#ChoiMinSoo, #KangYeWon, #ShinSungRok confirmed to star in MBC's comic-family-human drama #ManWhoDiestoLive. It'll follow 'Ruler' in July.




Choi Min-soo up to become eccentric count in Man Who Dies to Live


As his current drama The Liar and His Lover draws to a close, it seems that Choi Min-soo is already being scouted for other projects. He’s currently reviewing the script for the upcoming MBC 24-episode miniseries Man Who Dies to Live. Set in the 1970s, a man travels to a faraway kingdom in Arabia, and comes back a count...





Shin Sung-rok, Kang Ye-won potentially get married for Man Who Dies to Live


Well, this would certainly be an interesting pairing: Shin Sung-rok (On the Way to the Airport) and Kang Ye-won (Baek-hee Has Returned) may become man and wife for the upcoming MBC drama Man Who Dies to Live. It’s about a father who goes to a small faraway land in Arabia called Bodantia and comes back a nobleman. The drama will show the true meaning of family as he tries to reconcile with his estranged daughter and her husband..
