A new series from the creator of Train to Busan is coming to Netflix on 19 November. Here is the trailer for Hellbound:

The six-episode South Korean horror series will focus on theories and beliefs surrounding Heaven and Hell, with supernatural creatures dragging humans down to the abyss.

Hellbound is a live-action adaptation that will look at the narratives surrounding good and evil as well as sin and virtue as well as delving into how they morph and change a society.

The show has been directed by Yeon Sang-ho who you may have heard of for his creation of the highly acclaimed Train to Busan.

Hellbound is based on the webtoon (type of digital comic originating in South Korea) called The Hellbound which has been dubbed 'the most shocking piece of work in the history of webtoons.'

Speaking about the show, Yeon Sang-ho said: "From the time when I was working on the webtoon, bringing the story onto the screen was always at the back of my mind."

The cast for Hellbound include Yoo Ah-in (Chicago Typewriter, Six Flying Dragons), Park Jeong-min (Bleak Night, Deliver Us from Evil), Kim Hyun-joo (I Have a Lover, Undercover) as well as Won Jin-ah (Just Between Lovers, Long Live the King) and Yang Ik-june (Breathless, A Time to Love).

After Netflix shared the trailer with the world, it got many people talking, with one writting: "I've got a lot of Korean series' and films on my watch list, some quality stuff coming from there."

Another added: "With #Hellbound and #SeoulVibe all coming on Netflix, I can already feel Yoo Ah In World Domination. I wanna keep oppa to myself but his talent is too precious to hide from the world. I am so excited!"

A third commented: "Wow! Here's another South Korean series on Netflix. Don't be put off by the unoriginal title! It looks amazing! #Hellbound From the director of Train To Busan."

Others are asking whether this could be the new Korean guilty pleasure off the back of Squid Game's success.

Someone wrote: "Is this the #SquidGame effect? I'm seeing the main @Netflix social media accounts marketing #Hellbound, a Korean series coming in November. Up until now, I don't think I've seen any #kdramas really heavily marketed other than on their Korean/Asian related platforms."
