Now in production in South Korea and set to debut later this year, "Dr. Brain" is an emotional journey that follows a brain scientist who is obsessive about figuring out new technologies to access the consciousness and memories of the brain.

As Bong Joon-ho said, ""Once you overcome the 1-inch-tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films".

Glad to see this happening. Hopefully we'll get shows from Japan/China/Taiwan/India etc too.

It’s live action, based on a webcomic.

In SK many webcomics are translated to live action and are a big part of television.

My favorite webcomic adaptation is The Sound of Your Heart. Takes a little to adjust to the comedy but it leaves you wanting more. I think it’s still on Netflix.

Sounds intriguing. Looking forward to it!

Some will trash this because it requires reading. Their loss, I suspect (Parasite was amazing).
