It is the cable broadcaster’s first sci-fi drama and will be set both in present-day Korea and in 2037.
The two different timelines will exist concurrently, making it different from a previous time-slip drama that the cable channel had aired. The two different stories of the present and future will play out separately.
The drama centers on an alien invasion in 2017 and the subsequent new Earth in 2037, which is separated into the “Smart Earth” where people’s emotions are controlled and the “General Earth.”
Helmed by Min Jin-ki, who was responsible for “Saturday Night Live Korea,” the drama will also feature Lee Gi-kwang of the boy band Highlight.
“Circle” will hit TV screens in May.
