[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Sin Seong-rok, Choi Min-soo, and Kang Ye-won to star in "Man Who Dies to Live"

MBC rounds out the cast of family comedy drama, "Man Who Dies to Live", as it confirms Sin Seong-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 Sin Seong-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 Sin Seong-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.
