YesAsia Editorial Description

From the makers of the popular Lovers trilogy comes the trendy melodrama On Air which takes you behind the scenes of a fictional television drama, revealing fascinating details about what normally goes on behind a TV drama production. Boasting an impressive roster of stars, On Air was one of the highest-rated dramas in Korea during the first season of 2008. Hailed by critics for its craftsmanship and realism, On Air revolves around four entertainment industry figures - a director, a writer, an actress, and her manager - as their personal and professional lives intertwine during the shooting of a drama. Kim Ha Neul (Romance) melts into her role as a beloved actress with a spiteful streak off-camera. Her nemesis is the quirky, eccentric screenwriter played by Song Yoon Ah (Jail Breakers) who caused quite a stir with her exaggerated acting. Though overshadowed by two strong female leads, Park Yong Ha (Winter Sonata) manages to work his charm as a visionary director, while Lee Bum Soo (Surgeon Bong Dal Hee) delivers the goods playing a manager who is determined to make his star the next Jeon Do Yeon.

Call it guts or sheer arrogance, but Korea's sweetheart Oh Seong Ah (Kim Ha Neul) just declined to accept the Grand Prize at the live broadcast of SBC's year-end awards, all because she was named a co-winner. How can there be two Grand Prize winners? Such a diva act would end anyone else's career, but not Oh Seong Ah's, as fans loudly applaud her courage. Then Oh Seong Ah pulls yet another stunt by switching from her current sleazy hotshot manager (Lee Hyung Cheol) to a near-bankrupt manager (Lee Bum Soo). Meanwhile, bestselling scriptwriter (Song Yoon Ah), popular for her cliche-ridden dramas, faces a great challenge when a newbie director (Park Yong Ha) proposes a fresh new concept taken from an award-winning drama she wrote a long time ago.

On Air pulled off a major casting coup not only with its leads, but also with its record-breaking 27 cameo appearances. The drama's writer and director used their Lovers series connection to lure in such mega stars as Jeon Do Yeon and real-life couple Kim Jung Eun and Lee Seo Jin. Song Yoon Ah also brought in her celebrity friends like Lee Hyo Ri, Kang Hye Jung, Uhm Ji Won, and comedian Kim Jae Dong. Dubbed as a blueprint for TV drama production, On Air shows the gritty side of show business and explores a multitude of critical steps along the production pathway, including brainstorming, scriptwriting, casting, budget, shooting, soundtrack production, promotion, and interacting with network studios, management companies, and third-party investors.

* 기획의도

- 21세기 대한민국은 드라마 왕국이다.
아침엔 '아침 드라마' 매일매일 '일일드라마' 월화엔 '월화드라마' 수목엔 '미니시리즈' 금요일엔 '금요드라마' 주말엔 '주말드라마'. 일년 365일 브라운관은 쉴 틈이 없다. 그로 인해 새로운 문화집단이자 소비집단으로 등장한 '드라마 페인'들은 케이블, 지역방송, VOD 서비스와 DVD 타이틀을 통해 드라마를 끊임없이 반복 시청하고 팬픽이란 이름으로 재생산하기도 한다. 게다가 이제 한국 드라마는 한국 사람만 보는게 아니다. '한류 열풍'으로 지난 몇년간 아시아의 뜨거운 화두이자 문화산업으로 자리 잡았다. 하지만, 환영 받는 드라마는 극소수일 뿐이다.

- 드라마 왕국은 죽어가고 있다.
문제는 드라마를 만드는 내부 주체에서 시작됐다. 한류와 폐인의 광풍으로 과열화된 시장에 좀 더 빨리, 좀 더 많은 수익을 안겨주기 위해 드라마가 작품이 아니라 공산품으로 변하기 시작한 것이다. 드라마의 기획과 내용은 그 나물에 그 밥인 경우가 허다해졌고, 리얼리티란 찾아 볼 수가 없어졌다. 비주얼만 그럴싸한 선남선녀들이 이름과 직업만 바꿔 끊임없이 자극적인 연애행각을 벌이는게 한국드라마의 정체성이 되어버린것이다. 냉정하고 솔직한 시청자들은 이제 드라마가 지겹다고 한다. 지금 이 순간에도 수많은 드라마들이 한자리수 시청률표를 받아들고 쓸쓸히 퇴장하고 있다. 그야말로 드라마의 위기다.

- 헌데, 이런 위기속에서 왜 드라마를 위기에 빠뜨린 사람들은 번성하지 않는걸까.
결국 드라마를 이 지경으로 만든건 드라마를 만드는 사람등리다. 하여, 이 작품은 그들 속으로 들어가 보기로 한다. 그동안 드라마 제작진, 작가, 감독, 배우, 기타 스태프를 등장시키는 드라마는 많았다. 허나, 결국 그것 또한 방송국에서 연애하는 이야기로 끝날 수 밖에 없었다. 한국 드라마의 치명적 결함으로 불리는 '생방송 드라마'는 어떤 상황속에서 만들어지는지, 그 중심에 놓인 작가와 감독, 배우와 스태프들은 물리적인 시간과 어떻게 처절한 싸움을 하는지 생생히 보여질 것이다. 또한 배우와 소속사, 연예계 루머를 둘러싼 비하인드 스토리는 시청자의 눈길을 고정시킬 것이다.

Boring Customer Review Rated Bad 0 - 0 out of 10
The last reviewer was right. I bought this drama, from a korean store, and was bored to tears. I only made it to episode 7, and just got tired of watching it, so I never even finished it. It was just not grabbing my attention, what a disapoint.

very boring Customer Review Rated Bad 2 - 2 out of 10
What a boring drama! Kim might look a little prettier at times but it was a joke to see her in school uniform. Soong's expressions are so often vastly emphasized, enough to drive you nuts. On the whole, the series is dull and unattractive.

Fantastic Show Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The best since WInter Sonata. This is indeed one must watch Korean Drama after so many years. Different
from the typical incurable diseases, accidental death storylines, this is refreshing with a dash of comedy.
Park Yong Ha is still as handsome as ever!!

EXCELLENT DRAMA! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This new drama is about the behind the scenes of TV drama production. It also portrays how the whole production team and performers complete a project in a tight schedule and as well as how actors, actresses, and entertainment agencies handle rumors surrounding them. Jang Ki Joon is a manager who is in charge of the activities of many famous actors and actresses and one of them is Oh Seung Ah who is a rising actress. Lee Kyung Min is a drama PD, and Seo Young Eun is a script writer with a young son.

I LOVE THIS DRAMA SO MUCH! YOU SHOULD'NT MISS THIS ONE!
