‘Train to Busan’ Director Yeon Sang-Ho Launches New Netflix Series ‘Hellbound’
Yeon will collaborate on the script with illustrator Choi Gyu-seok, whose previous work includes webtoon Songgot, which was adapted as a television drama in 2015.
The series will be produced by Korea’s Lezhin Studio, which specialises in transforming webtoons (digital comics) into films, dramas, video games and other original content.
Hellbound will tell a story of surviving under social chaos, when a group of supernatural beings appear and condemn people to hell. A new religious group interprets them as the will of the divine.
