“The Dominant Species” is a drama that depicts a new “era of artificial cultivated meat” in which bleeding real meat disappeared from the human table. While BF, a biotechnology company that has ended millions of years of the “dominating” and “being dominated” relationships in which humans eat animals, is showing rapid growth by dominating the cultivated meat market, the story begins with people questioning BF’s behavior inside and outside. Expectations are high for a new social worldview from writer Lee Soo-yeon, who solves the social problem consciousness that penetrates the current era with her detailed writing. Lee Soo-yeon is well-known as the writer who wrote the “Stranger” series, “Life” and “Grid.”

First of all, the character Woo Chae-woon, who opens the door to “The Dominant Species,” is played by actor Ju Ji-hoon. Woo Chae-woon, a former soldier who graduated from the Naval Academy and is working as a bodyguard, is expected to create a new genre that is different from everything that has been shown before by Ju Ji-hoon, who had performed passionately across genres from movies, dramas to global OTT. 

Han Hyo-joo will play the role of Yoon Yu-ju, the founder and CEO of BF Group, a cell culture meat company that forms the central axis of the drama. Actress Han Hyo-joo, who presents unrivaled acting transformations with her wide acting spectrum, is adding excitement to the story with her new face as the head of a company.

At the same time, actor Lee Hee-joon, who builds his own character in each of his work, will play the role of Prime Minister Sun Woo-jae. Viewers are intrigued to see how Lee Hee-joon will portray Prime Minister Sun Woo-jae, who started as a secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and rose to the position of prime minister through party activities. 

Lee Moo-saeng will appear in the role of On-san, a physiology doctor who is a founding member of BF Group and general manager of the cultivation fluid technology. Attention is drawn to another transformation of actor Lee Moo-saeng, who has already proved himself through a variety of characters with his nonstop acting moves from “The World of the Married” to “Sea of Silence,” “Thirty, Nine” and “Cleaning Up.”

Park Ji-yeon, who has been recognized for her delicate acting skills through a number of acting works and musical stages, will then play the role of Jung Hae-don, the planning director and lawyer of BF Group. Attention is focusing on Park Ji-yeon’s performance, who is also showing off her solid acting skills on the screen beyond the musical stage.

“The Dominant Species” will begin production in the second half of 2022.
