Netflix’s Black Knight: Release Date & Cast
With the expansion of Netflix’s K-drama program, we are going to have another amazing addition to the library. Episode 1 of the upcoming dystopian K-drama Black Knight is coming to the Netflix streaming platform on May 12th, 2023.
The South-Korean drama will mainly focus on the effects of air pollution. This is why many fans are comparing this TV series to the popular American franchise Mad Max. On another note, read on to find out the main cast and the team behind this dystopian K-drama.
Firstly, the main character is Sa-wol, a refugee and a deliveryman from 2071. The popular Korean actor Kang Yoo-seok will portray Sa-wol, while his co-star is Kim Woo-bin. In addition, the cast will include popular actors and K-drama rising stars such as Song Seung-heon, Kim Eui-sung, Jin Kyung, and Yu Seong-ju.
When it comes to the directing team, Cho Ui-seok will serve as the project director. He’s previously worked on big South-Korean projects such as Cold Eyes, Master, and Golden Slumber. This dystopian K-drama will be the TV adaptation of the popular webtoon Delivery Knight.
“First time reading the webtoon, I found the setup to be extremely innovative. It’s not the delivery men that we know of – they fight off the hunters to deliver oxygen and daily necessities, meaning that they play the most crucial role in the survival of the remaining mankind. That really appealed to me.” Cho Ui-seok, director of dystopian K-drama Black Knight
