Singer and actor Cha Tae-hyun will make his producer debut with the upcoming KBS drama “The Best Hit” (unofficial translation), the broadcaster announced on Wednesday.

As a producer, Cha will use the nickname Ra Joon-mo, the name of the character he played in 2015 KBS drama “The Producers.” In the drama, Ra is the main producer of the variety show “2 Days & 1 Night.”

“I had a dream to be a producer when I was young but as I work as an actor I thought ‘directing is something I can’t do,’” Cha said in a media interview. “Yet, I thought I could challenge myself here in this (production) team.”

The new drama will be co-produced by Yoo Ho-jin, who was responsible for the channel’s popular variety show “2 Days & 1 Night.” This will be Yoo’s first stab at a drama.

While Yoo will do the editing and staff controlling, Cha will direct the acting. Cha will also play a character himself in the drama.

Starring Yoon Shi-yoon, Lee Se-young and Cha Eun-woo of boy band Astro, the new drama will start filming in April and air in May.
