Trailer: “Busan” Director’s “Hellbound” Series
“Train to Busan” director Yeon Sang-ho is returning to screens with the new South Korean Netflix series “Hellbound,” an adaptation of “The Hell” digital comic he co-wrote with Choi Kyu-seok.
In the series, supernatural ‘angels’ begin appearing on Earth and convict people to hell. With their appearance, a mysterious religious sect known as the New Truth Church rises to power claiming the angels are the will of the divine.
Investigating the phenomenon are three quite different investigators – police detective Jin Kyung-hoon (Yang Ik-june), broadcast journalist Bae Young-jae (Park Jeong-min) and lawyer Min Hey-jin (Kim Hyun-joo).
“Burning” breakout Yoo Ah-in leads the cast as the New Truth Church’s charismatic leader. The series is slated to screen at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Check out the just released teaser below:
