‘Hellbound’ welcomes you to the new world

Netflix’s new series depicts director Yeon Sang-ho’s unique worldview

A serial murder case or divine judgment? The answer relies when the supernatural thriller series “Hellbound” finally streams on Netflix come Nov. 19, 2021. 

Netflix dropped its main trailer for the new South Korean series “Hellbound” and by the looks of it, it will be another legendary series in the making! The series explores a world swept by a supernatural phenomenon where executors from hell suddenly start to condemn people to hell. With this, a new religious group called the New Truth emerges amid this chaos, while others try to uncover the truth behind the series of events.

“Hellbound” is based on a webtoon of the same title but the series was co-written and directed by Yeon Sang-ho who’s also responsible for “The King of Pigs,” “The Fake,” “Train to Busan,” “Peninsula,” and “The Cursed: Dead Man’s Prey,” which all tackled the uncertainties and injustice in current society. 

Director Yeon’s compelling story “Hellbound,” the epitome of his worldview, swept the cast off their feet too. “Hellbound simply depicted the hell we now live in,” Yoo Ah-in says. “You can enjoy the suspense and then it suddenly strikes with a deep message,” tells Park Jeong-min.

For Won Jin-a: “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.”
