An intriguing new thriller likely to delight viewers will soon be adapted from the well-known Bloodhounds webcomic for a South Korean television series.
The Woo Do-hwan from programs like ‘Mad Dogs’ and ‘Save Me’ is making a comeback with another serious part after playing back-to-back lighthearted roles with projects like ‘Joseon Attorney‘ and ‘The King: Eternal Monarch.’
The forthcoming Netflix original Bloodhounds has a contentious background because the show’s female star was engaged in a drunk driving accident. Putting the dispute behind us, this K-drama will soon be released.
What is “Bloodhounds” about?
Based on a Naver webtoon of the same name, the series is directed and written by Kim Joo-hwan, who also helmed the film “Midnight Runners.”
In the television series Bloodhounds, two young individuals enter the world of loan sharks in search of money and become entangled in a web of far darker forces.
Geon-woo, played by Woo Do-hwan, enters the world of loan sharks to pay off his past debt. Woo-jin, who initially encounters Geon-woo as a boxing opponent but eventually teams up with him, is portrayed by Lee Sang-Yi.
The ruthless loan shark Myeong-gil, purely motivated by money in all he does, is characterized by actor Park Sung-wrong.
Heo Joon-ho portrays Mr. Choi, a loan shark legend who now assists the ill by giving them money without charging interest. Heo Joon-ho adds gravity to the film with his presence on screen.

What Could Be the Plot?
The story’s three central characters are Cha Hyeon Joo, Hong Woo Jin, and Kim Geon Woo. Geon Woo, a boxer and former high school student, hails from a low-income household since his mother took out debts from loan sharks when she was expecting.
The main lead had to give up his studies and look for well-paying employment to pay back the loan sharks who had threatened him.
Another high schooler named Woo Jin is entirely different from Geon Woo. He was expelled from school and had a history of bullying.
President Choi, a prominent person in the criminal underworld who rules the nation covertly through his subordinate Hyeon Joo, has extended an offer of employment to these two teenagers, and they are prepared to take it.
However, they must collect debts from other people as part of their work as bloodhounds, something they can only accomplish by compromising their morals.
