Yeon Sang-ho, the director of the film Train to Busan, will showcase a new drama on Netflix. The drama Hellbound, based on the webtoon of the same title, will be released exclusively on Netflix on November 19th.
After the original webtoon was published as a book, the director gave his opinions on the narrative.
“In today’s world, people are really sensible. I wanted to write a narrative that plunges back into the world of savagery due to an unexpected occurrence.”
The plot of Hellbound begins with a supernatural event in which individuals are doomed to hell by unknown creatures who emerge without warning. A confrontation between the religious group New Reality Society, which is increasing the number of members by preaching God’s judgment, and those who dig up the truth, takes place.

The leader of the religious organization New Reality Society, Jeong Jin-soo, argues that God sent these mysterious transcendent entities to punish sinners.
Hellbound’s final trailer on Netflix gives viewers a look inside the misery of people involved in supernatural events.
In a previous interview, the filmmaker remarked:
“It was critical for me to paint a clear image. If a new phenomenon leads people to be bewildered, shouldn’t there be a clear action that looks to be a divine judgment?”
Choi Kyu-sok, who was in charge of drawing the original webtoon, wrote the drama’s script. The filmmaker stated that he tried to make the most of the writer’s approach, which he described as “very cinematic.”
On November 19, 2021, the first six episodes of Hellbound will be available for viewing in 190 countries on Netflix.
