“Comedy Big League” on tvN recently celebrated its 5th anniversary.
At the center of the series’ success is chief producer Kim Sock-hyun, a former producer at the Korea Broadcasting System (KBS) who directed Korea’s oldest TV comedy program “Gag Concert.”
Gag Concert once ruled the small screen in the early 2000s followed by its competitor “Smile People” on SBS throughout the latter half of the decade. However, both shows lost popularity due to mundane and repetitive content overused by the same comedians.
