Netflix Original Man x Man

K-drama and Park Hae-jin lovers are going to jump for joy over this piece of news. Netflix has signed an exclusive international licensing agreement with JTBC for the network’s new Friday/Saturday TV series MAN x MAN, premiering on 21 April 2017.

HTBC is a South Korean nationwide general cable TV and broadcasting company.

MAN x MAN isn’t just a Netflix Original, it also has the distinction of being Netflix’s first simulcast of a Korean drama in over 20 languages. Except for Korea and the US, the TV series will stream globally to millions of Netflix subscribers, the same time it premieres on JTBC. In the US, Man x Man will be aired in two parts – each part consisting of eight episodes each.

As a primer, Man x Man is a new series directed by producer Chang-min Lee, who worked on popular K-drama series like Giant, Bride of the Sun, Birth of a Beauty, and Remember: War of the Son.

Man x Man stars Park Hae-jin, whom some of you may recognize and swoon over, from My Love from the Star, Bad Guys, and Cheese in the Trap.

The TV series tells the story of Kim Seol Woo (played by Park Hae-jin), who “becomes a ghost bodyguard for a top hallyu star, the secret ‘men’ who surround him, and their mysterious exploits.”

The unprecedented global simultcast will bring the Korean show to over 93 million subscribers across 190 countries in over 20 languages.
