Victory Contents Co., Ltd. and Mountain Movement Story, the production companies behind the upcoming drama Four Men, confirmed on August 25 that After School’s Nana will headline the said series alongside Park Hae-jin. The mystery romance drama will center on her character, Yeo-rin, who lost her lover and meets someone with a physical appearance similar to him. She then becomes involved in unexpected events and finds out about the existence of a pair of twins who look exactly the same as her boyfriend.
Nana’s character is a police officer armed with expertise in boxing and judo. Described as a detective with a strong sense of justice, she is expected to have a lot of action scenes in the drama while chasing offenders. The actress is attending martial arts classes for this reason, in an effort to portray her character more convincingly. She is a current member of the girl group After School who took her first acting role in the 2014 movie, Fashion King, and made her first drama role in last year’s The Good Wife in which her performance received positive reviews. While Four Men is her first major TV project, it is the fourth for actor Park Hae-jin who recently starred in Man to Man and headlined Cheese in the Trap in 2016 and Bad Guys in 2014. The actor was cast for the role more than a year ago, during about the same time his casting for Man to Man was finalized. He will play four characters in the drama including Jung Il-hoon, a secretary for a large company.
Four Men boasts of a unique storyline that is “difficult to find in existing Korean dramas” and several important messages for the viewers. The casting, writing of the screenplay, and detailing of the shooting scenes are still underway. The production team of the drama is doing the necessary preparations for the shooting that will begin in November and is eyeing to pre-produce the drama completely for a broadcast in the first half of 2018.
