Teabing’s original ‘The King of Pigs’ confirmed the casting of Kim Dong-wook, Kim Seong-gyu, and Chae Jung-an.
Teabing’s original ‘The King of Pigs’ is a thriller drama that tells the story of those who bring out ‘memories of violence’ due to a mysterious serial murder that started with a message from a friend 20 years ago.
In particular, the original work of ‘The King of Pigs’, which contains the origins of violence in our society, including school violence, through characters with a tragic fate, is a feature-length animation directed by Yeon Sang-ho of the same name and has already been recognized for its workability through numerous film festivals, including the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. I’ve received it, so I’m paying attention. Among these, the lineup built with Kim Dong-wook, Kim Seong-gyu, and Chae Jung-an is raising expectations for the drama even more.
Kim Dong-wook takes on the role of Hwang Kyung-min, who lives without forgetting the memories of school violence 20 years ago. The character Hwang Kyung-min is enjoying a happy life with his beloved wife, and an unexpected incident brings him back to the trauma of 20 years ago. I am already curious about the character Hwang Kyung-min that will be drawn by Kim Dong-wook, who has been well-received in every work he appears with his delicate emotional description and charming voice.
Kim Seong-gyu takes on the role of Jeong Jong-seok, a detective who tracks messages from a friend 20 years ago. Jung Jong-suk is a character who struggles to prevent further murders while chasing a mysterious message from his friend, recalling the violence he suffered 20 years ago. Kim Seong-gyu, who clearly showed his color with his strong acting, is paying attention to what kind of image he will show in this work.

Lastly, Chae Jung-an will play the role of Kang Jin-ah, a charismatic detective who is a strong-willed principledist and is obsessed with cases. Kang Jin-ah is Jong-seok’s senior police officer in the play and is a strong-willed police officer who is not shaken in any case, although there is a lot of resentment within the team due to the arbitrary investigation. The first police performance that Chae Jung-an, who has a colorful charm, will show, stimulates curiosity.
Meanwhile, the production team of ‘The King of Pigs’ said, “Through ‘The King of Pigs’, we want to look back at the origins of the violence that is prevalent in our society. I will make it to satisfy the pleasure of the thriller genre, so please watch it with a lot of interest and affection.”
Teabing’s original ‘The King of Pigs’ begins filming in August and is scheduled to be released exclusively on Teabing.
