Movie star Kim Dong-wook will debut on the streaming platform with TV’s upcoming series “The King of Pigs” on March 18.

Kim, 38, stars as Hwang Kyung-min, who has been bullied at school in the past and is being investigated by police as the prime suspect in a serial murder case .

Actor Kim Sung-kyu plays detective Jung Jong-suk, who seeks to uncover the truth behind the murders.

Adapted from the 90-minute animation of the same title by “Hellbound” director Yeon Sang-ho, “The King of Pigs” is a vivid tale set in a modern society shaped by violence.

Although the two characters first met in middle school, they grew apart after Hwang Kyung-min was bullied at school.

The original animation won three awards at the 2011 Busan International Film Festival, including Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema, Movie Collage, and Directors Award. It was also the first Korean animated film to premiere at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
