The top notch cast alone is enough to make me excited for new Netflix Korean drama The Silent Sea. But the plot sounds intriguing too. It’s a sci-fi thriller that takes place in the year 2075. Set in future, it tells about the time when earth has suffered severe climate change, leading to desertification. A team of elite scientists are then sent to an abandoned research station on the moon called The Silent Sea, in order to recover a mysterious sample in this top secret mission. Space based mystery thrillers can be really exciting so I’m looking forward to marathon this show. I love Gong Yoo and Bae Doo Na so there is no way I was missing this anyway!
Gong Yoo (Goblin) plays the team leader, Bae Doo Na (Stranger) stars as a space biologist, Lee Joon plays a senior engineer and Kim Sun Young (Crash Landing on You) plays the team doctor. Lee Joon also had another drama premiere recently with tvN’s fantasy Bulgasal: Immortal Souls. But The Silent Sea is the first project he signed since he was discharged from mandatory military service in 2019. His last drama role was in 2017’s hit weekend drama Father Is Strange.
The Silent Sea is penned by the writer of acclaimed movies like The Naked Kitchen and Mother. The show is premiering on Netflix so we can definitely expect a quality production. All 8 episodes of the drama would be released together today.
