Kim Nam Gil Transforms Into A Slave-Turned-Bandit In Upcoming Historical Fiction Drama

Netflix’s upcoming original drama “Song of the Bandits” has dropped its first still!

“Song of the Bandits” is an action adventure set in 1920 where people throw a fierce punch of defiance to those who have chased them away from their homes in order to protect their land, family, and comrades. Through fictional characters, the history of defeat will be turned into a history of victory. The project has already gained much attention for dealing with the subject of the Korean independence movement as well as for having an estimated production cost of 30 billion won (approximately $25 million).

Kim Nam Gil will take on the role of Lee Yoon, a slave who never learned anything nor had the opportunity to. Although the class system was abolished and he became a free man, he still has the mindset of a slave. His former master suggests for him to become a soldier, so he does as he is told and ends up getting involved in a war.

Writer Han Jung Hoon and director Hwang Jun Hyuk team up again for “Song of the Bandits” after having delivered spectacular, exhilarating action and drama with their previous projects including “Bad Guys: Vile City” and “Squad 38.”

The drama is set to premiere in the third quarter of 2023. Stay tuned for more updates!
