I’m not going to lie, this news struck me as weird. I’m racking my brain, has Seungri acted before? (Those drama parodies BigBang used to do DO NOT count.) For some reason, I’m picturing him as a cast member of The Producer? Was he in that? Or am I just wildly making sh*t up again?
You know, as I do.
The thing starts to make more sense when one finds out, yes it’s a Netflix show, but it’s a Netflix show produced by YG, called YG Future Strategy Office. And in it, Seungri will be playing a someone (honestly, I don’t know if it’s himself or not) who gets assigned to the future straegy office and realizes he must save YG–from what? Some sort of evil doer? Bad financial planning? The YG basement?
Inside my brain, I’m wondering doesn’t YG also rep actors? Like top-notch actors? I mean, I guess it makes sense considering Seungri now has a lot of time on his hands with 3 out of 5 of his bandmates either in the military or military bound. But couldn’t his time be better served…by serving? (Seriously, anyone else out there just want Daesung and Seungri to suck it up and go to the military so all of BigBang can come out at the same time? Go in, do your bid-ness, come out and get to business…making more music? Come on boys, do it for the fans, you know you wanna!)
I say all this though, when I’m really embarrassed to admit, I’ll probably check it out when it comes out for 3 very important reasons.
- The show sounds like it might be fun? Maybe. Possibly. Unless it gets over the top slapsticky which it looks like it might just from the poster–in which case? I’m out.
- Seungri seems like he might be a good fit for this part. I can actually see him being an office worker in my head? You know the one who leans on the water cooler with his coffee mug in one hand, wriggling his eyebrows at the ladies who walk by? You know that one, right? You can see it now too, can’t you?? Come on, admit it.
- I actually have access to a Netflix account and we should probably try and support these joint ventures. Continue getting the kdrama name out there?
There is no date as of yet for the drama (or they are calling it a sitcom (so yeah, bring on the slapstick) but we do know it will be 8 episodes and will be on Netflix so no take backsies…no matter how much we ask. 🙂
