Netflix has recently become a main source for Asian-produced content. From anime series that it’s licensed to the Korean film it’s acquired, paying customers have now found themselves looking to the streaming service as their go-to for overseas drama. Netflix will now need to make room for one more project: a Korean superhero movie.

 

Yeong Sang-ho, the director of the zombie hit Train to Busan, has a new film, Psychokinesis, which follows the story of a young father who tries to save his young daughter, who possesses psychic superpowers. Sang-ho’s follow-up film has been long-anticipated in South Korea, and the project will be viewable internationally thanks to the deal made between the South Korean company Next Entertainment World and Netflix.

Coming on the heels of the successful collaboration with Bong Joon-ho for Okja, this marks yet another giant acquisition for Netflix. It also recently announced that it will be bringing the medieval South Korean zombie drama Kingdom to its service next year. Thanks to deals like this, fans of Korean dramas and films have a plethora of programming to dive into.
Psychokinesis is set to stream on Netflix in 2018.
