Starring legendary “Old Boy” actor Choi Minsik and “My Liberation Notes” star Sohn Seokgu, the series is directed by the award-winning Kang Yoonseong
On December 21, step into the shoes of a man who has repeatedly hit rock bottom and is determined to reclaim his life, no matter the cost, when Big Bet debuts globally only on Disney+ Hotstar.
Starring the legendary Choi Minsik (Old Boy, The Admiral: Roaring Currents, New World) in his first appearance in a drama series in over 26 years, Big Bet tells the unforgettable tale of a man, Cha Moosik, who, after a hard time in life, builds himself up from nothing to become a casino mogul in the Philippines. As the story progresses, Cha once again finds himself at rock bottom when he is investigated as part of a murder case. Determined not to let life beat him down yet again, Cha will risk everything he has, including his own life, to get himself back in the game.
Big Bet also stars Sohn Seokgu, a versatile genre-spanning actor who previously starred in My Liberation Notes, Romance Without Love, and D.P., and who also recently made his directorial debut in Unframed; as well as Lee Donghwi, who brought his larger-than-life presence to Extreme Job, New Year Blues, Method Acting, and the widely popular Reply 1988; and Heo Sungtae who quickly became a fan favorite last year with his work in Squid Game, and later with Adamas and Hunt.
At the helm of Big Bet is Kang Yoonseong, the winner of the Best New Director at the 54th Baeksang Arts Awards and the 23rd Chunsa Film Art Awards. With The Outlaws, a Korean box-office hit praised for its high-voltage action sequences and tense narrative that garnered over 6.88 million admissions following its 2017 opening, under his belt, Kang’s distinctively powerful and spectacular directorial vision is yet another feature that makes Big Bet worthy of the hype.
Enjoy Big Bet this December 21, exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar.
