The Netflix film Hellbound climbed to the top of the global rankings just two days after its premiere. Unlike most K-dramas’ cases, Hellbound’s director is also an original animation and webtoon writer. As a result, you can observe that many sequences in the drama attempted to replicate the scenes in the webtoon.
The haircut of the lead actor, Yoo Ah-In, and the moment in which he speaks into a microphone are remarkably identical.
The other cast actors also have a similar appearance to the characters in the webtoon.
The Arrowhead Cult leader, who was costumed as an American Indian in the webtoon, was altered to a skull, although it has a very similar feel.
The VIPs donating big quantities of money and attending the New Truth Society’s ceremony are also wearing white masks, as depicted in the webtoon.
The scene in the hospital room where broadcast station PD Bae Young-Jae, who opposes the New Truth Society, nurses his wife is very similar.
How were the supernatural happenings in the original webtoon portrayed in the drama?
The ghosts who emerge to proclaim the path to hell are depicted in a more horrific manner than in the original.
The otherworldly monsters that arrive at the appointed time and turn victims to ashes are remarkably similar to the original.
If you’re interested, the English version of the webtoon Hellbound can be found on Naver Webtoon.
