    Every year, KEYEAST, which has become a content studio powerhouse, presents a variety of genres and dramas of new fun, and released the first lineup of dramas in 2021, which became even more powerful.

    In 2020 alone, KEYEAST showed remarkable achievements in showing a total of 6 dramas through various channels, starting with tvN'싸이코패스 다이어리' in January, SBS'하이에나' in February, followed by Netflix original'보건교사 안은영' in September.

Soon after, in October, through MBN channel,'나의 위험한 아내', JTBC'라이브온' co-produced with a playlist in November, and JTBC'HUSH' starring Hwang Jung Min and Lim Yoona in December.

    In 2021, we plan to show complete dramas that stand out with original plans. First of all, a total of 4 dramas were released as the first lineup.


    ◆ < 별들에게 물어봐 >  

    If there was a'하이에나' in 2020, the tent pole drama representing KEYEAST in 2021 is the masterpiece drama'별들에게 물어봐'. This is the first space drama in Korea to be completed after three years of preparation by author Seo Sook Hyang, the master of romantic comedies such as “질투의 화신” and “파스타”. This work, which will continue the genealogy of K-romantic comedies that captivate global fans such as '사랑의 불시착' and '사이코지만 괜찮아,' is a '우주정거장 로맨틱 코미디' of space tourists and astronauts, with a total production cost of 400, including the construction of a space station set. More than a billion won is expected to be invested, and currently, we are coordinating the schedule with large star actors targeting overseas fans.


    ◆ < 경이로운 구경이 >

    It is an unprecedented new female action chase thriller advocating the “Asian version of Killing Eve,” depicting a breathtaking encounter between a female detective in her 40s, a former police officer and an incumbent insurance investigator, and a female college student killer, a serial killer. The promising rookie co-author team '성초이' is expected to participate in the drama, and Lee Jung-heum PD, who has proven a fresh directing optimized for genre drama through'아무도 모른다' and'조작', raises expectations. Currently, she is coordinating her appearance with the original Korean Wave star actress, and as a result, requests for pre-purchase from leading platforms in China and Japan are flooding.

    ◆ < 한 사람만 >  

    As the third runner, the 16-part drama “한 사람만” is waiting. This is the first drama about a heartwarming and sometimes funny romance in a hospice ward in Korea with the hospice version of “Orange Is the New Black.” Artist Moon Jung-min, who has proven excellence in describing delicate emotions with'최고의 이혼', and'역도요정 김복주','투깝스' and'그 남자의 기억법' show a sophisticated production that captures romance narratives in sensual images. It is expected that Oh Hyun-jong PD will captivate the hearts of viewers with a work in harmony.

    ◆ < 일루미네이션 >  

    Fourth is “Illuminations,” a new OTT series by Jung Se Rang, the current hottest novelist in Korea and the Netflix original “보건교사 안은영”. It is a full-fledged K-POP drama that guides the growth pains of idol group members, the struggles of professional characters surrounding them, and the world of K-POP, which has been loved by the world beyond Asia through their narratives. Through collaboration with top artists and creators at home and abroad, such as SM Entertainment, the drama will be presented.


    The representative of KEYEAST said, “The first four works of the first lineup that we unveiled are currently undergoing last-minute negotiations open to all business possibilities with global OTT as well as domestic platforms. From 2020, KEYEAST's drama business has entered a full swing. In line with the changing times this year, while various materials and experimental attempts are still continuing, we are trying to make it a year of leap forward to firmly establish itself as a comprehensive entertainment group that adds content studios from the traditional actor's family. Please look forward to it.”
