K-Drama Sneak Peek: “Sweet Home” Paints A Terrifying World Destroyed By Greed-Sucking Monsters

By  | 

Welcome to the world’s sweetest home where you are fated to either die as a human or live as a monster.

Netflix braces us for Sweet Home’s perfect irony of dark and chilling narrative. Adapted from a popular thriller webtoon of the same name, the series threads on the contrasting idea of a quiet and peaceful abode. It rather depicts a cruel world filled with violence and gore as humans turn into monsters.

The series will introduce viewers to a kind of wicked force that springs from human greed. As greed devours the person’s whole being, it turns him into an evil, destructive creature.

Sweet Home

Plot Overview

Sweet Home follows the story of Cha Hyun Su (Song Kang), a reclusive high school student who is a victim of bullying at school. A tragic accident takes the lives of everyone in his family and forces him to move to an old apartment called Green Home.

He begins to notice strange and ominous things taking place around him. A devious force creeps into the consciousness of humans and feeds their wicked desires transforming them into monsters.

As the string of violent events starts to occur, residents choose to take refuge inside the Green Home building. However, they soon realize that they are instead trapped in an evil realm with an almost zero chance of escaping.
