New Delhi: ”The Silent Sea”, the South Korean language sci-fi mystery thriller series starring Bae Doona and Gong Yoo, is scheduled to be released on Netflix on Christmas Eve.
The streaming platform made the announcement on the Instagram page of its Korean chapter on Monday.
”… December 24th only on Netflix. The best of the best in the world” reads the caption alongside the poster of the show with ”Kingdom” star Bae dressed in a spacesuit somewhere on the moon.
