The first Korean sci-fi blockbuster set in space, Space Sweeper, will be released exclusively on Netflix. The film was scheduled to open in theatres on Sept 23, but the release was postponed due to Covid-19, and there are now no immediate plans to show the film in theatres.

Set in 2092, Space Sweepers by director Jo Sung-hee is about a space cleanup crew trying to sell a weapon of mass destruction: the humanoid Dorothy. With a star-studded cast including Song Joon-ki and Kim Tae-ri, Space Sweepers was a highly anticipated movie that theatres hoped would revive the Korean movie industry suffering from the pandemic.
