Actors Gong Yoo and Bae Doo Na will work together in Netflix original series The Silent Sea.
According to a source, Gong Yoo, Bae Doo Na, Lee Joon Hyuk, Kim Sun Young, and Heo Jung Do have recently confirmed their appearances in The Silent Sea. Produced as Netflix original series, The Silent Sea is an SF horror drama about elite soldiers going to a research base abandoned on the moon, set in the future Earth, where water and food shortages have been caused by global desertification.
The series is based on the eponymous 2014 short film directed by Choi Hang Yong, which garnered attention at the Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival the same year.
Jung Woo Sung will participate in the work as a producer, whereas director Choi Hang Yong and writer Park Eun Kyo, famous for Mother, will direct and write the upcoming series. Netflix original series Kingdom’s producer will also participate.
Gong Yoo plays Yoon Jae, a soldier and leader of the team at the space agency, and Bae Doo Na plays Ji An, an exploration agent with secrets. Lee Joon Hyun, Kim Sun Young, and Heo Jung Do will each play Soo Chan, Ga Young, and Ki Soo.
The Silent Sea will be produced in 8 episodes and will start filming in August.
Since it is an SF horror series set on the moon, most of the scenes will be filmed in the film set. It is also seen as an opportunity to introduce Korean VFX technology to the world.
