Model-turned-actor Kim Young-kwang and rookie actress Kang Hae-lim will star in Netflix's new thriller series, "Somebody."
Directed by Jung Ji-woo, well-known for his previous films, "Eungyo" (2012) and "Tune in For Love" (2019), the series follows the story of a gruesome murder surrounding a social media app called "Somebody."
Kim, who was last seen in the action film, "Mission Possible" (2020), will play the role of Yoon Oh, a seemingly apathetic architect whose identity is revealed slowly. Rookie actress Kang will appear as Seom, an app developer who feels more comfortable interacting with computers and machines than with humans.
"I'm more excited than anxious to be participating in such a big project. I'm happy to be playing such an attractive character as Seom, and I'm currently already shooting for 'Somebody.' I've been working very hard on the project, so please look forward to it," Kang said.
Other cast members include Kim Soo-yeon, who stars as Seom's best friend and the police officer, Ki-eun, who investigates the unsolved murder case. Kim Yong-ji, who starred in the hit dramas, "Mr. Sunshine" (2018) and "The King: Eternal Monarch" (2020), will play Ki-eun's friend who assists in the investigation.
The premiere date of "Somebody" is to be confirmed.
