iPhone makers Apple has announced a date for the launching of its streaming service Apple TV+ in South Korea on November 4. In a case of perfect timing, the streaming service's first series from the country will debut worldwide on the same day (or a day earlier if you're in the US).
The sci-fi drama titled Dr. Brain is based on a popular webtoon with the same name. For those unaware webtoons are digital comics that originated in South Korea.
The series features Lee Sun-Kyun from the Oscar-winning movie Parasite who plays a brain scientist Sewon
The sci-fi series features Lee Sun-Kyun from the Oscar-winning movie Parasite fame (he played Park Dong-ik, the father of the well-off family) stars as brain scientist Sewon.
After Sewon's family suffers a mysterious accident, Sewon conducts “brain syncs” which is basically like hacking into the brains of the dead to access their memories for clues.
The six-episode series is co-written, directed and executive produced by the highly regarded filmmaker Kim Jee-Woon, who's perhaps best known for The Good, The Bad and The Weird and I Saw the Devil. A new episode of Dr. Brain will hit Apple TV+ each week until the finale on December 10th.
Dr. Brain is Apple’s first Korean-language series and it also marks the entry of a new streaming service in South Korea where Netflix is the only popular global player
