Netflix announces Korean variety show Busted!
4th April 2018
Netflix is doubling down on its Korean comedy line-up, with a brand new variety show launching in May.
Called Busted! I Know Who You Are, the streaming giant hails it as a new type of K-variety, where 7 main cast members position themselves as bumbling detectives that set out to solve a fun-filled mystery in each of the episodes. The show features an all-star K-variety cast including Yoo Jae-suk, Lee Kwang-soo, and Kim Jong-min. Ahn Jae-wook and Park Min-young took a step out of their acting roles and made their debut in the K-variety scene, while K-pop stars Sehun of Exo and Sejeong of Gugudan took the challenge of bringing the vibrant energy into the group of detectives. The show is also filled with special appearances from guest stars in each of the episodes to help complete the story – a premise that sounds a little bit like BBC Three’s Murder in Successville.
For the new unscripted show, Netflix is teaming up with producers Jang Hyuk-jae, Cho Hyo-jin, and Kim Ju-hyung of Company SangSang, who has had a successful track record in the K-variety scene. Jang, Cho and Kim have took part in producing popular shows including Running Man and X-Man in Korea. The series joins such Korean comedy series as Men on a Mission on the platform, as well as Netflix’s first Korean stand-up comedy special, Yoo Byungjae: Too Much Information.
Busted! I Know Who You Are will premiere on 4th May, with the 10-episode season releasing two episodes a week.
