Enter the Dystopian World of “Black Knight”, Netflix’s Epic Series Premieres May 12th

The Netflix series "Black Knight" is set to make its worldwide premiere on May 12th. The series follows the journey of refugee Sa-wol, and the legendary deliveryman 5-8, as he takes on the all-powerful Cheonmyeong Group in a dystopian portrayal of Korea devastated by severe air pollution, making it uninhabitable without an oxygen mask.

Adapted from a widely acclaimed webtoon, Black Knight narrates the story of black knights, the delivery men who endanger their lives to transport essentials to people in a polluted and dystopian world, where strict social hierarchy is enforced. Starring Kim Woo-bin as the legendary delivery man and knight 5-8, the show has garnered significant enthusiasm from fans worldwide. Kim Woo-bin expressed, “I felt immense happiness while filming this series, and I sincerely hope that our collective efforts resonate with the viewers, and they too relish every moment of it, just as I did.”

The show features an impressive cast, including Song Seung-heon, who portrays the lone heir to the Chunmyung Group, Kang You-seok, who plays a young boy idolizing 5-8, and Esom, who stars as a major at the Defense Intelligence Command. This dream team works together to bring to life the stories of the characters as they navigate survival in a post-apocalyptic world. The series is helmed by director Cho Ui-seok, known for his remarkable work on acclaimed films such as Master, Cold Eyes, and The World of Silence.

The second teaser poster, capturing the legendary 5-8 unloading packages in the desolate landscape, signals the imminent worldwide release of Black Knight on May 12th, only on Netflix.
