Hellbound: What Is The Plot Of The Show?

“Unearthly beings deliver bloody condemnations, sending individuals to hell and giving rise to a religious group founded on the idea of divine justice.”

Amid the utter chaos caused by these inexplicable supernatural events, Jung Jinsu, the leader of an emerging religious association called the New Truth, makes himself heard. He claims that only those who have sinned are condemned and that these incidents stand for God’s will to lead humanity on the right path.

The spearhead, a group of his followers who blindly trust him, take on the punishment of those who oppose this divine will, and life becomes the proverbial hell on earth.

Attorney Min Hyejin challenges Jung Jinsu by claiming that the hellish incidents were merely supernatural events. It allies itself with the few people who try to protect the damned and make the earth the world of men again, not the gods. Together they stand up against the chaos caused by the New Truth.
