Paramount+ has debuted the official trailer for upcoming original South Korean thriller series A Bloody Lucky Day. All 10 episodes will premiere on Thursday, 1 February on Paramount+ in the U.S, the UK, Canada, Australia, Latin America, Brazil, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
In the series, Oh Taek is a down-on-his-luck taxi driver having an uncharacteristic streak of good fortune when he agrees to drive a mysterious man named Geum Hyuk-soo to a faraway city in exchange for an exorbitant fare. But when the passenger reveals himself to be a serial killer, confessing to grisly crimes in his past and murdering others on the highway, the taxi driver must play mind games to ensure his lucky streak doesn’t come to a deadly end.

A Bloody Lucky Day stars actors Lee Sung-min (Reborn Rich) as Oh Taek, Yoo Yeon-seok (Narco-Saints) as Geum Hyuk-soo and Lee Jung-eun (Parasite) as Hwang Soon-gyu, and is based on the Naver Webtoon A Day of Bad Luck by Aporia. The ten-episode series is directed by Pil Gam-seong (Hostage: Missing Celebrity) and written by Kim Min-sung and Song Han-na.
Following the critical success of 2023’s award-winning title Bargain, the series is the next project developed by Paramount+ and TVING through a partnership between Paramount and the Korean entertainment powerhouse CJ ENM. In Korea, Paramount+ is a branded zone within TVING, a CJ ENM-controlled streaming platform with current operations in Korea. The deal also allows Korean content to flow to Paramount’s overseas streaming operations.
A Bloody Lucky Day is produced by CJ ENM’s production house Studio Dragon, The Great Show and Studio N. The series is licensed by Paramount Global Content Distribution in select international markets.
