Counting Down to Sweet Home Netflix Series Premiere

I've been going around brain-washing people at the office to watch Shingeki No Kyojin (Attack On Titan), because the first episode of its season finale just started yesterday, December 7, 2020. I'm still on season 2 right now but I'd still get to the fourth season sooner than those who just started, right? Muhuhaha. The more people to talk about it the better, but unfortunately, this post is not about Attack On Titan. It's about something else I've been waiting for too. Sweet Home!

Sweet Home is a Webtoon series that started on January 15, 2018, and ended on September 29, 2020. I was so sad because after reading it for two years, it really ended- just a day after my birthday. Now that December 18 is only 10 days away.. I feel kind of ecstatic to write about it.


Netflix series Sweet Home (μŠ€μœ„νŠΈν™ˆ) the first season consists of 10 episodes and is directed by Lee Eung Bok, the same director of Descendant of the Sun and Goblin. I honestly don't know who Song Kang is (acts as Cha Hyun Soo) because I haven't watched any of his drama, but I know Lee Do Hyun (acts as Lee Eun Hyuk) from Hotel Del Luna. That sad fireflies guy who waited for Man Wol for three thousand years as fireflies and still didn't get the girl. I really need to see Sweet Home to see if I can let go of that fireflies-guy image after seeing him in this series. As for the female leads, I know Park Kyu Young from IONTBO and Go Min Si from The Smile Has Left Your Eyes (hate that sucky ending).

For me, Sweet Home is a story about how Hyun, a suicidal boy who lost a family in a car accident, going through superb character development while fighting for humanity and controlling his desire during the monster outbreak. Also, the fact that the whole story's setting takes place inside an apartment building is really thrilling.

I smiled when I opened Netflix's page and found "This show is.. Scary, Dark, Suspenseful." under "More Details".

Do you know that this Netflix series is said to have the highest production cost in K-Drama history? Yes, it costs about US$2,4 million for each episode. It even surpasses Arthdal Chronicles with a production cost of US$2 million per episode. Knowing that, I would expect a good CGI with the monsters too and the trailer is looking pretty insane :3


Meet all the casts in the poster teaser. Hope to see them soon in the first episode!
