If you’re a fan of both A World of Married Couple and Itaewon Class, then you’re in for a treat. Netflix just confirmed that it will be releasing a new K-drama starring Han So Hee and Ahn Bo Hyun, who both played the bad guys in the aforementioned shows. Well, the tables have turned, and they’ll be fighting crime and injustice in the upcoming show called Undercover.
According to Netflix’s official announcement, Undercover is an “action noir” series that tells the story of Yun Ji-u, played by Han So Hee, who joins a drug cartel called Dongcheon to avenge her father who died under suspicious circumstances. She is tapped as the organization’s undercover agent in the police force and starts to unravel the truth behind her father’s death.
It is through the police force that she meets Jeon Pil-do, played by Ahn Bo Hyun, who is a detective under the narcotics unit. He becomes Ji-u’s partner on the force.
A World of Married Couple fans will also be thrilled to know that the actor behind the neurotic Park In Kyu, Lee Hak Ju, will also be in the show as the underling of Dongcheon’s kingpin, Choi Mu Jin. Mu Jin will be played by Park Hee Soon, known for his roles in The Witch: Part 1. The Supervision and 1987.
Another actor you should look forward to is Kim Sang Ho, also known as Moo Yeong in the zombie thriller series Kingdom. He’ll be playing the role of Cha Gi Ho, chief of the narcotics unit who is hell-bent on putting a stop to Dongcheon's operations. So you can expect him to butt heads with Park Hee Soon many times in the show.
It was also announced that Undercover will be directed by Kim Jin-min, who was behind the Netflix original series Extracurricular. The show will be written by Kim Va Da and produced by Studio Santa Claus Entertainment Co.
It will be released worldwide exclusively on Netflix.
No word yet on the release date but you can bet we’ll be counting the days till then!
