If you’ve seen the teaser trailer for Bloodhounds (check it out below!), you can certainly tell it’s action-packed. The characters are throwing punches left and right! Well, if that’s your thing, then you’ll be happy to know the series is now streaming on Netflix.

Not only is it a new show, but it’s also the latest Korean drama to be added to the streamer’s catalog. And the genre has seen success on Netflix. The series stars Woo Do-hwan as Kim Geon-woo, Lee Sang-yi as Hong Woo-jin, Park Sung-woong as Kim Myeong-gil, and Huh Joon-ho as President Cho.

So what’s the eight-episode show all about? What can you expect to see? We’ve got the answer for you below!

What is Bloodhounds on Netflix about?

It’s two young men against the world. Or, well, the loan shark world. Kim Geon-woo and Hong Woo-jin work together to be heroes of sorts.

The rookie boxers know how to throw punches! And they use their skills, with the help of moneylender President Choi, to bring down “evil loan shark” Kim Myeon-gil, per the synopsis. The loan shark targets those who are financially desperate, which is why the duo is motivated to stop his illegal work. Check out the video below!

Even before the writer’s strike, Netflix saw massive success with K-dramas. Depending on how long the strike lasts, the streamer will probably rely on its international titles for quite some time. Whatever the reason or whether it’s both, the company has invested $2.5 billion in Korean productions! So if you’re hoping for more K-dramas to come your way, there definitely will be.

Bloodhounds is now streaming on Netflix.
