Assassins And Government Agents Unleash Carnage In New Korean Drama “The Tyrant”

When a cutting-edge virus is stolen during a secret handover between Korean and US intelligence agencies, both governments will go to war to recover it in “The Tyrant” – an unmissable new Korean drama coming August 14 exclusively to Disney+.

After years of seeing their country be suppressed by foreign powers, a group of rogue scientists working within the South Korean government begin to a develop a virus that will put their country on a level playing field with the world’s most powerful nations. Referred to as “The Tyrant Project”, the virus holds limitless potential for the advancement of humanity. However, before the project can be finalized, a group of US agents uncover the plan and demand that all samples be handed over.

Unwilling to give up his research, the group’s leader hires a black ops team to retrieve his work, but when things go south during the attack, parties on both sides will be left scrambling to recover the virus and use it to advance their own ends.

Starring Jo Yoonsu (“True Beauty”, “Juvenile Justice”) as vengeful assassin Chae Jagyeong; Cha Seungwon (“Our Blues”, “A Korean Odyssey”) as cold-blooded mercenary Lim Sang; Kim Seonho (“Start-Up”, “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha”) as Director Choe, the leader of the secret Korean project; and Kim Kangwoo (“Le Grand Chef”, “Goodbye Mr. Black”) as U.S. intelligence agent Paul, “The Tyrant” is written and directed by Park Hoonjung (“New World”, “I Saw the Devil”).

Stream all four episodes of “The Tyrant” from August 14 exclusively on Disney+.
