Netflix’s upcoming drama has confirmed its casting lineup!
In early November, Yoon Kye Sang and Kim Yun Seok were reported to be in talks for Netflix’s new drama “In the Woods With No One” (literal translation). On February 20, Netflix finally announced, “The new original series ‘In the Woods With No One’ has been confirmed for production with Yoon Kye Sang, Kim Yun Seok, Go Min Si, and Lee Jung Eun as cast members.”
“In the Woods With No One” is a mystery thriller that tells the story of two pension owners who live in different timelines: Koo Sang Joon, who runs a motel in the past, and Jeon Young Ha, who runs a pension in the present. When similar incidents occur to each man, the two make completely different decisions. The drama is expected to raise tension with each episode as the entangled stories of the two characters unfold.
Kim Yun Seok will play Jeon Young Ha, whose pension is located deep in the forest. Jeon Young Ha’s peaceful life begins to crumble when the mysterious Yoo Sung Ah, played by Go Min Si, shows up at his pension one day as a guest and causes a big stir with her excessive and strange obsession with the place.
Yoon Kye Sang will be playing the role of Koo Sang Joon. In the summer of the early 2000s, Koo Sang Joon lost everything important to him due to an incident that happened at the motel, which was his family’s precious home.
Lee Jung Eun will star as police chief Yoon Bo Min, a former ace of the violent crime unit who persistently digs into cases and thinks of them as a game. Yoon Bo Min, who worked at the village’s police office more than 20 years ago, is now a police chief who watches closely over Jeon Young Ha with her extraordinary hunch when pursuing suspicious cases.
The upcoming drama is helmed by director Mo Wan Il, who won Best Director at the 56th Baeksang Arts Awards in the television category for “The World of the Married.”
“In the Woods With No One” will be released in more than 190 countries around the world through Netflix. Stay tuned for more updates!
