On the 31st, an official reported to Daily Sports, “Kim Dong Wook is starring in the K-drama The King of Pigs.” In the series, he plays Hwang Kyung Min, the CEO of Shin Seok Transportation, a victim of school violence. He had buried the pain deep to hide it and grew up as an adult. Now, he has a peaceful marriage with his beloved wife and attempts to live a happy life by receiving regular psychiatric treatments. However, when he faced an inevitable incident, he intensely relives the trauma. And eventually, he takes action for revenge.
