“Man To Man” Becomes First K-Drama To Be Broadcast Internationally Through Netflix
On April 7, Netflix officially obtained the exclusive international televising rights for JTBC’s upcoming drama “Man to Man.” This means that the drama, which will air its first episode on April 21, will be broadcast not only domestically, but also to the 190 foreign countries that Netflix services.
Episodes of “Man to Man” will be available on Netflix in Korea within an hour of the domestic broadcast while the series will be released in two 8-episode installments on Netflix in America. “Man to Man” is the first Korean drama to ever be broadcast through Netflix and will not only be available in the countries that Netflix services but will also have subtitles in over 20 different languages.
“Man to Man,” which stars actors Park Hae Jin, Park Sung Woong, and Kim Min Jung, is a drama about the “ghost” bodyguards of famous celebrities and the hidden figures that surround these agents. Despite the serious tone of the show’s log line, fans can anticipate a good amount of comedy due to the unexpected bromance between Park Hae Jin and Park Sung Woong’s characters.
JTBC’s “Man to Man” will begin airing on April 21 at 11 p.m. KST after “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” comes to an end.
