If you’re a fan of Korean dramas or if you were impressed by Squid game or My name, we’ll tell you what you need to know not to miss the release of this series that promises to elevate the name of South Korea once again.

Chaos erupts in the city due to the presence of the entities. Thus is born Saejinrihwe, a religion that views angels as a divine revelation. Jung Jin Soo (Yoo Ah In), leader and founder of the cult, will gain followers with his strange charisma.

The population will be divided between those who see the entities as heavenly envoys and those who fear them. At the same time, the power of the new religion will grow.

Bae Young Jae, director of a radio program, will try to reveal what is behind Saejinrihwe. On the other hand, Detective Jin Kyung Hoon will try to solve the mystery of the “angels of death.”

Yeon also co-wrote the script for the series with Choi Gyu Suk. Both creators also wrote and illustrated respectively the popular webtoon on which the new production on Netflix is based.

The streaming platform presents it as its first Korean original series since My Name. The latter took the place of Squid game, a hit that will return with a second season.
