MBC rounds out the cast of family comedy drama, "Man Who Dies to Live", as it confirms Shin Sung-rok, Choi Min-soo, and Kang Ye-won as the leads.
If you're excited about that cast, then brace yourself for the plot: Choi Min-soo will play Jang Dal-goo, a man who leaves Korea in the 1970s and becomes a count in a fictional Middle Eastern country named Bodantia. He comes home to reconcile with his daughter and son-in-law, played respectively by Kang Ye-won and Shin Sung-rok.
if I had to pick someone to play an eccentric count dad, Choi Min-soo would probably have been my second choice. Strangely enough, my first choice might have been Shin Sung-rok; he's played villain often enough to prove he can pull off gravitas (see "Liar Game" and "My Love from the Star"), and he's equally good at playing absurd (see "Trot Romance"). Here's hoping he's not wasted in a role that's described as handsome but boring.
"Man Who Dies to Live" is set to be a 24-episode drama, airing in the Wednesday-Thursday time slot in July after "Ruler: Master of the Mask" ends its run.
