Park Hae-jin updated viewers on his upcoming JTBC drama series “Man to Man” in a live show via Naver V App on Saturday.
On veteran actor Park Sung-woong who was cast in the series, he said it is an honor to act with him.
Park Hae-jin featured in the 2008 TV series “East of Eden,” along with Park Sung-woong‘s wife, Shin Eun-jung.
“Park Sung-woong and I first met on the set of ‘East of Eden,’” Park said. “And this is the first time we are on the same project together.”

Park added that he is preparing for his role of a bodyguard by dieting and training for stunt performances.
“I’ve been on a diet, but these days I‘m hardly losing weight,” he said. “I should lose more because some scenes will feature me half-naked.”
The drama is set to start filming in October. The female lead has not yet been cast.
Park’s live show on Saturday was mainly designed to broadcast Park peeking into a fan club event before making a surprise visit to the venue.
The fan meeting took place in Jangchung Gymnasium on Saturday.
