16 Apr – Filming is currently underway for the Netflix adaptation of the Korean popular webtoon, "Hell".
The upcoming show, which has been renamed, "Hellbound" is being directed by Yeon Sang-ho, most notable for his work in the hit Korean horror film, "Train to Busan", and will star Yoo Ah-in, Park Jeong-min, Kim Hyun-ju, Won Jin-ah and Yang Ik-jun.
The fantasy thriller, helmed by Yeon himself and cartoonist Choi Gyu-seok, depicts supernatural phenomena experienced by people who are condemned to hell after their unexpected encounters with angels of death.
It was originally published by Naver, and is set to be made available to English-language readers through Dark Horse.
The original graphic novel had also been previously praised by Bong Joon-ho, director of the Oscar-winning film, "Parasite", saying, "Choi Gyu-seok's sharp and keen drawing style goes well beyond depicting the modern Korean's physique, expression, and wrinkles. It reaches a genius-level where we can feel the character's anxiety and fear. A truly overwhelming world of fear that cannot be explained with words like 'God's prank' or 'grand nonsense'."
"We are already burning in the centre of the hell that Yeon Sang-ho and Choi Gyu-seok are portraying," he added.
The upcoming show is set to be released sometime this year.
