Based on a webtoon, “Black Knight” takes place in 2071 where pollution has become so severe that people can’t survive without respirators and tells of the story that unfolds as legendary delivery knight 5-8, who has extraordinary fighting skills, meets refugee Sa Wol, who dreams of becoming a delivery knight because they are the refugees’ only hope. As Korea undergoes desertification, the remaining 1 percent of humanity has become stratified, and delivery knights have come to play an extremely important role in society.
Kim Woo Bin will be playing the legendary delivery knight 5-8 who no one can oppose. Song Seung Heon will take on the role of villain Ryu Seok, the only son of Chun Myung Group chairman Ryu Hae Jin, whose jealousy over his father’s accomplishments has morphed into vicious cruelty. Ryu Seok, who is obsessed with the idea of proving himself, ultimately winds up facing off against 5-8.
Kang You Seok will portray refugee Sa Wol, who is envious of the legendary 5-8 and determined to become a delivery knight himself. Esom will be playing Seol Ah, a major of the military intelligence who looks after Sa Wol like family and is his savior. The drama will be helmed by director Jo Ui Seok of the films “Master,” “Cold Eyes,” and “The World of Silence.”
“Black Knight” is set to premiere in the second quarter of 2023. Stay tuned for more updates!
