Sweet Home has unveiled still photos that are filled with tension and anxiety.
The new Netflix original series Sweet Home doubled the expectations with photos that heralds extreme suspense. Based on a webtoon of the same name, Sweet Home is a drama about a bizarre and shocking story that a loner high school student Hyun Soo experiences in an apartment where he moved after losing his family. As humans turn into savage monsters and wreak terror, he and his apartment neighbors fight to survive — and to hold on to their humanity.
First, the photo of Hyun Soo (Song Kang) grabs the attention. The reclusive loner Hyun Soo, whose computer on the side of the small room was his entire world, checks the intercom, and he freezes. His shocked expression as he confronts the monster with just a door in-between, raises questions about why he steps out into the world.
Pyeon Sang Wook (Lee Jin Wook), who makes residents uncomfortable with his harsh looks and speech, and Seo Yi Kyung (Lee Si Young), a former firefighter from a special forces unit, show off their overwhelming presence and unapproachable charisma. Lee Eun Hyuk (Lee Do Hyun), the brain and leader of Green Home, will lead the residents with cool charisma.
Kim Nam Hee plays Korean language teacher Jung Jae Hyun, who has excellent kendo skills, fights off the monsters with a sword. Go Min Si plays Lee Eun Hyuk’s Lee Eun Yoo, who is at her rebellious stage, while Park Kyu Young plays Yoon Ji Soo, who plays bass guitar, and Go Youn Jung becomes Gil Sub’s caretaker Park Yoo Ri.
Kim Kap Soo plays Gil Sub, a terminally ill patient, and Kim Sang Ho takes on the role of Doo Sik, an engineer who specializes in weapons production. These two veteran actors will add weight to the story.
Mr. Sunshine and Goblin director Lee Eung Bok said, “There are a lot of tough scenes, but the actors helped each other like a family,” adding to expectations for the actors’ all-time transformation and synergy that will present thrilling stories amid unprecedented disaster.
Sweet Home will be released on Netflix on Dec 18.
