Adapted from a popular webtoon of the same name, Sweet Home is a suspenseful series based on the unique premise of a world in which people turn into monsters that reflect their own individual desires.

Lee Jin-uk, whose explosive acting in the drama Voice proved his unique brilliance as a character actor, portrays the mysterious Pyeong Sang-uk. Lee Si-young, who is known for her intense acting in No Mercy, plays the tough-as-nails Seo Yi-gyeong, an original character created for the Netflix adaptation, which is expected to keep fans of the webtoon guessing.
Sweet Home also features a colorful ensemble cast of newcomers and veteran actors, such as Lee Do-hyun (Hotel del Luna), Kim Nam-hee (Mr. Sunshine), Go Min-si (Love Alarm) Park Kyu-young (Romance is a Bonus Book), Go Youn-jung (He Is Psychometric), Kim Kap-soo (Designated Survivor: 60 Days) and Kim Sang-ho (Kingdom).
