Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Jin Gu, as the Art Director prodigy Lee Tae-baek, will portray the rise of the 'loser' with no credentials to the top of the industry. Park Ha-sun will portray the role of the intern copywriter Baek Ji-yoon of the Geumsan Ad, the industry leader in Advertising. A passionate and earnest woman, she will lead the drama as the leading lady and the love interest of Jin Gu. Han Chae-young, as the Account Executive of the Geumsan Ad Go Ah-ri, is a chic and alluring woman of success on the outside, but a cold realist who abandoned her love and past to seek her dream on the inside. A producer of the drama commented that "the title's 'Genius' does not mean talent, but rather the passion of the work enabling people to be the 'Genius' of the work. We plan the drama to be a drama depicting people's challenge towards their dreams, their struggles, and a cheer towards our viewers' efforts to their own dreams as well."
Potentially Great - Interesting Advertising Industry
Things just got much better. From what ‘ve seen from the first 4 episodes, this drama is improving every episode. Personally, the advertising industry have always interest me so this drama does catch my attention. I’m hoping that I’ll be impressed with advertising/commercial ideas and catchy effective slogans that comes out from this drama in future episodes.
Basically, it’s about Lee Tae Baek who does not have the "right education" and from a financially poor family background but very talented and determine to succeed in the advertisement industry. Based on the first two episodes, we can see that he will receive a lot help from Baek Jiyoon (Park Ha-Sun) and Ma-Jingga (Go Chan-Suk) as well as moral support from his family
Besides the four main casts who are very established actors, this drama also include 2 Kpop female idols - Han Sunhwa of Secret and Dal Shabet’s Ah Young. Sunhwa’s acts as Lee Tae Baek’s noisy, nosy but caring younger sister while Ah Young is Ma Jingga’s secretary cum graphic designer. Both of them competing for Majingga’s handsome son are a minor side story that could act as a "comedy relief" of the drama
