Parasite was undoubtedly the surprise smash hit of the last 12 months. The Korean drama, which was directed by Bong Joon-ho, became the first foreign language film to win the 'best picture' at the Academy Awards, catapulting it into the consciousness of an even larger audience as a result.

It has also introduced people to the world of Korean cinema, with a new offering on Netflix looking like it has the potential to be another international success from the country.

Time to Hunt, which star's Parasite's Woo-sik Choi, will be released on the streaming sight on Thursday, April 23rd.

It is set in a dystopian future, where a financial crisis in the Asian country sees slums poverty-stricken spring up major cities. The movie follows the attempts of four friends to break this cycle by planning an ambitious heist.

The description under the trailer on YouTube reads:

In hopes of escaping a dystopian city and a chance at a new life, four friends with nothing to lose plan a casino heist. But what seemed like a bulletproof plan turns into a chase for their lives when they fall prey to a mysterious hunter who wants them dead.
