K-drama review: Hellbound – in Netflix’s transfixing and endlessly surprising dystopia, directed by Train to Busan’s Yeon Sang-ho, everyone is pitted against each other

  • This six-part series from the director of Train to Busan based on a web comic is dark and utterly riveting. Yoo Ah-in plays the leader of a religious sect
  • Massive plot twists, impressive set pieces, urgent pacing and a unique narrative structure make Hellbound a winner. Even better, it sets up a second season
