Starring Lee Je-hoon and Tang Jun-sang, Move to Heaven will be coming soon to Netflix on 14 May. This 16-episode series will tell the heartwarming story of Geu-ru (played by Tang Jun-sang), a young man with Asperger’s syndrome, and Sang-gu (played by Lee Je-hoon), who suddenly finds himself as Geu-ru’s guardian.
The two work as ‘trauma cleaners’, a group of people clearing out the last possessions of the deceased and uncovering stories that are left behind. Geu-ru and Sang-gu join hands to help the final move of those who have passed away, and deliver their messages to loved ones.
Move to Heaven is an inspiring story based on a nonfiction essay Things Left Behind written by Kim Sae-byul who is also one of the first trauma cleaners in Korea. Director Kim Sung-ho and writer Yoon Ji-ryun team up to present diverse stories left behind of those who passed away, told from the honest and unbiased perspective of Geu-ru who has Asperger syndrome.
The show has received attention for its lineup of cast members who are known to bring sincerity and passion to their roles: Lee Je-hoon, Tang Jun-sang and Hong Seung-hee as well as Ji Jin-hee and Lee Jae-wook who make special appearances.
