Park Hae Jin is the new face of 'Esquire' magazine for its May edition!

For the accompanying interview, the actor talked about landing his dream role in "Man to Man" slated to start airing on April 21.

The newest JTBC series, which will take over the time slot of hit drama "Strong Woman Do Bong Soon," follows the life of an elite black ops agent who will try to protect a Hallyu star from his dark past.

"This is the first character I've taken on in 10 years through which I was able to act however I wanted to," Park Hae Jin said as per Soompi. "That's how fun working on this project was."

"Man to Man" is a pre-produced drama helmed by Lee Chang Min, who is known for his works in "Birth of a Beauty" and "Remember: War of the Son."

After completing the filming of the action drama, Park Hae Jin admitted it felt odd when people have stopped calling him by his character name.

"It was really strange when filming ended for the drama and suddenly people were no longer referring to me as Seol Woo," he shared.

Aside from "Man to Man," Park Hae Jin will also reprise his role as Yoo Jung in the film adaptation of "Cheese in the Trap." But despite being one of the most in demand Korean actors, the 33-year-old star knows what matters most at the end of the day.

"I've gotten a lot more relaxed. The time that I spend with my family is far more precious than any time I spend alone," he explained.

Meanwhile, cast and crew of JTBC's "Man to Man" admitted that they are pressured to be the forerunner of Park Bo Young's hit series. But despite their worries, the team is just thankful that "Strong Woman Do Bong Soon" has left a great impression to the viewers.

Catch the premiere episode of "Man to Man" this Friday at 11:00 p.m.
