Netflix presents their 2024 K-content lineup

by lovepark

A new year means a new Netflix reel highlighting all the upcoming projects down the pipeline. From dramas to movies and even variety shows, the streaming platform promises a spectrum of entertainment including new series and awaited sequels. Hopefully there will be something for everyone to enjoy!

Drama: The Whirlwind
Release date: Q3 2024
Need to know: Powerhouse actors Sol Kyung-gu and Kim Hee-ae star in this political drama about a prime minister trying to uproot a corrupt president and the deputy prime minister of economy who fights against him. I can’t quite tell if this series will touch on the current political climate of Korea (which is ripe for drama, to put it lightly) or if it will tread with caution as to not incur anyone’s ire, but with Park Kyung-soo (Whisper, Punch) penning the scripts, I know the story will be rich and layered, regardless. Also, I’m excited to hear both actors deliver Park’s poetic monologues with the gravitas they deserve.

The upcoming Netflix original political drama series, The Whirlwind, has confirmed its premiere date for June 28.  

The Whirlwind centers around the power struggle between the prime minister, who decides to assassinate the president to uproot the corrupt power, and a deputy prime minister of economy, who aims to thwart him and seize power for herself.  

The posters feature the fallen president and the intense standoff between Prime Minister Park Dong Ho (Sol Kyung Gu) and Deputy Prime Minister Jung Soo Jin (Kim Hee Ae). The two are depicted standing face-to-face, suggesting a fierce political battle.

The text "That Day, The President's Heart Stopped" coupled with the image of the fallen president heightens curiosity about the events that led to this moment.

The teaser opens with showing the president collapsing, followed by a shocking confession from Park Dong Ho, "I assassinated the president." Driven by his convictions, Prime Minister Park crossed the line and did the unthinkable. But he doesn't stop here. He says, "And there are no limits for those who cross it," hinting the president's assassination is just a part of a much bigger plan.

On the other hand, his opponent, Jung Soo Jin, is equally fierce, and willing to do anything for greater power. She says, "In politics, power is superior to morals."

The teaser also showcases Park Dong Ho planning a takeover of the National Intelligence Service, the prosecution, and the police, and his plans to dig into the president's son and catch Jung Soo Jin and the Daejin Group, for all of which he asks one month. One month to turn the world upside down.

The Whirlwind will be available exclusively on Netflix starting June 28.

20240530102309_the-whirlwind-3.jpg?s=900Watch: Sol Kyung Gu And Kim Hee Ae Are Political Enemies In Trailer For Upcoming Drama "The Whirlwind"

Jun 01, 2024

Upcoming Netflix drama “The Whirlwind” has shared new posters and a teaser!

“The Whirlwind” depicts a conflict between a prime minister who is determined to assassinate the president in order to root out corruption and a deputy prime minister who is determined to stop him and seize power.

Sol Kyung Gu will take on the role of Prime Minister Park Dong Ho, who wants to change the political scene and punish the president who colluded with conglomerates. Kim Hee Ae will play Jeong Soo Jin, the Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs, who climbed to the top of the political ladder with her intelligence and strong convictions.

The released posters show Prime Minister Park Dong Ho and Deputy Prime Minister Jeong Soo Jin facing off as the president lies unconscious in the background. The tension between Park Dong Ho and Jeong Soo Jin as they stand facing each other hints at the fierce political game and confrontation between them, as well as the turbulent times that lie ahead for the country as a result. The collapsed president, a fallen e-cigarette, and shards of broken glass also pique curiosity about what led to this shocking incident.

the-whirlwind-2.jpg

The accompanying teaser begins with the president clutching his heart and collapsing, followed by Park Dong Ho confessing, “I assassinated the president.” He adds, “I crossed the line. And there are no limits for those who cross it.” The teaser then introduces Jeong Soo Jin, who says that in politics, the powerful always win against the righteous.

Prime Minister Park Dong Ho goes on to lay out his plans, which include taking control of the NIS (National Intelligence Service), the prosecutors’ office, and the police, as well as digging into the president’s son and taking down some chaebol families. The president is then seen being moved on a stretcher as the caption reads, “That day, the president’s heart stopped.” Finally, Park Dong Ho is heard asking to be given just one month to turn the world upside down.
