'Hellbound' tops the list of global TV series on Netflix on the day of release

AKP STAFF

'Hellbound' has topped the list of global TV series on Netflix.

Within a day of its release, the new Korean drama featuring Yoo Ah In achieved global success on Netflix. This record is faster than the rate of 'Squid Game', which had topped the same chart in eight days after its debut. Currently, 'Squid Game' remains in the second place following 'Hellbound'.

Soon after its debut, the new series topped the charts across 24 different locations, including Belgium, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Morocco. It ranked second place in France and India, and third in the United States and Germany.

'Hellbound' has been created and directed by Yeon Sang Ho, well-known for his hits 'Train to Busan' and 'Peninsula'. Lead actors alongside Yoo Ah In include Park Jung Min, Kim Hyun Joo, and Won Jin Ah. The plot revolves around a religious group founded on the idea of divine justice, resulting in a utter social chaos.

It went up because people were curious since "Squid Game". Even though i praise all the actors on the show (i think they were all top 5 as expected), the show itself didn't conquered me and the reason I watched it in one go it was because I fastforward many scenes...

The demons were a turned off. Every single time they reminded me of a "dressed in black Hulks". I swear i could see Thor and Loki being beaten over and over again. The baby... (Sigh). The plot, as many others on the same theme, leaves so many questions answered. I watched a mixed of "Save me" with "Equilibrium" and "The Purge". I think it works great as a webtoon but not enough as an action show since people are looking for something more realistic. And that's where Squid Game takes the lead. The theme itself is not new, "How far would you go for money and how much it would take to get you there", but the way it was presented was innovating and captivating.
