After the critical acclaim of the drama series Moving, screenwriter Kangfull returns this year with Light Shop, a mysterious drama exploring life, death, and what makes us human. The series will be exclusively on Disney+ (Hulu in the United States).
Just like Moving, Light Shop is an adaptation of another one of Kangfull’s hit webtoon series of the same name.
Synopsis: The series follows a group of strangers, each struggling to come to terms with a traumatic event in their past. Going about their daily lives, each individual is mysteriously drawn to a light shop that sits at the end of a seedy alleyway. Guarded by a vigilant shopkeeper, the light shop could hold the key to the strangers’ pasts, presents, and futures.
The stars of the series include:
- Ju Jihoon (Kingdom, The Spy Gone North) as Jung Wonyoung, the owner of the light shop.
- Park Boyung (Strong Girl Bong-soon, Oh My Ghost) as Kwon Youngji, a nurse with an unusual connection to her patients
- Bae Seongwoo (Veteran, The King) as police officer Yang Sungsik
- Lee Jungeun (Parasite) as Jung Yuhee, a distraught mother
The series is the directorial debut of actor Kim Hiewon.
The series is joining a growing library of award-winning Korean content available on Disney+ including Moving, the series about a group of South Korean special agents working to protect their super-powered children from harm and exploitation at the hands of malicious government agencies, Big Bet, about the rise and fall of a serial entrepreneur who will do anything to get ahead, The Worst of Evil, Vigilante, and more.
Be sure to catch Light Shop when it airs in the second half of 2024.
