Impressive cast lined up for Netflix mafia-cop drama Undercover
Han So-hee, Park Hee-soon, Ahn Bo-hyun
The casting line-up for new Netflix drama Undercover (which is different from the JTBC drama Undercover that’s due to air in 2021) has been confirmed. Undercover is a revenge drama about a cartel gang member who goes undercover and joins the police force to learn the secret behind her father’s death.
Han So-hee (A Couple’s World) has been confirmed to play the main character, and Park Hee-soon (A Beautiful World) has confirmed his role as the cold, charismatic mob boss for the Dongcheon syndicate, Korea’s largest drug cartel. He helps Han So-hee’s character go undercover as a cop using all the resources he has, but his motives remain unclear.
Lee Hak-joo, Jang Ryul, Kim Sang-ho
Ahn Bo-hyun (Itaewon Class) returns to the small screen as a tough, capable police investigator for the drug crimes department. He’s a strict rule-follower, so it’ll be interesting to see how he interacts with Han So-hee, who becomes his partner. Kim Sang-ho (Alice) will be playing the leader of the drug crimes unit who is nearing retirement. His one obsession is ripping out the roots of Dongcheon.
Assisting Park Hee-soon with his nefarious gang activities will be Lee Hak-joo (Sweet Munchies), playing his right-hand man. Lee Hak-joo’s character is so loyal that he’s willing to lay down his life for any of Park Hee-soon’s orders. Meanwhile, Jang Ryul (Forest of Secrets 2) plays a former Dongcheon member who caused problems and was exiled from the gang. Years later, he comes back with a vengeful determination to see Dongcheon go down in flames.
Netflix drama Undercover, directed by Kim Jin-min (Extracurricular), will begin airing in late 2020.
