Netflix is set to bring Gyeongseong Creature to viewers around the globe. The thriller series follows individuals going up against monstrous creatures that were born out of human greed. Set in the spring of 1945, in the city of Gyeongseong (Gyeongseong is the former name of Korea’s capital city Seoul, and the name used during Japanese colonial rule), the series is highly anticipated due to the sheer amount of talent tied to it.
International heartthrob Park Seo Joon who received acclaim for his roles in the dramas Itaewon Class and What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim, plays Jang Tae-sang – the head of merchant marketplace Golden Jade House who is the wealthiest, most well-connected person in Gyeongseong. Tae-sang is someone who puts money before justice, but all that changes when he crosses paths with Yun Chae-ok while investigating a series of missing person cases.
Han So Hee who rose to stardom from the Netflix Series My Name, The World of the Married and Nevertheless, plays Yun Chae-ok – a famous bounty hunter who can track down missing people, even ones who are dead. Chae-ok possesses a sharp eye and agile survival skills learned from her rough childhood roaming across Manchuria and Shanghai with her father.
The solid cast also includes Claudia Kim and Wi Ha Joon who have both received international spotlight for their roles. Claudia Kim plays Maeda who is the wife of a powerful official in Gyeongseong during the colonial period. The actress has been active on the global stage through the films Avengers: Age of Ultron and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and the Netflix Series Marco Polo.
Wi Ha Joon, who made a lasting impression on worldwide audiences with his role in Squid Game and is currently winning over viewers in Little Women, plays Gwon Jun Taek, Tae-sang’s best friend. He joins Tae-sang’s dangerous plan in rescuing the people who have gone missing.
Behind the scenes of this stellar cast lineup is a talented production team consisting of heavyweight hitmakers. The team is led by screenwriter Kang Eun K, who penned dramas across various genres such as Dr. Romantic and Kang Chi, the Beginning, and director Chung Dong Yoon, who flexed his powerful muscle as a creator in Stove League.
“Gyeongseong Creature” is scheduled to premiere in 2023 via Netflix. Stay tuned for more updates!
