Bloodhounds is a drama about two young men caught up in the world of loan sharks – where the money takes precedence over people’s lives – risking their lives against a powerful force of evil.
Based on the popular webtoon of the same name, the drama stars Woo Do Hwan (currently seen as Kang Han Su in the historical drama Joseon Attorney: A Morality) as a sincere and considerate boxer Kim Geon Woo, and Lee Sang Yi (famous for his performance in the rom-com Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha) as a charming and affectionate Hong Woo Jin.
Geon Woo and Woo Jin fight against a notorious loan shark Kim Myung Gil (Park Sung Woong), who reigns above the law.
The first trailer shows the actors in action. From face-smacking punches to fast-spinning kicks, the drama is brimming with high-octane fights. By the looks of it, we can also expect heart-warming bromance and camaraderie between the main leads.
Along with the trailer, the upcoming K-drama also got its first poster released. The poster portrays Woo Do Hwan and Lee Sang Yi, bruised and bleeding but with clenched fists and unwavering determination, ready to fight. The catchline on the poster reads, “Their biggest fight is not in the ring”, indicating the powerful forces the boxers will be tackling.
The K-drama is written and directed by Jason Kim, famous for his work in Midnight Runners.
Bloodhounds will hit our screens on June 9. The action drama will air a total of 8 episodes. It will be available to stream exclusively on Netflix.
