Netflix has announced the star-studded cast lineup for upcoming film My Name Is Loh Kiwan, with Song Joong-ki and Choi Sung-eun playing the leading characters. The film follows the story of Loh Kiwan, a North Korean defector who slipped away to Belgium in the pursuit for freedom, who falls in love with a woman named Mari. 

Loh Kiwan will be played by Song Joong-ki, who previously starred in the Netflix film Space Sweepers, where he plays a talented pilot who risks his life to scavenge space debris. He has also left his mark in several hit series including Vincenzo, in which he plays a dashing mafia consigliere, and his recent double role in Reborn Rich
