“My Name” is an upcoming Korean series, starring Han So-hee, Park Hee-son, and Ahn Bo-hyun. It is scheduled to be released for streaming on Netflix worldwide on October 15, 2021.
Since the release of its teasers, trailers, and posters, the drama is now one of the highly anticipated show on Netflix, after the viral hit, “Squid Game”.
Here are three things to expect from the series:
1. It is a spunky female journey.
“My Name” centers around a vengeful daughter who joins the police force as a mole to discover the truth and seek justice for her father’s death. She will leave her name behind as Yoon Ji-woo, cut her hair short, take combat skills, rename and live her life anew as Oh Hye-jin.
From a vulnerable character of Yoo Nabi in “Nevertheless”, Han So-hee takes on a badass and feisty fighter in “My Name”.
Anticipation for the drama increases as the released clips and stills reveal her new role involving stunts, boxing gloves, a wounded face, gun, knife, and fight scenes with a group of thugs.
It is reported that the actress trained hard for this spunky female journey. She took action classes during weekdays and had much fun filming the action scenes.
2. It is a dark, action-filled, crime-thriller series.
Driven by rage and determined to search for the culprit of her father’s murder, Han So-hee’s character joins a notorious crime organization led by the actor Park Hee-son who will portray the role of a mafia boss as Choi Moo-jin.
Following the advice of the drug lord, she joins the police force as a mole where she will be partnered with the actor Ahn Bo-hyun who takes the role of a senior detective known to be a strict observer of rules.
The lives of three characters will entertwine during the process of investigation, revealing ulterior motives and putting more tension and suspense in the plot. Possibly stuck amid the brawl, Han So-hee’s character navigates on her own to avenge her father.
As the show is directed by Kim Jin-min who spearheaded the hit crime-thriller dramas, “Lawless Lawyer (2018) and “Extracurricular (2020), “My Name” is expected to be gritty, dark, violent, and action-filled.
The poster alone imparts a seemingly intense plot where it is smeared in dark colors and bloodied characters with the message, “No one can know. My enemy, my revenge.”
3. It talks about the power of revenge and love for family.
The drama is not only packed with action scenes, but the released clips also convey depth in its storyline relevant to life’s experiences such as committing crimes being linked to revenge.
The Netflix trailer unveils a shook birthday celebrant who saw her father get murdered in front of her eyes. Indignant for the love of her father, she cries out for justice and revenge, “Who killed my dad? I’m going to kill him.”
A mafia leader directs her, “If you want to kill him, you have to be a person who can kill people.”
The power of revenge moves her into intense action, urges her to live a life of two names and identities, and takes her to a world of aggression. “My life has no purpose if I can’t kill him. I’m willing to be a monster,” she said.
With such interesting action-filled plot and talented cast, “My Name” will certainly move us to another jaw-dropping Korean entertainment with a female badass role.
The series is scheduled to stream worldwide on October 15th, exclusively on Netflix.
