Delivery drivers mobilize in a hazardous world where no one can be trusted.’ – the new Netflix series ‘Black Knight’ circles around this concept.

Netflix has confirmed the production of Black Knight, which will star Kim Woo-bin, Kang You-Seok, and E-Som and be directed by Cho Ui-Seok. Cho and Kim Woo-bin reunite in this new Netflix series after their big hit film Master.

Black Knight’ depicts a polluted society in 2071, where humans must breathe through respirator masks. In the desolate plains of the Korean Peninsula, only 1% of the human race has survived, and harsh social stratification has emerged. Within this system, delivery drivers play a critical role, and for many refugees, being a delivery driver is their only option of survival. Against this backdrop, ‘Black Knight’ narrates the story of a legendary delivery man named “5-8” who possesses remarkable battle skills and a refugee named “Sawol” who aspires to follow in his footsteps.

Black Knight’ is based on the popular webtoon of the same name, which won the E-IP Award at the Asian Film Market – an event that connects web drama, online novel, and webtoon writers with entertainment industry specialists who can remodel them into other media. The narrative drew notice for its imaginative premise, which transforms a common profession, in this case, delivery drivers, into a unique organization responsible for the human race’s existence.

Cho Ui-Seok is in charge of turning the plot into an action-packed series. Cho has shown a penchant for storytelling, action sequence, and stunning photography in his previous films, including Master, Cold Eyes, and The World of Silence.

Kim Woo-bin plays the famed delivery driver “5-8,” who has wowed audiences in films like Master, Twenty, and The Con Artists, as well as dramas like Uncontrollably Fond and Inheritors. The excitement for Black Night is tremendous as Kim reunites with Cho for the first time since Master.

Seolah, a military officer of the Defense Intelligence Command, is played by E-Som. Seolah saves Sawol’s life and looks after him as if he were a member of her own family.
