Filming Starts on jTBC Drama Man to Man with Park Hae Jin, Park Sung Woong, and Kim Min Jung

Filming is underway for the upcoming early 2017 jTBC drama Man to Man, and I like the entire cast but love the screenwriter even more.

Man to Man spins the story of a top star played by Park Sung Woong and his bodyguard Park Hae Jin. The two female leads are Kim Min Jung and Chae Jung Ahn, and Yeon Jung Hoon takes a spin as the main antagonist. The drama is fully pre-produced and directing is the PD of Remember and Birth of a Beauty. Continue reading
