Have you watched Squid Game yet and loved the plot? Then you’d definitely love this new Korean Horror Drama that Netflix will be releasing this November.
Hellbound is a fantasy-thriller series starring Yoo Ah-in which is based on a Korean webtoon. It is set in a dystopian, parallel reality version of Earth where supernatural beings arise out of nowhere and begin bringing ordinary people to hell.
Hellbound’s Plot and Other Details
Hellbound is a unique original series that tries to merge religion and supernatural terror. It is based on the webtoon Hell, written by Yeon Sang-ho (Director of Train to Busan) and illustrated by Choi Gyu-seok.
In addition, as a police procedural drama, the series takes an innovative approach to storytelling. The storyline synopsis below, which was taken from a Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) press release, gives some light on Hellbound’s ambitious story.
“Hellbound, is a series about a nation coping with a new phenomenon of ‘sinners’ literally condemned, and a religious sect on the rise, led by Jung Jin-soo (Yoo Ah-in). Investigating the phenomenon of ‘proclamations’ and ritualistic murders is police detective Jin Kyung-hoon (Yang Ik-june). Examining the mysterious sect are broadcast journalist Bae Young-jae (Park Jung-min) and lawyer of the accused sinners Min Hey-jin (Kim Hyun-joo). Together, these three investigators search for answers in this wildly original commentary on the growing anxieties of a nation.”
Hellbound will be available on Netflix on Friday, November 19th, 2021, thanks to the Netflix TUDUM event. It is the first Korean drama series to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Chicago Typewriter, a beloved Korean drama, is leaving Netflix, much to the disappointment of fans. However, Chicago Typewriter actor Yoo Ah In makes his first appearance on television in four years. Netflix subscribers will remember Yoo Ah In as Oh Joon Woo from the Netflix zombie movie Alive.
