Story of a Man to follow the Boys on KBS
News has been sparse on KBS’s new drama Story of a Man [남자이야기], which will be the next vehicle for On Air‘s Park Yong-ha and La Dolce Vita‘s Park Shi-yeon.
The plot sounds rather more like a thriller film than a drama, centering around a rich prodigal son who finds himself taken in by a scam that bankrupts his father’s company. He vows revenge and transforms into a cold and hardened mergers & acquisitions specialist. Park Shi-yeon plays the girlfriend who takes a job at a hostess bar to help him repay his debts.
In this case, though, the production team is stirring more interest than the leads, particularly in its scriptwriter Song Ji-nah, who is penning her follow-up to MBC’s blockbuster series Legend but who is probably best known for the seminal ’90s drama Sandglass. Directing is Yoon Sung-shik of Dae Jo Young.
The drama is set for a March start, following the just-premiered Boys Before Flowers on Mondays and Tuesdays.
