Blood Free Is the Meaty Drama You Should Be Watching

Disney+'s Blood Free has a meaty mystery this week.

Disney+ recently just brought over a ton of Hulu content to their app and one new release is worth putting on your watchlist if you're a fan of thrillers or Korean Dramas. Blood Free stars Ju Ji-hoon, Han Hyo-joo, Lee Hee-joon, Lee Moo-saeng and Park Ji-yeon in a twisty mystery about synthetic meat. BF is a company dedicated to delivering the public "cruelty-free" meat. They grow the product in labs without killing animals and tout their progress in corporate releases. Han Hyo-joo is their haughty CEO who leads BF into the future.

However, one day a concurrence of events push her into a chance encounter with Ju Ji-hoon' Chae-woon Woo. The former bodyguard becomes wrapped up in a matter of blackmail, corporate espionage and possible sabotage going on in BF. With Chae-woon Woo's help, Ja-yu is looking to restore her company's good fortunes. But, with so many forces praying on her downfall, she doesn't know who to trust. The first two episodes of Blood Free are out right now and the entire tone of the series breeds paranoia. Is the bodyguard a threat as well? Could someone out there be pulling the strings? It's too early to tell at the moment. But, that's half of the fun. Check out the trailer for Blood Free right here.
