As the novel coronavirus outbreak continues to claim lives across the world, a shocking clip from a Korean-drama series is doing rounds on the internet and has left the netizens spooked. If your country is on lockdown, as it should be, you are likely either working from home or indulging in some of the traditional fervour of Netflix and Chill. And, if you have kept up with the viral trends around, you will likely know about My Secret Terrius now.
My Secret Terrius Korean thriller web series that is available for free streaming on Netflix is something you would have never predicted. Conspiracy theories have been floating around that this series was successful enough to predict the incidence of the novel coronavirus pandemic that we are now suffering from.
The web series takes you through a roller coaster ride but it is the first episode of the 10th season, at exactly 53 minutes, the story tells you of things that have been exactly happening around the world now concerning the novel coronavirus.
While the clip with that conspiracy theory has been circulating on all the social media platforms, things escalated when people starting joining the dots of the show to the ones that are happening in the current world. And the most striking part is the fact that this series was released in 2018.
My Secret Terrius – Plot
If you look through the synopsis of the movies, it says, “A secret agent who detaches himself from the world after a failed operation tries to unravel the mystery behind a neighbour’s death.”
But, as usual, and cliche crime thriller as it might sound like, the actual story of this web series left people in a complete state of shock. If you thought the 2011 movie, Contagion seemed a lot similar to what is happening right now, watching “The Secret, Terrius” is going to leave you with your mind blown.
The part of the story that everyone has been raving about is the first episode of the tenth season, especially the 53rd minute of the episode.
In that part, we find a doctor handing over some of the documents to a pivotal character of the show stating that they need to conduct further research but the current reports suggest that it is likely a mutant version of the coronavirus.
When the character asks whether it is similar to MERS to which the doctors suggest that MERS, SARS and Coronavirus, they all fall into the common family but the coronavirus is responsible for attacking the respiratory system.
During the 2015 MERS epidemic, the mortality rate was at 20% but the same has been tweaked and mutated in the coronavirus to an extent that it can stretch the mortality rate to a whopping 90%.
Just when these clips started surfacing on the streaming platform of Netflix, it started trending and took a spot among the highly searched options on Netflix.
Even though this is just a web series, the parallel similarities of the plotline behind this has left people in a state of complete shock. The kind of similar situations is equally worrying and at the same time, terrifying as well.
The series has been directed by Sanghun Park and written by Ji-Young Oh. The series has been produced by Agnieszka Pajak. It was released back in 2018 and has 32 episodes in total.
