Mask Girl is an upcoming South Korean Netflix Original thriller TV show directed by Kim Yong Hoon, and based on the popular Korean webtoon of the same name.
The webtoon on which the series is based is listed as 18+, so it’s only meant for adults. It’s unclear if the k-drama adaptation will hold back on the rating to attract a larger audience, or if it will be faithful and keep the same themes.
