“Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” has undeniably broke ratings record in JTBC cable channel. And because of this, Park Hae Jin’s upcoming drama series titled “Man to Man” are feeling the burden of carrying out the same success.

During the press conference of “Man to Man,” the casts and crew of the newest series have talked about their feelings for the upcoming release of the drama which followed Park Bo Young and Park Hyung Sik’s “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon.”

It is good to note that “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” has consistently maintained massive ratings throughout its run and rewrote the history of JTBC by becoming the most watched drama of the network.

“”Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” achieved greater results than anyone had anticipated. I would be lying if I said that we don’t feel burdened by it; however, that drama was very helpful in establishing JTBC’s presence in that time slot,” the PD of “Man to Man,” Lee Won Suk said. “Although we are envious of the viewer ratings that ‘Strong Woman Do Bong Soon’ received, “Man to Man” is a drama that has a very different tone and so viewers will be able to experience something new through this drama.”

The PD added that though the drama is a spy series, it is actually comedic and melodrama in nature. He further added that viewers will be able to watch the drama series comfortably and they will absolutely love the plot story.

Moreover, “Man to Man” will also feature the cameo appearance of “Descendants of the Sun” actor, Song Joong Ki.

“Man to Man” stars Park Hae Jin, Park Sung Woong, Chae Jun An, Yeon Jung Hoon and Kim Min Jung. It is the first ever Korean drama series to be broadcasts internationally through streaming service Netflix.

“Man to Man” will take over the previous time slot of “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” on JTBC.
