The Netflix show which overtook Squid Game to become the most watched series on the streaming service has earned itself a rare and flawless 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes. You can see a trailer for it here:
New south Korean series Hellbound can now add another impressive accolade to its list after getting itself a perfect score of 100 percent based on critics' reviews.
Directed by Train to Busan's Yeon Sang-ho, the show follows a group of demons who hunt down sinners and send them to hell.
The series, which landed on Netflix on 19 November, sees sinners informed of the date and time of their death before being hunted down by giant monsters who then incinerate their victims and send them to hell, prompting an outbreak of public hysteria and religious fanaticism.
And, as you may have guessed from my little description above, it’s proved to be a huge hit with horror fans.
So much so that FlixPatrol reported Hellbound was the most streamed Netflix show globally on 20 November and surpassed Squid Game in more than 80 countries within just 24 hours of its release.
Sadly for those of you who loved the show, its creator has said there’s no plans for a second helping any time soon.
Yeon told Variety: “Because Hellbound is based on the original webtoons, my partner Choi Kyu-Seok and I have decided that the story afterwards will be told first through the webtoon and as for whether we would want to turn that into another live-action series, that’s something that we will need further discussion on.”
He went on to say he hadn’t yet had a chance to talk to Netflix about a potential second series.
But it’s not all bad news for K-drama fans, because earlier this month, Squid Game's director Hwang Dong-hyuk confirmed that a second series is definitely happening.
Dong-hyuk said: "So, there's been so much pressure, so much demand, and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice.
"But, I will say there will indeed be a second season. It's in my head right now. I'm in the planning process currently. But I do think it's too early to say when and how that's going to happen."
Both Hellbound and Squid Game are available to stream on Netflix right now.
