'Sweet Home', the latest Netflix original to release worldwide on the streaming site, is adapted from a webcomic of the same name by Kim Kan-bi and Hwang Young-chan which was published on Naver Webtoon Corp. The webtoon has ended and is quite popular among manhwa enthusiasts and that is what makes this show an exciting release.

According to the official synopsis of the show from Netflix, 'Sweet Home' is "a 10-episode VFX/SFX-filled thriller based on the unique world in which people turn into monsters that reflect their internal desires. Cha Hyeon-su, a reclusive high school student who moves into a new apartment called Green Home after a personal tragedy, faces a series of life-changing situations that brings him out to the world to save others."

Here are the cast members who will bring the characters from the comic to life. 

Song Kang as Cha Hyeon-su

Actor Song Kang who was last seen in the Netflix show 'Love Alarm' will play the lead role in this show. As Cha Hyeon-su, Song Kang will depict the life of a reclusive who is forced to face reality after the death of his family. The show is a supernatural thriller. Song Kang's break out role happened to be opposite Kim Soo-hyun in 'Love Alarm' and before that he had starred alongside Red Velvet's Joy in 'The Liar and His Lover'.

Lee Jin-wook who is well known for his role in the 'Voice' series that was aired on OCN will play an important role in the upcoming Netflix show as well and we cannot wait to see how he will add to the show. 

Lee Si-young as Seo Yi-kyung

Actor Lee Si-young who is well known for her role in 'No Mercy' most recently will play the role of Seo Yi-kyung who seems to take things into her own hand when she sees monsters attack humans who then become infected themselves and become bloodthirsty. As much as this looks like another zombie show, it is more an alien meets slasher thriller in which the lead guy himself is infected but is somehow able to hold himself in check to attack the monsters that are hurting humans. He gets support from Yi-kyung and Sang-wook to possibly bring about the downfall of these horrendous creatures. 

Lee Do-hyun as Lee Eun-Hyeok

Lee Do-hyun who rose to fame with his role in '18 Again' most recently will be seen playing another man who helps Yi-kyung and Hyeon-su survive the onslaught of monsters. He also seems to be someone who surveils his surroundings and we say that from the number of surveillance screens that he oversees. So will he be able to help the residents of Hyeon-su's new neighborhood from falling prey to the monsters that seem to be frequenting the neighborhood?

Other cast members include Kim Nam-hee of 'Mr Sunshine', Go Min-si of 'Love Alarm', Park Kyu-young of 'Romance is a Bonus Book' and Go Youn-jung of 'He Is Psychometric'. 'Sweet Home' is directed by star K-drama director Lee Eung-bok well known for 'Mr Sunshine', 'Goblin: The Lonely and Great God', 'Descendants of the Sun', produced by Studio Dragon, co-produced by Studio N, and written by Hong So-ri, Kim Hyung-min and Park So-jeong. 

'Sweet Home' is slated to release on December 18 and can be streamed on Netflix.
