  • COIN LOCKER GIRL Director Partners with Netflix on Webtoon Adaptation DP
  • by Pierce Conran /  Jul 08, 2020
  • JUNG Hae-in and SON Suk-ku in Talks for 6-Part Series
     

    Coin Locker Girl (2015) director HAN Jun-hui has partnered with global streaming service Netflix to make D.P., a six-part series that will be adapted from the hit webtoon ‘D.P. - Day of the Dog’ (translated title) by KIM Bo-tong. Actors JUNG Hae-in and SON Suk-ku are in talks to appear in the series.

    The show will follow the story of Jun-ho, a soldier in the South Korean army who is assigned to a unit that tracks down and arrest army deserters. The title ‘D.P.’ stands for Deserter Pursuit, the name of the army unit that chases down AWOL soldiers. The original webtoon was a major success with over ten million views.

    Director HAN Jun-hui debuted to great acclaim with the women’s gangster tale Coin Locker Girl (2015) with KIM Hye-soo and KIM Go-eun, which screened in the Critics’ Week sidebar of the Cannes Film Festival. He returned to theaters last year with the action-drama Hit-and-Run Squad, featuring KONG Hyo-jin and RYU Jun-yeol.

    JUNG Hae-in, who is considering the part of Jun-ho, is active on both the big and small screen and his recent film credits include the romantic drama Tune in for Love (2019) and the comedy START-UP (2019).

    SON Suk-ku got his big break in a prior Netflix series after scoring a part on the second season the Wachowskis show Sense8 alongside BAE Doo-na. He has also worked with Director HAN before, as one of the supporting actors in Hit-and-Run Squad (2019).

    Lezhin Studios is producing the series which will be made available through Netflix in 190 territories. Lezhin is also working with Netflix on the YEON Sang-ho series Hellbound (working title), which is currently in development.
