Netflix released the official trailer for its upcoming K-drama “Black Knight” starring Kim Woo-bin on Thursday.
The series, which is a live-action adaptation of Lee Yungyun’s 2017-2019 webtoon “Delivery Knight,” centers on delivery drivers called Black Knights who bring emergency supplies, such as oxygen, to residents of a severely polluted Korea.
“In a dystopian future devastated by air pollution, the survival of humanity depends on the Black Knights — and they’re far from your average deliverymen,” the show’s official Netflix description states.
Kim (“Uncontrollably Fond,” “Our Blues”) stars as “5-8,” a renowned deliveryman who delivers oxygen to underground homes.
In addition to Kim, “Black Knight” will also star Song Seung-heon (“Voice”), Esom (“Taxi Driver”) and Kang Yoo-seok (“Start-Up”).
The series was directed and written by Cho Ui-seok, who has previously worked on hit films such as 2016’s star-studded thriller “Master.”
