Paramount+ Expands Korean Slate With Two New Dramas

Paramount+ has expanded its Korean content slate with two new dramas to be co-developed with TVING: A Bloody Lucky Day and Queen Woo.

The thriller A Bloody Lucky Day sees an ordinary taxi driver become entangled with a customer who turns out to be a serial killer. In the period drama Queen Woo, Korea’s King Ko Nam Moo dies, sparking a fierce battle between his brothers’ tribes and a race to marry one of them in order to inherit the throne.

A Bloody Lucky Day is directed by Pil Gam-Sung (Hostage: Missing Celebrity) and written by Kim Min-sung and Song Hanna. It is produced by CJ ENM’s production house Studio Dragon, The Great Show and Studio N and stars Lee Sung-min (Reborn Rich), Yoo Yeon-seok (Hospital Playlist) and Lee Jung-eun (Parasite, Yonder).

Queen Woo is directed by Jung Se-kyo (Oh! My Gran) and written by Lee Byoung-hak (The Royal Tailor). Jun Jong-See (Bargain) has been cast as Queen Woo.

“We are incredibly proud of our Korean content that is finally taking the global stage, engaging viewers and fans on Paramount+ and beyond,” said Catherine Park, senior VP and head of streaming and regional lead for Asia at Paramount. “The addition of A Bloody Lucky Day and Queen Woo strengthens our global content offering, and we look forward to bringing more original Korean content to our viewers worldwide.”

Hye-jung Hwang, chief content officer at TVING said, “Recently, colorful TVING original series in different genres such as fantasy action, thriller and historical drama have entered the global awards ceremony competition both domestically and abroad. We will continue to expand the global competitiveness of K-content with well-made original series that feature a large scale and a unique worldview.”
