Two aspiring boxers come face to face with an entire underworld of ruthless gangsters in the first trailer for Netflix’s latest high-octane action series. Bloodhounds. (See the trailer below)
The series stars Woo Do-hwan (The divine fury, The King: Eternal Monarch) and Lee Sang-yi (Again, Residence Cha-Cha-Cha) as two up-and-coming boxers who find themselves in the ruthless world of loan sharks. After seeing how these mobsters prey on the financially desperate, they decide to team up with a benevolent retired moneylender (Huh Joon-ho — Silmido, Escape from Mogadishu) to take down the underworld’s most ruthless loan shark, played by Park Sung-woong (New world, the deal), and are relentless runners.
According to the series logline, Bloodhounds The eight-episode first season, which kicks off June 9, “promises to deliver a series of thrilling battle sequences that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. But more than just a nail-biting confrontation between good and evil, it’s a story of two loyal friends – and the lengths they would go to to protect those they love.
The series is directed by self-taught Korean filmmaker Jason Kim (Midnight runners, The divine fury) and produced for Netflix by Korean production banners Studio N, See AT Film and Seven O Six.
The title references the tenacity and determination of the series’ two underdog boxers who were honed in the fighting ring, which could prove to be the game-changer in their bloody street brawls. Netflix says, “Like bloodhounds, once they bite, they never let go.”
