Choi Min-shik becomes Disney+’s Casino king

As we head closer to the finale of Kiss Sixth Sense, it’s prime time to check in on one of Disney+’s upcoming shows: the highly anticipated crime-action blockbuster Casino.

All eyes, of course, are on the legendary Choi Min-shik (In Our Prime) whose last drama was MBC’s Love and Separation, which aired in 1997-1998. Having focused on films for most of his career, Casino marks his first drama in over 20 years.

The story has Choi in the role of a casino king who suddenly loses everything in an unexpected turn of events. In order to get it all back, he enters into a dangerous gamble that puts his legacy — and survival — on the line. Joining him are Ryu Hyun-kyung (Doctor Detective), playing the head of investigations at South Korea’s National Tax Office, and Lee Kyu-hyung (Voice 4), playing Choi Min-shik’s younger counterpart.

There isn’t much information on the other characters as of yet, but we do have an impressive lineup including Sohn Seok-gu (My Liberation Notes), Lee Dong-hwi (SF8), and Heo Sung-tae (Insider). This past week, it was also reported that Jung Woong-in (Rose Mansion) will be joining the cast as well.

Written and directed by Kang Yoon-sung (Long Live the King, The Outlaws), Disney+’s Casino will be launching towards the end of 2022.

How much $ did Disney pay to get Choi Minshik on the small screen? Next thing you know they're going to get Song Kangho on the small screen too.

Why does it have to be Disney though?

I'd applaud them if they can get the likes of Park Hae-Il or Gang Dong-Won to small screen.

Netflix already casted Ha Jung-Woo for one of their upcoming drama so it isn't that farfetched of an idea!

So... does anyone have the latest on when most of the world will actually get to watch these Disney+ shows? I've been super patient so far hoping they'd make Grid and Rookie cops available but just NO luck so far. I have Disney+... why can't I watch my kdramas??! TT TT
