I’m really excited for this newly announced drama! It comes from the writer of Forest Of Secrets aka Stranger, one of the best shows I have ever seen. The writer has also penned dramas like Life and Grid. The new drama is titled Dominant Species and it has confirmed a terrific cast. The sc-fi genre plot sounds intriguing too.

Dominant Species is set in a world where animal meat is no longer used in food. This is an era of cultivated meat consumption. BF is a huge company that produces genetically engineered cultured meat and is the main player in this category. The story is about the growing suspicions with respect to this firm’s CEO, played by Han Hyo Joo. Joo Ji Hoon plays a bodyguard and a former soldier who gradated from naval academy. Lee Hee Joon (The Legend of the Blue Sea) stars as the prime minister, Lee Moo Saeng (Thirty Nine) plays the founding member of BF with a PhD in physiology and Park Ji Yeon (Bloody Heart) stars as a lawyer and the head of BF’s planning department.

I have always liked Han Hyo Joo, ever since I first saw her in drama Brilliant Legacy (2009). She last appeared in Happiness (2021). Joo Ji Hoon has been very active in dramas for past few years, having worked in shows like Kingdom, Hyena and Jirisan.

Dominant Species is slated to air in 2023.
