Based on the webtoon of the same title by Lee Yun-kyun, it depicts a dystopian future where extensive air pollution has become a huge problem after a comet destroyed most of the world and forced the people who are still alive to depend on elite delivery drivers for survival.

"In 2071, extreme air pollution has turned the majority of the Korean peninsula into a wasteland after a comet wiped out all but 1% of its original population, who live in segregated districts based on their social status. They are also required to wear respirators and rely on the "Knights," specialized delivery drivers, to provide them with the supplies (especially fresh oxygen) they need to stay alive. One day, a legendary knight called '5-8' meets a boy named Sa-Wol, who wishes to become a Knight just like him, and decides to train him so that he can accomplish his dream in the dark and dangerous world that they live in."

The Delivery men 

My husband and I binged Black Knight. Full of action...every episode has a massive martial arts fight scene. The best part, you get the story from start to finish. No waiting for another season. The show is dubbed in English. It is a drama and gets a little dark and violent at times. I've noticed K-dramas don't shy away from killing characters the heroes desperately try to save...their villains are evil through and through, with no redemption arcs! But they also mix in over-the-top silly humor too. Your emotions will be all over the place...which makes for an entertaining ride.

And if you need another reason to watch... look at The Black Knight, deliveryman 5-9. The names come from the district they serve and their rank.
