Netflix Allies With Climax Studio To Produce Animated Korean Film ‘Lost In Starlight’

The Netflix streaming service is partnering with the South Korean entertainment company Climax Studio to produce the animated feature film ‘Lost In Starlight.’

“Netflix’s very first Korean-language animated film will be the love story Lost in Starlight, starring the voices of K-drama powerhouses Kim Tae-ri and Hong Kyung,” Netflix said in a statement. “Most recently seen in talk-of-the-town K-horror series Revenant, the two have already proven they have an uncanny chemistry. In Lost in Starlight, they lend their voices to the roles of astronaut Nan-young and musician Jay, who embark on the longest-ever long-distance relationship — one that bridges Earth and Mars.”

The movie will be directed by Han Ji-won (Clearer than You Think) who co-wrote the screenplay with Kang Hyun-joo (The Scarlet Letter).

Netflix explains that the plot will follow “Nan-young, whose astronaut mom failed to return to Earth when things went awry during her Mars probe. Nan-young has always dreamed of exploring space too, and longs to go to Mars in hopes of finding a trace of her mom. Her dream comes true when she is selected as one of the astronauts for a Mars probe project. Before she blasts off though, she meets Jay, a musician who also fixes retro sound instruments. (It’s all thanks to an old turntable that Nan-young inherited from her mom.)”

The award-winning actress Kim Tae-ri (1987: When the Day Comes, Space Sweepers) will take on the role of Nan-young while Hong Kyung (My Lawyer, Mr. Jo 2: Crime and Punishment, The Effect of a Finger Flick on a Breakup) will be performing the character of Jay.

Climax Studio previously developed the feature films ‘Jung_E,’ ‘Jazzy Misfits,’ and ‘Concrete Utopia’ as well as the television shows ‘Hellhound,’ ‘If You Wish Upon Me,’ ‘Cursed,’ ‘Parasyte: The Grey,’ and the video game ‘Gormiti: The Lords of Nature.’
