Connect will tell a mysterious story of a man who experiences a strange connection with a person who has received his trafficked organ through a transplant. Currently, the series is in talks with OTT platforms for a direct OTT release. Since Jung Hae In is already in talks to join the drama, all eyes are on their possible teamwork between the two talented actors.
