It has been reported that 'Sweet Home' is captivating international viewers all around the world. Many film critics are praising the action-filled series and complimenting the actors who appear on the show.

I have watched first seven episodes so far and I can recommend it. It has some really nice actors and actresses, very good SFX and a solid, yet crazy, story. It is very bloody and sometimes scary, so it's actually meant fo fans of horror/gore movies. It's not funny and so far there is no romance at all. Overall it's a quite depressing setting and I guess not going towards a nice ending. I don't know the webtoon but you can clearly see that this series is based on one.
