Once they bite, they never let go.
BLOODHOUNDS tells the story of Gun-woo played by Woo Do-hwan and Woo-jin played by Lee Sang-yi who met in the finals of a boxing championship where the bond of their friendship was sealed after finding out that both of them are part of the Marine Corps. Their friendship was brought to another level when loan sharks from Smile Capital tricked Gun-woo’s mother into debt and trashed her café, which urges Woo-jin to help Gun-woo to avenge her.
Still not convinced?
Let me give you 4 additional reasons why you shouldn’t miss BLOODHOUNDS:
1. Woo Do-hwan
Yes, mga bes! Isa sya sa reason talaga!
I know that all of you are familiar with Woo Do-hwan’s cold and mischievous smile that never fails to make you swoon over him, especially after he played his iconic role in the hit drama series “The King: Eternal Monarch”.
If you love him in that drama, then you’ll surely love him here in BLOODHOUNDS as he plays the loving son who seeks justice as he tries to keep the heart of a boxer.
2. Lee Sang-yi
We have all seen him play so many roles but this by far is the most different from all the roles that he had played.
Fun Fact: Did you know that Lee Sang-yi and Woo Do-hwan are friends in real life? I guess that’s one of the reasons why their friendship in BLOODHOUNDS felt so real.
3. The Veterans
What made this drama more amazing is the support of these veteran actors that added more colors to the story.
Park Sung-woong – Hands down to this versatile actor who can be funny, lovable, and extremely bad. Yep, that’s just how great he is. No matter what role is presented to him he will deliver. And his role as Kim Myeong-gil is no different as he will really get under your skin.
Heo Joon-ho – I used to really hate him because just like Park Sung-woong, his acting can bring up emotions you never knew existed. I can still remember how much anger I felt towards him in “Come and Hug Me” and the tears I cried for role in “Missing: The Other Side”. Seeing him play his role as President Choi reminds me of his role in “Missing: The Other Side”, the kindest man you’ll ever meet.
4. The Good vs Evil
Just like in real life, you will see a glimpse of what money, greed, and power can do, and just how they can change a person.
In this drama, a glimpse of the sad reality is shown of how politics and greed can make a person do things that he was not supposed to do. Aside from that, you will also see how people with power take advantage of the people who are trying to live humbly.
But still, some will stand against these evil people and try to protect those who are unable to protect themselves. In the end, justice prevails as no bad deed is left unpunished.
Set to be released on Netflix tomorrow June 9, 2023, this new upcoming series which is based on the webtoon of the same title promises to keep you at the edge of your seat as you watch each episode.
