An action-thriller drama about two men who are trying to solve the mess after firearms is suddenly widely available in South Korea, which used to be a gun-free country, through an unknown source.

Who are the cast members of Trigger?

At the time of writing only two cast members have been confirmed for Trigger; Kim Nam Gil plays the role of Lee Do, meanwhile Kim Young Kwang as Moon Baek.

Kim Nam Gil has yet to star in a Netflix Original, however, the actor will be making his debut for the streamer in the upcoming K-drama Song of the Bandits. He is most well known for his leading roles in Korean movies such as Pandora, The Shameless, and The Pirates.

What is the production status of Trigger?

Official Production Status: Pre-Production (Last Updated: 21/06/2023)

Filming is currently scheduled to take place between early November 2023 and early May 2024.

All filming dates are subject to change. This means filming could start earlier than initially reported or be delayed.

When is the Trigger Netflix release date?

At the time of writing Trigger is listed for an unspecified 2025 Netflix release date.

Taking into consideration that filming doesn’t end until May 2024, we’d have been extremely lucky to see Trigger arrive on Netflix before the end of the year.

Trigger will be released sometime in the first half of 2025.
