Song Kang, Lee Shi-young, Lee Jin-wook
PD Lee Eung-bok, who directed hits like Mr. Sunshine, Descended From the Sun, and The Lonely Shining Goblin, will be returning with a new project for Netflix called Sweet Home. Based on a Naver webtoon by the same name, this drama will be about the psychological changes that occur when isolation turns people into monsters, and the desperate struggle they face against their inner demons.
Song Kang (Love Alarm) plays a loner high school kid who has just lost his family. He moves to a new, different apartment and begins to experience a number of shocking and bizarre events that prompt him to leave behind his hermit-like existence and jump back into the world in order to save people. Lee Shi-young (What’s Wrong Mr. Poong-sang) and Lee Jin-wook (Voice 3) have signed on to co-star as well. Lee Jin-wook plays a mysterious character who’s strong and tough; more details have yet to be released. Lee Shi-young will be taking on a character that was not in the original webtoon, but it promises to have a big role in the drama.
The rest of the cast seems to have been filled out and there’s a good combination of veterans and rising stars. Some of the actors joining the drama are Go Min-shi (Love Alarm), Kim Gab-soo (Chief of Staff 2), and Kim Sang-ho (Nokdu Flower).
Sweet Home will be released as a Netflix original series sometime in 2020.
