Korean drama ‘Move to Heaven’ coming to Netflix

Kim Sung-ho’s Korean drama series Move to Heaven is on its way for an exclusive release on Netflix as an original, to tug at our heartstrings.

The web series will feature Lee Je-hoon (a Netflix constant) and Tang Jun-sang in leading roles and Ji Jin-hee, Lee Jae-wook and Hong Seung-hee in supporting roles.


Move to Heaven narrates a heart-warming story:

“Geu-ru, a young man with Asperger’s syndrome, and Sang-gu, who suddenly finds himself as Geu-ru’s guardian. The two work as trauma cleaners, clearing out the possessions of the deceased and uncovering the many stories that are left behind.”

The plot, scribed by Yoon Ji-ryun, takes inspiration from a non-fiction essay, Things Left Behind, written by Kim Sae-byul, a former “trauma cleaner” himself.

Jin-hee will play the role of Geu-ru’s father, Joe-wook will make a special appearance as Su-cheol, the man who gets Sang-gu sent to prison, and Seung-hee will feature as a next-door neighbour, Su-cheol, who regards Geu-ru as family.

Netflix released the news about the full casting just days after getting its audience on their toes with the announcement for Record of Youth.
