Woman + Man × Man + Woman + Man + Man for Man to Man

JTBC has released a few new posters and one new character description for its upcoming drama Man to Man, and I love them to bits. Man to Man has a kind of quirky hard-to-define genre mashup that looks like a nice mix between James Bond and Mission: Impossible with a little Get Smart thrown in, and it’ll be exciting to see if it all comes together.

The drama will be about an unusual bromance between Park Hae-jin (Cheese in the Trap) and Park Sung-woong (Remember—Son’s War). The way they styled him in the posters makes Park Hae-jin’s character, Kim Seol-woo, look every bit the elite ghost agent that he is. Seol-woo has a 100-percent success rate with each mission and never compromises his identity. On the other hand, Park Sung-woong’s character Yeo Woon-kwang is a badass Hallyu star on TV, but the difference between how he’s styled in the first poster and the second makes it seem like perhaps he’s hiding a not-so-badass personality in real life.

The third poster hints at the potential romance between Park Hae-jin and Kim Min-jung (Master of Trade—Inn 2015), who plays Cha Do-ha, Park Sung-woong’s No. 1 dyed-in-the-wool fan since high school. She has climbed the mountain of fandom and is now a manager for her oppa. Her fangirl spidey sense is on point, because she is the first to notice something is amiss with his new bodyguard. However, I’m sure she didn’t expect to get swept off her feet by him.

The group poster presents the main cast of Man to Man in all its glory. On the far left is Chae Jung-ahn (Entertainer) who plays the elegant Song Mi-eun. Song Mi-eun climbed up the social ladder when she went from promising actress to the wife of third generation chaebol Mo Seung-jae, played by Yeon Jung-hoon (Mask). She’s a glamorous woman who has a secret wound from a past relationship, while her husband is an ambitious chaebol who will be the source of evil in our drama.

And finally, on the far right and rounding out the main cast we have a new character! Jung Man-shik (Neighborhood Hero, Asura) plays Lee Dong-hyun, a former National Intelligence Service agent who is Park Hae-jin’s strongest ally. He is described as a very elusive character with a big presence who will add additional layers of fun and tension to the drama. All the characters are said to have interweaving storylines with each other, which will hopefully lead to some hilariously unpredictable moments.

JTBC’s Man to Man is written by Kim Won-seok (second writer on Descended From the Sun) and directed by Lee Chang-min (Remember–Son’s War). It will air at 11 pm on Fridays and Saturdays beginning April 21, following the end of Strong Woman Do Bong-soon.

You guys should check out all the teaser videos and behind the scenes they have on the V App. It amps up the anticipation even more. Bring it on. Netflix, for the love of God, do not mess up the distribution of this drama.

Netflix offers one free month subscription when you sign up. Since I'm in the States I'll have to watch on Netflix too. Still haven't seen a confirmed airing date (for the two 8-episodes installments) for the States.

Netflix is hiring translators.
While reading about the recent exclusive acquisition of rights to jTBC's "Man to Man" by Netflix, I found this article and thought of the Dramabeans community, the diversity of languages spoken by users, and thought perhaps someone may benefit from the information from this article.

At first i thought this drama was going to be more serious and gritty (a genre which i'm avoiding lately) but after seeing the teasers + posters the humor is winning me over so i'm looking forward to watch this after Bong Soon ends.

I am so utterly predictable. It's a little lowering to realize that you're really that shallow, but I am such a sucker for a slick, well-dressed, well-tailored man with a mysterious past and (presumably) painful secrets beating up bad guys. I'm even totally okay with morally ambiguous, but it's even better if his character arc includes heroic self-sacrificing redemption.

I am so in for this drama. Please don't suck, Show!

the flowery pants remind me of how we made paper dolls in the museum based on formal navy uniforms, but since I couldn´t find a photo reference that featured feet, the kids drew pink jeggins instead of uniform pants. it feels like they are rushing to an interview and he´s been told "Just dress up above the waist, no one will see "downstairs".

Very much looking forward to this, as I've always loved watching Park Hae-jin. He is a very good actor and a really good-looking one on top of that!

After seeing all the posters and watching the teasers (the latest one was just released this morning), seems like this drama will be more comedic than I thought it will be. I hope it will be a nice balance between a serious and comedic tone. Park Hae-jin as an angsty, tortured hero would be lovely. ?

Weird decision to have Park Hae Jin hold the pistol in that way in the first poster. Surefire way to get himself a bullet through his brain. Just sayin'.
