Though we won’t be seeing Song Joong Ki taking on the lead role on the small screen anytime soon, K-Drama fans can catch a glimpse of him in JTBC (제이티비씨)’s upcoming drama, “Man To Man” (맨투맨), as the actor will be making a special cameo.
The drama, which is slated for release early next year, is penned by Kim Won Suk, who is also the writer for this year’s hit series, “Descendants of the Sun”(태양의 후예). It was reported that Song will be portraying an assistant director and his role is described as “short but impactful”.
“Man To Man” centres around a superstar (played by Park Sung Woong) and his bodyguard (played by Park Hae Jin). The drama also stars Kim Min Jung, Yeon Jung Hoon, Chae Jung Ahn, Jang Hyun Sung, and Lee Si Eun.
Like many K-Dramas this year (read: “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” and “Hwarang”), the upcoming series will be pre-produced and filming is expected to start in November in Hungary. In other news, the first script reading for the highly-anticipated drama was held on Tuesday (4th October).
Besides “Man To Man”, Song Joong Ki will also be appearing as a cameo in his best friend Lee Kwang Soo’s new web drama, “The Sound Of Your Heart” (마음의 소리).
