The solo singer-songwriter Kang Daniel becomes the thrillingly charming ESC Secret Agent K, the lead in the upcoming series “Agent Blackjack K.” In the 34-second teaser, Kang Daniel is shown in a pair of contrasting concepts: one is in a dark room where he is shown wearing a formal suit and the other in a white office-looking setting, where his bespectacled version wears more casual clothing.
“To keep the peace of the Earth, Agent K is set on a secret mission,” the Korean caption stated. Additionally, the poster for the upcoming show provides more detail on its premise. “Aliens have infiltrated the Earth, disguising as humans. The greatest mind game starts to send them back!”
