Yoo Ah-in gives big praises for the script of “Hellbound”

Actor Yoo Ah-in has transformed into a religious leader on Netflix’s “Hellbound” and boasts his new charm. Director Yeon Sang-ho confessed that even in his dreams he wanted Yoo Ah-in to be in the cast.

At a press conference to introduceHellbound held on the morning of November 16th, Yoo Ah-in said “The script was so well written that I didn’t have to think too much about how to express it on the set,” adding, “I did the acting to the max of my ability as I worked on the scene after consulting with the director.”

“I had a prior discussion about the character with the director instead of just acting as written, but I left myself open to how the character would react and to what point I would go to on the set,” he added.

Director Yeon Sang-ho was even more desperate for Yoo Ah-in’s casting because he made the role of a religious leader with Yoo Ah-in in mind. However, Yoo Ah-in took time to think about it and made him worry. In response, Yoo Ah-in said, “We have to negotiate the fees,” drawing laughter.

The actor confessed he actually liked the drama from the beginning, “There are works that are immediately attracted to you with just a few keywords and a few lines of explanation. ‘Hellbound’ is such a work. I was drawn to it even before I saw the script. I went crazy after hearing the summary.”

Director Yeon Sang-ho made everyone laugh by recalling, “I once had a dream. In my dream, Yoo Ah-in told me ‘I’m Yoo Ah-in. I’ll do it.’ Then I woke up and realized it was just a dream. I cried. But after that, Yoo Ah-in called me for real. He said he decided to participate in the work. I jumped 2 meters and shouted ‘yahoo~’.” Hearing this, Yoo Ah-in replied in a hilarious way, “Isn’t that a lie? Were there really tears on your cheeks?”

Netflix’s “Hellbound” is a drama about the supernatural phenomenon in which people are dragged to hell without notice by mysterious creatures. A cult sees this as an opportunity to take control while some try to uncover the secret behind the religious group.
