SEOUL, Jan. 28 (Yonhap) -- Popular Naver Webtoon “Money Game” will be produced as a drama.

Naver Webtoon announced it will release a newly adapted eight-part series on an OTT service by combining writer Bae Jin-soo's webtoon "Money Game" and "PyGame,” on Friday.

The OTT platform for which the drama will be serviced has not yet been confirmed.

The drama tells the story of eight participants repeatedly cooperating and antagonizing in an extreme setting where the game ends when a death occurs and social infrastructure is cut off.

The show will star IU (birth name: Lee Ji-eun), Ryu Jun-yeol, Park Jung-min, Park Hae-jun, and Bae Seung-woo, and the filming is scheduled to begin in the first half of this year.

Han Jae-rim, the director of this year’s anticipated movie “Emergency Declaration,” is in charge of scripting and directing the upcoming webtoon series. This is Han’s first time directing a drama.

Studio N, which took charge in Naver Webtoon’s video production including “Sweet Home,” “Our Beloved Summer," “Yumi’s Cells," and MAGNUM9, which made the movie “The King” and “Emergency Declaration” will produce the upcoming series. Lotte Cultureworks will also participate as co-producer.
