There is no doubt that actor Park Hae Jin is one of the busiest actors in the Korean film industry. His ongoing drama Man to Man is getting interesting episode by episode. The pre-filmed drama—aired on JTBC—has almost reached its climax and fans are on cloud nine to watch the last two episodes next week.

Man to Man also stars Park Sung-woong, Kim Min-jung, Chae Jung-an and Yeon Jung-hoon in lead roles. The drama narrates the story of a well-known actor Yeo Woon-gwang (Park Sung-woong), who majorly plays villainous roles, hires the mysterious Kim Seol-woo (Park Hae-jin), a man trained in special investigations, as his bodyguard, who is also an undercover NIS agent.

Park is currently busy with the movie version of his hit drama Cheese in the Trap. He will once again play the role of a stoic college senior, also a rich heir to the Taerang Group, who displays psychopathic tendencies. During a recent fan meet, the actor revealed that the movie version will have unique thrilling scenes than the webtoon. According to Korean Herald, he also added that fans will like the film version much more than the drama since he has a bigger share of the action.

After Cheese in the Trap, he is likely to appear as quadruplet brothers in SBS' Saja. Reportedly, the filming will begin by the end of 2017 and the broadcasting date is yet to be finalised. The drama is a mystery thriller that revolves around a female detective who discovers the quadruple brothers of the man she loved.

Park expressed his excitement over playing four different characters at the same time. He also added that he would be writing down the mannerisms of each character to avoid any confusions.

He also confessed on how he was hurt by the negative criticisms during his early days. He added: "People often said at the time that I was not good at acting but I didn't know why. But now I understand why people said that. My acting was so horrible back then. It makes me cringe!"

When quipped about his favourite genres, he stated that he prefers lonely, warm-hearted character, like Kim Seol-woo over a cheesy romantic one. He also added that he would love to play the role of a teacher and share screen space with child artists in the future.
