Netflix continues adding to its ever-expanding K-horror library (Korean Horror). The latest addition is the series “Parasyte: The Grey,” based on the acclaimed manga “Patasyte” by Hitoshi Iwaaki.

A Legacy of Horror

Originally published from 1989 to 1994, the manga garnered widespread praise for its masterful blend of complex characters, philosophical themes, and a unique combination of body horror and dark humor. This manga has been translated into several adaptations. That includes a popular TV anime and two live-action films.

Drawing inspiration from the source material, “Parasyte: The Grey” introduces a new narrative and characters. The series follows a group known as “Team Grey.” They are a clandestine organization dedicated to fighting a terrifying threat – parasitic creatures.

At the helm of this new adaptation is director Yeon Sang-ho, renowned for crafting captivating horror narratives. You have probably seen his series “Hellbound” and the global phenomenon Train to Busan. He was behind both.

“In my twenties, ‘Parasyte’ was a cornerstone for those of us passionate about manga and animation. Having the opportunity to build upon it and create something new is not only a great honor but also a dream come true from my younger years.” Sang-ho has stated.

A Must Watch

With its fresh narrative and a talented cast, “Parasyte: The Grey” promises to be a thrilling and thought-provoking experience for sci-fi and horror fans. Netflix will unleash the new series “Parasyte: The Grey” on April 5th, 2024.

Whether you are a long-time fan of K-horror or you are just now discovering it, Netflix has a massive library you should check out, from Sang-ho’s series “Hellbound,” to “Squid Game,” and the series “Gyeongseong Creature.” For more K-horror series and films, please visit our K-horror section.
