Kim Woo-bin courted to star in new Netflix drama
It seems the long wait is over! While Kim Woo-bin will be returning with the movie Alien—which just wrapped up filming—fans are eagerly waiting for his comeback to the small screen. AM Entertainment announced that the actor has been offered a role in the Netflix drama, Delivery Knight and "is currently in talks to appear".
The upcoming drama is based on the eponymous webtoon that's set in a dystopian future where pollution has become so severe that in order to survive, citizens need to have everything delivered. Kim is courted for the role of legendary knight 5-8.
Previously, it was also announced that Kim received an offer to star in another drama, Our Blues. The new Jaeger-LeCoultre ambassador is certainly in high demand after his two-year hiatus.
