Actor Kim Woo-bin is gearing up for a much-anticipated return to both movie and TV screens after an absence of nearly five years due to illness. He was forced to take leave to treat nasopharyngeal cancer in 2017.
Kim will join the new Netflix series "Black Knight," based on a webtoon of the same name, the streaming service said on Wednesday.
It follows his casting in the film "Alien," which is in production, and an upcoming TV project tentatively titled "Our Blues" written by renowned screenwriter Noh Hee-kyung.
The Netflix series depicts life in a post-apocalyptic world where delivery workers emerge as people's saviors.
It will be directed by Cho Ui-seok, who worked with Kim on the 2016 film "Master." Other cast members include Esom and Kang Yoo-seok.
The airdate has not been decided yet.
