Lee Je Hoon, Esom, Kim Eui Sung, And APRIL’s Naeun Confirmed For Upcoming Drama
The four actors have confirmed their casting in SBS’s upcoming drama “Deluxe Taxi” (literal title). Lee Je Hoon, Esom, and Naeun were previously reported to be in talks for their roles.
Based on a webtoon of the same name, “Deluxe Taxi” is about a mysterious taxi service that takes revenge on behalf of victims who are unable to get justice from the law. It is being directed by Park Joon Woo (“Doctor Detective”) and written by Oh Sang Ho (“Fabricated City,” “Code Name: Jackal”).
Lee Je Hoon plays Kim Do Gi, a former special forces officer who works as a driver for the taxi service. He is a unique taxi driver who combines innate intuition, sharp judgment, and unwavering boldness, as well as physical action skills that can hold its own against multiple opponents.
Esom plays Kang Ha Na, a prosecutor who is like a bulldozer in her pursuit of justice. Armed with beauty, an elite education, and an open and honest personality, she has one fault: she tends to turn violent when she comes face-to-face with injustice. While chasing down a missing ex-convict, she gets suspicious about the mysterious taxi driver Kim Do Gi.
Ki Eui Sung plays Jang Sung Cheol, the CEO of the mysterious taxi service. He is the head of the operation to punish those who take advantage of the powerless in the blindspot of the justice system. He is warm and gentle with victims, but absolutely ruthless when it comes to finding perpetrators.
Naeun plays Go Eun, a hacker employed at the taxi service who is skilled at finding and exposing people’s personal information. She is an expert at using all digital devices, from CCTV, smartphones, to computers, and will act as Kim Do Gi’s eyes and ears.
The production staff stated, “We planned this drama with the aim of giving viewers refreshing entertainment. This got off to a good start through the casting of Lee Je Hoon, Esom, Kim Eui Sung, and Naeun. Please look forward to ‘Deluxe Taxi,’ which will resolve the stress of viewers through its storyline about heroes fighting against evil.”
“Deluxe Taxi” will air sometime in 2021.
