Yeon Sang-ho (Train To Busan and upcoming Peninsula) is to direct a new Netflix original series based on Korean webtoon ‘Hell’. ‘HellBound’ tells a story of surviving under social chaos, when a group of supernatural beings appear and condemn people to hell. A new religious group interprets them as the will of the divine.
Hellbound will be produced by Lezhin Studio, the production arm of the immensely successful publisher Lezhin Comics. Yeon has previously worked with Lezhin as the screenwriter of their hit TV series The Cursed earlier this year.
