Netflix has confirmed director Roh Deok and actor Jeon Yeo-been for the production of its Original Series "Glitch." Glitch tells the story of Hong Jihyo, who attempts to track down her missing boyfriend with the help of members of a UFO club. In the process, she comes face to face with a mysterious secret.
The series will be directed by Roh Deok, known for her genre-crossing agility. With her hit film Very Ordinary Couple, her keen insight and refined aesthetic approach earned the film the Best Feature Award in the Asian New Talent category at the 16th Shanghai International Film Festival. Her versatile skills in each genre will be put to the test in this story about Jihyo and a UFO club chasing after unknown beings.
Jeon Yeo-been plays the lead role of Hong Jihyo. Jeon, who was lauded as a much-talented rookie actor in the film After My Death, went on to prove her staying power with performances in Vincenzo, Be Melodramatic, and the upcoming film, Night in Paradise. Her commanding presence and compelling acting bring to life the character Hong Jihyo. In her quest to find her boyfriend, she and the UFO club come face to face with unknown beings and the mysterious secret they harbor. Jeon Yeo-been is expected to portray this multidimensional character uniquely and imaginatively.
Glitch is gaining much attention as writer Gin Han-sai's next project, whose debut Netflix series Extracurricular shocked audiences around the world. Gin Han-sai’s bold writing style and keen insight kept viewers surprised in his debut series. Now in Glitch, he unravels an intriguing and intense story about members of a UFO club who pursue those who have disappeared in a mysterious beam of light. Their special quest, which seems preposterous to society at large, is told within the framework of a suspenseful comic thriller.
Glitch is produced by Yoon Shin-ae’s Studio 329. Their talented production team has created numerous significant shows in addition to Extracurricular.
This much-anticipated and exciting new collaboration among Gin, director Roh Deok, and actor Jeon Yeo-been with production by Studio 329, will be released only on Netflix in 2022.
