Ji Chang Wook is reportedly starring as the male lead in the new drama series Bulk (literal title).

According to OSEN on the 14th, Ji Chang Wook is reviewing his appearance in Bulk positively. The production is scheduled to commence at the end of this month, and filming is planned for the next six months.

Set against the backdrop of Gangnam’s nightlife, Bulk narrates the crime story of a team comprising police, a fixer involved in the liquor world, and a prosecutor chasing down a black connection. The series is the first television venture from Sanai Pictures, known for Korean cinematic landmarks like New World, Hunt, and Hopeless. Director Park Noo Ri, who helmed Money (2019) starring Ryu Jun Yeol, has been tabbed as the director.

In the drama, Ji Chang Wook will play a fixer working in the shadows of Gangnam’s glitzy world. His character eventually joins hands with a detective and a prosecutor to fight vicious criminal activities. Initially, Cha Eun Woo was reported to take on this role but had to withdraw due to scheduling conflicts, among other reasons. The production company quickly finalized Ji Chang Wook for the role, considering him the perfect fit for the lead in Bulk.

Alongside Ji Chang Wook, Jo Woo Jin will play a veteran detective, and Ha Yoon Kyung will become a prosecutor. Singer BIBI, known for her impressive performance in Hopeless and The Worst of Evil, is also part of the cast.

Recently, Ji Chang Wook has received acclaim for his life’s work in Disney Plus’ The Worst of Evil and is awaiting the release of his new JTBC’s Welcome to Samdalri, the TVING original Queen Woo, and the movie Revolver. Furthermore, he’s landed a role in the highly-anticipated drama Sculpture City (literal title), with a production budget of approximately 35 billion KRW (roughly 26 million USD), keeping his career on a thriving path.

Meanwhile, Bulk is an 8-part series targeting release on OTT platforms.
