NETFLIX TO LAUNCH KOREAN ACTION-THRILLER DRAMA "VAGABOND" IN SEPTEMBER

SEOUL, May 8, 2019 - Netflix Inc., the world's leading Internet entertainment service, announced that Vagabond, an action-packed Korean espionage drama series, starring Lee Seung-gi (The King 2 Hearts, A Korean Odyssey) and Bae Suzy (Architecture 101, While You Were Sleeping), will launch globally in September, and that it will be available on Netflix exclusively, outside Korea.

Vagabond is a story about a stuntman Cha Dal-geon, played by Lee Seung-gi, who gets involved in a tragic airplane crash and ends up discovering a national corruption scandal in the process. Bae Suzy plays Go Hae-ri, the oldest daughter of a deceased marine, who decides to work for the National Intelligence Service as a secret ops agent in order to support her mom and younger siblings, although all she wanted to do was to become an ordinary civil servant.

This is Lee and Bae's second time playing opposite each other since their leading roles in Gu Family Book premiered in 2013. Before acting, the two were also famous for their singing career. Lee Seung-gi has numerous hit songs that earned him the title 'ballad prince,' while Bae Suzy, whose stage name is Suzy, was a member of the K-pop girl group, Miss A.

Vagabond boasts some spectacular filming locations outside Korea, such as Lisbon, Portugal and a few spots throughout Morocco.

The series is directed by Yoo In-shik (Mrs. Cop, Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim) and co-written by Jang Young-chul and Jung Kyung-soon, which is the trio's fourth collaboration to date. The series is produced by Celltrion Entertainment, a Korean production and artist management company under the Celltrion Group.

Celltrion Entertainment CEO Park Jae-sam says, "We are delighted at the prospect of Vagabond being able to showcase the premium quality of Korean content to a global audience, as K-drama fans from around the world will be able to watch the show exclusively on Netflix."

"We are so thrilled to announce Vagabond's launch on Netflix. This title has a lot to offer, which I believe will definitely generate viewer excitement. Its production quality is top notch, and it's packed with detailed cinematic action scenes and impressive VFX," says Don Kang, Director of Korean Content Acquisition at Netflix.
