Kim Woo-bin in talks to lead Delivery Knight

According to Korean news outlet Sports DongA, Kim Woo-bin has been offered the lead role for Delivery Knight, a post-apocalyptic Netflix series. If he accepts the role, this will be his first drama appearance after winning his battle against cancer.

A drama set in a heavily polluted Korea

Delivery Knight is based on the webtoon of the same name, and the series is set in a post-apocalyptic South Korea. The air is dangerously polluted, masks are something that people can’t live without, and people are reliant on delivery for survival. There are also people who are genetically modified and have special powers.

The story revolves around Sa-wol, a girl who becomes a deliveryman after her sister gets kidnapped by an evil conglomerate who wants to experiment on humans. She meets the legendary deliveryman, known as Delivery Knight 5-8, and he teaches Sa-wol self-defence.
