“Parasyte: The Grey” Trailer: A New Sci-fi Hellscape from Train to Busan Creator

Netflix has recently dropped the eagerly awaited trailer for “Parasyte: The Grey,” a brand-new Korean series that melds horror and science fiction elements into a gripping narrative. The show is the brainchild of Yeon Sang-ho, the acclaimed filmmaker behind hits such as “Train to Busan” and “Hellbound.”

A Glimpse into a Terrifying Invasion

The trailer introduces viewers to a South Korea under siege by a mysterious plague of parasites that take over human hosts, threatening the fabric of society. Central to the story is Su-in, a young woman caught in the crossfire of her dual existence, not fully aligning with either the parasitic entities seeking to dominate human society or “The Grey,” a group committed to halting the parasitic menace.

From Manga to Screen

“Parasyte: The Grey” is an adaptation of Hitoshi Iwaaki’s internationally celebrated manga series “Parasyte,” which boasts over 25 million copies sold across more than 30 countries. This adaptation is brought to life by a stellar cast including Jeon So-nee, Koo Kyo-hwan, Lee Jung-hyun, Kwon Hae-ho, and Kim In-kwon. The series promises to be a thrilling exploration of identity, survival, and the blurred lines between humanity and the alien other.

Produced by Climax Studio and WOW POINT, the series is not only created but also co-written and directed by Yeon Sang-ho. Yeon has garnered international acclaim for his unique approach to the horror and sci-fi genres, with “Train to Busan” and its sequel “Peninsula” achieving global success. His venture into television with the Netflix series “Hellbound” further cemented his status as a filmmaker capable of weaving compelling narratives within fantastical worlds. With “Hellbound’s” success leading to the confirmation of a second season, expectations are high for “Parasyte: The Grey.”
