The main trailer was released for Netflix series The Silent Sea, a story set in the near future of an elite team on a special mission to an abandoned research base on the moon, as resource depletion has devastated the Earth.
The trailer begins with an image of a desolate Earth. All life on Earth is threatened due to resource depletion. Korea’s Space and Aeronautics Administration finds the answer to the survival of mankind and plans another moon exploration mission led by an elite team comprised of astrobiologist Song Jian (Bae Doona), team leader Han Yunjae (Gong Yoo), head engineer Ryu Taesuk (Lee Joon), team doctor Doc Hong (Kim Sun-young), head of security Gong Soohyuk (Lee Mu-saeng), and spacecraft pilot Kim Heesun (Lee Sung-wook). Their destination is Balhae Lunar Research Station, closed down 5 years ago due to an accident. They take off with the important mission to “retrieve an important sample in the station and return to earth,” but are faced with an immense challenge as their spaceship makes a crash landing on the moon. They barely reach Balhae Lunar Research Station, which is veiled in mystery. Dead bodies with unknown causes of death and an unidentified signal of life lurks the team into chaos, while Song Jian starts to doubt the veracity of the government’s statement that the station was permanently closed down due to an accident. She has suspicions about the secrets hidden throughout Balhae Lunar Research Station. Tense life-and-death situations confront the elite team at the place they look for means of survival. They intuitively feel that unusual events will happen at the station, as one member chokes up blood-like water. Their attempts at escaping the station and communication with the outside fails, and they are stranded on the station that resembles a secret trap room. The headline “A Deadly mission will uncover the darkest secrets of the Moon” piques viewers’ curiosity on what secrets the unknown and silent sea holds, and whether the members tasked with the mission can safely return home. The main trailer calls attention to not only the secrets of Balhae Lunar Research Station, but also the realistic visualization of space and the moon. As the first Korean science fiction mystery thriller series, The Silent Sea perfectly recreates the vastness and stillness of the moon. Crash landing on the moon, the abandoned Balhae Lunar Research Station, the dust winds on the lunar surface and other refreshing scenes are sure to captivate viewers.
The Silent Sea, which stimulates viewers’ curiosity as unimaginable mysteries present themselves, will be released on December 24, only on Netflix.
