November 20, 2021

This article explains who dies in the Netflix K-Drama Hellbound season 1 series, and it will contain spoilers.

The nature of the story in Hellbound is fatal. The whole concept is death, so it’s not for the faint hearted. The K-Drama series shows a supernatural event where monsters apparently send their subjects to their deaths, and there is a religious sentiment involved. You never really understand where these monsters come from, but there are a number of deaths. We have decided to list the deaths of notable figures.

Who Dies in Netflix K-Drama Series Hellbound season 1 ?

Here is the list of significant deaths in order of episodes.

Episode 2 – Kim Changsik

Kim Changsik doesn’t get killed by monsters. He is a murderer himself, and in the past he killed Kyunghun’s wife.

Kyunghun’s daughter, Heejun, teams up with Jun Jinsun to find the murderer. In revenge for his mother’s death, Heejun puts Kim Changsik in an incinerator. It is an excruciating death, and we can hear his screams. Jun Jinsun convinced the young girl that justice had not been served for her mother’s murderer because he had only served six years in prison.

This death becomes relevant for episode 3.

Episode 2 – Jungja Park

Park Jungja is one of the first important characters to be killed by the monsters after receiving the prophecy. A mother of two is invited to broadcast her disappearance and, in return, she will secure the future of her two children.

However, this is where the story gets aggressive. As “The New Truth” followers escalate, Park Jungja must send his children to another country for their safety.

When the countdown is over, the monsters come to shred it. His death is crucial as it sets off a series of events brought about by “The New Truth” and Arrowhead.

Episode 3 – President Jun Jinsun

Jun Jinsun’s death is a great twist on the series. He is the person who controls “The New Truth” and initiated the doctrine that monsters are angels sent to earth to send those who have sinned to hell.

However, as we come to the end of Episode 3, Jun Jinsun has caused a lot of chaos for Min Hyejin and Kyunghun.

Ultimately, Kyunghun confronts Jun Jinsun. The president reveals that 20 years ago he received a prophecy that he would be killed in 20 years. He leaves the choice to Kyunghun; save his death and send his daughter to jail for the murder of Kim Changsik or keep his death a secret and continue living in the world he created for himself and his daughter.

Ultimately, Kyunghun chooses the latter, and Kyunghun faces his demise at the hands of the monsters. Once again, another crucial death.

Episode 4 – Junwon (Youngjae’s colleague)

While Junwon was not the most important figure, his death was significant as it led Youngjae to the path of truth. After the monsters killed Junwon, Youngjae discovered the reality of “The New Truth”.

Episode 5 – Hyeongjun

Professor Hyeongjun is a central character in the second half of Season 1. Not only does he help Min Hyejin’s cause bring down “The New Truth,” but he also helps Youngjae in his stressful situation with his newborn baby.

Unfortunately for Hyeongjun, “The New Truth” and Arrowhead capture him, and once they have the information they need from him, they cruelly cremate the man.

Episode 6 – Mr. Lee

While Mr. Lee didn’t stay on the show long, he was a nuisance before the monsters came to kill him.

His death was opportune.

Episode 6 – Youngjae and his wife, Song Sohyun

It is without a doubt the most heartbreaking and important death of the season. As the monsters try to kill their newborn baby, Youngjae and his wife Song Sohyun try to fight them off, but they are continually overpowered.

The parents’ love prevails, and the two characters cover their newborn baby and sacrifice themselves. The monsters kill the parents and disappear, but their newborn survives.

It was an emotional sacrifice to end the season. And that means Min Hyejin could potentially become the baby’s stepmother as she runs away with the child at the end to get to safety. Season 2 can shed more light on what is happening to them.
