Disney+ has announced an all-star cast for its upcoming Korean original series, Connect, featuring Jung Hae-in, Ko Kyung-po and more.

The new crime thriller series, which was announced on September 7, is set to follow a man who is suddenly kidnapped by an organ harvesting gang. He wakes up after the procedure to find one of his eyes missing, but finds he is still able to see through his missing eye, which is now being used by an infamous serial killer.

Connect will star Jung Hae-in (Snowdrop, Start-Up) as the series’ main character, Ha Dong-soo, a man with the secret ability to recover from any injury immediately, even if his life is in danger. Ko Kyung-po (Decision To Leave, Seoul Vibe) was cast alongside Jung as the series’ main antagonist, Oh Jin-seop, a serial killer terrorizing the people of Seoul. Meanwhile, Kim Hye-jun (Kingdom) will play the role of the mysterious first wife Irang.

The upcoming Disney+ series will be helmed by acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Miike Takashi, previously known for his work on 13 Assassins, Ichi The Killer, and Gozu, among others. Nakamura Masaru and Heo Dam (Monstrum) are part of this project as screenwriters. While a definitive premiere date and teasers for Connect have yet to be revealed, they are expected to release “soon”, according to Disney+.
