Disney+ Bloody Heart – After four years of subjugating himself to the whims of the country’s nobility to protect his position as ruler, King Tae prepares to throw off his last remaining shackle and take revenge on those who have oppressed him for far too long in Bloody Heart, the latest Korean drama set to arrive on Disney+, May 2.

Set in the fictional court of King Lee Tae, Bloody Heart focuses on the complex web of deception the King must weave to overcome Vice Minister Park Gyewon and the Korean nobility who have suppressed the house of Joseon for multiple generations. Released from his constraints by an unexpected event, the King begins to carry out his plan to restore power to the court and become the leader he is convinced he was born to be. Surreptitiously undermining Gyewon at every turn, King Tae slowly begins to achieve his goals until the woman who captured his heart years before suddenly appears and threatens to derail everything he’s been working towards. 

Starring Lee Joon (The Silent Sea, The Immortal) as King Lee Tae; Kang Han-na (My Roommate is a Gumiho, Start-Up) as his forbidden love interest, Yoo Jeong; and Jang Hyuk (Tell Me What You Saw, My Country) as scheming Vice Minister Park Gyewon, Bloody Heart is a period piece set during the Joseon Dynasty that perfectly blends deception, betrayal, and impossible choices to tell a story that will leave viewers desperate for more.

Bloody Heart is the latest Korean drama to join the ever-growing library of world-class content available on Disney+. Fans of Korean stories can also enjoy the recently released series Soundtrack #1 about unrequited love between two close friends; the edge-of-your-seat mystery-thriller Grid about a shadowy figure who once saved humanity, but who has now been identified as an accomplice to a murderer; Rookie Cops, a campus romance drama that follows the lives of a group of reckless freshmen at the Korean National Police Academy; the breakout sensation Snowdrop starring BLACKPINK’s Jisoo in a story about a university student who goes against her family and her country to help the man she loves; and many other exciting stories from across the globe.

Start streaming Bloody Heart from May 2nd on Disney+.
