The Equator Man Korean Drama: Melodrama involving jealousy, love, desire and revenge between two best friends turned enemies

The writer of the 2008 drama Women of the Sun is back with her newest piece, The Equator Man. The plot sounds similar, the only difference is in this drama, the story focuses on two best friends ( Kim Seon Woo [played by Uhm Tae Woong] and Lee Jang Il [played by Lee Jun Hyuk]) who become rivals because of circumstances, jealousy and hatred.

Mellow actor Uhm Force -v- City Hunter's Prosecutor Lee Jun Hyuk playing enemies - I honestly want to root for Lee Jun Hyuk's character because I really love him playing as a good prosecutor in City Hunter. However, this time around he plays as an ambitious guy who ends up throwing away their friendship due to greed and jealousy. Meanwhile, Uhm Tae Woong's character went through lots of hardship (he lived in an orphanage) but he his strong desire to success will open ways for him to become a CEO. He's shocked when he finally finds out his real father. Did he throw him away?
