Netflix confirms casting of Joo Won for Korean original series Carter

Director Jung Byung-gil of The Villainess welcomes Joo Won to the cast of his explosive chase film as Agent Carter

Netflix has confirmed Joo Won as the lead for Carter, a new original series about an agent suffering from memory loss who is thrown into the middle of a mysterious mission.

Joo Won, who played powerful roles in Good doctor, Yong-pal,  transforms into an action hero in Director Jung Byung-gil’s new work.

In the popular drama Alice, which involved car chases and hand-to-hand combat, Joo Won exhibited his great skill in performing action scenes.

The role of Carter will challenge him with even more extreme and exciting action. In the series, Carter is a top agent who awakens one day with a complete loss of memory, but is then thrown into the mission of a lifetime. Joo Won will portray the character’s inner struggle as he deals with the uncertainties of his mission.

At the helm of the series is director Jung Byung-gil, whose skilled hands have produced many unique action films. Carter, his collaboration with Netflix, is expected to present a cathartic experience for viewers with high-quality, difficult to execute, nonstop action.

Carter will be available exclusively on Netflix.
