We first swooned over him in Coffee Prince, and fell in love all over again in Goblin. And now, according to Soompi, Gong Yoo is possibly returning to the small screen! Here’s all you need to know about it.


The project is a Netflix original entitled The Sea of Silence

Sorry, rom-com fans—based on the plot synopsis, this won’t be a lighthearted romp. The sci-fi thriller is set in a futuristic dystopian Earth, where resources are scarce due to desertification. The story focuses on a special aeronautics team assigned to retrieve important samples from an abandoned research base on the moon.

Production will start this year

The screenwriter is Park Eun Kyo, who collaborated with Parasite director Bong Joon Ho on the script of the award-winning movie, Mother. Meanwhile, Hallyu superstar Jung Woo Sung is also set to join—as an executive producer!
