I wanted to tell the story of Hellbound in the more prolonged series format rather than as a film….It is fascinating to watch artists of our time craft and perfect the narrative of each character. All I had to do was convey to the viewers what I felt watching the actors perform.Director Yeon Sang-ho
‘Hellbound’ is from director Yeon Sang-ho (‘Train to Busan’ director) and writing partner Choi Gyu-seok.
