New Korean Disney+ Original Series “Han River Police” Revealed
Disney is developing a new Korean drama series for Disney+ called, “Han River Police”, which is going to star Kwon Sang-woo (Stairway to Heaven, Curtain Call) and Kim Hee-won (Netflix’s Unlocked).
The new action comedy series will debut on Disney+ in the second half of 2023 and will join other recent Korean Disney+ Originals such as “Call It Love”, “Soundtrack #1”, “Big Bet”, and “Snowdrop”. Disney has been creating lots of new originals in Korea to compete with Netflix, which has had some huge success with shows like “Squid Game”.
“Han River Police” will see Kwon Sang-woo play the role of Han Dujin, the hot-tempered sergeant of the Han River Police Force who holds back for nobody, while Kim will be playing the role of Lee Chunseok, a laid-back lieutenant with the exact opposite personality. Stuck together on patrol of Seoul’s Han River, the two officers are faced with emergency situations ranging from terrorism to everyday accidents and other incidents requiring emergency assistance — a premise that suggests all of the action, humour and offbeat crime-solving of the classic buddy cop genre.
According to JoongAng Daily Shin Hyeon-seung (So Not Worth It), Lee Sang-yi (Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha) and Bae Da-bin (Gangnam Beauty) will also co-star as other cops on the Han River Police force.
