After much anticipation, famed Korean storyteller Kim Eunhee is set to return to the screen with Revenant, a breathtaking series about demons, death and the dangers of the occult slated to debut June 23 on Disney+ Hotstar.
A Korean occult mystery thriller, Revenant tells the story of Gu Sanyeong, a woman born into poverty whose life goes from bad to worse when her father dies under mysterious circumstances.
Unable to explain why tragedy seems to follow her at every turn, Sanyeong begins to discover the truth behind her cursed existence after meeting Yeom Haesang, a man who can see the demons that hold sway over our lives. Together, the pair will work to uncover a demonic doorway and break the curse that has destroyed both of their families.
Written by Kim Eunhee, the mastermind behind hit Korean series Kingdom, Signal, and Sign, Revenant is directed by Lee Jeonglim (VIP, The Last Empress) and Kim Jaehong (Blossom Sisters, Blooded Palace); and stars Kim Taeri (The Handmaiden, Mr. Sunshine) as Gu Sanyeong, a woman whose father died under mysterious circumstances; and Oh Jungse (It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, When the Camellia Blooms) as Yeom Haesang, a man with the ability to see demons.
