Chae Jung-ahn in talks to romance Park Sung-woong in Man to Man
Chae Jung-ahn (Entertainer) is in negotiations to be in Park Hae-jin’s (Cheese in the Trap) upcoming Man to Man. The JTBC action-thriller drama is centered around the mysterious bodyguard of a top celebrity. Park Hae-jin is set to play the secretive protector, and Park Sung-woong (Remember–Son’s War) will be his famous client, an actor who gained popularity by playing the bad guy in films and movies.
If Chae Jung-ahn joins, she will be cast as Song Mi-eun, a former Miss Korea who is currently the wife to a third-generation chaebol. With her never-aging beauty and perfectly maintained body, her character is a chic style icon amongst the fashionista crowd. After marriage, she has a son and lives the life of a devoted wife, until her husband suddenly makes demands for a divorce and her son is kidnapped. Having no one else to turn to, she goes to her past lover-turned-Hallyu-star, Park Sung-woong, for help.
Man to Man has become the focus of much media interest because of the big names attached to it. This project is helmed by PD Lee Chang-min, whose past works include Birth of a Beauty and Remember–Son’s War, which was Park Sung-woong’s last drama. The writer, Kim Won-seok, was the second writer on KBS’s hit Descended From the Sun. In addition, the action scenes for Man to Man will be choreographed by Man From Nowhere’s chief stunt director, Park Jung-ryul. There were also brief rumors that Han Ji-min would be the female lead, but those were quickly shut down by her agency, stating that she had never even received the script.
JTBC Friday-Saturday drama Man to Man plans to air in 2017.
