying, then the cost of Amazon Prime Video is $8.99 a month. What I might do is wait six months until the show is completely released, then pay for one month of Prime and marathon it. Yes, I know. I’m a cheapskate. But I prefer to think of it as being cost conscious.
Happy Saturday, everyone!
