The movie depicts a broader worldview than webtoons by including stories about what caused Seok-Hwan to have such a unique ability to resurrect.
Koo Kyo-Hwan rose to prominence for his roles in Netflix’s “D.P.,” “Peninsula,” and “Escape from Mogadishu.” In the new movie “Reawakened Man,” he will play Seok-Hwan, a job seeker who gradually learns his secret as he is resurrected three days later.

“Reawakened Man” will be produced by Yong Film, the production company behind “Call” and “Believer,” as the first installment in a planned superhero series. The series is titled “New Human War” (literal title), and it tells the stories of people who were born with special abilities as a result of secret research. The heroes fight against “new human” species that pose a threat to humanity.
Director Baek of “Beauty Inside” will direct “Reawakened Man,” and he is expected to have a unique style of action blockbuster. Filming will begin in 2023, and the casting for the remaining roles has yet to be determined.
