Korean superstars Kim Woo-bin, Kang You-seok and E Som will headline Netflix’s new drama Black Knight.

Set in 2071, the series imagines a world suffocating from air pollution, with only one-percent of the human race remaining and dependent on respirator masks to breathe.

Woo-bin (Heirs, Master, Uncontrollably Fond) portrays the lethal delivery driver named 5-8.

You-seok (Start-Up, Light on Me, Once Again) is cast as Sawol, a refugee who dreams of following the footsteps of 5-8 to survive.

E Som (Samjin Company English Class, Inseparable Bros, Microhabitat) plays Seolah, a Defense Intelligence Command military officer.

In 2017 Woobin was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer. He has since been focusing on recovery and treatments.

Black Knight is based on the webtoon of the same name by Lee Yoon-gyun. It won the E-IP (Entertainment Intellectual Property) Award at the Asian Film Market.

It is directed by Cho Ui-seok (Master, Cold Eyes, The World of Silence). The premiere date has yet to be announced.
