After the success of Goblin, our Gong Yoo is finally confirmed to join the casts of the upcoming Netflix series, The Silent Sea! (literal translation)
The Silent Sea is a Netflix sci-fi horror series which will be produced by Jung Woo Sung. It is written by Park Eun Gye who’s also behind the script of Mother.
The story focuses on a dystopian future where water and food are scarce due to the desertification worldwide. It is a sci-fi horror series that focuses on the elite soldiers who will go to a research station in the moon to get some mysterious samples. Sea of Silence is also based from the short-series film by Choi Hang Yong who received a lot of attention at the 13th Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival in 2014.
Gong Yoo will play the role of Yoon Jae, a member of the aerospace department and the leader of team ‘Sea of Peace.’ The role perfectly fits Gong Yoo due to his amazing work ethics and strong charisma.
Bae Doona from Kingdom will also join the series. She will play the role of Ji An, an astrobiologist.
Lee Joon Hyuk and Kim Sun Young also joins the line-up as Su Chan and Heo Jeong Do respectively.
This will be Gong Yoo’s first ever Netflix series. He previously worked with Jung Yu Mi in the film, Kim Ji-young: Born 1982. It will be his return in television drama since Goblin.
Sea of Silence will be produced with 8 episodes and will begin shooting in around August. The drama will be a perfect opportunity to introduce Korea’s VFX technology globally.
