Choi Min-shik becomes Disney+’s Casino king
As we head closer to the finale of Kiss Sixth Sense, it’s prime time to check in on one of Disney+’s upcoming shows: the highly anticipated crime-action blockbuster Casino.
All eyes, of course, are on the legendary Choi Min-shik (In Our Prime) whose last drama was MBC’s Love and Separation, which aired in 1997-1998. Having focused on films for most of his career, Casino marks his first drama in over 20 years.
The story has Choi in the role of a casino king who suddenly loses everything in an unexpected turn of events. In order to get it all back, he enters into a dangerous gamble that puts his legacy — and survival — on the line. Joining him are Ryu Hyun-kyung (Doctor Detective), playing the head of investigations at South Korea’s National Tax Office, and Lee Kyu-hyung (Voice 4), playing Choi Min-shik’s younger counterpart.
There isn’t much information on the other characters as of yet, but we do have an impressive lineup including Sohn Seok-gu (My Liberation Notes), Lee Dong-hwi (SF8), and Heo Sung-tae (Insider). This past week, it was also reported that Jung Woong-in (Rose Mansion) will be joining the cast as well.
Written and directed by Kang Yoon-sung (Long Live the King, The Outlaws), Disney+’s Casino will be launching towards the end of 2022.
