A man vs man showdown will unfold in television dramas this coming May 26. SBS’s A Gentleman’s Dignity and MBC’s Time Slip Dr Jin (hereafter Dr Jin) will be pitted against each other in the same time slot. It will lead to a competition of top male star appeal. A Gentleman’s Dignity will star Jang Dong-gun, Kim Soo-ro, Kim Min Jong and Lee Jong Hyuk while Song Seung-heon, Lee Bum Soo and Kim Jaejoong will be starring in Dr Jin.
As it is not the domination of just one top male star, it is a rare attack on the mainstream weekend television screen since several of them will be appearing in dramas together. The first broadcast of A Gentleman’s Dignity will begin on May 26, after the conclusion of Dummy Mummy. Dr Jin will also be shown on May 26 after the conclusion of Feast of Gods.
