I know that the disturbing daddy jokes write themselves by now, but let's get serious for a moment and look at this upcoming drama about a broken man reclaiming his life. Jang Hyuk apparently never sleeps, so he has confirmed his leading role as the titular character of MBC's upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama "Bad Papa".
"Bad Papa" depicts the struggles of a man who chooses to be a bad person in order to be a good father. I'm not sure what this means, but I'm getting strong "I Am a Dad" vibes from this. Do we get a properly flawed man here? I definitely hope so. Jang Hyuk plays Yoo Ji-cheol, an unfortunate character who used to be a top boxer, before suddenly losing his money and fame in one go.
Ji-cheol sets out to piece his broken life back together and regain his family through the means of mixed martial arts. Jang Hyuk tackling a tough character who is defined both by action and humanity is reportedly a point of anticipation. I can definitely share said anticipation, as Jang Hyuk is a solid actor who really shines in approachable characters.
"Bad Papa" is written by Kim Seong-min, directed by Jin Chang-gyoo ("Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People") and it will follow "Investigation Partners" and "Risky Romance" in the second half of the year. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.
