HAN Jun-hee to Helm 6-Part Military-themed Webtoon Story
D.P., which stands for ‘Deserter Pursuit’, will focus on an army unit that tracks down deserters. JUNG will play army private Jun-ho, a member of the unit who becomes conflicted about his role in deciding the fate of the confused young soldiers he must track down. KOO and KIM will play corporal Ho-yeol and sergeant Bum-gu, respectively, fellow members of the unit. SON will play Ji-seob, a lieutenant who disapproves of the unit. Director HAN and webtoon creator KIM Bo-tong are collaborating on the script for the series.
Director HAN is known for his hit debut Coin Locker Girl (2015), a female gang thriller that debuted in the Critics’ Week sidebar of the Cannes Film Festival. He followed that up with the action-drama Hit-and-Run Squad last year, which also starred SON.
Lezhin Studios is producing the project, their second for Netflix after the YEON Sang-ho project Hellbound, which is also in pre-production.
