Casting has definitely progressed for JTBC’s upcoming drama “Man to Man”, starring Park Sung Wong and Park Hae Jin. The network is working on their last addition to the project in the name of Kim Min Jung. Sources are saying that the actress has all but signed on the dotted line, and that it’s just a matter of formality.
The drama is about a popular movie star (Park Sung Woong) who has mastered the art of playing the villain on screen. However, he also harbors a painful past in his real life. Park Hae Jin will play a special agent who disguises as a bodyguard to shadow Park Sung Woong. Chae Jung Ahn will appear in the drama as the wife of a very powerful chaebol (Yeon Jung Hoon), who still has feeling for Park Sung Woong. If Kim Min Jung accepts the role, she will play a fan girl who was fortunate enough to actually land a job working for her idol, Park Sung Woong. She gets entangled between the two male leads after she meets his mysterious new bodyguard.
This drama is sounding more and more appealing. This will be a new kind of role for Park Hae Jin, so I am looking forward to seeing what he does as a special agent doubling as a bodyguard. There is no word yet on when the drama will air, but most likely it will be in the first half of 2017
