A new batch of teaser clips and posters have been released for the upcoming drama Modern Farmer. In this new show, Lee Hong Ki will star as the leader of the band "Excellent Souls", aka EXO (which is not to be confused with the actual band EXO). 

For reasons still unknown, Hong Ki's rock group end up living in the middle of nowhere, where we presume that they take up farming. This wacky premise, along with the latest images, promise a lighthearted comedy filled with some hilarious hijinks. What's not to love about watching Hong Ki play an exaggerated version of his already awesome self?

Caption: “You have to at least carry something like this to be the leader of a rock band.”

Modern Farmer's cast also includes Park Min Woo (Flower Boy Ramen Shop) as the keyboardist, Lee Shi Un (Answer Me 1997) as the bass guitarist, and Kwak Dong Yeon as the drummer.

I love how they splice together footage of the actual band EXO with the drama characters to help introduce the show. I can't wait to see how this all plays out! 

Be sure to tune in when Modern Farmer premieres on DramaFever on October 11. You can sign up for new episode alerts HERE.
