Additionally, for fans of actor Jung Hae In, you are in for a treat, because you’ll get to see him again in action.

Netflix, the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, confirmed an impressive roster of actors for its new original series D.P.

Narrating, the story of a young army private who unexpectedly becomes a desertion arrest officer, he finds himself in confusing and complicated situations.

D.P. is an acronym for ‘Deserter Pursuit,’ a unit within the Army’s Military Police for tracking down AWOL soldiers. With this novel premise and a close look into issues within the military, the original webtoon by Kim Bo-tong was a huge hit that attracted over 10 million readers in Korea.
