Kim Min-seok to play lead role in second season of 'Shark'
Actor Kim Min-seok will portray the lead role in the second season of “Shark,” according to Studio Lululala Thursday.
“Shark,” a Tving original series, is a coming-of-age story about a boy named Cha Woo-sol (portrayed by Kim) who becomes an MMA champion. Woo-sol, a victim of school violence, lands in juvenile prison after stabbing a student, who cruelly bullied him for three years. In prison, Woo-sol meets former MMA champion Jung Do-hyun (portrayed by Wi Ha-joon), who teaches him how to fight.
“Shark: The Beginning” was released on Tving as a film last year.
The narrative is adapted from a Kakao Webtoon with the same title, which is currently being published on Kakaopage. The webtoon has about 1.7 million subscribers and enjoys global popularity.
The series will begin production in July.
