Hot on the heels of Netflix's breakout South Korean hit Squid Game, Apple has rolled out its first Korean-language original series this month, to coincide with the launch of its Apple TV+ streaming service in South Korea.

Based on a Korean web comic of the same name, Dr Brain is a six-episode sci-fi thriller about a cold-hearted neurologist Koh Sewon who tries to find clues to a mysterious family accident through brain experiments.

Apple's foray into original Korean content comes as the country's entertainment industry reaches new global popularity, from K-pop superstars such as BTS to the 2020 Oscar-winning South Korean film Parasite, and now Squid Game, which became Netflix's biggest original series launch.

Director Kim Jee-woon said after the consecutive success of such Korean content, global audiences began to understand Korean culture through artistic works and that he had made an extra effort to get the translations right.

"I hope Dr Brain can prove there are diverse works in South Korea that cover a wide variety of genres, sensibilities and materials as much as previous mega hit Korean series," Kim said in an interview with Reuters.

Lead actor Lee Sun-kyun, who will be familiar to international audiences from his role in Parasite, said his role as Koh is one of a man dragged into a "whirlpool of emotions" whose connections to other people's minds made him reflect on his own faults.

"It is a very deep science fiction mysterious thriller, but at the same time it is a drama about how a man who was destitute of feelings happened to receive others' emotions due to side effects of brain scanning," Lee told Reuters.
