Philippines. April 12, 2023 – When a serial abuser gets given a light sentence after beating and killing a woman in front of her young child, the child will spend years obsessing over revenge and delivering justice in Vigilante, a thrilling new dark Korean drama coming exclusively to Disney+ later this year.
Tired of seeing the legal system fail, and repeat offenders being set free, Kim Jiyong decides to step up and do something about it. A star student at the police academy, Jiyong is a burgeoning martial arts master, a bookish academic, and has spent over a decade haunted by the image of his mother being beaten and murdered in front of him by a stranger with a bad temper. When his mother’s attacker is set free, Jiyong pursues the man, and catches him in the middle of another attack. Exacting his revenge on the non-repentant offender, Jiyong is set along a path that will see him target other repeat offenders, and unwittingly draw media and police attention. Unwilling to give up on his mission, Jiyong must use the knowledge gained at the police academy to exact his revenge and avoid being caught.
Starring Nam Joohyuk (Start-Up, Twenty Five Twenty-One) as the vengeful vigilante Kim Jiyong; Yoo Jitae (Oldboy, Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area) as Jo Heon, a ruthless detective committed to stopping the Vigilante at any cost; Lee Junhyuk (Stranger, Designated Survivor: 60 Days) as Cho Kangok; and Kim Sojin (The Spy Gone North, The King) as Choi Miryeo, a broadcaster who exposes the Vigilante’s actions; Vigilante is directed by Choi Jeongyeol and based on the popular webtoon of the same name by CRG and Kim Kyusam.
