Good Doctor star Joo Won stars in the upcoming South Korean action-thriller Carter. Rumored to be arriving in August 2022, we’re keeping track of everything you need to know about Carter including the plot, cast, trailers, and the Netflix release date.

Carter is an upcoming South Korean Netflix Original action thriller movie directed by Jung Byung Gil.

Despite the clear and obvious popularity of Korean content on Netflix, movies have lagged behind in terms of quantity as Carter will be only the fourth South Korean movie to land on Netflix in 2022.

When is the Carter Netflix release date?

We previously heard that Carter would be coming to Netflix on August 5th, 2022, and thanks to the release of the trailer we can confirm that date is correct. Carter will be available to stream on Netflix worldwide from August 5th, 2022.

What is the plot of Carter?

Here’s the synopsis of Carter courtesy of Netflix:

Agent Carter wakes up one day in a motel room without any recollection of his identity and follows orders to join an explosive mission.

Who are the cast members of Carter?

With the Netflix release of Carter under a month away we’re surprisingly yet to learn of the full cast list. So far we only have three cast members listed for Carter:

  • Joo Won as Carter
  • Lee Sung Jae as Kim Jong Hyuk
  • Kim Bo Min

Joo Won will make his Netflix debut as the title character of Carter. The popular South Korean actor is famous for his portrayal of Park Shi On in the Good Doctor, which was eventually adapted into an American medical drama of the same name featuring Freddie Highmore.

Despite being the tender age of 11 years old, actress Kim Bo Min has already seen more experience on screen than some adult actors. Most recently, she featured in The Silent Sea in the role of Han Ha Jin. The young actress also starred in guest roles in the licensed Netflix k-drama The King: Eternal Monarch and Chocolate.
