Netflix’s Korean drama, ‘Black Knight,’ has been accused of being a copy of the video game, ‘Death Stranding.’ However, Netflix quickly denied these allegations, clarifying that the show is based on a webtoon.
The show stars actor Kim Woo Bin and follows a group of delivery men who risk everything to deliver oxygen in a post-apocalyptic world where breathable air is scarce. The main character discovers a conspiracy that could change everything for them.
The video game ‘Death Stranding’ follows a similar premise as the main character makes deliveries to save America, which is facing the aftermath of an apocalypse. However, the webtoon for ‘Black Knight’ was released three years prior to the game, so the plagiarism allegations are expected to dissipate.
