The worldwide audience is ready for another Korean bombshell. We already had the TV show My Name achieving moderate success, but Hellbound is having a quick start, claiming 24 number one spots the day after it was released. Then it got 29 number ones and yesterday it was at 35, leading the chart ahead of Arcane and Netflix-produced English-speaking remake of popular Japanese anime Cowboy Bebop.
Hellbound is an adaptation of a webtoon made by Yeon Sang-ho, director and writer of the popular zombie movie Train to Busan. It premiered in September at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival and later at Busan International Film Festival and BFI London Film Festival, before making its way to Netflix. It currently has a perfect 100% score at Rotten Tomatoes. Could this be the next South Korean TV show everyone will be talking about?
