MBC’s upcoming sci-fi crossover project “SF8” released four new teasers!
Set in the near future, “SF8” tells the story of people who dream of a perfect society through technological advancements.

Lee Yeon Hee and Lee Dong Hwi will appear in director Roh Deok’s “Whole Body” (literal title). The caption reads that there is a future forecasting app with 96% accuracy called “Manshin.” Lee Yeon Hee seems to be searching for something, and Lee Dong Hwi questions why she’s looking for that particular object.

Lee Yoo Young, Ye Soo Jung, Yeom Hye Ran, and Yoon Kyung Ho will tell the story of a world run by robots in director Min Kyu Dong’s “Nursing” (literal title). In this particular place, one person must die if one person is to live. Lee Yoo Young, who plays a nurse robot with no feelings, asks, “If the patient has to die for the guardian to live, then can robots pray as well?”
