Netflix's new horror/thriller "The Bequeathed" has us shaking in our boots for more!

Kim Hyun Joo and Park Hee Soon are reunited for Netflix's new horror/thriller suspense drama The Bequeathed and we can't wait to share with you all the twists and turns! This drama has us on the edge of our seats! We share why it is so good!

Brought to you from the director of mega-hits Train to Busan and Hellbound, Yeon Sang Ho, Netflix's new drama, The Bequeathed, merges horror and family. In an interview with The Korean Herald, Yeon Sang Ho stated, "I found the idea of using family grave sites as a theme for a drama series intriguing. (With such a topic), I thought about what kind of story could unfold. Since family grave sites are undoubtedly associated with family, I felt that the central theme (of the drama series) should revolve around the story of a family."

Yeon Sang Ho explained in the interview that the global audience might find it difficult to understand the Korean tradition of bequeathing (leaving a will) family graves to relatives. However, with the drama revolving around the concept of family, he is sure that everyone will be able to relate in that regard.

Star veteran actors to match a star director

By casting veteran star actors from their previous suspense/thriller Trolley (2023), Netflix has assured themselves with another hit series! Kim Hyun Joo and Park Hee Soon are no strangers to the suspense/thriller genre as Trolley also took viewers in on a wild rollercoaster of emotions, twists and turns, and a surprise ending that had us hooked!

Sketchy characters galore!

In the midst of inheriting her family's grave site, Yoon Seo Ha gets tangled in a wave of questionable characters. From the private detective she hired to follow her cheating husband to her actual husband (who seems to be taking advantage of her kindness) to the professor she currently works for!

The fact that all these characters surrounding her act and make sly comments keeps us all on the edge of our seats! We can't figure out who is the actual bad guy or "just another character to move the story along"!

The Bequeathed is a must-watch!

The acting, character development, suspense, and storyline all come together to give the audience a thrill ride and keep us on the edge of our seats as we anticipate each episode in awe! This 6-episode masterpiece that director Yeon Sang Ho has created definitely should be at the top of your winter 2024 watchlist! We highly recommend all you suspense horror/thriller lovers to give The Bequeathed a try! Comment below with your thoughts on this amazing drama!
