Premiere Watch: Bloodhounds
Time slot: Friday (single drop)
Genre: Action, crime, thriller
Episode count: 8
Reasons to watch: With the super-enticing cast of Woo Do-hwan, Lee Sang-yi, Heo Jun-ho, and Park Sung-woong, Netflix’s upcoming series Bloodhounds is certainly going to be a fun watch if you like stories of underdogs underdogging. Woo Do-hwan plays a promising boxer whose dreams are cut short due to his family’s debts and the predatory loan shark that won’t give them peace.
The story might be old as time, but with the directer/writer of Midnight Runners at the fore, I think we can rest assured that we’ll at least have a Woo Do-hwan x Lee Sang-yi bromance, loads of well-choreographed street fighting, bloody knuckles, broken dreams, and hopefully some twists along the way, too. And in a drama cycle that’s brimming with upcoming rom-coms, some mean left hooks are more than welcome too. You know, for diversity.
TL;DR: Woo Do-hwan x Lee Sang-yi tear it up as underground fighters
