The talented actor Kang Ha Neul of “Moon Lovers” and “When The Camellia Blooms managed to create totally contrasting characters.
In June, Kang Ha Neul returns with “Insider,” a crime-thriller drama starring other stars like Lee Yoo Young, Heo Sung Tae, and more. Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing will also make a cameo in the series.
In this gripping drama, Kim Yo Han (Kang Ha Neul) is an intern in the judiciary. Tragic circumstances struck his family. While working undercover to investigate the alleged corruption of a prosecutor, he finds himself in the dreaded Seongju prison. Realizing that he has been betrayed by unseen forces, he decides to take revenge on those who wronged him and his family, his life’s mission.
Kim Yo Han’s fellow inmates have their sights set on him and threaten to completely destroy him in the lawless prison of Seongju, despite him being blessed with incredible intellectual abilities and remarkable fighting ability. However, he may have found an unconventional ally in the form of a sleazy female entrepreneur named Oh Soo Yeon (Lee Yoo Young). To avenge her mother, she builds her own financial empire and demands to team up with Kim Yo Han to overthrow the forces that rule the underground power. Oh Soo Yeon will be a strong support and an important ally of Kim Yo Han.
“Insider” will be a stark contrast to Kang Ha Neul’s previous role in “When The Camellia Blooms,” as the actor has completely ditched his cute and positive image. It also received a lot of praise from “Insider” director Min Yeon Hong, who expressed his pride in the collaboration.
The director shared: “This work would not exist without Kang Ha Neul. After a year of working together, I have more confidence in him. I am happy and proud to be able to work with Kang Ha Neul for this drama.”
“Squid Game” star Heo Tae Sung is also a cast member.
Although it is a television series, the colors and setting of “Insider” are filled with cinematic atmospheres. According to director Min Yeon Hong, it shows the dedication and effort of the entire production team with the desire to provide audiences with the experience of watching 16 episodes as if they were enjoying a feature film.
