The upcoming action thriller K-drama is based on the popular webtoon of the same name.

Joining Nam Joo Hyuk as the lead star is Lee Joon Hyuk, who is set to play Cho Kang OK, the vice chairman of DK Group and the creator of “Vigilante.” He designed “Vigilante” due to his fascination with heroes.

Yoo Ji Tae from “Money Heist Korea” will portray Cho Heon, the head of the investigation team at the Metropolitan Investigation Unit.

Adding to the list of lead stars is Kim So Jin from “Through the Darkness,” who took the role of Choi Mi Ryeo.

Set to air sometime in 2023, it is still undecided whether to air “Vigilante” on OTT platforms or broadcast networks.

Interestingly, the upcoming webtoon-based series is Nam Joo Hyuk’s follow-up project after the mega-hit K-drama “Twenty-Five Twenty-One” with Kim Tae Ri.

It is also his first project since he got involved in the controversy.

The sighting of the actor comes months after his name was dragged into school violence and bullying issues.

In June, three accusers came forward and claimed that Nam Joo Hyuk used to be a bully back in high school.

The third accuser even accused the actor of sexually harassing them in their senior year.

Amid the controversy, his agency, Management SOOP, denied the allegations and announced that they had taken legal actions against the reporter and the publication that first released the issue to protect the actor’s image.
