Netflix has now confirmed the release date of the much-awaited Bae Doona and Gong Yoo drama, "The Silent Sea." The streaming giant also shares a new teaser poster, showing how eerie the new show will be.
The image holds the official release date of "The Silent Sea," which will be on Dec. 24. The series will have a set of eight episodes and fans can expect it to be epic.
The show will take place in the year 2075, when Earth has become a desert with no food or no water, per AllKpop. It is no longer an inhabitable planet, so a group of researchers will put their lives on the line to go on a dangerous mission in an abandoned research station based on the moon to save Earth.
Here, Gong Yoo will play the lead role of Han Yoon-jae. He will be the group leader who will be taking the critical mission of retrieving samples from the station.
Alternatively, Bae Doona plays Dr. Song Ji-ahn. She is an astrobiologist who will work with the team to know what happened at the research station.
She believes there is a secret behind the accident on the moon that she wants to discover. In addition, Lee Joon also joins the show as engineer Ryu Tae-seok.
Talking about her role, Bae Doona said her space suit was "really heavy," Soompi noted. It even made her panic, seeing how difficult it was to wear.
But, thankfully, the actors would always help each other. "We had a sense of comradeship," she said.
She is now used to her suite that it now feels "as light as a feather." In addition, she also tackled the production works, saying everything on the set had been formed by the imagination since the story was set in space. So, they were filming while wondering how it would look but promised they worked hard and had fun until the end.
Netflix first announced the coming of "The Silent Sea" in September last year, NME cited. The show was executive produced by Jung Woo-sing, who was the star of the movies "A Moment to Remember" and "Steel Rain."
"The Silent Sea" is based on the 2014 short movie of Choi Hang-yong, titled "The Sea of Tranquility." Choi also directs the Netflix adaptation of the film, co-written with the award-winning screenwriter Park Eun-kyo. In no time, fans are about to see Gong Yoo and Bae Doona back on the small screen.
