Bae Doona (‘Kingdom’, ‘Sense8’, ‘Stranger’) portrays the astrobiologist Doctor Song Ji-an determined to uncover the truth behind an accident at the now-abandoned Balhae Base Research Station on the moon.

Gong Yoo (‘Train to Busan’, ‘Goblin’, ‘Age of Shadows’, ‘Kim Ji-young: Born 1982’)  plays Han Yun-jae, the exploration team leader who must carry out a crucial mission with limited information. Yun-jae puts the safety of his team members above all else and does not refrain from putting himself in jeopardy to do so. 

Lee Joon (‘Father is Strange’, ‘Lucky’) takes on the role of head engineer Captain Ryu Tae-seok, who was an elite member of the Ministry of National Defense but volunteered for this dangerous mission in an attempt to escape the stifling environment at the Ministry. 

Director Choi Hang Yong, who directed the short film by the same name, will take the lead again, teaming up with writer Park Eunkyo of the film Mother and actor Jung Woo-sung as an executive producer of the show.

‘The Silent Sea’ will be produced by Artist Studio and released worldwide only on Netflix.
