Park Sung-woong’s chicken run in new Man to Man teaser
Park Hae-jin’s (Cheese in the Trap) latest drama, Man to Man, looks like it’ll be a mix of everything awesome: a little bit of action, a little bit of comedy, and a whole lot of bromance. In the newly released teaser, the unlikely relationship between top Hallyu star Park Sung-woong (Remembers—Son’s War) and ghost agent Park Hae-jin is shown to begin with a rocky start.
The premise of the story is that Park Hae-jin somehow ends up as Park Sung-woong’s bodyguard, and together they end up going through fun but dangerous adventures and emotional events with each other. Most of the Man to Man promo featuring Park Hae-jin so far have shown intense action-thriller scenes of him doing elite agent stunts, but this new teaser has Park Sung-woong flexing his comedic muscles, playing the popular celebrity actor who rose to stardom by portraying prickly movie villain but who is actually a tender-hearted person.
At the beginning of the teaser, Park Sung-woong leans into a kiss, then compliments the actress on her performance when the director yells cut. Then we see a little bit more of him working: at a script reading where he dramatically yells “hardboiled action-romance noir,” at a photoshoot, and coming out of his cabin. In his voiceover he says, “I became famous because of my looks” and “When I do well, the project does well,” explaining his claim to fame.
Then he meets strait-laced Park Hae-jin, who is undercover as Park Sung-woong’s bodyguard. With his limited English skills, Park Sung-woong mistakenly introduces Park Hae-jin as his soulmate, which prompts a look of distaste from the soulmate. Someone tells Park Hae-jin to deal with it because there’s no other choice but to stay close to Park Sung-woong.
The actor seems excited to get closer to his new bodyguard because he says: “From now on, there will be no secrets between us.” The ending scene shows Park Sung-woong jogging through the streets, holding what looks to be a chicken leg, which he brings to Park Hae-jin. Park Hae-jin’s voiceover concludes: “There is something about this mission that doesn’t feel quite right.”
JTBC Friday-Saturday drama Man to Man will begin airing on April 21, after the end of Strong Woman Do Bong-soon.
