First Impressions: Man to Man

As touted during its promotional stage, Man to Man is an action comedy, and for all intents and purposes, it's pretty good. The first episode had a lot of setup as the audience is introduced to the major players, and episode two starts to showcase the interactions between the main characters. Storywise, there's your occasional contrivance and disregard of physics which can be bothersome, but this is one of those shows where you really shouldn't try to analyze and question every detail. If you just sit back and relax, it's a breezy watch.

Park Hae-jin as Kim Sul-woo, Undercover Bodyguard
I'm relatively indifferent towards Park Hae-jin. I remember him first from Famous Chil Princesses, and haven't really developed any opinions about him. I'm sure his fans will enjoy him in this role since he's portrayed as a super suave and charismatic person. He plays the role with a good balance of confidence and aloofness, and there aren't any complaints from me.

Park Sung-woong cast in Bad Guys 2

Apparently, Park Sung-woong has been cast in Bad Guys 2 which is planning for an October release date on OCN. The source says that he's playing a homicide detective who's an ex-boxer. He doesn't care about promotions or justice, but rather, risks his life for money because of a past event.

If this is true... I suddenly got flashbacks ofHidden Identity which was just a waste of potential. Also, there hasn't been any other substantial names attached or dates given about the drama, so it is possible that Park Sung-woong might not join in the end. Well, the only good news is that the original was good and OCN tends to be better at police and noir-ish dramas than TVN. But after Signal, that might not be the case anymore. For Park Sung-woong's sake, I do hope the second season will be decent.
