It’s right about time for another dark social commentary K-drama series, and Netflix will be bringing one soon with its new series, ‘Celebrity‘.
Starring actress Park Gyu Young as the female lead Seo Ah Ri, ‘Celebrity’ tells the story of a young woman who earns massive fame as an SNS influencer. However, one day, she goes live and shocks the world by announcing that she has been murdered, and that she will expose her murderer via SNS by thoroughly exposing the dark, hidden backside of celeb culture.
Alongside Park Gyu Young, CNBLUE‘s Minhyuk takes on the role of Han Jun Kyung, a third-generation chaebol who takes an interest in Seo Ah Ri; Lee Chung Ah returns to the small-screen as the woman whom everyone wants to be, Yoon Si Hyun; Lee Dong Gun plays the role of Yoon Si Hyun’s husband and the president of a giant legal firm, Jin Tae Jeon; and last but not least, Jeon Hyosung takes on the role of Ah Ri’s ex-best friend/the owner of a fashion brand, Oh Min Hye.
A shocking story of those whose lives are helplessly tangled in a web of greed, sacrificing everything to rise up the ranks of society, ‘Celebrity’ premieres on Netflix around the world on June 30.
