During this week’s Disney+ Asia-Pacific Showcase, a new original Korean series called “Rookie” was announced.

It’s a coming-of-age romantic series set in Korea’s elite police academy is K-pop idol Kang Daniel’s debut drama.  The series is full of stories with love and challenges that we all root for. Watch how a team of first-year police recruits come together to pursue their dreams as they learn what it takes to serve and protect the community.  Also starring in the series is Chae Soo Bin.

Disney+ will be launching in South Korea on November 12th, and “Rookies” is one of the first original shows created for the market.

“Rookies” is due to be released on Disney+ in South Korea in the first half of 2022.

No international release has been confirmed, but Luke Kang, President, The Walt Disney Company Asia Pacific, did say they are planning on releasing the original content globally during that event that:

“..we are making another commitment by combining the global resources of the company with the best content creators from Asia Pacific to develop and produce original stories on Disney+.
