Director Yeon Sang Ho has explained the cliffhanger ending of his latest original series Hellbound streaming on Netflix.

According to the director, the underlying theme behind the series is ‘the intolerance of uncertainty that places people at their own hell.’ Yeon said, “The most important message that I wanted to deliver through this work is asking questions on humanity and what it means to be a human.” He further added, “The series begins as people encounter an unexplainable supernatural phenomenon. I wanted to wrap up the series by showing one of the most incomprehensible and unreasonable acts of will that a person can exhibit – self-sacrifice.”

He also answered why he only saved the newborn child of Bae Young Jae (Park Jung-min) and Song So Hyun (Won Jin Ah). “I have a child of my own, and I often become emotional when I watch kids on TV. You know how children can be made happy even with the smallest gifts. If a society fails to appreciate those children in our lives, then the society is ill and not sustainable for human welfare. By showing the newborn child at the end, I wanted to offer a surprising glimpse of hope that may lead them to a better world.”

Meanwhile, Hellbound is maintaining its No. 1 standing on FlixPatrol’s global top 10 list for nine consecutive days.
