Island is a titular adaptation of a webcomic and focuses on a group of people as they attempt to fight off evil forces hellbent on global annihilation, set on Jeju Island. Pan (One The Woman’s Kim Nam-gil) is an immortal monster hunter who has been protecting the world from evil demons for thousands of years, while Mi-ho (Search: WWW’s Lee Da-hee) is a conglomerate heiress who is unaware of a power she possesses. Teaming up alongside both of them is a young exorcist priest named John, played by Cha Eun-woo (True Beauty).
The brand-new 15-second teaser was released by South Korean streaming platform TVING on November 8, and features a montage of the high-octane action scenes to be expected from the upcoming series, starring the characters of all three of its main cast.
Island is slated for a December premiere in Korea on TVING and globally via Amazon Prime Video as previously announced. An exact release date and broadcast schedule will be disclosed at a later stage.
