Man of Honor releases poster, more stills

I’d known Man of Honor was about baseball, and that it was from the Baker King producers, but it wasn’t till I took a good look at these latest stills that the story and conflict really sunk in.

And now that it has: Aw, man — it’s a sports drama and a total underdog success story? I know those two things tend to go together, but again, it’s one thing to know it intellectually, and another thing to put facts with faces. Cute, dejected, sad faces. Just look at that hang-dog, lonely look on Chun Jung-myung’s face and try resisting pulling for him. It’s a losing battle. He’s Tak-gu, but in a uniform and with bigger fists.

The love triangle at the center revolves around Chun’s hero character, his rival Lee Jang-woo (also a chaebol’s son), and the bright and irrepressible heroine played by Park Min-young. I’d expect a few more romantic entanglements from other supporting characters (there’s Lee Jin, for one, hanging out in the cast), but based on promo material, this looks to be a three-top drama.

There’s also an extensive cast, and I’m betting there’s quite a bit of parental angst thrown into the mix. The supporting actors include: Choi Myung-gil, who appears to have gone from scary bitchface mom in Miss Ripley to a warmer version here as the hero’s mother; the always wonderful Lee Ki-young as the hero’s noodle-shop-owning father; Sohn Chang-min, out of his soldier’s uniform from last year’s Road No. 1 to play a chaebol CEO; High Kick 3‘s patriarch Ahn Nae-sang as the heroine’s father; hilarious character actress Jang Young-nam (Hello Ghost) as her mother; Choi Ran (she of most of the Hong Sisters dramas) as the heroine’s “fascist-like” nurse supervisor; Kim Sung-oh, who can play creepy or dorky with equal skill; and Lee Moon-shik.

Man of Honor premieres on Wednesday on KBS.

I like the main lead and I loved Baker King Kim Tak Goo, but this drama doesn't look as interesting to me. I never watched a sport drama before and I'm not quite into baseball either... I might have to skip this drama.

Tree With Deep Roots looks more interesting to me and I still have to finish City Hunter (I decided to watch The Princess' Man instead, which was totally worth it!!!) and You've Fallen For Me (which I might drop because my sister said it wasn't that good).

Tree with deep roots is somewhat disappointing for me. A saguek without love story is hard to watch.

I don't know makjang or not, TakGu 2.0 or not, but JangWoo is getting hotter and hotter with every single day >.<
I'm so going to watch it just for his sexy gaze (the fact he's going to be evil there doesnt make me happy, but what can I do? *sigh* hope he won't stick with characters like this, second evil chaebol in a row =()

Loving the main cast. CJM is freaking adorable and Jang Woo looks awfully yummy. And of course PMY is a stunner too. Definitely going to put this on my to watch list.

I love sports shows, but I'm just not into the whole makjang thing. I'm hoping this won't be one, but chances are it will be one in some form or another.

I'm not sure where to put this, but here goes. Thank you very much for all your efforts in posting drama news and recaps.

My only point of complaint would be that there's not enough recaps for dramas as of late; the last three pages have seen only four recaps. It would be nice to read your thoughts/opinions on the current drama series airing this season.

I am so tempted to watch this Baker thing everyone keeps comparing this to, but I don't want to be prejudiced against this show.
As long as their is PIE, I will watch it. I even watched The Duo and there was only like two mins and 13 seconds of romance.

PIE + romance = time well spent.

I hope the subbers like it, too, so it gets completed fast. If nobody is recapping it, I guess I can wait. But I hate to miss out on the discussion while it is appearing on the page.
That is half the fun of watching a show like My Princess or Secret Garden.

K, I'm watching this. Ya know I had no clue this was a baseball sports drama. Well, actually I didn't know anything about it other than the title is a play on the characters names.

i will surely watch this thru KBS world. Oh,,... 3 days more and I will be in front of the tv for me to watch this. I will watch this because of PMY. If I can't watch there's another prerogative.. the epdrama and yt and dramastyle. Hope the subbers will sub this fast!

Sorry for sidetracking from the post again but I just saw another video which is older, don't understand much korean but am still grinning away at Mr CJM's dorkiness. OPPAAAA WHY ARE YOU SO CUTE? HAHAHAHA.

I first came across Chun Jung-myung in Cinderella's Sister and am smitten ever since by his warm smile BUT now that I've seen how dorky he is IRL, omg, the fangirl in me is taking over me. AHHH! It's just too bad that this new show is a melo. Sigh. :(

If you're not too familiar with how sports dramas are, I do suggest checking out the sport genre of J-dramas. I think they've got some of the best. I would highly recommend watching H2: Kimi To Ita Hibi. That is a sports drama done right imo.

Not a fan of PMY acting , but the boys look interesting. I am a little leery of sports drama. Tried watching Birdie Buddy, but couldn't finish it. Golf was too boring. Is baseball more interesting?
