Netflix Picks Up South Korean Thriller Series ‘My Name’

Netflix has announced that they have picked up the distribution rights to the South Korean revenge thriller TV series ‘My Name.’ The show is made by Studio Santa Claus with Kim Jin-min handling the directing duties and KIm Va-da handling the writing.
The show follows Han So-hee as a young woman who is searching for her father’s killer in a “revenge-driven” quest. The tagline reads, “No one can know. My enemy, my revenge.”
Han So-hee is joined in the cast by  Park Hee-soon, Ahn Bo-hyun, Kim Sang-ho, Lee Hak-ju, and Jang Yull.
Netflix also released a teaser poster with a release date:

According to Netflix, they have “confirmed the October 15th release date for My Name with the release of its teaser poster. My Name is about A revenge-driven woman who joins a crime ring and becomes an undercover police officer in order to find her father’s killer. Director Kim Jin-min has previously teamed up with Netflix for his much acclaimed Extracurricular, an unconventional story about the darker side of high school teens. My Name, his much anticipated second collaboration with Netflix, makes its appearance with the unveiling of its teaser poster.”
They continue, “It is accompanied by the haunting image of Han So-hee, the likes of which viewers have never seen before. Her portrayal of Jiwoo in My Name takes a 180-degree turn from her other well-known characters as Yeo Da-gyeong in The World of the Married and Yu Na-bi in Nevertheless,. In the poster, she is standing in a dark alleyway with deep scratches on her face and a gleaming dagger in her blood-stained hand, looking as if she had just survived fierce combat. Han So-hee, who performed the difficult action scenes herself, is convincing as Jiwoo, a woman who willingly enters a criminal underworld to avenge her father’s murder and becomes a mole in the police force using an alias. She’ll stop at nothing for revenge and comes face-to-face with brutal truths.”
