PARAMOUNT+ REVEALS OFFICIAL TRAILER AND KEY ART FOR KOREAN THRILLER SERIES "BARGAIN"

The Award-Winning Series Will Make Its North American Debut At Toronto International Film Festival in September After Successful Runs At Canneseries and Seriencamp

BARGAIN Will Have Its Exclusive Paramount+ Premiere Globally on October 5th

August 30, 2023 - Paramount+ today debuted the official trailer and key art for the upcoming festival-award-winning South Korean dystopian thriller series BARGAIN. All six episodes will premiere on Thursday, October 5 on Paramount+ in the U.S, the UK, Canada, Australia, Latin America, Brazil, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

In BARGAIN, men are lured to a remote hotel under the guise of sexual encounters only to be caught in a trafficking ring where their organs are auctioned off to the highest bidder. After a catastrophic earthquake, the victims, traffickers and buyers all are trapped inside the crumbling building. Cut off from the outside world, they must fight to survive the aftermath at any cost.

BARGAIN stars actors Jin Sun-kyu (Extreme Job), Jun Jong-seo (Money Heist: Korea) and Chang Ryul (My Name) and is an adaptation of director Lee Chung-hyun's award-winning short film of the same name that was released in 2015. Director and writer Jeon Woo-sung, who was part of the production team of the original short film, picked up the story and developed it into a six-part series. The series is co-written by Choi Byeong-yun and Kwak Jae-min and executive produced by showrunner and creator Byun Seungmin and Bang Jin Ho.

BARGAIN was developed by Paramount+ and TVING through a partnership between Paramount and the Korean entertainment powerhouse CJ ENM. In Korea, Paramount+ is a branded zone within TVING, a CJ ENM-controlled streaming platform with current operations in Korea. The deal also allows Korean content to flow to Paramount's overseas streaming operations. BARGAIN is licensed by Paramount Global Content Distribution outside of Korea, Japan and Taiwan.

BARGAIN was awarded the Critics' Choice Award at Seriencamp Festival in Cologne in June and won Best Screenplay at Canneseries Festival earlier this year. BARGAIN also is an official 2023 Toronto International Film Festival selection, where it will have its North American premiere on September 9.
