These monsters definitely enhanced the fear factor, making the entire series one of the scariest watch this year!
Sweet Home succeeded in scaring viewers with its dystopian setting, complex characters, graphic visuals and life-like monsters. The combination of these elements made for an enjoyable, albeit frightening and (for some) revolting, experience.
While we applaud the actors for their excellent portrayal of their respective characters, there is no doubt the non-human cast also deserve some the spotlight. In Sweet Home, monsters seemed to have taken over all of South Korea. The ones clinging to their humanity, except for the military, banded inside the Green Home Apartment complex. This is where the ultimate battle for survival takes place. And the residents (as well as the viewers) come face to face with these monsters.
For those who have not or are yet to read the webtoon, we bet you are curious about the details on these monsters. Let us know more about these supporting “actors” that send chills down our spine all throughout the series.
