Joo Ji Hoon Considering Secret Forest Screenwriter’s Next Sci-fi Drama Dominant Species

I’m glad Joo Ji Hoon woke up at the end of Jirisan because the whole conceit was weird but I’m glad he’s not shunning the fantasy or sci-fi genres even if some don’t work out. He’s in talks for a new streaming only drama called Dominant Species written by the screenwriter of Secret Forest (Stranger), she wrote both seasons and also Life and Grid. The drama is set in the future where genes and infectious diseases are top issues in the world and people consume pills as commonly as food. The drama doesn’t have a specific broadcast platform yet but is in talks with an international streamer so I’m guessing Netflix or Disney+ or Apple TV. Arrival will be in 2023 and it’s just starting the pre-production planning.

  2. Forest of Secrets and Life were so good but after the hot mess disaster that was Grid, I’m doubting this writer’s ability to pull off sci-fi. She seems best at more realistic shows.

    Grid had such a great cast and she somehow managed to squander every single one of them.

  3. I don’t trust the writer for SF… Because there was only one episode by week I stopped it to binge it but the recap made me drop it. Korean should give up SF : Grid, Sisyphus, etc were bad…

    • I’d rather her write a 2nd season of Grid and FINISH the story before she tries her hands on another sci-fi. Grid was actually interesting to watch but whatever worldview story she was thinking of was apparently too big for just 10 episodes so she had to cut it off like that and leave the viewers confused. I could follow the story just fine from Ep1-9 but Ep10 was suddenly huh???

      Tho knowing myself I’m still gonna be checking this one out just because I’ve watched all of the screenwriter’s works 🤦🏻‍♀️

  4. Am I missing something or what? I mean what with the craze about Sci-fi recently? like it’s not even that popular! all recent projects are about sci-fi!

  5. I’ll be honest and admit I wasn’t that impressed with Stranger 1 or 2 even though everyone seems to love them. Grid was a mess. I’m not expecting much from this and don’t particularly enjoy Joo Ji-hoon as an actor.
