What is the K-Drama Connect about?
There is a sci-fi horror aspect to this new K-Drama that stars Jung Hae-in as Ha Dong-soo.
In a horrifying turn of events, Dong-soo is kidnapped by organ harvesters and awakens on a hospital bed with one eye missing. Ha Dong-soo, who seems to be a host for an alien parasite, can bizarrely still see through the missing eye. However, he finds that his eye is being used by a serial killer. This murderer has been operating in Seoul, and Dong-soo decides that he must track him down and find out the truth about his missing eye and his new powers.
This is a crazy and messed up plot synopsis, but it is certainly intriguing. From what we can gather, this will be a dark and violent sci-fi horror, a departure from leading man Jung Ha-ein that has mainly played in lighter fare such as Something in the Rain and Snowdrop.
The series was directed by Takashi Miike, a name that many of you will recognize from some shocking and controversial productions such as Audition and Ichi the Killer. It is safe to assume that the darker tone of this show is something Takashi is very familiar with, as many of his previous films were often criticized for excessive and disturbing violence and imagery, and this series will be the first K-Drama that has had a Japanese director.
Connect is adapted from a webtoon, but how close it sticks to the story has yet to be seen. With this particular director and the subject matter, it looks like Connect will be a real rollercoaster of a show with sci-fi horror and thriller elements combined. It appears that this show is hoping to push the popularity of K-Dramas even further with a series that is offering something new and original.
