Imagine yourself living on Earth where hell actually exists and the executioners and unearthly beings are living among us, haunting humans that are committing sins.

This is exactly what award-winning director Yeon Sang-ho (“Train to Busan,” ‘Peninsula,” and “The Cursed: Dead Man’s Prey”) wants us to feel and see with his newest series under Netflix—”Hellbound.”

Inspired by a webtoon story of the same title, this suspense and dark series shows the uncertainties and injustice happening in our society. 

“There are various characters played by this wonderful cast. I think all of them actually are people who we see in society, who exist in society. And they have different convictions and they have different emotions,” the director says. “I think the viewers can resonate with their convictions and their feelings depending on which conviction they choose to believe.” 

Starring Yoo Ah-in, Kim Hyun-joo, Park Jeong-min, Won Jin-a, Yang Ik-june, Kim Do-yoon, Kim Shin-rock, Ryu Kyung-soo, Lee Re, and a lot more, “Hellbound” showcases some of Korea’s finest actors.

“The script was just so immersive. People who repeat irreversible mistakes, people who stick to their convictions, people who sacrifice themselves… The circumstances, stories and attitude of each of these people stand in stark contrast with one another, which can convey a number of different messages depending on the perspective,” says Won Jin-a (“Just Between Lovers”)

Meanwhile, Yoo Ah-in (“Secret Affair,” “#Alive”) says “Hellbound simply depicted the hell we now live in.”

“I think it’s fun to watch the clash of these kinds of convictions, and it gives us an opportunity to think about our society, think about our convictions,” director Yeon Sang-ho says. “I hope people can really talk about these questions after they watch ‘Hellbound.'”

“Hellbound” is a six-episode series that will premiere on Netflix this Nov. 19, 2021.
