Multitude of K-stars Attend Press Conference Promoting Sci-fi Drama Anthology SF8 Airing on MBC in August 2020

The series is being supported by the Director’s Guild of Korea so many of the PDs are critically acclaimed movie directors. The large cast starring in the series, split into various pairings, include Moon So Ri, Lee Yeon Hee, Choi Siwon, UEE, Lee Shi Young, Lee Deok Hwi, Kim Bora, David Lee, Lee Yoo Young, Hani, Shin So Yul, and Ha Joon. The series is slated to air two episodes a week in August on MBC for four weeks straight.
