Hi @triplem. I haven't seen Drama Stage yet, but yes, SF8 is an anthology like Drama Stage. SF8 looks promising as it was invited to screen at the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, ahead of its scheduled August airing on MBC. The futuristic theme of the drama looks interesting as well. The creator has actually been working on this project for two years, where the casting of the actors lasted for a year.

The main poster of the 'SF8 Project' is unveiled!

 

Two main posters were unveiled for Soo Film's crossover project "SF8," in collaboration with MBC, the Korean Film Directors' Association (DGK) and Wavve.

 

"SF8" is a project in which a total of eight directors, including directors Min Kyu-dong, Noduk, Hangaram, Lee Yoon-jung, Kim Eui-seok, Ahn Kook-jin, Oh Ki-hwan, and Jang Chul-soo, each of whom are affiliated with DGK, have completed various materials such as artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), robots, fantasy, horror, superpowers, etc. The "SF8 Project," recently drew attention by releasing teaser trailer along with the news of the invitation to the 24th Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival.

 

The released main poster is definitely drawing attention with actors of extraordinary presence. The 16 actors, who played unique characters in eight different films, will surprise the audience with new looks that have not been shown in any of the films so far. Lee Yoo-young and Ye Soo-jung of SF8: Nurse, Lee Yeon-hee and Lee Dong-hwi of SF8: Whole Body, Lee Si-young and Ha-joon of SF8: Blink, Kim Bo-ra and Choi Sung-eun of SF8: Astronaut Joan, Moon So-ri and Jang Yoo-sang of SF8: Human Proof, Lee David and Shin Eun-soo of SF8: I Can't Love In A Week, Choi Si-won and Uee of SF8: Love Virtually, and Hani and Shin So Yool of SF8: White Crow.

 

Expectations are high on what various stories the eight directors and 16 actors, who have gathered together with freshness and skill, will tell through the Korean version of the original SF Anthology series.

 

The "SF8 Project," which unveiled the main poster and will create another stir among prospective audiences, will be exclusively pre-released on the OTT platform Wavve on July 10 and will be aired on MBC on August 17.

SF8_series-300x198.jpg

 

South Korean network MBC (Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation) is launching SF8, an original sci-fi anthology series produced in collaboration with Korean OTT platform Wavve and DGK (Directors’ Guild of Korea).

Each of the eight episodes will be directed by a different Korean films director, boasting different styles, but all centring on people who dream of a perfect society.

 

The anthology will explore themes such a artificial intelligence, virtual reality, robotics, superpowers and horror. The director’s cut will land on Wavve next month, while the original episodes will be shown weekly on MBC TV from 17 August.

 

Wavve operator Content Wavve recently signed a deal to supply Korean series and films to NBCUniversal, to be shown on its own streaming service Peacock.

 

Creator of SF8, Min Kyu-dong (Herstory, The Treacherous), commented: “Science-fiction films were the driving force behind many Korean film directors’ dreams. Unfortunately, due to the relatively high budget and narrow market limitations, most production ideas have not been realized.

“Being the president of DGK for the past two years, I searched for short-form projects in which film directors can expand their creative opportunities. Through collaboration with MBC and Wavve, I am happy that we were able to compile the energy of recent science fiction novels into moving images.”

MBC Presents (8 x 50’) a Korean Original Sci-Fi Anthology Series

MBC opens doors to a brave new world of storytelling, a Korean original sci-fi anthology series. The project entitled <SF8> (8 x 50’) is produced in collaboration with Wavve, Korea’s largest OTT platform and DGK (Directors’ Guild of Korea). Each of the 8 episodes are directed by one of 8 acknowledged film directors of Korea, raising high expectations among both Korean film and drama fans, as well as sci-fi enthusiasts.

 

<SF8> (8 x 50’) revolves around people who dream of a perfect society. It explores the most of-the-moment themes such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality, robots, games, fantasy, horror, superpowers and disasters.

 

Filled with compelling characters and powerful stories, the project awaits its rendez-vous with the audience this summer. The director’s cut will be released online on Wavve in July 2020 and the original episodes will be aired on MBC TV at 9:30pm prime-time every week starting from August 17th, 2020.

 

Every episode portrays different style and creative vision of each of the 8 directors. To name a few, <Empty Body> directed by KIM Ui seok depicts a future world populated by human-imitating AIs, <The Prayer> directed by MIN Kyu dong pictures a hospital ward where caregiver robots agonize over the patients and <Love Virtually> directed by Oh Ki hwan is a comic love story about a boy and a girl who meet via virtual reality eventually falling in love in reality as well. Some episodes are gripping horror or adventure stories, other are emotionally intense and draws groundbreaking visuals, but one thing for sure is that all of the 8 futuristic tales are entirely different from what you would normally expect from a Korean drama series.

 

Creator of <SF8>, MIN Kyu dong expresses his hope towards the project. “Science fiction films were the driving force behind many Korean film directors’ dreams. Unfortunately, due to the relatively high budget and narrow market limitations, most production ideas have not been realized. Being the president of DGK (Directors’ Guild Korea) for the past 2 years, I searched for short form projects in which film directors can expand their creative opportunities. Through collaboration with MBC and Wavve, I am happy that we were able to compile the energy of recent science fiction novels into moving images”.

 

He also added his thanks to all the directors and the production team of <SF8> for the successful completion of production despite the challenging situations due to COVID-19 crisis. MBC points out the significance of <SF8> production for the Korean media industry. “<SF8> is a theatrical film and TV drama crossover production which we have co-produced with DGK from the initial stage of selecting the original stories. Moreover, it is all the more meaningful that <SF8> is a high quality multi-platform development between Wavve and MBC.”
