Netflix to Scare Viewers Senseless with Creepy New K-drama Hellbound Starring Yoo Ah In, Kim Hyun Joo, Park Jung Min, Won Jin Ah, and Yang Ik Joon

Netflix has released the poster and a few promo stills for its upcoming K-drama Hellbound, adapted from the webtoon To Hell. The show has been selected to show at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival which does add to the prestige element, not to mention it was already highly anticipated due to the star-studded casting of Yoo Ah In, Park Jung Min, Kim Hyun Joo, Won Jin Ah, and Yang Ik Joon. That’s two sets of leads and one exceptional character actor. The story is about one day harbingers of death, the grim reapers, start showing up and people being taken to Hell. That’s the general synopsis and I’m too scaredy cat to read the webtoon and see what it’s about. Sweet Home was probably the extent of my ability to read creepy webtoons/mahwas/mangas.
