Previously, director Yeon Sang Ho made headlines when he partnered with Netflix to produce the new original series Hellbound. And today, Netflix announced the jaw-dropping cast, including Yoo Ah In, Park Jung Min, Kim Hyun Joo, Won Jin Ah, Yank Ik Jun, Ki Do Yoon, Kim Shin Rok, Ryu Kyung Soo, and Lee Re.
Korea’s leading actors and actresses will appear in the Netflix original series Hellbound. Hellbound is a story about a supernatural phenomenon where supernatural beings from hell appear out of nowhere to condemn people to hell.
Yoo Ah In, who has left a deep impression in every work such as #ALIVE, Burning, The Throne, and Veteran, will play the role of Chairman Chung Jin-soo, the head of the “New Truth Society” and show both strong charisma and mysterious side. “New Truth Society” is a new religious group that interprets the supernatural phenomenon as the will of the divine.
Park Jung Min, who solidified his position as star actor by showing off a wide range of acting through Time to Hunt, Start-Up, and Svaha: The Sixth Finger, will play Bae Young Jae, a producer in a broadcasting station who delves into the truth behind “New Truth Society.“
Kim Hyun Joo, who recently showed a perfect acting transformation in OCN’s Watcher, plays the role of lawyer Min Hye Jin, who stands up against “New Truth Society“ and “Arrowhead,” the group that blindly follows them.
Won Jin Ah, who showed passionate performances in drama Life and movies Money and Long Live the King, will add interest to the play as Bae Young Jae’s wife Song So Hyun, who collapses due to unbearable pain.
Yank Ik Jun, who is both an aspiring director and veteran actor, is expected to draw a realistic portrayal of Jin Kyung Hoon, a detective in charge of investigating the appearances of supernatural beings from hell.
Meanwhile, Kim Do Yoon, who has already worked with director Yeon Sang Ho in The Cursed and Peninsula, will play one of the members of “Arrowhead” and show “lunatic” performance.
Kim Shin Rok, who made a strong impression with his shocking shamanistic performance in The Cursed, will play the role of Park Jung Ja, a mother who was suddenly sentenced to hell in front of her young children. She will show in detail what the ordinary person goes through in the changed world.
Ryu Kyung Soo, who has shown his irreplaceable presence in Itaewon Class, plays the priest Yoo Ji, who only thinks and acts for the revival of the “New Truth Society.“
Lee Re, who recently became a hot topic with her awesome action scene in Peninsula, will appear as Jin Hee Sung, the daughter of detective Jin Kyung Hoon and work with Yang Ik Jun.
Hellbound was initially published as a webtoon titled Hell, which garnered much attention even from the start as the collaborative work of director Yeon Sang Ho and illustrator Choi Gyu Seok, the author of Awl. The work became a hot topic, drawing keen attention by penetrating the uncertainty and absurdity of modern society.
Hellbound will be released only on Netflix in more than 190 countries around the world.
