As the director has demonstrated, Koreans are skilled in the horror and thriller genres, so this sounds quite fascinating. The Japanese version and this one are so in the same universe.

From the director of Train to Busan? I am sold! Shut up and take my virginity! Every live-action adaptation of a manga that Netflix has produced is excellent. Consequently, I am beyond ecstatic, and I simply cannot wait for this to be streamed online. I will binge it until my eyeballs are dry.
