WATCH: Song Joong Ki Stars in an Epic Space Adventure That Will Make You Feel Alive Again
Space Sweepers lands on Netflix real soon!
(SPOT.ph) We all know Korea is top-tier when it comes to drama series, genre-bending black comedies, and insane thrillers, but what about science fiction? We know you'll want to see how their big-ticket adventure movie Space Sweepers will match up to their impressive track record, so you'd best mark your calendars for when the movie is released worldwide on Netflix on February 5! To add to the excitement, (and also for your first glimpse of Song Joong Ki in outer space) check out the fun teaser below.
Epic Space Adventure!
Move over, Guardians of the Galaxy, there's a new mismatched space crew in town! Space Sweepers is set in 2092. The crew of spaceship Victory—genius space pilot Tae Ho (Joong Ki), mysterious ex-space pirate Captain Jang (Kim Tae Ri), spaceship engineer Tiger Park (Jin Sun Kyu), and reprogrammed military robot Bubs (Yoo Hai Jin)—make their livelihood salvaging space debris.
When the motley crew stumble upon a dangerous robot wanted by the Space Guards during one of their hunts—one that happens to look exactly like a harmless seven-year-old girl—they initially decide to ransom the robot-girl. But their simple scheme soon turns into something far more complicated.
We last saw Song Joong Ki on Netflix as Arthdal Chronicles's Eunseom, which was set in a fictional world from the past. Now we get to see him take on the role of captain in outer space nearly a century in the future! So in case you've got the blues and need an adrenaline boost—or just want to leave Earth for a bit, mark your calendars for this massive adventure.
