The Netflix series Black Knight has begun to emerge with the release of its first teaser poster. The series follows the journey of refugee Sa-wol, and the legendary deliveryman 5-8, as he takes on the all-powerful Cheonmyeong Group in a dystopian version of Korea. The country is ravaged by extreme air pollution, rendering it uninhabitable without an oxygen mask.

When the first-look still of Kim Woo-bin portraying the legendary deliveryman ‘5-8’ was released in January, it sparked a wave of excitement among fans. In “a world without air”, the deliverymen, also known as the black knights, deliver oxygen and necessities to the 1% of the population who lived through the extreme desertification.

The first teaser poster for Black Knight offers a glimpse into the series’s setting, a world completely engulfed in sand. A used oxygen mask lies discarded on a barren landscape, where the ruins of collapsed high-rise buildings loom in the distance with no signs of life. A figure resembling the legendary deliveryman 5-8 walks away from a massive truck, leaving viewers with a sense of intrigue for the story to unfold.

The bar is set high, as all eyes are on the fantastic ensemble of seasoned actors. Kim Woo-bin plays the legendary deliveryman, a.k.a ‘5-8’, Song Seung-heon as the only heir to the powerful Cheonmyeong Group, Kang You-seok as a boy who dreams of becoming a deliveryman and Esom as the Defense Intelligence Command major. These characters bring depth and complexity to the narrative, each with unique perspectives and motivations.

Director Cho Ui-Seok, known for his tightly-knit narrative and cathartic action sequences, spearheads the production.

Black Knight is set to premiere in the  second quarter of 2023 only on Netflix.
