Have you ever wished you could erase someone from your life? This power is entirely possible in the ominous world of DELETE, thanks to a mysterious device that has the ability to erase a person from existence. Those who come into contact with this dangerous power quickly discover that it brings out their worst instincts.
On June 28, the new Thai series DELETE makes its global Netflix debut. This is Parkpoom Wongpoom’s first foray into the world of television. He’s also a co-writer on this project and says this about it: “DELETE’s thrilling and extraordinary plot revolves around the darker sides of human nature, especially when complicated relationships are involved.
The story explores an intriguing question: if we could actually make anyone disappear, would we? Throughout the production of DELETE, I had the opportunity to experiment with a variety of new approaches and experiences, which will blur the lines between genres such as action and drama, and even include some special-effect spectacles.”
The emotional journey of the show is brought to life by an all-star cast. Ice-Natara Nopparatayapon plays the heir to a wealthy family, Nat Kitcharit portrays a famous writer, and Fah-Sarika Sartsilpsupa plays a woman trapped in a controlling marriage.
“This series encompasses a variety of captivating elements,” says Ice-Natara Nopparatayapon. It makes a big impact by combining intense drama and genuine action sequences.” Meanwhile, Nat Kitcharit is confident that the tight collaboration between the show’s cast and creators will leave a lasting impression on viewers. “Immersion in this character has pushed me to grow and refine my craft as an actor,” he adds.
Working with the DELETE cast was described as “training or collaborating within a group of amazingly talented and hardworking people” by Fah-Sarika Sartsilpsupa. Jaonaay-Jinjett Wattanasin, Charlette Wasita Hermenau, and Hunger co-stars Aokbab-Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying and Peter-Nopachai Jayanama round out this talented cast.
Erykah Badu’s musical performances in the film showcase her soulful sound and eclectic style.
Badu joins the previously announced cast of Samuel L. Jackson, John David Washington, Ray Fisher, Danielle Deadwyler, Michael Potts, and Corey Hawkins.

The production is the highest-grossing Broadway revival of a play and the highest-grossing Wilson production ever, and it recently received two Tony nominations (for Best Revival of A Play and Best Performance By An Actor In A Featured Role In A Play for Samuel L. Jackson).
When good and evil clash, everyone enjoys an epic showdown.
The trailer for the upcoming Netflix action series Bloodhounds gives a glimpse into the thrilling fight that takes place when two rookie boxers find themselves throwing punches outside the ring in a fight for justice.
Up-and-coming boxer Gun-woo (Woo Do-hwan) and fellow competitor Woo-jin (Lee Sang-yi) form a friendship after meeting in the finals of a boxing championship.
When scheming loan sharks from Smile Capital trick Gun-woo’s mother into debt and trash her café, Woo-jin feels compelled to help her avenge her.
Gun-woo and Woo-jin use their boxing skills to take down Smile Capital’s cruel head honcho, Kim Myeong-gil (Park Sung-woong), and his ruthless runners with the help of President Choi (Huh Joon-ho), a retired legend in the moneylending industry.
While the pair of “brothers”‘ are only novice boxers, the grit, and determination these underdogs honed inside the ring could be the game-changer in their bloody battle. They bite down and never let go, just like bloodhounds.
Bloodhounds, which premieres on June 9, promises to deliver a series of thrilling fight scenes that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. But it is a story about two loyal friends—and the lengths they will go to protect those they love—rather than a nail-biting battle between good and evil.
