Lee Jang Woo, T-ara Eunjung’s virtual husband on “We Got Married” is confirmed to play the third wheel to Park Min Young and Chun Jung Myung in the upcoming “Man of Honor.” His character, Seo In Woo, is the bad-tempered heir to a major sports clothing brand and a hitter with a professional baseball team.
“Man of Honor” is about the struggle for success in the midst of facing difficulties. Chun plays Kim Young Kwang, also a professional baseball player but is on the reserve team. An injury puts him in the path of Park’s character, Yoon Jae In, an aide who aspires to become a full registered nurse.
The drama is in the hands of the team behind 2010’s ratings giant “Baker Kim Tak Goo,” director Lee Jung Seob and scenarist Kang Eun Kyung.
Prior to “We Got Married,” Lee’s last small screen appearance was a role in 2010’s “Smile, Dong Hae.” He was also a part of the project trio 24/7 with Noh Min Woo and Hyun Woo.
“Man of Honor” replaces “The Princess Man” on KBS in October.
