Jang Hyuk and martial arts are a match made in hard work heaven, something "Bad Papa" would very much like to remind us in these first stills of our has-been and will-be hero. While the once best boxer goes through a slump following a questionable defeat that cost him everything, we'll no doubt be getting a great return.
The stills released are from a part where protagonist Ji-cheol lies down in the ring and hugs his family after a victory. The scene has quite the preparation behind it, as the production was reportedly given set consultation by one of the country's top MMA organizations, TFC (Top Fighting Championship). Their participation, Jang Hyuk's rigorous training, and the appearance of real judges and athletes makes it all the more realistic.
I hope that his growth as a person will be as important as his athletic rebirth. Losing at sports doesn't just automatically make you a negligent father, so my guess is that he does plenty of wrong after his body and ego experience defeat. I'm intrigued by his story of redemption, and will check the drama out when it premieres, starting October 1st at 22:00 KST on MBC.
