Netflix’s ‘Sea of ​​Silence’ (director Choi Hang-yong), the first sci-fi series attempted in Korea, maintains the top 3 in the global Netflix rankings. In a situation where likes and dislikes for this work are sharply divided, it is surprising to see such a result.

According to FlixPatrol, an OTT (Over The Top, video streaming service) aggregation site on the 31st, ‘Sea of ​​Silence’ ranked third worldwide in the TV show category the previous day. ‘Sea of ​​Silence’ was ranked the same on the 29th. 1st place is ‘Emily is going to Paris’, and 2nd place is ‘The Witcher’ season 2. By country, ‘Sea of ​​Tranquility’ is running first in Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. In the domestic ranking, it is second after ‘That Year We Are’.

Starring Bae Doona and Gong Yoo, this work tells the story of space crews who went to the moon to solve this problem in the near future, where water is extremely scarce. The short film of the same name, released in 2014 by director Choi Hang-yong, was remade into an eight-part series.

The evaluation of this work at home and abroad is mixed. The rating of ‘Sea of ​​Silence’ on IMDB, the largest movie information site in the United States, is above average with a rating of 7.0, but there are criticisms of its rather slow development, some clumsy computer graphics and sets, and scientific errors. Variety said it was “satisfying,” but the South China Morning Post also called it “a failure.” In various online communities in Korea, there are evaluations such as ‘the directing that increases tension is excellent’, while there are many criticisms containing the content that ‘the limit of technology is exposed’.

An official from a domestic OTT company said, “Evaluations are always mixed.” “The Sea of ​​Silence is showing that Korean Netflix series, which has now been invested in some amount of capital, will receive worldwide attention.”
