Lee Joon In Talks To Join Sci-Fi Horror Drama Alongside Gong Yoo And Bae Doona
We may be seeing Lee Joon’s return to acting soon!
On June 15, it was reported that Lee Joon would be appearing in the upcoming Netflix original series “The Sea of Silence” (literal title). A source from his agency Prain TPC stated, “It’s true that Lee Joon has received an offer to appear in the drama and he is currently looking over it.”
If Lee Joon accepts the role, it will be his first drama since 2017’s “Father Is Strange.” He is said to have been offered the role of Tae Seok, a man with a military background who is intelligent, soft-spoken, and caring. He gets along with everyone on the team but if they really think about it, they don’t really know anything about him.
“The Sea of Silence” will be a sci-fi horror thriller that is set in the future, where desertification has left the earth with food and water shortages. A special team is tasked with retrieving mysterious samples from an abandoned research base on the moon.
The upcoming series will be based on a short film of the same name by director Choi Hang Yong, who was highlighted at the 13th Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival in 2014. Choi Hang Yong is set to direct the series, with Jung Woo Sung participating as a producer. Other actors who are in talks to join the series include Gong Yoo, Bae Doona, and Lee Joon Hyuk.
“The Sea of Silence” is set to begin filming this August.
