Netflix's New K-drama Hellbound Is Here, And Everyone's Obsessed

Adding this to our watchlist ASAP

Netflix's huge selection of K-dramas have been quickly filling up our watchlists - from this year's big hit Squid Game, to fan-favourites Vincenzo and Kingdom.

And now, there's a new Netflix K-drama that everyone's obsessed with, and it looks epic.

Introducing: Hellbound. The streaming platform's new crime-mystery is about as dark as it gets, telling the story of otherworldly beasts who arrive on earth to profit from people's deaths and condemn them to hell, giving rise to an ominous religious group in the process.

Hellbound debuted on the streamer on Friday [19 November], with all six episodes of season 1 dropping at once. Despite the show literally just coming out, fans are already thoroughly invested, taking to Twitter to share their excitement.

The show is currently ranking at No.2 in India (at the time of writing). So, yep, time to get this one on your watchlist ASAP.


For those who've already watched it, the reviews are in and fans are pretty much obsessed, with many already calling for a second season.

One viewer dubbed the show "so good but so disturbing on so many levels," while another wrote, "#Hellbound is frustrating the 'hell' outta me and makes me wanna scream ... but in a good way".

Meanwhile, another described the series as what would happen if "Squid Game and The Handmaid’s Tale had a baby". Sounds like a pretty chilling combo to us.

Others are *very* keen for the show to get a season 2, so here's hoping there'll be more where that came from. Here's what the rest of Twitter had to say:

I started watching hellbound and I’m literally obsessed with this drama

what do you guys think so far? #kdrama #Hellbound #kdramatwt

The final scene of Hellbound has me shocked and hopeful for a second season. Maybe some questions will be answered. What a great show! #Hellbound #Netflix

Loved #Hellbound on Netflix, for how it presents a supernatural concept that is explained neither to the world within the show nor to us. The ambiguity works wonders. The complex human chaos that ensues is captured to incredibly engaging effect in a uniquely split-up narrative.

#Netflix well seems like Squid Game and the Handmaid’s Tale had a baby #Hellbound 😂😂

#Hellbound is so good but so disturbing on so many levels. 😖 Yoo Ah In is amazing as usual. #YooAhIn #Netflix #kdrama

..but in a good way..#Netflix #HellboundNetflix

Here's hoping there's more on the way!
