A new Netflix Korean series is approaching featuring a superb cast and production team in The Silent Sea!
Netflix, the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, confirmed the casting of Bae Doona, Gong Yoo and Lee Joon for new Korean sci-fi mystery thriller The Silent Sea.
Sketched in the distant future when the Earth has already been deserted, the series narrates the story of a special team. They are sent to secure sample from an abandoned research facility on the moon.

Yun-jae puts the safety of his team members above all else and does not refrain from putting himself in jeopardy to do so.
Lee Joon plays Captain Ryu Tae Seok, a senior engineer and a former elite member of the Defense Ministry. As he was frustrated being held back in the ministry, he then volunteered for the dangerous mission.
This marks as his next project, following his drama My Father Is Strange in 2017. He is the current radio DJ of SBS PowerFM Lee Joon’s Youngstreet.
