As subscribers eagerly await Avatar: The Last Airbender, season 6 of Formula 1: Pilots of their destiny or The 3-Body Problem on Netflix, the streaming platform has some surprises in store for us.

Indeed, if you like crazy programs, you should be served with the imminent release of Chicken Nugget. Do you remember Honey, I Shrunk the Kids?. GOOD. Now, imagine that with a woman transformed into a chicken nugget… It's still hard to know if this is yet another golden goose for Netflix or a future monumental flop.

Chicken Nugget: a South Korean series that is out of the ordinary

The synopsis of Chicken Nugget sounds like a fever dream… Choi Min-ah is the daughter of a company president. When she enters a mysterious machine, convinced that it is a device to help her fight against her fatigue, her life is turned upside down: she finds herself accidentally transformed into a chicken nugget… Her father and her secret admirer will then do everything to ensure that she regains her human form.

With a plot revolving around a young woman transformed into a fried chicken ball, Dakgangjeong sauce included, there is reason to raise eyebrows. Indeed, Chicken Nugget has the potential to be a dismal failure… Or a genius idea that will make fans of absurd and wacky humor die of laughter.

The South Korean series Chicken Nuggetis inspired by a webtoon (comics from South Korea, designed to be read on smartphones; editor's note) of the same name which has won over readers… So much so that Netflix wanted to offer it an adaptation worthy of the name . Chicken Nugget will consist of 12 episodes.

In the cast of Chicken Nugget ? Ryu Seung-ryong, a key actor in South Korean cinema (Miracle in Cell No.7 ; Korean Fried Chicken) was chosen to play this father desperate to find his girl. For his part, Jae-hong Ahn (Mask Girl) plays the role of the company intern who is in love with Choi Min-ah. Which pushes him to try everything to help him regain his human form. If you have seen the k-drama My Demon and 20th Century Girlon Netflix, you will recognize actress Kim Yoo-jung as Choi Min-ah. Although she only makes a brief appearance before transforming into a nugget…

Genius or total crush ? All we have to do is wait to discover the series on Netflix to form our own opinion. Chicken Nugget arrives March 15, 2024. Are you looking forward to discovering this crazy new series ?
