Production crew of 'True Swordsmanship' requests viewers to watch EXO D.O.'s transformation

On April 4, 2022, according to various K-media outlets, the production team of the upcoming KBS K-drama series True Swordsmanship stated that the series will showcase refreshing and exhilarating scenes which will give viewers something new to watch other than the ordinary.

The production crew stated:

"True Swordsmanship' is a drama that will bring you joy and thrill with a crazy, rebellious prosecutor who repays the wicked in the most refreshing way ever felt before. Please look forward to 'True Swordsmanship', as well as D.O.'s acting transformation."

The upcoming series, True Swordsmanship, narrates the story of a prosecutor named Jin Jung whose passion is to bring about justice and discipline. He aims to break the stereotypes created by wealth and power, and also punish greedy people associated with dishonest and corrupt groups.

Jin Jung uses new methods instead of the conventional ways to punish the corrupt and has a firm principle of having “an eye for an eye” to penalize the wicked and stand by the innocent.

D.O. will play the role of Jin Jung, a third division prosecutor in the Central District Prosecutor’s Office. With his devilishly charming visuals and acts, he wants to be remembered in the history of prosecutors for being unprecedented and spontaneous.

The K-drama series will be co-produced by Neo Entertainment, which has previously worked on projects like The Uncanny Encounter, Abyss, and Sketch. Blaad Studios, which produced Ashfall and Along with the Gods will also work on the series. True Swordsmanship is expected to start filming in the first half of 2022.
