Shooting Stars Season 1 Story
The show mainly focuses on how the people work in entertainment agencies and how much hard work goes into producing a successful web series or a movie. There is also a love-hate story plot between the main characters, Oh Han-byeol and Gong Tae-sung. Oh Han-byeol is the team leader of the PR team in a company named Starforce entertainment, and Gong Tae-sung is a top star, and everything of his stardom is managed by Starforce entertainment. Gong Tae-sung is publicly loved for his good looks as well as spectacular acting skills. However, he was hiding a big secret that was unleashed in the last two episodes (in the 13th and 14th episodes); his different side is mainly hidden from the public. Episode 14th synopsis: In the last week’s episode that aired on Saturday, we saw that every employee of the company Starforce entertainment was wearing black, and it seemed like they were mourning. It later is revealed that they were mourning the death of an actor Lee Yoon-woo. It was revealed that he had died by suicide, and now every person close to him was blaming himself for not being able to be there for him. Lee Yoon Woo had joined Starforce Entertainment before Tae-sung, and when they became roommates, he greeted him with a cheerful smile.
Tae-sung disliked him at first because of his enthusiasm. He assumed Yoon Woo was content since he had a supportive family, but it turns out that Yoon Woo’s family was just interested in his money. Yoon Woo worked before becoming an actor to support his family. This served as an icebreaker, and Tae-sung and Yoon Woo became friends over their familial problems. Coincidentally, all Starforce Entertainment employees have congregated at the Organic Cafe managed by Yoon Woo’s manager, Gwi-nong, who resigned after his death. Tae-sung wishes to meet Gwi-nong but is too terrified to go. Do Soo-hyuk comes with him to the cafe. He couldn’t talk to Gwi-nong, though, because of everyone. Ki-ppeum and Soo-hyuk leave the cafe since it has become an office meal. She has been crying to him since she interviewed Yoon Woo the day before he died and is wondering whether she did something wrong. Tae-sung returns to Gwi-nong alone after the party and shows him the red envelope. He informs him that he knows Gwi-nong is the one who sends him the letters. He recognizes his suffering, but he is not the only one. His employer, Han-byul, Ki-ppeum, and many others who may have spared him question if they made a mistake. The following day, the public relations team discovers that Gwi-nong is the anti-fan, but he has already surrendered and agreed to all of his hate crimes. Tae-sung, on the other hand, has opted not to punish him.
The show will end this week after two final episodes are aired; after the show ends, we might be able to tell more about whether we can expect there to be another season now. You can watch this show here on WeTv.
