Seungri will star as the head of YG’s future strategy office, where many of YG’s troublemakers have purportedly been sent. Seungri and his team, including TV personality Yoo Byung-jae and Lee Jae-jin of K-pop act Sechskies, will work on regaining their standing in the company.

Other stars at YG Entertainment are to make guest appearances on the show, including Black Pink, iKon and WINNER.

The show is being directed by Park Joon-soo, known for his lower budget comedy stylings in “God of Music,” and has been written by Kim Min-seok, who took part in “SNL Korea.”
