JUNG Woo-sung to Produce Netflix Space Drama

GONG Yoo, BAE Doo-na and LEE Joon have all signed on to star in The Sea of Silence, a new sci-fi horror thriller series for global VOD service Netflix. The series will be produced by superstar JUNG Woo-sung and helmed by CHOI Hang-yong who is expanding the material from his own short film of the same name.

Set in the future, The Sea of Silence will show the human race grappling with the consequences of desertification, which has left the earth without enough food or water. A team is assembled to retrieve samples from an abandoned moon base, comprising astrobiologist Dr. Song Ji-an (BAE Doo-na), team leader Ha Yoon-jae (GONG Yoo) and talented engineer RYU Taek-seok (LEE Joon).

TRAIN TO BUSAN (2016) star GONG Yoo recently appeared in KIM JI-YOUNG, BORN 1982 (2019) and has two upcoming films, the sci-fi action Seobok and the sci-fi drama Wonderland (literal title) from director KIM Tae-yong. BAE is no stranger to Netflix shows, having appeared in the global hit Sense8 as well as being a key member of the streaming platform’s original Korean hit, Kingdom. Former MBLAQ member LEE Joon has appeared in films such as Rough Play (2013), The Piper (2015) and Luck-key (2016).

The Sea of Silence is being scripted by PARK Eun-gyo, who served as a co-writer on BONG Joon-ho’s acclaimed Mother (2009).
