Just a few months after the incredible success of Squid Game, which Netflix has announced as its most popular series ever, the streaming service has a new Korean horror show on the way called Hellbound. The new series will be released on Nov. 19, when subscribers will be able to watch all six episodes of the show.

Hellbound takes place in a world where everyone knows their own time of death. Even worse, when the fateful moment arrives, giant monsters appear to drag your soul to hell. In September, Netflix released a great trailer showing off these monsters hunting someone down, but most of the series will focus on a mysterious church that believes the creatures are divine; a variety of characters will investigate the church and its cult-like leader. The story is based on director Yeon Sang-ho’s webtoon, which is only officially available in Korean at the moment.

Sang-ho, the director of Train to Busan and its sequel, returns to the story to direct all six episodes of Hellbound. The series will star Yoo Ah-in (Burning), Park Jeong-min (Deliver Us from Evil), Kim Hyun-joo, and Won Jin-ah (The Age of Shadows). Hellbound was also the first Korean drama to ever play at the Toronto International Film Festival, where the series premiered earlier this year.
