When a criminal with a history of violence gets given a light sentence after beating a woman to death, the woman’s child will grow up to exact revenge in Vigilante, an all-new dark Korean drama coming November 8 exclusively to Hulu.
Based on the hit Korean webtoon of the same name by Kim Kyusam and CRG, Vigilante sees former victim Kim Jiyong grow up driven by a thirst for revenge. Tired of seeing the legal system fail and repeat offenders be set free, Jiyong spends his formative years becoming a star student at the police academy. A martial arts master and bookish academic, he uses his inside knowledge to pursue non-repentant repeat offenders and deliver his violent form of justice. But when the media catches on to his attacks, Jiyong will be forced into a cat-and-mouse game to continue pursuing criminals while avoiding being caught himself.
Directed by Choi Jeongyeol, Vigilante stars Nam Joo-hyuk (Start-Up, Twenty-Five Twenty-One) as the vengeful vigilante Kim Ji-yong; Yoo Ji-tae (Oldboy, Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area) as Jo Heon, a ruthless detective committed to stopping the vigilante at any cost; Lee Jun-hyuk (Stranger, Designated Survivor: 60 Days) as Cho Kang-ok; and Kim So-jin (The Spy Gone North, The King) as Choi Miryeo, a broadcaster who exposes the Vigilante’s actions.
Vigilante will join a whole host of award-winning Korean series now available on Hulu, including Moving, about a group of South Korean spies working to protect their super-powered children from harm and exploitation at the hands of malicious government agencies, as well as the recently released The Worst of Evil – a fast-paced crime thriller that sees volatile police officer Park Jun-mo infiltrate a dangerous new gang in an attempt to bring them down from the inside.
