Head to the Moon This Christmas Eve with The Silent Sea, Starring Bae Donna and Gong Yoo

An intense sci-fi thriller set in an uncharted territory, The Silent Sea is the first K-series to land on the moon.

Netflix has confirmed that sci-fi thriller The Silent Sea will be launched on 24 December, alongside a brand new teaser poster. Set in the year 2075 when depletion of natural resources has devastated Earth, this Netflix Series tells the story of an elite team sent on a special mission to an abandoned research base on the moon.

The poster for The Silent Sea, unveiled for its Christmas Eve launch to the moon, depicts Song Jian (Bae Doona), an astrobiologist who has just set foot on the moon. She is a member of an elite team sent to the moon to save Earth, which has been depleted of its natural resources, from ruin. The image of a lone figure on the moon, which is still an infinitely mysterious place that remains an uncharted territory for humans, piques our curiosity in this story of exploration and raises the question, “What happened at the abandoned Korean research base?” While looking for clues to save Earth, team members encounter mysterious predicaments and unforeseen events that occur in outer space. Their fates hanging by a thread will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.

The Silent Sea is a series based on director Choi Hang-yong’s short film by the same name, which received much acclaim at the 13th Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival in 2014. Actor Jung Woo-sung was enthralled by this story that Choi has been crafting over a decade. 

“I loved the spectacular ideas behind the story. I wanted to be involved in creating a sci-fi series that is uniquely Korean,” said Jung, whose participation in the production of the series has garnered much attention. Also joining the creative team of this intriguing story of exploration is writer Park Eun-kyo, who received the Best Screenplay award at the Korean Association of Film Critics Awards for Mother and at the Blue Dragon Awards for Crush and Blush. 

A juggernaut cast — consisting of Bae Doona, Gong Yoo, Lee Joon, and more — portrays the elite team members who risk their lives to accomplish the special mission. With the synergy and intense suspense they create, sci-fi thriller The Silent Sea is primed to become a grand finale for Korean films and series in 2021.

The Silent Sea will be released worldwide on 24 December, only on Netflix.
