Are you ready for your next Netflix obsession?
A brand new South Korean series, Move to Heaven recently arrived on Netflix. I knew straight away that it looked so good. It was also clear that I needed to be in the right frame of mind to watch this. I mean, I can watch countless horrors & thrillers…but drama, and more so this kind of drama dealing with these subjects, then, yeah, I need to be in the mood for it.
Move to Heaven – what’s it about?
Move to Heaven tells the story of a father and son called Geu-ru (he has Aspergers) who run a successful business – a ‘trauma cleaning’ company. What is Trauma Cleaning, you ask? Well, it’s when someone dies in their home and after the body has been removed, they call Move to Heaven to come in and give the place a very respectful deep cleanse.
Things take a drastic turn for Geu-ru when his father suddenly dies. His dad had his routine to perfection. Now in the blink of an eye, he is thrown into severe confusion, stress and uncertainty.
Before the father passed, he made sure that his son would be cared for. It is now up to his ex-con, gangster, cage-fighting brother to step into his father’s shoes and look after Gea-ru and help run the trauma cleaning business.
Do you see what I mean about drama? Haha, it is pretty damn hard-hitting, very well acted and wonderfully written, not to mention the performances, especially our lead with Aspergers.
I am only on episode three and it is so addictive. At the minute, it isn’t very dark at all but it really could take a dark turn. Even if doesn’t, we still have an astonishing, heartfelt, funny drama.
That may sound like quite a lot of plot details, but trust me…it ain’t. Everything I have told you is featured in the trailer or official synopsis.
Season one of Move to Heaven is now available to stream on Netflix. We hope you enjoy it. As always, thanks for reading.
