Now, Parasyte is about unidentified parasitic life forms that live off of human hosts and strive to grow their power. As they start to disrupt society, a group of humans wage war against the rising evil parasites.
According to further details released by Netflix, the legendary director Yeon Sang-ho, the man behind Hellhound(2021), Pennisula(2020), Train to Busan(2016), and more, has taken charge of the new K-Drama, Parasyte: The Grey.
The original Parasyte manga series is a well-known classic in Japan and already has a popular anime series, Parate: the Maxim, and a Japanese Live-Action adaptation, Parasyte: Movie Series.
So it's to be seen how this K-Drama style live-action adaptation fares to the franchises' previous success.
