South Korean veteran actor, Choi Min-sik has been cast in the lead role in King Of Savvy, a new crime series arriving on Disney+
Well, ain’t that some amazing news? As if that casting ain’t good enough, The Outlaws’ Kang Yoon-sung will serve as director.
It looks like Moviehooker could be subscribing to Disney+. After all the complaining and whining I do about them, they’ve figured out how to take my hard earned cash. Disney are going in a strange but very interesting direction. I mean they’re money-hungry whores, right?. If Netflix are reporting insane figures of well over 200 million households viewing Squid Game and Hellbound alone, it’s a no-brainer they want in on that action. And it looks like they’ve hit the ground running.
Official Release from Disney+
