A Star Original series available exclusively on Disney+, Connect stars Jung Hae-in as Ha Dong-soo – a new type of immortal human known as ‘Connect’, who is kidnapped by a gang of organ harvesters who are determined to take his eyes. After suddenly waking up on an operating table partway through the surgery, Dong-soo is able to escape with one eye remaining and later discovers that he can still see out of his missing eye, which is now being used by a serial killer who has been terrorizing the residents of Seoul. Determined to get back what was taken, Dong-soo will pursue the killer, taking whatever steps are necessary to make himself whole again.

Viewers around the world will be able to see a unique collaboration in Connect between prolific Japanese director Miike Takashi (Audition, Ichi the Killer, Gozu) who is directing his first Korean series, and an all-star cast of Korean talent, including Jung Hae-in (Snowdrop, D.P., Tune in for Love) as Ha Dongs-oo, Ko Kyung-pyo (Reply 1988, Seoul Vibe, Chicago Typewriter) as serial killer Oh Jin-seop, and Kim Hye-jun (Kingdom, Inspector Koo, Matrimonial Chaos) as the mysterious Irang.
