Disney+ joins the K-drama scene with mystery-thriller Grid
Disney+ is jumping into the K-drama scene (as are a lot of other streaming services) with their upcoming project Grid. This original series is a mystery-thriller that follows a bureau employee and a police investigator who pursue the truth about an entity that saved mankind.
Seo Kang-joon (I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day) stars as the bureau employee Kim Sae-ha who has spent the last 24 years trying to find “Ghost” — the mysterious entity that created the worldwide grid shield. Kim Ah-joong (Live Up to Your Name) plays Jung Sae-byuk, a police investigator who helps him discover the tiniest clue after she witnesses an unbelievable truth at a crime scene.
Lee Shi-young (Sweet Home) plays the part of Ghost, who reappears in the world after 24 years of silence to protect a serial killer. Kim Mu-yeol (Juvenile Court) plays Seo Kang-joon’s fellow employee at the bureau named Song Eo-jin. He’s always lived his life logically, so he doesn’t understand why his department and colleagues are so intent on finding Ghost.
Last but not least, there’s Kim Sung-kyun (D.P., Hospital Playlist) who plays the serial killer under the protection of Ghost. The character is an orphan who doesn’t know his own birthday, and doesn’t have any friends or acquaintances, so it’s an even bigger mystery as to why Ghost is protecting him.
According to reports, filming for Grid is complete, and currently, it’s in post-production. Co-directed by Lee Khan (The Divine Move) and Park Chul-hwan, and written by Lee Soo-yeon (Forest of Secrets), Grid will available on Disney+ at the beginning of next year.
