Park Hae-soo, Lee Jung-jae

The drama Squid Game has recently cast Lee Jung-jae (Chief of Staff) and Park Hae-soo (Smart Prison Living) as its two leads. The title Squid Game refers to a traditional children’s game of tag involving an offense team, a defense team, and boundaries drawn in the shape of a squid. The story of the drama is centered around a mysterious winner-takes-all survival game with the ultimate prize of 45.6 billion won. It will be interesting to see how the survival game relates to the original children’s game.

Lee Jung-jae plays an ordinary company employee whose life hits rock bottom when restructuring at his company edges him out. When he hears about this secretive survival game and the astronomical prize-winning money, he jumps onboard.

Meanwhile, Park Hae-soo plays a neighborhood dongsaeng who grew up with Lee Jung-jae. Through his efforts alone, he rose above his impoverished background to graduate from Seoul National University. However, he’s caught embezzling company funds, and his livelihood becomes endangered. As a result, he also decides to join the survival game.

Netflix drama Squid Game, directed and written by Hwang Dong-hyuk (Miss Granny), will be released sometime later this year.

*****

The cast is shaping nice so far. I had a feeling that this drama will be male centric (with many male actors on the cast members like many kmovies) but I hope there will be interesting parts for actresses as well.

The drama seems to have another name, Round Six. Probably, the English name.

NETFLIX CONFIRMS CASTING OF LEE JUNG-JAE AND PARK HAE-SOO FOR NEW ORIGINAL SERIES ROUND SIX


Popular Korean actors Lee Jung-jae and Park Hae-soo have been confirmed for lead roles in a new Netflix original series, Round Six.


SEOUL, March 11, 2020 - Netflix Inc., the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, announced that the casting of Lee Jung-jae and Park Hae-soo in lead roles has been confirmed for Round Six, an original series to be directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk, whose other works include The Fortress, Miss Granny and Silenced.


Round Six depicts a story of people who decide to become the players of a mysterious survival game that has a whopping 40-million-dollar prize at stake. Gi-hun, played by Lee Jung-jae, seems defeated by life after being fired from his job. He decides to join the survival game to win prize money. Sang-woo, played by Park Hae-soo, is Gi-hun’s childhood friend and he also joins the game as he gets in trouble at work despite all the hard work he has done to be where he is at now.


Lee Jung-jae is one of Korea’s most well-known film and television actors. He has performed in such popular films and TV dramas as Along with the Gods series, Assassination, The Thieves, Svaha: The Sixth Finger, New World and Chief of Staff.


Park Hae-soo who made a name for himself in Prison Playbook, is also well known for his recent film Time to Hunt and the Netflix original anthology series Persona.


The literal translation of Round Six’s Korean title is ‘Squid Game’ (오징어 게임), which is the street game Gi-hun and Sang-woo played together when they were young. It’s quite a physical game that only ends when there’s a final winner, much like the survival game they play now. It’s named as such because players are to draw different geometric shapes on the ground, which, as a whole, look like a squid.


Round Six will premiere globally, only on Netflix.
