Drama Trailer|Netflix’s Sweet Home

Drama Trailer|Netflix’s Sweet Home

Hey BAYOG Fam! I got a quick post for y’all today~ Finally a drama related post!~ So you might me remember recommending a Korean webtoon called [Sweet Home] way back ago. As you all know, I typically lean towards romance kind of series. I’m actually usually not a big fan of the apocalyptic genre. However, I really liked Sweet Home because it honestly had some of the best character development that I’ve seen in a series. I also just liked that it was a different kind of apocalyptic series. Usually it’s like a zombie apocalypse. However, Sweet Home is interesting because it’s about the battle with one’s inner demons. The monster inside manifesting into a physical monster. It also poses an interesting thought on people being monsters, monsterization or not.

Before we start….
[TRIGGER/CONTENT WARNING]
This series contains themes relating to self-harm and suicide.
This series also contains some graphic images, gore, and violence.

PLOT

Meet Cha Hyun, an 18 year old high schooler. He’s a social recluse with a history of self-harm. For the most part Hyun keeps himself locked in his room. There, he stays in his own little world on his computer screen. Tragedy claims his entire family, leaving Hyun all alone. Hyun moves into an apartment by himself in the middle of nowhere. With nothing left, Hyun plans to end his life. However, Hyun soon finds himself fighting for his life. An epidemic is causing people to turn into monsters. The world looks like it’s ending, and Hyun finds himself trapped in the apartment building. Hyun is left with two options: Hide and live in fear…or try to be a hero, face his fears, and survive. Will he and the other survivors manage to fight the monsters and survive? Most importantly, can Hyun fight the monster inside of himself?

Anyway, it was previously announced that Netflix would be producing a live action drama adaptation of the series. Well friends, the first trailer has finally dropped! So I bring you the trailer~

The announcement of Netflix’s adaptation previously garnered alot of attention because supposedly it had a $2.4 MILLION budget PER EPISODE. I believe it makes it Netflix’s most expensive live action adaptation to date. As for the trailer, it’s not much. But it does give us a preview of the apartment building and Hyun as well as his inner monster.

To get my hopes up, or nah?

I can’t really say whether I have high expectations of this drama or not. The fact that they had a big budget could mean that it’s good, or can just mean shit. Still, I want to hope that the big budget means we do get a quality adaptation. However, we all know Netflix has a reputation of some very questionable live action adaptations of Asian media… [Death Note], we’re most definitely looking at you. Although there have been cases where we’ve been proven that Netflix can actually do decent, and even good adaptations. Such as Netflix’s live action drama adaptation of [Erased]. While Erased looked a bit more low budget, it was still a surprisingly great adaptation.

We’ve also got an interesting cast. I recognize some of these actors and their previous works. So cast wise, it looks good.

  • CHA HYUN/CHA HYUN-SOO
    Song Kang| Notable Works: Love Alarm, Touch Your Heart
  • PYEON WOOK/PYEON SANG WOOK
    Lee Jin Wook| Notable Works: Voice 2, Voice 3, The Time We Were Not In Love, Miss Granny
  • SEO YI KYUNG [*Note: This is an original character for the drama]
    Lee Si Young| Notable Works: Wild Romance, My Beautiful Bride
  • YOON JISU
    Park Kyu Young| Notable Works: It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, Romance Is A Bonus Book, Nokdu Flower
  • LEE HYUK/LEE EUN HYEOK
    Lee Do Hyun| Notable Works: Hotel Del Luna, Prison Playbook
  • LEE EUN
    Go Min Si| Notable Works: The Smile Has Left Your EyesLiveAge of Youth 2, Love Alarm
  • JAEHYUN/JANG JAE HUN
    Kim Nam Hee| Notable Works: Find Me in Your Memory, Goblin, Mr. Sunshine, Search: WWW
  • PARK YURI
    Go Yoon Jung| Notable Works: He Is Psychometric, The School Nurse Files
  • AHN SEOP/AHN GIL SEOP
    Kim Gab Soo| Notable Works: Hospital Playlist, Mr. Sunshine, Chief of Staff 2

I’m familiar with Song Kang, Lee Jin Wook, Lee Do Hyun, and Go Yoon Jung from other dramas. I’m pretty excited about Lee Do Hyun though because I loved him in Hotel Del Luna, even if he was just a side character. I’m glad he was able to land such a big project. But yeah, we’ve got a decent cast. So hopefully that’s a good sign that this drama won’t fail our expectations. Other than the brief trailer, the cast list, and some pictures from [Asian Wiki]…there isn’t much info on the series yet. But it seems like there are some character name changes as well as an addition of an original drama only character. So that tells us that it will have differences from the original webtoon. How much though? We don’t know.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We are all too familiar with the racism that we, our friends, and family have faced on a daily basis. Every life is precious. However, as BIPOC, we also recognize that black people are a group of people that face extreme racism and at a higher risk for their safety. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation and understanding. Make sure to have those conversations. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

You can also check out the following:

Stay strong. Fight racism, brutality, injustice, and bullshit. Don’t lose sight of the goal. We’re witnessing and being a part of history. Be allies and make sure change happens. Once again, BLACK LIVES MATTER.

  1. I’ve read a bit of the webtoon. That’s an insane budget per episode! I’m definitely going to watch it when it comes out.

    1. I assume most of the budget is for CGI work. But I really hope it’s at least decent CGI…cuz we’ve seen some pretty bad CGI in the past lol I also hope that it’s not going to be a drama where the CGI looks decent/good, but the set and other elements look on the lower end…
