The production of “Murder DIEary” has been confirmed.
The thriller webtoon “Murder DIEary” will be reborn as a Netflix series. “Murder DIEary” is a Netflix series that tells the story of an ordinary man who accidentally murders a serial killer and a detective who is chasing after him.
“Murder DIEary” is based on a webtoon of the same name by Kkomabi, who received explosive reactions by presenting unpredictable twists through shocking storytelling that contrasts with the cute drawing style. “Murder DIEary” won the New Manhwa Award at Korea Content Awards, Today’s Our Manhwa Awards and the Jury Prize at Readers’ Manhwa Awards.
Director Lee Chang-hee, who showed an excellent sense of genre through the drama “Hell Is Other People” and the movie “The Vanished”, will helm “Murder DIEary”, which has been highly anticipated since the moment the serialization news was announced. As he previously showed high level of completion with solid development and beautiful visual beauty in the drama “Hell Is Other People”, which is based on a popular webtoon, expectations are also high for “Murder DIEary”. Writer Kim Da-min, who won the Grand Prize in the 2019 scenario planning and development feature category, will pen “Murder DIEary” and show a new perspective.
Choi Woo-sik, Son Seok-koo and Lee Hee-joon, who have been receiving the most attention recently, united in “Murder DIEary”. Choi Woo-sik, who captured the public’s hearts with his unique performances through films “Time to Hunt”, “Parasite”, “The Witch” and the drama “Our Beloved Summer”, will attempt an intense image transformation in “Murder DIEary”. Lee Tang (played by Choi Woo-sik) is an ordinary college student who realizes that he has the ability to identify evil people after his accidental first murder.
Son Seok-koo plays detective Jang Nan-gam, who pursues the murder case committed by Lee Tang. Lee Hee-joon, who imprinted a strong presence in every work he appeared in such as dramas “Mouse”, “The Legend of the Blue Sea”, movies “Oh! My Gran”, “Miss Baek”, “The Man Standing Next”, “1987: When the Day Comes” and the play “Then and Today”, takes on the role of former detective Song-chon. Song-chon traces Lee Tang’s whereabouts alone, adding another tension to the work.
