Man to Man teases James Bond cat and mouse games

It’s finally here—the first teaser for JTBC’s new spy bromance drama Man to Man. It’s a frustratingly teensy glimpse at the two leads, but am I going to complain about Park Hae-jin (Cheese in the Trap) and Park Sung-woong (Remember–Son’s War) in tuxedos? I think not.

The pre-produced series from PD Lee Chang-min (Remember–Son’s War) and writer Kim Won-seok (second writer on Descended From the Sun) is a comic-melo-spy-action mashup about a secret agent who becomes a bodyguard to an actor. Park Hae-jin stars as a mysterious ghost agent with elite black ops training, and for reasons unknown his mission is to act as a bodyguard to a Hallyu star. Park Sung-woong co-stars as the actor whose claim to fame is playing badass villains, and he’s got secrets of his own that threaten his future.

Rounding out the main cast is Kim Min-jung (Gap-dong) as Park Sung-woong’s biggest fan who actually goes from being his fanclub president to working as his manager. Yeon Jung-hoon (Mask) plays a chaebol heir with insatiable greed and ambition who will become a foe to our heroes, and Chae Jung-ahn (Entertainer) plays his wife.

The show’s first teaser has Park Hae-jin and Park Sung-woong playing a cat and mouse game through a funhouse of mirrors, each in sleek tuxedos like they’re in the middle of a James Bond movie. It paints Park Sung-woong in a very mysterious light to have him chased by Park Hae-jin and evade capture at every turn, but I love the imagery of Park Hae-jin surrounded by all these reflections. Even more intriguing is the very end, when he shoots at the moving target only to come face to face with… himself? Great, now I’m suspicious of everyone…

Man to Man follows Strong Woman Do Bong-soon on Fridays and Saturdays beginning April 21.

jTBC had really great drama last year and all deserved more recognition. I hope jTBC wont just do the drama for the sake if the rating as well, I see Strong Woman started following the path.

JTBC is the new TvN.

Previously I feel like I can trust TvN for quality shows (until Cinderella and 4 Knights happened), now I can trust JTBC too.

If you look carefully around the 5 second mark, they keep switching tuxedos. It looks like they're stealing each others clothes. That's why it switches from black to white and back.

Park Hae-jin is chasing Park Sung-woong because he's tired of this tuxedo switching game. As an elite black ops agent, it's hard to stay inconspicuous when you're handsome AND your suit changes color every 2 seconds. (Also, you can't be black ops and wear white!)

In the end, PHJ shoots at PSW, damaging the tuxedo stealing technology. So PSW steals PHJ's face instead.

But he's so delicious when he's chanelling his inner Chuck Bass like in Mask. He was the only reason I can finish Mask and why I will be tuning in to this new drama. I am in the minority that found Sunbae in CITT to be just meh (but maybe it's the writer / pd (?)'s fault?).

On Yeong Jung hoon, he was definitely yummy and delicious in Mask, he and Yoo In Young basically the onky reason I watched ut until the end. The main couple were so meh. He was also delicious in Ms Temper & Nam Jung Ki although just played supporting role / extended cameo.

Saw the trailer Yesterday. Not impressed at all.

The trailer lacks creativity and nothing much was shown. The real bit was last 5 sec which directly correlates with the story.

Well, if i never saw you in every article merely involve Park Hae Jin badmouthing him , this would be much much more convincing. You hate the guy for some reasons and wouldnt watch the drama any way.
But one or a few hater dont matter, never do.

Why do certain fandom act so insecure? Why do they see everything in Black and White? Someone is already deciding my future watchlist.

Come on, hardly remember the guys name. People have eyes, and we saw you, everywhere.
This is drama land, we talk about the acting, the character and the plot, its not about the fandom. Whatever you do only make you and your idol look bad. It's not phj or his fan fault that your beloved Entourage flop that hard.
Leave the guy alone.
You are so ridiculous.
This is definition of a troll.

I am basically copy + paste the difference between teaser and trailer, I also used to confused. lol.

"A teaser is a type of trailer. One that is released first, usually several months ahead of a film's opening. The purpose as its name suggests is to create intrigue, pique curiosity or "tease". The trailer (or trailers) that come out later, that more or less tell you what the film is about is typically referred to as a launch trailer."

Yes I will watch for these three hot guys. But why Kim Min Jung as among the main casts? I hope i will finally open up with her acting. sigh. Anyway Cha Jung An is among my favourite and already looking forward to see her with Yeong Jung hoon.

Was just gonna say, Bong-soon's a bodyguard, Park Hae-jin's a bodyguard, everyone's a bodyguard! Ha, but this one comes after Bong-soon.

But hey, they'll released a few bts videos of Park Hae-jin in action, so there's more goodies out there, if anyone's interested. It's on yt and v app.

Pre-produced?

Pft... I'm still nervous.

Since it's Park Hae-jin, they'll probably ‎figure out some way to call for reshoots halfway through to introduce Seo Kang-joon as some young, handsome, tortured rookie spy. Story will refocus on his Edwardian (Twilight, not the king) struggles and we'll get some plot explanation that Park Hae-jin's been reassigned to office duty or some such nonsense.

Yea, super optimistic...

But even if you believe that, c'mon... Bad acting is basically never the reason for something like that happening. Bad acting, much worse than PHJ's or SKJ's, plagues dramaland everywere and nothing is changed to compensate for it.

Required fields are marked *

I'm confused by your comment.

PHJ (the main lead opposite KGE) basically got sideline in CITC to make room for SKJ's character (the second lead).

My comment was a joke expressing fake worry that they'd figure out a way to do the same here, with SKJ no less.

It has nothing to do with either man's acting ability.

(Besides I actually liked SKJ in CITC. I just didn't want him to be the lead in place of PHJ.)

---

Anyway, perhaps the fact that I'm having to explain the joke means it wasn't very good.

Again... Alas...

I'll try harder next time!

Nah, i found your joke pretty fun. I know that your joke are on the ridiculous of that situation not on any actors that you mention.
@sam: take your chill pill, will you. It's just a joke, for fun you know . Nobody hating on your golden boy here. And you already hate phj and blame it all on him so let the poor girl have a laugh.

I share the same opinion. I was jTBC girl last year, so I want to stay the same this year. With quality like last year or better I hope. The reason I love most jTBC drama because they didnt go to cliche romance and story. I look forward to this drama, it seems intriguing.

He looks so good I'm screaming! But bc of the way the trailer is I'm thinking that the actor is a bad guy and then that'll set up the conflict between PHJ and the female lead pretty easily.

Also they keep switching tux colors and it might just be bc I don't have my glasses on but if we follow the colors it makes it seem like PHJ in white is following the black-tux version of himself which just makes me think that the actor guy has a similar background/history as PHJ and I'm definitely overthinking it

Oh Park Hae-Jin... I JUST got back to a normal sleeping schedule after working the graveyard shift for over a year and you're going to mess that all up aren't you?

I feel like I'm gonna go back to my rookie kdrama addict days, constantly looping the two major questions that rule over my existence: do I love sleep more or do I love watching that beautiful man more? It's like the worst "Would you rather" game of all times, ha!
