SEOUL, December 18, 2019 - Netflix Inc., the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, announced that it will team up with director Lee Eung-bok (Mr. Sunshine, Goblin: The Lonely and Great God, Descendants of the Sun) to produce a new original series Sweet Home, which will be available exclusively on Netflix.
Adapted from a popular webtoon of the same name, Sweet Home is a suspenseful series based on the unique premise of a world in which people turn into monsters that reflect their own individual desires. After losing his family, reclusive high school student Cha Hyeon-su moves into a new apartment where he faces these bizarre and shocking circumstances.
Netflix has also confirmed casting for the show. Hyeon-su is played by Song Kang, who gained recognition as a next-generation star for his performance as Sun-oh in the Netflix original series Love Alarm. Lee Jin-uk, whose explosive acting in the drama Voice proved his unique brilliance as a character actor, portrays the mysterious Pyeong Sang-uk. Lee Si-young, who is known for her intense acting in No Mercy, plays the tough-as-nails Seo Yi-gyeong, an original character created for the Netflix adaptation, which is expected to keep fans of the webtoon guessing.
Sweet Home also features a colorful ensemble cast of newcomers and veteran actors, such as Lee Do-hyun (Hotel del Luna), Kim Nam-hee (Mr. Sunshine), Go Min-si (Love Alarm) Park Kyu-young (Romance is a Bonus Book), Go Youn-jung (He Is Psychometric), Kim Kap-soo (Designated Survivor: 60 Days) and Kim Sang-ho (Kingdom).
