Netflix's K-drama “Chicken Nugget” cast is confirmed, but is met with controversy!

Netflix‘s controversial new K-drama Chicken Nugget will soon premiere, and its all-star cast will not leave fans disappointed! We break down all the cast members you need to know and why netizens are concerned! Read on to find out more!


It had been speculated previously, that the 10-part mystery/comedy series, is about a father who tries to bring his daughter back to life after she transforms into a piece of "fried chicken", hence the title "Chicken Nugget".

Chicken Nugget is based on Park Ji Dok‘s webtoon Dak Gang Geong (Sweet & Sour Chicken), released in 2019. It stars Kim Yoo Jung (also known as Kim You Jung, who previously starred in My Demon, The 8th Night, and 20th Century Girl) as Choi Min Ah, Ryu Seung Ryong (Moving, Kingdom, and Miracle in Cell No. 7) as Choi Sun Man, and Ahn Jae Hong (Kingdom, Be Melodramatic, and Fight For My Way) as Ko Baek Joong. Which is an all-star lineup for K-drama lovers globally!

I personally cannot wait for this series to start on March 15th, 2024! I think the mystery and creativity behind the story is amazing!

However, the most shocking cameo comes from the fact that netizens believed this actor to have a starring role. The male leads explained that while Kim Yoo Jung plays the character for which the story revolves, she doesn’t appear in every episode since she’s turned into a chicken nugget.

"Even actress Kim Yoo Jung, who starred as my daughter, wasn’t featured in that many episodes. Even so, her presence in the drama is quite dominating all throughout. We were practically dancing when she first accepted the offer." — Ryu Seung Ryong

So what are your thoughts about Kim Yoo Jung's appearance in the drama? Let us know in the comments below if you will be tuning in to watch this new series!
