I’ve gotten overly used to a certain lightness in the Korean dramas I watch on Netflix. Shows like Crash Landing on You, Start-Up, and even titles like Vincenzo to a certain degree. As the global popularity of the genre has expanded, though, so, too, has the availability of all kinds of these series to binge. The ratings dominance of Squid Game is a perfect example of this, something we’ll talk more about below. And on Friday, Netflix is debuting an all-new K-drama series that seems completely devoid of sweetness and light. You can tell that right away from the title: Hellbound.
This 6-episode series continues to flesh out an already impressive and growing slate of Korean content available on the streamer. Adding a new dark and horrifying title to the content already available in this genre that touches everything from action series to movies, historical fantasies, rom-coms, and more much.
