Esquire / "Delivery Knight" Webtoon

One of the hottest actors of the Korean entertainment industry, Kim WooBin is reportedly set to return to the small screen with a Netflix adaptation of the webtoon "Delivery Knight" by Lee YungYun. It was announced to be adapted into a drama earlier this year, making this drama one of the numerous webtoon adaptations of 2021.

The webtoon is set in a dystopian future where air pollution has gotten so dangerous that it is nearly impossible to go out. In such a time, delivery agents, known gloriously as "Delivery Knights" in the webtoon, take on the responsibility of bringing people's packages to their doorstep, safely.

Kim WooBin is reportedly in talks to play the male lead of the drama, alongside Esom who has been offered the role of the female lead. While the official statement from Kim WooBin's agency, AM Entertainment, does not state the name of the character he received an offer for, it is most likely to be the protagonist of the story, "5-8".

Here's a look at the webtoon!
