SBS revives Four Men with You From Another Star PD
It’s baaacck. And with a new director! SBS has decided to revive Four Men, the prequel to Park Hae-jin’s previous drama Man to Man. I’m quite surprised that the station backtracked just under a month after it first announced it would shelve the project, but I’m not complaining, especially since PD Jang Tae-yoo will be making his directorial comeback with this show.
It seems like the cast hasn’t left the project either, thankfully, meaning Park Hae-jin will still be mind-bogglingly playing four different characters in the show. His personas include the detective heroine’s dead lover, twins who suddenly appear before her, and another mysterious identity. Nana (The Good Wife) will portray that detective heroine role, with Kyung Su-jin (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju) as her reporter friend. Kwak Shi-yang (Chicago Typewriter) will play another detective, as well as a friend of Park Hae-jin’s character, though we don’t know which one of the four it will be.
I won’t go so far as to say that I think PD Jang Tae-yoo is a step up from the previously attached director PD Oh Jin-seok (My Sassy Girl, Yong-pal), but I do prefer PD Jang’s list of credits, which include Painter of the Wind, Tree With Deep Roots, and You From Another Star. PD Jang must have enjoyed working with Park Hae-jin as well: The director has been working in China since the alien-celebrity love story became such a huge hit, but agreed to make a Korean drama comeback after Park Hae-jin reached out to him.
Four Men is back on track to start filming in November, and will be 100 percent pre-produced. SBS hasn’t yet given an airdate for the show, but with production getting back into gear, let’s hope we hear more updates soon!
