Smaller cable network TV Chosun has picked up the K-drama remake of US show Leverage, calling it Leverage: Fraud Control Operation and made it all sleek and shiny. The first teaser is out and shows the five leads walking purposefully through a field with the wind artfully blowing and everyone doing their best catwalk strut with a smirk. Lee Dong Gun is the former insurance investigator gathering together a group of swindlers to rob the white collar criminals of their ill gotten gains. It’s basically modern Robin Hood with technology and plenty of sleight of hand. I’m thrilled to see Jeon Hye Bin as the badass female lead and also Kim Sae Ron joins as the youngest member of the squad and looking all grown up now. The drama drops in mid-October and hopefully has cool antics to back up the pretty visuals.
