James R | On 28, Sep 2019
Netflix has ordered Move to Heaven, a new Korean drama about trauma cleaners.
The series tells the story of Gu-ru who has Asperger’s syndrome and his uncle Sang-gu. The two meet through the death of Gu-ru’s father and end up running a trauma cleaning business together. Working as trauma cleaners, Gu-ru and Sang-gu uncover various stories of the deceased while experiencing different emotions and sentiments toward life, death and family.
The series is inspired by a nonfiction essay Things Left Behind (떠난 후에 남겨진 것들), written by professional trauma cleaner Kim Sae-byul. Move to Heaven is directed by Kim Sung-ho, who is well known for his humanistic approach in the film How to Steal a Dog, and written by Yoon Ji-ryun, whose works include such dramas as Boys Over Flowers and Angel Eyes.
Move to Heaven will launch exclusively on Netflix.
