Netflix has announced that Black Knight will make its worldwide premiere on May 12.
The series follows the journey of refugee Sa-wol, and the legendary deliveryman 5-8, as he takes on the all-powerful Cheonmyeong Group in a dystopian portrayal of Korea devastated by severe air pollution, making it uninhabitable without an oxygen mask.
The show narrates the story of black knights, the delivery men who endanger their lives to transport essentials to people in a polluted and dystopian world, where strict social hierarchy is enforced.
Starring Kim Woo-bin as the legendary delivery man and knight 5-8, the show has garnered significant enthusiasm from fans worldwide. Kim Woo-bin expressed, “I felt immense happiness while filming this series, and I sincerely hope that our collective efforts resonate with the viewers, and they too relish every moment of it, just as I did.”
The show features an impressive cast, including Song Seung-heon, who portrays the lone heir to the Chunmyung Group, Kang You-seok, who plays a young boy idolizing 5-8, and Esom, who stars as a major at the Defense Intelligence Command. This dream team works together to bring to life the stories of the characters as they navigate survival in a post-apocalyptic world.
The series is helmed by director Cho Ui-seok, known for his remarkable work on acclaimed films such as Master, Cold Eyes, and The World of Silence.
Black Knight will make its worldwide premiere on May 12, only on Netflix.
