Star-studded line up for new supernatural Netflix drama, Hell
Yoo Ah-in, Kim Hyun-joo, Won Jin-ah, Park Jung-min
Train to Busan director Yeon Sang-ho has announced the main actors cast in his new drama project with Netflix: Yoo Ah-in (Chicago Typewriter), Park Jung-min (Hunting Time), Kim Hyun-joo (Watcher, Undercover) and Won Jin-ah (Melting Me Softly, Life).
Hell is a supernatural drama series based on a popular Naver webtoon by the same name, drawn by Choi Kyu-seok of Awl. It’s about an unexpected phenomenon that occurs when grim reapers from Hell arrive on earth and appear before people to collect their souls for eternal damnation.
Within the drama, Yoo Ah-in plays the charismatic, mysterious head of a new religious cult that believes the appearance of the grim reapers is a divine sign. Park Jung-min’s character is a broadcasting station PD who pursues the truth about this new religious cult. But as he focuses on finding the truth, Won Jin-ah, who will be playing his wife, has a breakdown due to a yet-unnamed difficult; painful experience.
Kim Hyun-joo will be putting her legal cap back on as she plays a lawyer who stands against the followers and allies of this cult. Yang Ik-joon (Bad Guys: City of Evil) may be an ally of hers, as he’ll be taking on the role of a detective who is investigating the phenomenon of the grim reapers’ appearance.
Information on some of the supporting cast members have been released as well, with two actors having worked with Yeon Sang-ho on his last drama, The Cursed. Kim Shin-rok (The Cursed) has been tapped to take the role of a young mother who is told by the grim reapers that she is bound for hell. Kim Do-yoon (The Cursed) plays a fanatic member of a group that follows the new cult. Ryu Kyung-soo (Itaewon Class) will be playing a priest–who is also enthralled by the cult.
Hell is set to premiere on Netflix, but the release date has not been scheduled as of yet.
