A new drama series “Bloodhounds” starring actor Woo Do-hwan will be released on June 9, announced Netflix on Friday.

“Bloodhounds” is an action buddy drama in which two young men who dreamed of becoming professional boxers face off against evil forces of the private loan market. Woo plays Geon-woo, a sincere and considerate boxing prospect. When his mother suffers an unfortunate event he decides to start working for illegal moneylenders.

Actor Lee Sang-yi plays the role of Woo-jin, who is Geon-woo’s partner in action. Geon-woo and Woo-jin meet for the first time in the finals of a boxing competition and become instant friends.

Huh Joon-ho plays President Choi, the legendary leader of the private loan industry, and Park Sung-woong plays Myeong-gil, a notorious illegal loan shark who reigns above the law.

“Bloodhounds” was originally planned to feature actor Kim Sae-ron, but Kim dropped out of filming in May last year when she was caught drunk driving. Only a portion of the recorded footage with Kim will be included. She was not featured in the released trailer.
