Actor So Ji-sub was cast in a new South Korean original action series, Netflix said Friday.

The webtoon of the same name revolves around Nam, a notorious former gangster with excellent physical fighting skills who returns to the dark world to get revenge for the death of his brother, Ki-seok (Lee Joon-hyuk of The Roundup: No Way Out). The series will be helmed by director Choi Sung-eun who produced the action series Tong: Memories, which was also adapted from a digital comic.
