New teaser released for Netflix sci-fi drama The Silent Sea
Netflix drama The Silent Sea (previously known as Sea of Tranquility), featuring Gong Yoo (Squid Game) and Bae Doo-na (Kingdom 2, Forest of Secrets 2), has released a poster, new stills, and a promo teaser. The drama is set in the dystopian future year of 2075 when earth has exhausted its natural resource supply, and an elite team is dispatched to the moon. The caption on the poster reads: “Go to the abandoned lunar base.”
Bae Doo-na plays astrobiologist Song Ji-ahn, and Gong Yoo plays Han Yoon-jae, the leader of the elite exploratory team. Lee Joon (My Father is Strange) plays the head engineer, and Kim Sun-young (Homemade Love Story) plays the team’s medic. Lee Moo-saeng (A Couple’s World) and Lee Sung-wook (365: Repeat the Year) round out the cast as the security lead and spaceship conductor, respectively.
The teaser begins with Bae Doo-na on the ground, while alarms flash red in the background. It looks like circuitry on the spaceship has shorted due to a crash, and they’re all alone on the moon. In a voiceover, it’s announced that they’re heading to the Balhae Research Station. Gong Yoo says that it’s like any other mission, and that they just need to follow orders. The scene then cuts to exploration of the dark, abandoned research station.
In voiceover, Bae Doo-na’s says: “The chance that we’ll all survive this is only 10%.” Gong Yoo asks whether she thinks she’ll find anything inside, and Bae Doo-na replies that she hopes to find the answer. Action shots paired with dramatic music suggest urgency, and Bae Doo-na closes out the teaser asking, “What in the world happened here?”
Sci-fi drama The Silent Sea will be released on Netflix on December 24.
