Rising Korean star Jung Hae-in stars in a Japanese horror master Takashi Miike’s Disney+ fantasy thriller series “Connect” as a man with special healing powers.
Based on the Naver webtoon of the same name by Shin Dae-sung, the series begins with Jung’s character Dong-soo (Jung) being kidnapped by organ hunters. Although he manages to escape, he is unable to retrieve his eye that was pulled out by the organ hunters. He later discovers that his eye has been transplanted to a serial killer (Go Kyung-pyo) and chases after him. Mysteriously, Dong-soo and the killer are somehow connected after the organ transplantation which made Dong-soo see what the serial killer sees.
During the press conference held at Grand Josun Busan on Friday to celebrate that series being invited to the Busan International Film Festival’s On Screen section, actor Jung shared how he worked with the Japanese director.
The first three episodes of the six-part series premiered at BIFF on Thursday. [TheKoreaHerald]
