Actor Nam Joo-hyuk, who hit a home run with “Twenty-five Twenty-one”, is reviewing “Vigilante” as his next work.
An official from the entertainment industry told Sports Chosun on April 20th, saying, “Nam Joo-hyuk has chosen new OTT drama ‘Vigilante’ as his next work”. “Vigilante” is based on a Naver webtoon of the same name drawn by author Kim Kyu-sam.
“Vigilante” centers around Ji-yong, a police officer who hunts criminals wandering around in this society on the weekends, reporter Choi Mi-ryeo, who finds out about Ji-yong’s secret, and Jo-heon, an investigator at the Metropolitan Investigation Unit who traces ‘Vigilante’ whose identity is in the center of attention from the media as well as the political and business worlds.
“Vigilante” is expected to bring excitement to the small screen viewers with the appearance of a “dark hero” punishing criminals. In this drama, Nam Joo-hyuk will play Ji-yong, a student at the police university who acts as a dark hero under the name “Vigilante”. The backstory of Ji-yong, who entered the police university with the intention of searching for his parents’ enemies, hunting down criminals every weekend will send a meaningful message to the viewers.
Nam Joo-hyuk recently captured audiences’ hearts through his portrayal of the male lead Baek Yi-jin in the coming-of-age drama “Twenty-five Twenty-one”. He successfully gives a fresh excitement and deep lingering emotions of an unforgettable first love with his visuals and acting. In particular, he proved himself to be a trending actor as he took 1st and 2nd place for 7 consecutive weeks in the rankings of most buzzworthy TV actors as announced by Good Data Corporation, an analysis agency.
Nam Joo-hyuk has appeared on the screen with unlimited transformation into a variety of characters. He showed a boyish charm in “The School Nurse Files” and “Start Up”, and more mature vibes in “The Light in Your Eyes”. He also won Best New Actor at the 2018 Blue Dragon Film Award for his performance in “The Great Battle.” The viewers are now having high expectations for Nam Joo-hyuk in his next drama with a completely new character.
“Vigilante” is in discussion to be released through global OTT platforms.
