From Kim Jee-woon, the director of A Tale of Two Sisters and I Saw The Devil, comes a new sci-fi mystery live-action series that will boggle minds and challenge what's real from what's not.

Dr. Brain tells the story of Lee Se-won (Lee Sun-kyun), a genius brain scientist who has had excellent memory since he was young. When tragedy befalls his family, he takes the risk of brain syncing with the dead to access their memories in the pursuit of the truths behind the strange accident. Dr. Brain was adapted from Hongjacga's popular webcomic of the same name, which was published in 2016 via Kakao. An Apple Original production, it is the first Korean-language series to premiere on the Apple-based video streaming platform since its kickoff in November 2019.

Other cast members of Dr. Brain include Lee Yoo-young, Park Hee-soon, Seo Ji-hye, and Lee Jae-won.

The six-episode live-action series will be available on Apple TV+ worldwide starting November 4, 2021, with one episode streaming every week until December 10.
