Analyze Kyungsung Creature’s plot, characterization, and more.

‍At last, an all-new Netflix original drama,‘Kyungsung Creature,’ has arrived in front of audiences. In the previously released posters, the main characters, Park Seo Joon and Han So Hee, captivated the audience with their emotionally charged gazes.

‘Hardcore Creatures’ Plot

It tells the story of two men in 1945, during the darkest days of their lives, who must come face to face with a monster born of greed in order to survive. A unique feature of this drama is that there is no original webtoon. This further amplifies the audience’s curiosity about the ending. Perhaps because of this, the show, which is introducing a new genre of creature thriller in Korea, is raising expectations as a work with an original webtoon like the Sweet Home series.
