Netflix has now confirmed the release date of the highly anticipated Bae Doona and Gong Yoo drama The Silent Sea. Plus, the streaming giant has released a new teaser poster showing just how scary the new series is going to be.
The picture shows The Silent Sea’s official release date, which will be December 24th. The series will consist of eight episodes and fans can look forward to an epic story.
The series is set in the year 2075 when the earth turns into a desert with no food or water, according to AllKpop. It is no longer a habitable planet, so a group of researchers risk their lives to go on a dangerous mission to save the earth in an abandoned research station on the moon.
Gong Yoo will play the main role of Han Yoon-jae. He will be the group leader who will take on the critical mission of retrieving samples from the station.
Alternatively, Bae Doona plays Dr. Song Ji-ahn. She is an astrobiologist who will work with the team to find out what happened at the research station.
She believes there is a secret behind the accident on the moon that she wants to uncover. Lee Joon also joins the series as engineer Ryu Tae-seok.
Talking about her role, Bae Doona said that her spacesuit was really heavy, as Soompi noted. She even panicked when she saw how heavy it was to carry.
Fortunately, the actors would always help each other. We had a sense of camaraderie, she said.
She has now got used to her suite, which now feels light as a feather. She also went into the production work, saying that everything on the set was shaped by the imagination as the story took place in space. So they were filming while wondering what it would look like, but they promised that they would work hard and have fun until the end.
Netflix announced the release of The Silent Sea in September last year, as reported by NME. The series was produced by Jung Woo-sing, who starred in the films A Moment to Remember and Steel Rain.
The Silent Sea is based on the 2014 short film by Choi Hang-yong entitled The Sea of Tranquility. Choi is also directing the Netflix adaptation of the film, which he co-wrote with award-winning screenwriter Park Eun-kyo. Fans will soon see Gong Yoo and Bae Doona back on screen.
