Acting by top celebrities

The performances of veteran actors Lee Seo-jin and Kwak Sun-young in the lead roles are certainly unquestionable, but the on-screen chemistry between the four main characters of the series is the most refreshing when it comes to acting. Watch as their story unfolds.

Although the new story in each episode feels a bit rushed and the storyline sometimes doesn’t follow the current theme, this shortcoming can be made up for by the presence of some big Korean stars with cameo in the movie. Celebrities like Cho Yeon-jung (‘Parasite’), Claudia Kim (‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’), Oh Na-ra and Park Ho-san (‘My Mister’), to Daniel Henney, helped maintain the level of anticipation for each episode of ‘Behind Every Star’.

Not interesting but not boring

There’s so much going on in the movie that it’s impossible to focus on just one thing. Many of the personal relationships between the characters are practically impossible to create or even sustain the curiosity of witnessing them. Like the relationship between Ma Tae-oh and So Hyun-joo, who turns out to be a father and son pair.

At the beginning of the episode, we are perhaps a bit curious about how Hyun-joo was able to get to know the high-ranking officials of a large company. However, if you look at the interactions that the two characters show, it is easy to guess that Hyun Joo is Ma Tae Oh’s secret daughter. Even so, this series can still be enjoyed by the light-hearted story and some funny, funny scenes that are always present in each episode.

Potential second season

The final episode of the series closed with the organization of the Busan International Film Festival, where one of the Method Entertainment actresses became the sole host.

It wouldn’t be ‘Behind Every Star’ if it didn’t show the chaos behind the scenes. Je-in has to find another dress for Ah-joong after the actress angers a sponsor’s daughter for insulting Je-in as her manager. The lack of information and connections about designers in Busan worried the group, but then she remembered that a famous hanbok designer had a studio there.

Review Behind Every Star

Arriving at the location, Je-in’s request is denied but unexpectedly he meets Hyun-joo, who helps him get a hanbok to wear for Ah-joong. In the end, the mess was resolved. To show his gratitude, Hyun-joo is invited to the party.

There, many “crimes” and problems were revealed including Jung-doon’s spreading false rumors until Hee-sun’s first project had to be canceled, Je-in, who received it. offers to manage a company in New York, Hee-jun, who tries to prevent Je-in’s departure with the intention of buying the company, until Je-in tests positive for pregnancy. .

This series ended just like that, leaving various questions about the continuation of these managers in the future and offering the potential to be explored more deeply in the second season, truly ‘Behind Every why’ there are many potential new storylines that could be shown.
