Ju Jihoon (Kingdom) and Lee Jungeun (Parasite) will star in the upcoming drama from Moving screenwriter Kangfull, Light Shop. The series will arrive exclusively to Disney+ (Hulu in the United States) in 2024. The mystery drama explores life, death, and what makes us human.
Light Shop adapts Kangfull’s hit webtoon of the same name. This is one of the many recent live-action adaptations of popular webtoon series such as Marry My Husband. Ju Jihoon stars along with Park Boyung, Bae Seongwoo, and more.
The series is the latest to join the ever-growing catalog of Korean entertainment shows now available on Disney+. This includes international hit Moving, which follows a group of South Korean special agents working to protect their super-powered children from harm. There’s also Big Bet, The Worst of Evil, Vigilante, and more.
What is Light Shop About
Light Shop follows a group of strangers, each struggling to come to terms with a traumatic event in their past. Going about their daily lives, each individual is mysteriously drawn to a light shop that sits at the end of a seedy alleyway. Guarded by a vigilant shopkeeper, the light shop could hold the key to the strangers’ pasts, presents and futures.
