There’s another K-drama remake of a US show coming, so many now that I’ve lost count. Big names ones include Designated Survivor, Suits, The Good Wife, and Criminal Minds, and now there will be a remake of insurance investigator turned good criminals show Leverage. The K-version has cast Lee Dong Gun as the male lead and he’ll be joined by Jeon Hye Bin and Kim Sae Ron to fill out his band of merry heisters. The show is about an insurance investigator burned by the system who turns to stealing from criminals to distribute the ill-gotten gains to those in need. The drama will be helmed by the PD of Tunnel and Voice 3 with a scheduled September 2019 premiere date.
