Kdrama lovers, you are in for a treat! Netflix is bringing you to the moon with its upcoming Kdrama series, 'The Silent Sea'.
The series will see one of Korea's most famous actors, Gong Yoo, for the lead role, along with other A-list K stars. Gong Yoo is known for his roles in Goblin, Train to Busan, and Coffee Prince.
Netflix recently poured $500 million as an investment for content from South Korea, and 'The Silent Sea' could be the best one yet.

Netflix has not announced a specific release date yet, but we know that the show is coming sometime this year, 2021.
The show is set in a not-so-distant future, where the Earth is barren and slowly dying. The planet's only chance of survival lies in the hands of a specialist team sent to the Moon to retrieve a sample from the now-abandoned Balhae Base research.
