Goodbye Earth: Trailer Talk

With a striking name like that, this upcoming Netflix series immediately caught my attention.

‘Goodbye Earth’ is a K-drama series wherein citizens of South Korea are told that an asteroid will inevitably hit the planet, with their country being the impact location. With only 300 days until impact, the series looks at what various citizens will do with the time remaining.



South Korean cinema and shows are dominating the streaming platform and look to continue to do so with this latest series. This time, it seems that the polarizing 2021 film ‘Don’t Look Up’ was the basis of inspiration. And yet, while that film was satirical, ‘Goodbye Earth’ is taking a much more serious and darker tone, something that South Korean cinema and TV has demonstrated it can do perfectly.

While the ending will undoubtably be predictable, it’s the journey the series will take that intrigues me: one scenario showed a woman wanting to exact revenge on criminals before the world ends. It’s just one example to the potential that the series has in demonstrating what people will do in the short time they have left. 

‘Goodbye Earth’ has a familiar concept, but it’s the execution of that very concept that makes this interesting. While Western films have gone for an action-packed or satirical route with this idea, this upcoming series looks like it will be more grounded and emotional.
